HELP! 4 yr old DD turning into Bob Marley

(65 Posts)

DD went to bed with wet hair and woke up with the most horrendous tangle in her hair yesterday - tried to get it out with tangle tamer but couldnt even budge it it was so matted and she was screaming and had to get to work so tied it back - had another go tonight but still couldnt do much and didnt get much chance so she has gone to bed with it AGAIN (v bad mummy alert)

It has turned into almost a dreadlock

What the hell do I do with it?

I have tried semen etc

Does anyone have any good ideas as she wont let me within 400 yards of her with a brush without screaming now - any handy tips?

Hi Becca

I would suggest lots and lots of conditioner (told it works far better than semen!!) and a large detangler comb. The longer you leave it the worse it will get.

Oh Becca, you have deepened my laughter lines irrevocably, damn you!

If Body Shop leave in conditioner doesn't do the trick, I think it's scissors.....

How funny is this?

I have bought some hot oil today and going to attempt slathering that on and combing out a section at a time, bought her a giant kinder egg as a reward if she sits nicely...

If all else fails might try...................errrr NO!

go to an African hairdressers/shop - maybe they might know how to detangle.

PORK indeed!

Thanks Becca. I have just sprayed water out of my nose all over my desk. Hilarious typo - best ever!

Bob Marley has left the building!!! Managed to get them out with lots of patient combing and detangler spray
