My hair is naturally curly/wavy.
When I was little I would never brush my hair. I would get knots the size of a head. It was crazy, my Dad actually broke, snapped, and accidentally through brushes and combs trying to get them out. Yeah, it was painful..What work is if you start from bottom to top on a knot and maybe you can try some detangler. Ive never tried it but maybe it will work for you.. Also, you can always just brush your hair regularly to prevent them..And what she said, you can put smoothing cremes like conditioners to help them get out.
In addition to what was said, I also find it helpful to start combing from the bottom of the hair and slowly working my way up the knots. I have very long hair, and this is the only technique that works for me.
well what i do is brush it softly with my brush NEVER put lots of conditioner because it will make your hair appear greasy and uncared for which is not true so brush it from the bottom up & it won't hurt :)
I comb from the bottom of my hair and work upwards. Helps for knots. I also make sure to use condition a few times a week to keep my hair soft.
apply hair conditioner and before you rinse it off brush your hair under water, thats what i do, AMAZING
Lotslotslots of conditioner, wide toothed comb. WALA. :D.
Detangler in the hair section of the grocery store.
My daughter gets those. We call them a rat's nest.
