Knots and tangles mean tears and trauma for many tots. A few easy tips can make the daily detangle an enjoyable time for kids and caregivers alike. These tips work wonders for both wet and dry hair and thus can be used in the morning and before bedtime.
Gather supplies in advance to ensure that the process goes quickly. You will need a wide toothed comb, Hot Tot’s Conditioning Detangler, and a hair clip.
Section the top half of your child’s hair off and pin it up with a hair clip. Small sections are best. Start with the hair closest to the neck.
Spray the hair with Hot Tot’s Conditioning Detangler. A little goes a long way. Begin combing. Start with the end of the strands and work towards the scalp. Use your free hand to hold the section of hair to minimize tugging and discomfort. Short strokes are best, as they will help prevent hair breakage.
As each piece is free of knots, add a bit more from the section in the clip. Repeat the process until your child’s tresses are tangle free.
Prevent future problems by keeping hair clean and using Hot Tot’s Conditioner daily. A loose braid can help prevent knots at night and make the morning routine a much easier.
