My daughter has very thick and curly hair that is impossible to manage without a detangling spray. The ones for children are nice and I have friends who use it for their kids and say it works great.
I have found a great grown up's detangling spray that's sensitive enough to use on my daughter but oh so expensive. Considering that she takes a bath practically every day, I can't afford to keep buying it!
Thankfully, I heard a great idea- to make my own detangling spray. I mix hair conditioner with water, shake it up and put it in a spray bottle. It works just as well as the high priced detangling spray that I love. It's so easy to brush my daughter's hair this way and no more crying from the tangles and the pain of trying to undo them.
I totally recommend this for moms who need a detangling spray on a budget. Just make sure to put more water than the conditioner. I think mine is a 4:1 water ratio. You can put even more water if you want to make it lighter.
