I'm looking for advice on a detangling product for super straight, fine, long hair.
My hair is about two inches past my shoulders and every time I wash it, I have to spend ten minutes with a hairbrush (I use this
one) clawing huge tangles out of my hair. Literally all of my hair about halfway up my head from the ends is one huge tangle.
Right now, I'm using relatively cheap shampoo and conditioner from the drugstore, because I have a lot of hair and I go through a lot of shampoo and conditioner, so buying really expensive stuff would add up pretty quick. Washing my hair less is not an option, as I'm working out five days a week, and my hair gets gross and greasy really quick if I skip washing it for more than a day or two. Also, if I just get it wet and don't use any conditioner, the tangles are infinitely worse.
I'm looking for advice. All the previous questions I've found are about curly hair, and the solutions they have offered that are totally off the table include cutting it short and installing anything to change the water quality in my shower (I already have really tricky plumbing issues in the shower).
So, looking for advice. Is there a shampoo/conditioner combo that's worth the money that would help with the problem without sending me to the poorhouse? I've tried some of the detangler spray products, but I end up going through the bottles really quick because my tangles are so intractable, and they don't really help very much. Are those detangler brushes any good? Any other ideas?
