    Mine used to be like that, only thing that worked was me getting my hair cut a bit shorter than normal, it made my hair sort it's self out.

    spray in conditioner, i think you need to have a word with your haidresser, she/he will be able to advise on something good i would think, they will also know your daughters hair

    i use adult conditioner on my daughters hair, and tesco baby detangling spray and put it in plats when she goes to bed.

    or perhaps she could have layers put in, to thin it out but keep the length

    Has she had it cut recently? If not it could just be due a good trim as the ends could be splitting. I also use adults shampoo and conditioner on my 9 year olds hair which works quite well. But now she has had it cut to just below the shoulder and it is much better.

    Brushing tip - start at the bottom and brush a bit there. Then do a section slightly higher. This works really well because when you start at the top and brush all the way down the knots just gather at the bottom into one big tangle.

    Does she always wear it down? Plaiting it at night helps really well and then always have it plaited.

    Good luck

    No need to worry about knots after brushing ever again :lol:

    Frizz ease and GHDs

    when you comb the hair start at the ends of the hair and work up gradually rather than starting from the top, this just pushes the knots into a big clump

    Use a paddle brush to brush the hair BEFORE washing it then when still wet do the combing technique above

    My 6 years olds hair was like that until I invested in a tangle teezer for 9.99. Great item and really makes brushing her hair a pleasure - there are no more tears in the mornings now and she actually likes having her hair brushed. The best tenner I have ever spent!!
    This is where i got mine from.

    [COLOR="DarkOrchid"]Yeah,
    just use a leave-in spray conditioner or spray detangler
    make sure you are gentle when combing it through, use
    a wide tooth comb..
    hope this helps //(*_*)\\[/COLOR]

    an Isinis brush is great too!!!

    The 'Aussie' leave in conditioner is excellent for detangling hair - use it on mine and my daughter's.

    You can get it in Boots and Sainsburys for about £3.50.

    I think someone on here mention the other day about satin pillowcases help to minimise tangles.
    I use the below from avaon they do a few in different flavours so to speak and always on offer 2 for £2 at the mo.

    thanks everyone
    she has it cut and thinned out every 6 weeks they advised against layering as it would make it look like ther is more of it
    it seems to tangle straight away as soon as comb leaves the hair
    i notice she brushes and then puls the comb out before getting to the bottom of her hair
    i keep telling her how to do it but she is a bit lazy and still doesnt do it properly even the hairdresser told her how to do it
    she really doesnt want her hair cut shorter but i think she needs to at least until she can look after it a bit better
    she uses conditioner every wash
    have tried de-tanglers before but they werent much good but will try some of these recomended thanks
    also i will invest in one of them paddle brushes or the tangle teezer
    thanks for help

    i use frizz ease and now and again i straighten it but it still gets knotty when its straight,it only looks nice for 2 mins

    Maybe she got inverted follicles or something called that,my partner apprantly as,when he was way younger he had long hair and it be always knotty and the hairdresser said it was inverted follicles I think.

    You mean it looks like this?

    its very similar to the above nest yes

    My eldest has straight hair and my youngest curly, eldest tangles and knots all the time, youngest comb goes straight through.
    We use tea tree oil conditioner (also supposedly helps against nits!) and brush it through whilst damp...I can't get on with the detangling spray it seems to make her hair feel sticky to me.

    oh never heard of that



    yeh i'm not sure if that was the term for it but its got something to do with how the hair is growing wether it becomes more tangled or not,my partner at work so he not ehre to ask but I think its called that.

    Hmmm, haven't been through that yet with my 2, thank God! :giggle:

    Is she still on warranty?

    Return to base imo.

    The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle conditioner that they do is really good too. My youngest has curly hair and it can be difficult to manage. As the name suggests leave in for 3 mins. and wash out, I can get anything through her hair afterwards - even the nit comb!

    oh great i will get it from there then
    pity though as i just had my shopping delivered this morning

    Being a hairdresser and have 2 daughters with naturally frizzy curly hair, the best thing I found was Pantene shampoo and conditioner.

    My youngest's hair is so frizzy she has to wet it every morning to brush it, as its soooo knotty.

    I too would advise a conditioning spray, but what I swore on was "Infusium".... if you ask your hairdresser, she might be able to get it for you. It is absolutely excellent.

    Good luck
