Please don't critize me for saying this. I just need advise. Well my 8yo dd's hair is super super thick. Mexican /Indian mixture We have always had problem with her head being extra sesitive. Her hair when she was younger was past her butt. When she became 6 1/2 she no longer wanted anyone to brush her hair. So we let her manage her own hair and refuses to brush it herself and refuses to let anyone else brush it. Well I cut it short and sent 16 1/2 inches to locks for love. Now she is 8 and her hair is back to the middle of her back. She tells us she brushes it pulls it up in a pony tail and we leave for school. Well I just went to take it down and cut it shorter and her hair is so matted to her scalp in the center of her brashed hair idk what to do. I put massive conditioner and olive oil in her hair to try and brush through she threw such a tantrum the neighbors called the cops. Which is why I usually avoid getting her upset because every time she is upset the neighbors call the cops. What do I do to get her hair brushed out? Btw I can't afford to go to a salon and have them do it. My bffl says the way my dd acts that a salon would just refuse her anyways.

*oh the whole response on the bob cut. That is what my plan was I just need to get the mats out before it can be cut. If I don't get them out she will have uneven hair cut.
*She can only use Johnson and Johnson if I use other shampoos she breaks out in little bumps and itches all night. I use mane & tail on my hair though.
*for the Mommy about threatened to shave her hair I have done that. She just says no you won't which she is right.
This is the cut she has agreed to get I offered a pixie cut she says this one she likes link on pg.4


*mayo /egg (lol salad dressing) is now set into her hair. How long do I leave it? Or am I supposed to be brushing it while in her hair?
*It is now half cut and brushed finally 4hrs later. The bendryl knocked her out. So when she wakes up in the morning I will finish the cut. Wow thank you to the supportive mommies who did not belittle or put down me or my daughter.

After you wash it comb it out with a wide tooth comb. Its very important to start from the bottom up! Its less painfull! After combing it, braid it and leave  in the braid until her hair dries! I swear this helps a TON! Do this every time she washes it! And wash her hair at least every other day.  She can keep her long hair.

I have been cutting hair for about 20 years. My kids have always had their hair cut by me. My oldest is 17. Even when I was in high school I cut my friend's hair. I don't think cutting it would be a problem. I was saying taking her to the salon to get her hair brushed is a problem. She also screams before the brush touches her head.

Quoting TexanMomOf6:

My oldest daughter had Shirley Temple curls naturally. She acted like I was killing her. I didn't even have to touch her with the brush and she'd be screaming. Her hair got cut short!


I looked at the cut, it's cute but with super thick hair, i don't know if that one would work. I would recommend finding several pictures of short cuts to show to the beautician to get her opinion on what would work. I live in a very small town and we have 5 beauty shops that charge from 12-30$ for a haircut. It's worth having a professional do it, at least the first time. It would be tricky for an inexperienced person to cut hair correctly. But if you watch how it's done you may be able to do it the next time.

She has Destructive Behavior Disorder, high anxiety, seperation anxiety, mild depression, & adhd.

Quoting chalisa0:

LOL.  You're gonna be sorry you put mayonaise in her hair.  It's a bitch to get out.  Just try to comb out the tangles, bit by bit.  Do not allow her to scream though.  If she is going to throw a tantrum at age 8, you really should cut off her hair.  That's ridiculous behavior for an 8 yo.  Get control now, or you're in for a world of hurt when she gets to the tween years.

Try Original Sprout shampoo and products on her. Its one of the few things that tames my daughter's hair and doesn't make her break out

Oh, well in that case, I bet you can do a fine job on her hair.  Good luck with the detangling!
