My daughter will be 1 on Monday, and frankly my children were blessed with hair from the get go. All of my kids were born with full heads of hair, and my girl's hair is already down to the middle of her back if her slight curls are straight, like when wet. Well anyways, she throws an utter fit when I go to brush her hair and put it up so it won't get "stuff" and food in it as easily. Well my husband doesn't like to hear her crying or to see me basically become a python to hold her so I can at least brush it. He wants me to just leave her be since she doesn't like it, but I can't. I feel like a horrible mother when I see her hair is a tangled icky mess. My husband says we just wash it and suddenly "tada!" it looks great, but that is only for about 30 seconds after her bath. Any ideas on how I can make this easier? My husband doesn't understand, but with her hair as long as it is I can't let it just get into a tangled mess that will also hurt when I have to wash it and pray I don't yank on tangles. And frankly I don't want to cut it, it just wouldn't be worth it in the end for me because she would still not let me brush it with it being short.
