I know right?! Two posts in one week – what the heck?! 😉
This is not a particularly important post. No earth shattering news or anything. I’ve just got something that I’ve been meaning to share in case it helps someone else, so here goes:
When people meet Nicola for the first time, they inevitably say, “Look at her beautiful hair!” and yes, it’s true – her hair is just lovely. There is one time of the day when I sometimes find it a little less than lovely and that is when I have to brush it, and tie it up for school. Long curly hair knots up like nobody’s business, and when even when I brush the gentlest strokes with the latest in no tears brushes, she often gives me a yelp and accuses me of pulling her brain!
All of this is very much un-fun, as you can imagine. I guess it’s true what they say, it really is painful to be beautiful?
We’ve been using (with greater than average success) the Organics Detangle Spray. It smells of green apples – and we love it!
However, I’ve noticed that bees love it even more than we do, especially if her hair gets wet! We’re swimming a lot these days, this is a big problem. I also don’t actually know if she has a chance of being allergic to bees, I’m not – but the other half of her genetic make-up bag is a bit of a mystery to me – so rather safe than sorry.
I decided to try out a little something to see if it would do the trick. I’ve taken the (now empty) detangle spray bottle, added a good generous dollop of my own conditioner, and filled it up with water. A couple of good shakes to mix everything up and ta-dah! It works like a charm (some might say it actually works even better than the one we used before – I haven’t been accused of brain yanking in almost a week now!).
So if you’re having the same problem, feel free to give it a bash. There now, don’t say I never told you anything. 😉
