I have to special order most my Aubrey's stuff as my local whole foods carries island naturals but not honeysuckle rose, white camellia or the madarin jelly.

Found real Mayo to be the perfect product for dry finger detangling. Helped unravel my little cousins' matted hair roots and knots. I only do this as a pre-wash and on dry hair. I lightly coat my fingers in mayo, very light coating to were there is a thin oil film presence but no whiteness and no greasiness, and then I proceed to finger detangle. When I come across a nasty knot or mess of tangles or matted roots I take small amount of mayo, gently massage it into the hair and then gently massage out the knot or tangle. Then, I twist up that hair section. After detangling, I proceed with our wash method.

I basically found that I cannot detangle on wet hair with condish or with detangling sprays (as none of the sprays worked as well I needed them to work, tho eventually I could use them on dry hair). Detangling with condish made our hair way too curly and ends would tangle more. So, I just do the conditioner as part of the styling step when I want the curls to pop.

Since detanglers seem to be mostly cones, can you adjust your technique to avoid detangling?

I don't ever detangle DD's hair unless I'm co-washing it. I admit, it's braided nearly all the time, which makes life easier. My DD has a ton of hair, and it doesn't much like being handled. But, I did recently try the technique discussed in detail on the tightlycurly.com website and I was surprised by how well it worked on my DD's very shrinky 4A hair. In addition to using much heavier conditioners than I had tried, she suggests separating each curl out and pulling it between your fingers and thumb. This seals each curl, for want of a better description, and I was astonished by how this kept her hair basically detangled for a full week. The curls minded their own business and didn't go looking for trouble! My DD's curls are much tighter and shrinkier than the person who made the site, but the techniques worked just as well.

Of course, all hair is different, and while my DD's hair is very tightly curled and shrinky, it doesn't do stuff like mat from the roots. This might not work for everyone, but could be worth a try!
Just a suggestion, but why not make your own spray detangler by mixing a conditioner that you or your husband likes with water? Put more water than conditioner so that the conditioner doesn't harden up on her hair once it dries and you're good to go.
