Consequently, I used to spend at least 15 minutes every morning dealing with hair. Generally this involved chasing a screaming Claire around the house, threatening to shave her head if she didn't just suck it up and let me comb her hair, already. Mary Grace behaved better, but it still broke my heart to hear her say, "Ouch Mommy, it hurts!" as tears rolled down her sweet cheeks. I'd tell her that I remember my mom combing the tangles out of my hair, too, and I know how much it hurts, but there's nothing I can do.
Then I heard about a product that has changed our lives. I loved it so much that I contacted the company and asked them if I could share it with you! Behold:
The top part lifts out, and there are eensy weensy little plastic tines on the other side. Somehow, probably with magic, it takes out the tangles without hurting the kid. Even Claire's tender head!
The kids have even asked to comb their own hair with the Magic Flowerpot, and because of the magic they can actually do a pretty decent job of it - freeing me up to do other things in the morning. I just give it a once-over when they're done, and we go. No more 15 minute hair battles in our house!
I'm still in the post-partum shed - I don't know how I actually have any hair left to lose at this point, because it has been six months, but I'm losing a TON of hair every day. It was all over the bathroom before, because the brush I used to use didn't grab it as well. The tines on the Tangle Teezer actually grab the hair better, resulting in less mess (and fewer loose hairs all over the house).
You can buy the regular Tangle Teezer at Sally Beauty Supply (which is what I did) or you can order one online. I'm excited to be able to give you an opportunity to win one, too! All you have to do is go to the Magic Flowerpot by Tangle Teezer's Facebook page and click "LIKE," then post a comment on the wall saying that you came from http://prettybabies.blogspot.
