I have just spent the past half an hour combing my hair properly for the first time in over a week.
My arms, scalp and fingers hurt.
Yes I am the mother who threatens to cut off her daughter's hair every morning because it (once again) has not been brushed properly and is full of knots.
The joy of quite long and extremely fine hair is that with a swish of a baby brush over the top it looks all flat and lovely, it can then be twisted back into a bun so that one at least maintains and air of respectability.
Princess Curly-Wurly will learn this trick as she ages. Until then I shall continue to scrape out the knots and tangles and twist/plait or put up as required each day.
For her at least ;-)
