The other tool you need in your life is this detangling brush. I picked this brush up from our beauty closet at work and then promised myself I wouldn't add it to the pile of products that I collect but don't use.
One night when I was washing my daughter's hair I decided to whip it out in hopes that it would make what is normally a very stressful process somewhat easier. This brush is truly a life saver. She didn't whine or cry and it detangled her hair so quickly. I was in shock.
