Question Detangler

I have a 3 year old and a 19 month old. I am currently using Equate (cost $2) detangler in their curly hair. It works great and it makes combing their hair sooo much easier. The only problem is that it seems like it is drying their hair out. Does anyone know of a product that doesn't do this? I don't want to spend a lot on products for their hair because I will use it everyday and it gets expensive. Thanks everyone for your help!

Default Make your own detangler!

My 4 y/o daughter's curls were dropping out and getting dry too. I noticed that her spray in detangler AND her regular condish both had cones in them. I was going to try a modified CG routine on her but I needed more info regarding detanglers. I read in Lorraine's book that you can make a detangler for kids by mixing water and condish 50/50. I took a spray bottle and diluted my cowash condish (suave naturals aloe and waterlily) and made my own detangler. What a difference! After her final sulfate wash and rinse out condish her curls are bouncy again!

So you CAN make your own! I used my suave b/c its already lightweight.

This is exactly what I have done! I havent managed to find a -cone free detangler or leave in in the UK ( well not a cheap one LOL) so I mixed a little bit of our light co-wash condish with water in a spray bottle and it works brilliantly! I do try to detangle as little as possible though , and save the most detangling for in the bath with LOTS of condish !!

Default How about Trader Joe's

If you live near a Trader Joe's, how about a diluted amount of the Nourish and Spa conditioner. It's $3 bucks a bottle, or something like that.

I don't live near a Trader Joe's, but I picked up a few bottles for myself when I was in D.C. recently. So, if you don't live near one, maybe a friend does. Just a thought.

Without a doubt Carol's Daughter Tui Leave-in conditioner. I just discovered for my daughter's 4a curly hair and it is not heavy at all - but detanglers incredibly. I've tried probably all the other products and now that I've discovered this - I'm now ecstatic!
