    Default Hair care

    I need some hair care advice. My daughter is 9 and her hair is getting pretty long and she refuses to get it cut (I'm going to have to force the issue for a trim soon). It isn't thick, but she has *a lot* of it, and has a hard time getting the brush through it to the bottom layer and sometimes it is so tangled and matted underneath. It's on the oily side like mine and now that school is starting again I'm going to have to force her to shower more often, but that still won't be as often as she should. Can anyone recommend a shampoo and/or conditioner or other products? We already have a brush that works really well.

    We use a leave in conditioner and the wet brush. But my daughter's hair is curly so any brushing requires wetting it completely.

    Magrat: DD and I have similar hair. We use 2 Chic leave in conditioner. It surprisingly does not leave the hair oily. When DDs hair was past her shoulders, she only needed a pea sized amount massaged in.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Which one is it? It looks like they have a few kinds.

    We use this one:



    With my hair right past my shoulders two to three pumps does the job. Any more and it will look oily.

    I love pantene products. DD has very similar hair and not very good at brushing. We use pantene shampoo for oily hair and pantene conditioner for dry hair. Then some moroccan oil by suave from about midway down. And then the wet brush. This has made a huge difference. I also make a point to get rid of all of the matted parts - I'll even cut them out. If find once there's a small rats nest, everything is down hill from there. DD has gotten much better though about brushing.
