25 Awesome Products for Detangling Kids Hair

You’ve got kids, and they’ve got hair. This can be problematic, I know. Kids and babies tend to have fine hair, and fine hair tangles really easily. Add curls to the mix, and you may have even more of a problem. Detangling kid’s hair after a shower or brushing through the bedhead in the morning can be a real battle complete with crying, screaming, and fighting. Fortunately there are products that can help. I prefer lines specifically designed for children because they are formulated to be gentle, and many contain natural ingredients. Be sure to cleanse with a moisturizing shampoo and click through the slideshow for 25 great sprays, conditioners, and tools that make detangling a whole lot easier.
