Y’all, I sell beautiful hair accessories and have three daughters. You’d think that hair is a priority in our house. But we’re a busy family, and honestly, with these super comfortable hair accessories, we sleep in the same style, so often our hair is the last thing we think of.
Many times, I’m quickly fixing ponytails as we walk into the church building (or co-op or the grocery store), and hoping nobody notices the tangles that didn’t get removed… even though I reminded them to brush their hair.
As cool as it might be to just let them grow out dreads, I’m just not ready for that. So for now, I’ll continue harping the importance of brushing your hair every single day. Some tricks we’ve learned to make this process a little less agonizing (aka a few less tears):
- When bathing, leave conditioner on the hair for at least 5 minutes,
- Use a spray-on detangler immediately after bathing on towel dried hair, and again later when brushing out tangles,
- For a natural detangler, massage lavender and orange essential oil into the hair,
- Invest in a tangle brush,
- Occupy their mind with something to do while brushing.
That’s not too hard, right? So let’s get to detangling!
BTW, If you’re not using a tangle brush, I urge you to check out the link below for the Teazer! These work great! My thick haired daughter uses the Thick & Curly, while my other two use a regular tangle brush.
