Top 7 Tips to Taming the Tangle Tempers
From the ages of 2 to 10 years, my daughter had very fine hair. A lot of it, but very fine. She hated having it brushed, saying it hurt too much. I discovered that the problem was fine hair tangles.
We lived in North Queensland, so the children were never out of the pool. They were always playing, chasing each other, riding bikes and horses. They were always active and mostly outdoors. I would plait my daughter’s hair whenever she would let me.
But the combination of an active child with fine hair and cotton pillowcases made the problem that much worse. The best solution? Silk pillowcases.
My niece’s daughter is active and outdoors as well, but she now sleeps on a silk pillowcase. My niece has noticed incredible results – her daughter has much less breakage, especially around the delicate hairline. No more morning tangle tempers. It makes such a difference.
Of course, using Silk pillowcases isn’t the only way to tame the tangle tempers. My top taming tips are…
Keep your child’s hair plaited during the day
If your child’s hair is longer than shoulder-length, have them wear a swim cap in the pool
Always use a good quality shampoo and conditioner.
Use a shower cap on your little one’s head on days you are not washing their hair.
Apply a hair oil every morning and night – most of these oils can be used on wet or dry hair.
Use a wide tooth comb to detangle wet hair
And… have your child sleep on a silk pillowcase as early as it is safe for them to be using an adult pillow.
