Any tips on how to deal with this??? Preferably a before bed prevention solution?

Right now she is allowing me to use a spray bottle and a comb in the morning. She doesn't always like it tied up though.

That's so cute...

I used the spray conditioners after bath, and then made sure it was dry when they went to bed.

And then it was spray bottle and wide-toothed comb in the morning.

It is always worse after a bath night. And she goes to bed with wet hair.

*mental note: buy wide-toothed comb

Look at those beautiful golden curls!

No advice (I always had tangles when I was little and had short hair as a result).

Carrie,

What do you wash her hair with? If you use baby shampoo, I would recommend switching to a regular shampoo and conditioner. I love the Sleek products by Matrix for Morgan's hair. After I shampoo and condition, I put in a spray leave in conditioner and comb. Most of the time I will braid her hair or put it in a pony tail to make it easier in the morning (but I'm not sure Kyla's is long enough)

In the morning I would again use a spray in conditioner for detangling. Definitely use a wide tooth comb or pick.

I feel your pain! And it doesn't get any better, I have to fight Morgan on this issue nearly every day.

I've heard that a silk pillow case really helps. Less friction on the hair, I guess.

I cannot see the picture, since I installed a program on my computer to block porn and it is telling me that flickr.com is a pornographic site....lol.

I can tell you that what works for L is a grown up 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner (right now we are using Pantene) and I do find her curly/frizzy hair is worse if she goes to bed with wet hair. When she was little I used to wash it, comb it with spray detangler and a wide toothed comb, let it dry, comb it again and hope for the best...she hated sleeping with braids/ponies.

Sorry, no advice. I am a bad, bad mom who rarely brushes her toddler's hair. Anything to avoid the tears and tantrums that hairbrushing induces. I'm just glad that Suzy's hair is straight and rarely tangles.

I hear you. My 5 year old still gets her hair brushed with a little baby brush because I cannot stand the screams, tears and meltdowns hairbrushing causes. I cut 12 inches off her hair because it was a nightmare. I keep telling myself she will outgrow it. Either that or shave her head....lol.

My daughter has that problem. Or had.
We now use regular shampoo and conditioner on her hair. The conditioner always helps smooth it out and we dry it out as much as possible before putting her to bed. Also combing it with a wide tooth comb starting from tip and working your way up to the root makes it a little easier to handle if the conditioner doesn't work.
