I've strained ligaments in my wrist trying to brush my hair. Tend to cut it before it gets too long. But found a product that helps:

children's detangler. I only use a little bit, spray it on my hairbrush, then run the hairbrush through my hair. Its basically orange scented aloe.

http://www.amazon.com/Kiss-My-Face-Orange-Detangler/dp/B001E8GF6K

it lasts forever, so not as expensive as it seems. And don't use too much and it won't wear your hair down.

Its good for winter static too.

Try the tangle teaser too. It helps minimize pulling.

How about not being able to sit long enough to get a decent haircut. So, it gets long (more difficult to comb) with extra pain and stress on your neck and back. but sitting hurts and then you cannot toss your hair out of your eyes because neck movement is curtailed.

I usually will do a coconut oil soak and that keeps it soft and less tangled.

I'm going to get a few inches cut off mine soon because it's harder and harder to take care of. Mine is very thick and has to stay tied back for work, so strands break all the time even with gentle stretchies. Shoulder length would be tolerable. Now to get hubby on board with the cut. He's going to flip out. Poor guy thinks all women should have long hair. NOT! He can have long hair if he wants. I'm tired of it.

that's my life too…at the end of each summer when I want to go get my hair cut, I usually have to wait til dec or jan to do so. This year, I'll try going again in june, before the worst flares hit. I've also had them cut it once we me standing part of the time. But I short and he is tall so that worked.

I keep my hair back with either a pony tail holder or barrettes, then don't have the issue you are talking about.

I keep mine very short and curly. My shoulders hurt too much to use hair driers, curling irons or to do much in the way of styling.I go in to my stylist every 3-4monthes and get a wash and wear perm and haircut.All I do is pick out my hair when it is wet and let it dry in place. I do have to take some pain meds before my perm. My stylist is a good friend, so she will let me get up and walk around if I need a break. At my age, comfort is more important then vanity.

I so agree yes


Though I have shoulder length or slightly longer hair, I don't do anything to it but brush it after washing it….very much wash and wear…..I let it dry naturally, its naturally curly / wavy so never a curling iron, just wash it, brush it, tie it back, let it dry.

Which means I can't wash it and go out in zero degree temps, so need to wash it the night before or on warmer days….even with a hat on, don't want to go out with a wet head.
