My daughter screams every time I try to comb her hair - no matter how gentle and careful I am - she reacts as if I am torturing her and says it "hurts." I remain calm, and talk softly as I try to comb it after bath time (I use coconut oil and natural conditioners to detangle), but it doesn't help. Any advice? Is this abnormal that it is so painful for her or that she reacts like this? At first, I thought she was just being dramatic, but months later, I realize that she really seems to be in pain from it.
