Getting Rid of Knots in Curly Hair

Brush closeup image

Curly hair undoubtedly mean having stubborn knots.  Brushing hair after a bath for any little one with long hair can be unpleasant, but if the hair is long and curly it can be painful.  We have bought many detanglers and conditioners that work well but you still need to brush it out.  
I just found a solution to the brushing problem: Knot Genie Detangler Brush.  It intrigued me and I couldn't wait to try it

Why it works: "The magic trick behind the Knot Genie™ is one we are happy to reveal. It all has to do with the different lengths of teeth on the brush. When brushing, they bend just right, to gently untangle the hair. And because of this lack of stress, the hair's cuticle stays unharmed... revealing the smoothest, shiniest hair you've ever seen."

My Thoughts:
The brush is a completely different shape than a regular brush.  When my daughter saw it she immediately pointed out that some bristles were shorter than others and that they were all a lot softer than our regular brush.  I was very surprised when I brushed her wet curls that it didn't pull at all.  I had to go over her hair quite a few times to smooth her hair out, but the brush didn't grab the hair like a regular brush and did manage to get all of the knots out. So, it's worth every penny in my book!
The website gives you tips on how to take care of curly, wavy and straight hair


Here are a few tips to make your curly hair the kind people rave about:
- Never brush curly hair when it is dry! Brushing dry curly hair disrupts the curl pattern, making it large and frizzy. Use the Knot Genie to brush curly hair only when it is wet.
- If you love that tight "springy" look, brush your hair in the shower or bath with the Knot Genie and then simply squeeze in styling product afterwards, being careful not to re-stretch the curls.
- At night, pull your hair into a loose pony tail. Pulling the curls up or back helps contain the curls so you are not tossing them around all night.
- Consider long hair. While many people think curly, hard-to-manage hair should be cut short, often that leads to a "mushroom" look. Extra weight pulls curls down and makes them gorgeous, especially when cut with long layers.
