My daughter has gorgeous, long, thick hair that curls at the ends, and forms sweet little tendrils around her face ... once in a blue moon. The other 99 percent of the time, it's a tangled, twisted mess or back in a ponytail or braid to avoid said tangled, twisted mess.
Our battle with the hairbrush is not fun, and we've tried a host of detanglers.
