Curls are now dreads!
Well, I'm not a parent but a concerned older sister.
My little bother (12) hasn't let anyone touch his hair for years after a bad experience with a hair dresser. He had the most beautiful shiny curls but they've been left to tangle and matt due to his determined refusal to allow anyone to touch them. Right now, he has a mixture of matted curly dreadlocks (
) and 3b curls.
Just 2 hours ago, he has agreed to let me detangle it! Does anyone have any tips? I know I should use lots and lots of conditioner and I have a Tangle Teezer so this shouldn't be too difficult... but his hair is really bad right now, he rinses it with water most mornings but never uses shampoo or conditioner.
I'm not sure how to go about detangling this because we have the same hair (or, we would have the same hair), but I've never let it get anywhere near this stage so I'm unsure where to start!
Gah! I want to unleash all the beautiful curls on his head! They'll probably been down to his shoulders if I ever manage this.
Any tips or ideas?
