When I was pregnant my husband and I thought long and hard about what our little creation would look like. We knew she would have dark straight hair, olive skin, and maybe hazel eyes. We were pretty confident in our combination so you can imagine the shock when our little blonde curly haired monster arrived! Never in a million years did we think we’d make a child with curly hair. She doesn’t just have curls. She has the tightest little springs on her head. We see lots of kids with “baby curls” but not many with curls as tight as Audrey’s.

Since both Tom and I have straight dark hair it has taken a long time to figure out how to deal with Audrey’s hair. We didn’t know how to tame it or what to brush it with. I would buy all kinds of products hoping to find something that worked for her. If I met someone with curly hair I would always ask them what types of products they used. After nearly 3 years of trial and error I think we may have mastered the curls. Some days are harder than others of course, but the fact that she doesn’t look like a ‘lost child’ anymore is a good sign.

For Audrey’s tight curls I like to use the Goody Ouchless Girls Oval Brush. To find a brush that will work best for you’re job click here. These types of brushes are wonderful for brushing out tough tangles without any tears. They are really effective and make brushing sessions go so much smoother. Even Tom can brush her hair with the right brush! There is of course a method to the brushing that we are going to share.

Use a good brush, a spray bottle of water, and a detangling spray with silicone. Start by spraying down the hair with water. Make sure its really wet. We usually place a towel over her shoulders to keep her clothes from getting wet. Don’t start brushing at the scalp! Use your fingers to grab a small section and hold it really tightly. Don’t pull it, just keep a firm grip. This will make it less painful because you won’t be tugging directly at her scalp. Brush out slowly at the roots and continue brushing that area until it’s tangle free. Start moving upwards slowly. It’s a long process because I like to go slow. Audrey has a very tender scalp like me so I’m careful to avoid tugging at it. I like to get close to as tangle free as possible, but if she’s having a hard time I will cut the brushing session short. She only has to feel one good tug before she loses it! After that she’ll cry even if I’m not brushing it. Try to brush curly hair a little every day. You don’t have to brush everything out, just keep in manageable. After you brush it, use your hands to tousle the hair just a bit to help the curls separate a bit more.

I have long straight hair. It’s really fine and tangles easily. My favorite brush is the Goody Straight Talk Boar Styler Brush. It adds shine and gently deals with my tangles. Since boar bristles help straighten and smooth I like to use this after styling my hair as well as before. To achieve this type of wavy look, start by curling your hair with a wand. I used a 1.5 inch barrel because I wanted a loose wave. After you’re finished, lightly brush your hair with the Goody Straight Talk Boar Styler Brush. That’s it! These waves last for days and never go out of style.

The third brush I bought is the Goody Detangle It Oval Cushion Brush. When I have lots of tangles this gets them out. The bristles are firm and really good with all types of hair. I like how quickly and easily it gets my tangles out.

I love the smooth seamless look you are left with whenever you use a brush with boar bristles. Goody has a huge selection of brushes that you can find at Walmart. I had so many options to choose from. There are brushes for all types of hair and all types of styles. Brushing our daughter’s curls used to be a pain. I dreaded brushing her hair because I knew it would be painful for her. I avoided brushing her hair, and that made tangles worse. Now with these brushes we are able to brush her hair everyday with hardly any pain. Priceless!
