Start with Wet Hair:
Wet hair is generally easier to detangle. You can do this during bath time or use a spray bottle to dampen the hair before detangling. Our salon-quality continuous spray bottle refreshes hair with a fine mist, evenly distributing water for quick hair saturation without dripping.Invest in a good detangling spray or make your own by mixing water with a small amount of conditioner. Spray it on the hair to add moisture and make it easier to comb through.
Use a Wide-Tooth Comb or Fingers:
Choose to use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers instead of a brush. This helps to minimize breakage and pain. Start detangling from the tips and work your way up to the roots. A great time to detangle is while the conditioner is in the hair, use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle. The conditioner provides slip, making it easier to work through knots.
Divide and Conquer:
Section the hair into smaller parts.. This makes the detangling process more manageable and less overwhelming for both you and your child. Start combing from the bottom of the hair to the top of the head. This will reduce running into knots and snags.
Take your time and be patient. Rushing through the process can lead to more tangles and discomfort. Use a gentle touch and stop if you encounter resistance.
Remember that each person's hair is unique, so it may take some trial and error to find the best routine for your child's hair. Consistency with a gentle and patient approach will contribute to a more pleasant detangling experience.
