Knotty hair

DD's hair often ends up in knots in the morning, or more accurately one large rats nest. What kind of pillow case well help this? Right now its a low thread count cotton one.

Re: Knotty hair

I don't think it is so much the pillow case as it would be her moving a lot and her hair type. DD's is the same way, I usually put a little argin (sp?) oil in her hair after I wash it every night and it has helped a ton.

Re: Knotty hair

You can switch to a silk pillow case and it might help. But it will also help if you use more conditioner in her hair when you wash it.

Infusium 23 helps with knots here. No tip on pillow cases

Ignore typos...probably nursing, typing with one finger on my left hand while wrangling two toddlers. yeah, I'm that good.

Re: Knotty hair

I keep DD's hair in a loose braid at night. In the morning, I undo the braid, spray with diluted conditioner, and comb it.

Re: Knotty hair

A satin pillowcase should help. You can try applying coconut oil to her hair before washing (to dry hair). You have to wash well to get it out but it makes the hair less prone to getting tangled.

Definitely try a satin pillow case, they make a huge difference for me.

Re: Knotty hair

Braid her hair at night. It's what I do for my long hair; otherwise it's a mess!

Ditto to the satin pillowcase! The other thing that makes a huge difference is a Knot Genie hairbrush. It's amazing! They frequently have then on babysteals and babyhalfoff.
