Lowell asked for a little girl with blue eyes and blonde curls.
He got her.
However, he should have ordered curls that don’t tangle!
After many tears, we have finally found a way to get the tangles out of this curly mass with a minimum amount of pain to both Megan and Mommy.
I researched the internet for a homemade detangler and found one that used water and hair conditioner . . . LOTS of conditioner. I tried that a while, but didn’t like the greasy feel of so much hair conditioner. It got all over my hands and the brush as I was combing her hair!
So in a bright moment . . . yes, I have those every decade or so . . . I decided to significantly reduce the ratio of conditioner to water. Since we already were using a water bottle to wet her hair, I thought, “Why not combine the two?”
This has worked great for us!
- All you need is: 1 empty spray bottle, water, 1 squirt of hair conditioner, 1 mass of tangles and a brush.
- Just fill your spray bottle about 3/4 full of tap water, add one squirt of hair conditioner and shake it well with the lid on. Use this in place of a water bottle when spraying curly tangles.
I like to spray it all over, underneath, in the middle and on top.
Then we begin combing out the tangles, starting at the bottom and working our way up.
Sometimes we hit more tangles underneath and inside the mass and need to give it another squirt or two.
Finally, we are getting somewhere.
And now it’s time to go to school.
