    Default Best detangler

    I need help, my long-haired friends!

    I've had long (waist length) hair for most of my life. For the majority of that time, Pantene was my shampoo and conditioner of choice. Nothing detangled my straight, baby fine hair better, and it left my hair looking like a silken waterfall.

    Fast forward to today...

    I'm 52. During the past few years, my hair has changed from stick straight to slightly wavy, though it is still baby fine. Pantene no longer detangles my hair. In fact, there are no products that reliably detangle my hair while it's wet. And when it's dry, it tangles immediately after detangling. As a result, I haven't worn it down in public in ages.

    My hair is now hip length. I get regular trims, and I don't see many splits.

    If I use a super-coney leave-in, such as CHI Silk after my hair is dry, it helps to "silkify" my hair, though it still doesn't look like a silken waterfall. But I would dearly like to find a fabulous detangler to use after shampooing in the shower.

    Vinegar rinses don't well for me, so that suggestion is out.

    I'm open to all others.

    Have you tried clarifying then going back to the pantene?

    I really like Suave Kids detangling spray. Seriously. I personally have trouble keeping my updos... up when I use anything coney, so I don't use it often. I do use it often on my daughter's hair-- her hair likes cones.

    No, little cherry, I haven't. That's a good idea. I'll try it.

    Thank you, clichepithet. I have used Johnson's detangler (same idea) and liked it. I have not tried Suave's version.

    I don't know if you have this product where you live, but when I used cones I loved the Natusan kiddie detangeling spray (no idea what it's called) and it worked wonders. When my hair was wet it was hell to detangle but it went easily when I used that spray.

    I love the Suave stuff, too. There are a whole bunch of flavors/scents in that line, and they all work well.

    Scarily enough, what has worked the best in my house (not may hair, but two little girlies, one who is a super curly girl) is the Equate/Walmart brand. It's cheap and works really well.

    Maybe something in this spray-on vein is going to work for you?!? I sure hope so. I hate the tangles!

    Detanglers never worked in my fine, spiderwebby hair. But I recently stumbled upon a conditioner that I swear by - it is the best conditioner in the world as far as I'm concerned and it detangles my hair like no other. Shiseido Tsubaki Shining Conditioner with Tsubaki Oil.

    tiNti, I did a quick search on the Internet and discovered that Natusan is the European branch of Johnson & Johnson. I see that they have a different product offering than they do here. We have a spray on detangler from Johnson's that works pretty well for me, though I'm really not crazy about spray ons. I actually have a partial bottle in the bathroom. Maybe I'll try that tomorrow.

    Someone on TOS suggested the Equate brand to me today. It looks very similar to Johnson's detangler, but it does have a few more ingredients. Those "few more" may make all the difference in the world.

    We don't have a Walmart here, but maybe I could order some online.

    In the meantime, I'll check out the Suave line. Thank you!

    Themyst, thank you for the recommendation. I just bookmarked that product. It looks really good.

    I was searching online for this and found the review you posted here. lol

    eta: Can you only buy that online?

    As far as I know, yes. I usually order it through amazon.com. It's a bit pricey, but so worth it for me since I have always had horrid tangle problems. Also, it has a pretty thick consistency so you don't have to use a whole lot.
