Honestly if he doesn't care about products like that he could just use cheap conditioners like suave or Vo5. From my experience they don't leave lingering smells and they make combing out your hair much simpler. And I totally agree with the poster above me, I always let my hair air dry in twists or a bun before wearing it out, otherwise it tangles over itself while drying. I never "wash n go", so I never have bad knots/tangles. That's probably what's happening to him. Good luck
