So my almost 4 year old has super curly hair. I have yet to find a product to help with tangles. We have a battle everytime I go to brush it, I only brush it when we are going somewhere otherwise it would be horrible. The only thing thta really helps is conditioner in the bath and brush while she is in there but she can't take a bath all the time. Any advice.

Dreadlocks work really well for curly hair... Then you would never have to brush it again.. ♥

Try WEN. It works great. My daughter has stright hair on top and very curley hair underneath. Her hair is below her shoulders so when she gets in the shower I get her all wet, put the product in her hair and clip it up so I can continue with the shower. The shower is done after 5 minutes and then I rinse her hair. The product is so good I let her brush/comb her own hair after she dries off and we have no problems until the next shower.

My daugher has the straight hair on top and really curly hair underneath. I found a product called WEN. I love it . It looks and feels like conditioner but it is a 2 in 1 product. My daughter gets in the shower, I get her all wet put the product in her hair, which is just past her shoulders. I clip the hair up, finish giving her a shower, usually last 5 minutes, and then I rinse her hair out. The product is great. I let her comb/brush her own hair after the shower and we have no problems.

My bff has the curliest hair I've ever seen. After she showers and washes her hair she puts regular conditioner in her hair and leaves it in. Also I dunno if this will help but my daughters hair gets knotted up easy and instead of having to wash it all the time I use some serum. Fruictis (not sure on spelling) has some good serum it says its for smooth and sleek hair, but it works on wet or dry hair and doesn't leave the hair looking or feeling nasty.

I use Infusium23 Leave in conditioner for my curly hair. Also, NEVER brush it when it's dry. Use a fat, wide tooth comb and never a bristle brush which just gets caught up in the curls. If you're going somewhere you can squirt small sections of her hair with the Infusium and comb it through, then allow to air dry. Also, curly hair should only be washed once or twice a week. If you use a light gel in her hair her curls should stay for days. Spritz lazy, day old curls with water, I add a few drops of Lavender Oil to my water bottle, to keep curls springy and smelling sweet. Good luck!!!

Hi their, my 4 1/2 year old has super curly hair and I have found that conditioning it only made it worse and really wirey (spelling?). The product that I have found that works the best for us is Johnsons kids anti tangle spray. It comes in a pink spray bottle. i spray it all over her hair and then brush it through, it is so much easier than any other product I have tried. I tried only brushing on days that we go out also, but this seemed to make things worse as the knots are much bigger. Hope this may help.

I took my 4 year old to a professional salon and made them recommend a product, I was tired of the fighting! Her hair is WAY curly. What the stylist recommended was an adult product but I use such a small amount that it doesn't burn her eyes when she washes it later. I rub on a pea sized dot when she gets out of the tub and it really defines her curls, gets rid of the frizz, and makes it manageable. Although the product was pricier than I liked it will last forever since I use such a tiny amount on her. Its called Premier Edit weightless serum. I bought it at visible changes. Best of luck to you!
