Smooth Moves: Top Tips to Detangle Kids' Hair In Aussie Climates

Detangling kids' hair is something none of us look forward to, especially when you add it to the never-ending list of parenting tasks. Plus, if your kiddo has had allergic reactions to conventional products, finding the right products suited for hot and humid climates can be stressful.

To provide our fellow Aussie parents with natural, allergy-friendly support, we’ve compiled some general guidelines and tips for detangling kids' hair with ease.

Best Methods for Untangling Knotty Kids' Hair (Without the Tears!)

When we think of knotty hair, we don’t typically consider the products we use as the primary suspect.

Yet, one of the best approaches to preventing tangled kids' hair is to prioritise natural hair care products. While conventional products are filled with chemicals and alcohol that strip the hair of its natural moisture, natural products provide gentle and nourishing ingredients that help hair stay smooth, shiny, and tangle-free.

How Healthy Natural Products Help to Deal with Hair Tangles

Natural products help nourish and hydrate the hair while minimizing the risk of exposing your little ones to harmful chemicals.

Look for gentle formulas free from sulfates, parabens, and artificial fragrances. Instead, opt for products with natural ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, and aloe vera, which are all fantastic for keeping your kids' hair soft, smooth, and tangle-free.

A bonus of switching to natural products? Much lower risk of allergic reaction!

Allergy-friendly Detangling Products for Kids

At eekoloks, we've gone through the painful process of researching allergen-free solutions to tangled kids' hair so that you don't have to!

Our Deter'n'Detangle Leave-In Conditioner contains natural hair care ingredients such as aloe vera, tea tree, and evening primrose oil, making it an excellent option for parents looking for safe and effective kids’ hair care.

As fellow parents, we understand the importance of using products that won't put your little ones at risk, which is why we've worked hard to create a line of natural kids' hair care products free from common allergens such as peanuts, gluten, and dairy.

Getting the Right Tools: Essential Hair Brushes and Combs for Kids' Tangled Hair

  • Invest in a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush for kids' hair care. These are designed to gently separate the strands without causing pain
  • For tight curls and tangle-prone locks, look for brushes with flexible bristles that glide through the hair smoothly.
  • A wide-tooth comb is great for tackling larger knots, while a detangling brush with soft bristles can work wonders on finer tangles.

Finally, to make the most of your trusty detangling kit, we’ve got to put it to good use—putting the little pens to bed with styled and tidy manes!

Style Before Bedtime

The last thing we want to see in the morning is a messy head of hair that needs detangling before school.

To avoid morning knots, have your child sleep with their hair in a tight braid or ponytail. This stabilizes the hair and prevents it from getting tangled as they move in their sleep. If your little one has tight curls or frizzy hair, this trick is a lifesaver!

For extra hold, try braiding tightly. Plus, many stylists swear by this trick to create beautiful waves the next day.
