Bangs, fringe, breakage — whatever you call it, it'll fit in some butterfly clips.
Let me tell you about the time my mother brought me to a crappy salon in our neighborhood when I was 11. It was tragic. Devastating. The lady at the salon found a massive knot of tangles at the nape of my neck and told my mother there was nothing she could do but to chop off my hair.
ALL OF IT.
She practically put a bowl on my head as a stencil and cut around it. It was so short that a cleaning lady yelled at me when I went to the ladies' bathroom because she mistook me for a guy.
Years and unmistakably feminine curves later, I still battle tangles on an almost daily basis. When I can, I just run my fingers through my locks to get rid of them, but when the knots are stubborn and I have more than three seconds on my hands, I don't use a brush. I use something called the Tangle Teezer:
By the way, that's Married to Medicine on the TV in the background. The US has the BEST reality shows. Bad Girls Atlanta. Housewives of Atlanta. Where is this Atlanta place?! I want to go there!
Anyway, how do you deal with your knots? Think you'll try the Tangle Teezer?
