Cathy’s curly hair tip:
My 2 ½ year old daughter has very curly hair which gets unbelievably snarled when she’s in bed at night. Before I discovered this hack, we did the tug-n-cry every morning in front of the mirror. One morning, I discovered that if I let her brush her own teeth with her vibrating, battery-powered fire truck toothbrush, she is so preoccupied she doesn’t even notice I’m combing her hair. We get her hair straightened out and her teeth brushed at the same time with no screaming.
My daughter has curly hair, too. I find that misting her hair with water and then spraying with a light leave-in conditioner works wonders for the tangles. The children’s detanglers do nothing for her.
