  • I’d suggest using better conditioner, or you can buy hair oils that help with tangles.

  • I use a lot of conditioner to brush them out. I also brush my kids hair when they are conditioning it in the bath. Much earlier. If you have bigger kids get them a wide tooth comb and brush their hair in the shower whilst they are conditioning it.

  • Try a tangle teezer brush. They aren’t cheap but they work well

  • I always used conditioner after shampooing. Then I had a spray that detangled pretty well. I brushed hair when it was wet so the knots didn’t dry and set. Then I used to plait it before bed to avoid excess knots

  • Use a special conditioner and use special brush

  • I do use baby oil.

  • Michel Mercier detangling brushes work really well for me. Gets out knots without pain or hair breakage.

  • Definitely keeping hair shorter, also trimming regularly helps as split ends make tangles quicker. Always having detangle spray and detangle brush on standby

  • Fine hair is a nightmare with tangles best to put conditioner in and either plait it or tie it up overnight whilst they sleep. Shampoo and condition again in the morning before combing through.

  • leave in conditioner. There are even some ones with cute little kids ones with kids characters.

  • Detangler brush

  • Get a kid version tangleteezer brush , my daughter is 3 years old and we have been using the tangle teezer brush to detangle her hair since she’s very little , works like a gem! She has very fine and long hair , can’t imagine brushing without it .

  • Use a spray in conditioner and a LOT of patience!

  • I use a detangling spray – a Pantene one. I also have to keep my daughters hair shorter than shoulder length at the moment to keep it under control.

  • I use a lot of conditioner for my 6 year old when I wash her hair. Also, try not to wash he hair too frequently because it gets dry and knottier. Also, I learnt how to braid, so I have it braided every day, so when i re-do it there shouldn’t be any knots. Also, when I do brush it, i always spray de-angler, and after I wash her hair and dry it, I put leave-in conditioner. A lot of effort, but worth it! We’re almost tear free :D
