My daughter has long, waist length, thick hair. We have often engaged in hair battles over brushing her mane, and I have threatened to cut it short, which brings her to tears. She wants her hair long, and I do believe in giving her some autonomy in the way that she dresses and looks; however, I have also told her that she needs to take responsibility for her long locks. Recently, we discovered California Baby Calming Detangler Spray. This product has helped us conquer the snarls after baths. Just spray California Baby Calming Detangler Sprayon wet hair (my daughter does this herself), and the paddle brush/comb glides through her hair more easily. California Baby Calming Detangler Sprayis not a miracle product, but it does help tame the long locks and smells great.
