Mommy nooooooo!!!!!! *chases child around room with comb*
Does this setting sound familiar to you? As a kid with a lot of hair, my mom (and aunts) were often overwhelmed with my hard to manage hair. Tired arms and tears where the norm. Well those days are no more with simple practices that can make washing her precious curls a breeze!
These are the tools you will need
Grab some toys, coloring books, and movies they will help keep your little princess occupied. Snacks are great too! TAKE BREAKS if she begins to get antsy let her stretch and grab a drink of water. You want this experience to run as smoothly as possible.
Finger detangling is your best friend!! Spraying a conditioner mix (w/plain H2O) will help “melt” those tangles and knots. The conditioner I used (pictured above) is a cheap conditioner by VO5 I found at Meijer. You can use whatever you have on hand.
1. Saturate hair with conditioner mix.
2. Section hair in workable sections and secure with hair clips
3. Working one section at a time. Begin separating any tangles or knots with ONLY your fingers.
4. GENTLY comb out any further tangles with a shower comb or paddle brush. If you run into a ‘trouble’ area STOP combing and work out the tangle with your fingers and proceed with the comb.
5. Braid (I find that these stay together better than twist) the detangled section.
6. Continue until entire head is detangled.
