I have a goddaughter (above) who ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY hates getting her hair combed.
If it was up to Thalia, she'd be fro'd out everyday! As soon as she sees the spray bottle, hair combs, and barret box, she knows it's about to go down. She cries like someone is killing her and remains angry for about an hour afterward. Actually, the picture above is after we completed a de-tangling session. Clearly, she was not happy with auntie. Problem is, Thalia is 1.5 years old, and her hair is growing like a tree. Her silky coils tangle easily and shed like crazy.
I have my own techniques, but I was happy to see a post on my fave site, www.KisforKinky.com talking about washing and combing little girl's natural hair. It's always good to get another point of view on the process.
