  • Without cutting I would wash and condition her hair and while she has the conditioner in her hair try to comb it out or brush then rinse and towel dry let it air dry slowly then comb/brush her hair again and make a braid you have to keep it under control especially if she has thick tangles. I know you said no cutting but sometimes you have to cut some to get it under control and it won't look cut it just won't be so out of control GL

  • how old is she? i have the thick hair issue too. My mom is a hair dresser so she just thins my hair out with a razor blade. The hair will stay the same length but will just be a lot thinner. It feels amazing and I can defiantly tell when I need my hair cut when it starts getting too thick again.

  • I've had mine thinned with the thinning shears at the same time I had it cut. Also, we use suave detangler spray on mine and Kiwi's hair. It's amazing, and make the tangles seem to just disappear.

  • Oh my gosh! thinning shears are another way of doing it. It's life changing I swear. She should be old enough by now to do my mom started thinning my hair around 8 but that's only cause before that I had to pretty much chop my hair off cause of head lice. I had super long hair. I would see if you could find a GOOD hair salon not some crappy 6 dollar hair cut place. Look up some salons near you and read the customer reviews online :]
