  • I have insanely thick, tangley, curly hair and I use Pantene Pro-V Thick hair Frizzy2Smooth. Wal-MArt also has their own version of it that is just as good and only like $1.74 I think. but it is hard to find cause they are always out of it. I use the 2 in 1 shampoo, then fallow it up with conditioner. The 2 in 1 shampoo+conditioner isn't as drying on your hair but doesn't have enough conditioner. Also, when washing her hair, use hot water to wash and apply the conditioner, but rinse in cool water. The hot water will open up the cuticle to absorb the conditioners but the cool water seals the conditioner sealing in all the moisture without making it look greasy. Also, you can make your own detangler by mixing a spray bottle with a small squirt of conditioner. Thats exactly what you are buying from the store, and when making it yourself you will save alot of money. Good Luck!

  • I use Infusium 23 on my daughter's hair because it's also thick. The brush usually goes right through without problems and it's soft as can be. I have thick hair and that is what I use on my hair.
