…for letting my 6 yr. old play with my hair.
Yes, as I type this, a comb is still wrapped tight in my hair. I can’t get it out. Any suggestions?
Jada thinks it’s funny.
Thanks for not laughing at me too much!! 🙂
I finally got the dumb comb out. When my husband came home I showed him what happened. Being the sweetie that he is, he offered to help. He sat down behind me, got a closer look at the mess and said, “Wow”, realizing how truly tangled it was. He tried for about 30 seconds, then said, “Yeah, you’re gonna have to cut that out.”
No!! I didn’t want to cut it! My mother in law (who read my post) called and kindly offered to come over and help me get it out. I thanked her and told her if worse came to worse I’d go to her house for help.
I worked on and off for an hour and a half trying to undo the mess. Not having much progress I began contemplating the scissors. Fortunately, before I began hacking away, it occurred to me that I should break the comb. I began bending it back and forth in the middle of the knot until the comb snapped in half. Then I easily slid the hair over the broken ends of the comb. FREEDOM!
Next I got to pick out the dredlock that was left in my hair. It wasn’t too bad though, once I sprayed some detangler on it.
So anyways, FYI, if your hair ever gets wrapped around a comb and you can’t get it out… break the comb.
Thanks for all of your suggestions 🙂
