Okay my daughter HATES getting her hair brushed. So I was wondering what some of you other mom do to distract your kids in order to brush their hair or is there some trick I haven't found yet. I have one of those smart phones so i downloaded an app thats called toddler lock it lock my phone but it lets her draw on it or when she pushes a button it pops up different shapes and makes some noise too when you touch it. Well that has been working pretty good but she seems to get tired of it. I don't want to force her to let me brush her hair either so somedays when she puts up a big enough fight it doesn't get brushed and she runs around her with "wild woman hair" is what I call it...lol



So my question is what do you do to entertain your child long enough to comb/brush their hair?

while brushing her hair do you hold the hair up by the roots? With a lot of knots it can hurt quite a bit and maybe she's getting hurt while you are brushing her hair?

I used to let them stand and watch the cars out the window and I would quickly brush it and put it up. However, I have been doing it since they were itty bitty and they don't hassle me anymore. They learned pretty fast that no matter what it was getting done so they could sit and it would be done in a few minutes or they could fight me and I will hold them down and get it done anyways.

I have probably one of the few kids in the world who doesn't care for much cartoons...lol. I have figured out another way to get it done quicker but she still doesn't have the patients to sit there for the whole 5 mins I'm doin it. Even that she doesn't care for so I was just curious to see what other moms do.

Yes, I always grab the roots so I don't pull on her head. It's not that she cries she just doesn't want to sit still so I can do it.
