Spring is FINALLY here, which means it’s time for parents to open up those windows, let some fresh air in, and remind your neighbors why they like the winter so much. Between yelling at your kids, your kids yelling at each other, and you yelling at your kids for yelling at each other, it’s hard to hide your true colors from the neighborhood during the warmer months. But it gets so much worse when it comes time to brush your daughter’s hair.
My daughter’s hair is beautiful. It’s a mixture of waves and curls, which means it also gets tangled and knotted fairly easily. As I’m used to managing my own hair, which is the complete opposite, I had no idea how to deal with the tangled mess atop my daughter’s head. As her hair grew and became more difficult for me to handle, I headed to the computer and the trusty internet. I actually found some very helpful tips, most of which I’m sure the majority of women my age already knew, and had known for years.
The most helpful tip I found was to use a wide-toothed comb. I found this one from Conair at the local drug store and was immediately impressed. Point for the internet! The comb definitely helped a lot, but the detangler spray I was using just didn’t seem to be cutting it. I wanted to try something different, but since they all claim to be “amazing,” including the one I was currently using, so I didn’t know who to believe.
Then, one day last summer at the beach, a friend of mine was spraying a product on her daughter’s long, flowing hair. I asked her what it was and how well it worked. It turns out it was a spray from a brand called Carol’s Daughter. She told me it was “magical,” and I had no reason to doubt her, as I watched her comb through her daughter’s hair with nary a whimper.
I was sold. The next day, I ran out to the store (I can’t remember which one, but I know it’s available at Walmart and Target) and bought a bottle. She was right – “magical” was the perfect way to describe this product. I have only used the Sacred Tiare version they have available, and I love it, but they have several other leave-in conditioners, as well as many other hair products.
If you go to the company’s website, carolsdaughter.com, you can see their full line of products, and read about how the company started (in the founder’s kitchen in Brooklyn!). If you don’t have a Target or Walmart close to you, this detangler is available on Amazon with Prime shipping, which is super convenient.
So if your daughter sounds like she’s being attacked when you brush her hair and you don’t know what else to do to keep her quiet, definitely give Carol’s Daughter a shot. Your neighbors will surely be grateful.
