Life is becoming easier. Everyday a little more so. The Knot Genie is a little unassuming product that is making a big difference.
I have a 23 month old with curly hair. She is my first girl and so I'm new to the world of doing girlie hair. I'm learning and thinking back to the days when my mom did my hair. I can remember the pulling and me hating that time of the morning when mom put barrettes or ponytails in my hair. It freaking hurt and it was a daily thing.
I felt kind of sad thinking about my little girl going through the same daily misery, and dreaded the thought of her learning to hate all those cute clips & bows that could be so fun. There had to be some way to get her to be ok with the process that so many of us grew up hating.
I first thought about detangling sprays. Simple enough right? Not really. I pay close attention to what I put in my children's little bodies, so I had to find a natural formula - free of chemicals. I did, but it wasn't the easiest thing to find and I paid for it. It works great, but seems to flatten her sweet curls. Good for really bad tangles - not good for everyday use.
Then I saw it - the Knot Genie. If this thing works, it would be such a huge help in getting Capri to be ok with having her hair done. And, chemical free, no packaging waste, and no having to replace it, as I would have to with a spray! Yay! I had to try it.
Guess what?! She brings it to me!!!
She brings it to me to brush her hair. I think that is proof enough! It doesn't hurt.
All you need are light strokes and work it as you would a regular brush. It just works through so much easier. Hooray!
As for her curls, it fluffs them and they loose their separation. I have found that after I brush with Knot Genie, a light mist of water and her curls bounce back.
Thank you Knot Genie - this little brush will potentially help a generation of girls head out the door happy on their way to school each morning :))
