don't know if this will help at all, but Jeepycurls had posted that using an ACV/water rinse between the shampoo and the conditioner,and leaving it in before conditioning, would help with the detangling. I tried it and it worked really well. Cut my detangling time in half to about 5 mins (I have super tangled hair for some reason). My hair is also very long. The other thing is, I tried HE Honey I'm Strong condish, and it worked pretty well too, especially with the ACV rinse before hand. Hth your niece has lovely hair! And so nice of you to help her take care of it...
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
