Before & After Detangle Pictures With Video Clips

In Bed for over a year……I can’t get a job because of my hair…..
Hi, I am lost and don't know what to do. It's a long story but I was in bed for over a year with severe depression and my hair is matted, tangled, knotted....I have tried everything.
I got through my depression, but my hair is bringing me back. It is so bad at this point that I cannot go outside without a hat. I am so embarrassed i sit in the house all day and i can't get a job because of my hair so my husband is paying for everything which makes me more depressed and we are struggling.
I have been literally trying to get the knots out of my hair for months. Water made it worse so now i am afraid to wash it. i ordered the takedown removed cream which helped, but not enough. their anything you can do to help me? I am already considering cancelling the beach trip with my whole family in March, when summer comes i won't be able to wear a hat everyday. My ten year reunion is this year.
Sometimes i come close to shaving it, or worse. i cry a lot i am so frustrated. Please help if you can. Advice or anything....
Thank you so much.

Is the Barber Shop My Only Answer……
I just removed a weave from my hair that I have enjoyed for five months,  There was a tremendous amount of new hair growth.  After removing the weave, there was some dryness and one patch of matted hair - about the size of a quarter.  I saturated my hair with a product called Cactus oil Serum for dry damaged hair and left it in overnight.  Thinking that it was ok, I jumped in the shower and proceeded to shampoo my hair - which wasn't a problem until I put conditioned on!  What a huge mistake that was!  I actually felt my hair tightening up and it became one HUGE MATTED MESS!  Is there any hope or is the barber shop my only answer!?  

Waiting for your reply,

Hot Water And Conditioner……
I had tangled hair and used hot water and conditioner to try and untangle my hair, which matted it into big clumps. The clumps are matted pretty tight and seems impossible to untangle. I really don\'t want to loose my hair, so I am looking for an tangled tech closest to where I live. I am from the Metro Detroit area.
If you could provide some guidance I\'d be greatly appreciative.

My Hair Has Ruined My Life the Past Year ……
My hair is a knotted, tangled, matted, dreaded mess. Before this happened, which is a really sad story, my hair was waist length so all of that is basicially a birds nest with tons of knots and its so hard on the crown of my head is where most of the length is matted,dreaded and tangled.
Could someone please call me, I have a few questions. My hair has ruined my life the past year, you are my only hope!
much love,

Shampooed Immediately after Braids Removed……
 Hi i had braids in my hair and i just took it out . immediately washed it with shampoo and conditioner. It now very tangled to an extent that a comb can't pass through it. i afraid am going to loss my hair or cut it off. what can I do to save my hair.please help me.thx

I Went To A Salon……
Do you have any “Tangled Hair Techs” in the Indianapolis area?  Or anywhere in Indiana, for that matter—I am willing to travel if it means saving my hair (although I do have financial limitations to consider)!  I have tried detangling this mess myself, and when that didn’t work, I went to a salon.  Well, they couldn’t even undo what has essentially become one giant dreadlock.  I am scared and depressed and anxious and beginning to feel absolutely hopeless.  I don’t want to have to shave my head, but unless your team can help me, I’m afraid that is my only option.  Please help—I will beg and plead and do whatever it takes! 

I Used Regular Conditioner Mixed with Hand Lotion……
Hi, I am sure you have recieved similar desperate calls for help! I have some really BAD knots, no, BALL size tangled knots in my hair! I had a leg injury and was bedridden fot three months. I have almost waist lenght hair, I follow the Sufi Path and the hair are a part of my spiritual journey. Needless to say, I would feel " empty" without them. I could feel them knotting up under my hairband, I tie a ponytail but though I could be administered bed sponges, washing hair was not possible. I am better now and decided to take a proper bath and wash my hair. I googled and found I wud need to use a leqve in detangling conditioner. I tried in on but had absolutely no effect on the " balls" of hair. I tried without success and in desperation tried all the tricks I had read about, literally soaked them in oil, no luck,on top of the conditioner and oil,I used regular conditioner mixed with hand lotion. They seemed to bunch up more! And felt even tighter! Went looking for a hair salon for advise or selevtive trimming to salvage what we could, but its Sunday and the salons were closed. Last mistake I made was to use conditioner  by the handful and tried washing them hoping that they would have softened up and may untangle! I know its not advised to use water as they shrink. But I thought if I leave the conditioner in overnight they may get worse.
Is there any advise you can kindly give me in this regard? I have my hair since 1998, and have not even had them trimmed for the reasons I mentioned earlier! I am already in depression thinking what if I have to have them cut! 
Please help!.   
Desperately awaiting your response,

Matted Locks in New Mexico…
I have been depressed for several years and my locks are matted.
It has only added to my depression and I need help, now that I am better
My locks are matted in the center. It is amazing how my hair has grown
in spite of the mats. I wear a scarf to hide the mats. I live in Las Cruces,
New Mexico

 Choking Incident, Heart Stopped & Stroke……
My sister-in-law suffered a choking incident a few years ago. Her heart stopped several times and she had a stroke during the incident. She's had a big tangle on the back of her head ever since, but none of us knew. We just thought she was wearing a bump-it or something. 
The emergency is that her father's funeral is on Thursday morning and she lives out of town. None of us can get away to go help her with this and she can't come early because her cat is disabled and she can't leave it alone that long. 
I realize this is a short time frame to work with, but can you help her? She lives in Kokomo, Indiana.

Washed My Hair Before Detangling……
I recently took out my sew-in extensions and mistakenly washed my hair before detangling.  Now my hair is a matted, tangled MESS. My natural hair is very curly so it's even more demanding.  I have a scholarship dinner to attend this weekend so I am DESPERATE. If the product is not available or will not reach in time could you PLEASE refer me to other products or techniques to help get me out of this mess. I need help badly and I'm so scared, as I have finally reached past mid-back length and I do not want to cut it. I look forward to hearing from you soon.    Best Regards,

Two Tangerine Size Balls…….
Hello, I would love you to help me. My daughter (16) has an enormous knot of hair on the back of her head - two tangerine size balls either side of the back of her head and a lot of matting between them . My daughter had very low self esteem issues and her hair got neglected and now we seem to be on an upwards struggle to put it right. Do you have people In the UK - we can travel if necessary.

Cancer Patient on Chemo……
I'm in Melbourne, Australia. I'm a cancer patient on Chemo and for Christmas my fiancĂ© got me a sew in weave to cheer me up over my hair loss! 

I've had it in 2 weeks and have tried to maintain it but in the last 4 days I went from pretty long curls to hair that was half that length and badly matted! 
I have tried and tried spending hours a day with the help of a friend! 

Yes the girl who did my hair did a BAD job sewing it in... My hair underneath is unravelling, and now joining in this matted party! 
It's already fragile enough I am scared and freaking out! 
Do you have a salon, in Melb or anywhere I can get the unmatting product you sell? Contact me ANYTIME! 

5 year old daughter with Autism……
I really hope you can help me, I have a 5 year old daughter who has autism, from the moment her hair need brushing she hated it, screaming like I have never heard. We used to brush it and eventually calm her down but once she was diagnosed we realised there was more to it.

We carried on but then she refused to have a bath, it took 6 months to get her to get in the bath after that.

Needless to say her hair has suffered terribly, It has a slight curl to ends but is straight otherwise, it is now saturated to her head like a bird nest, you can feel the rim of it which covers most of her head. It is very long and I have tried Takedown remover cream but she doesn't have the patience to let me do it for long.
 Many Thanks 

I feel like I have lost all self confidence……
I've been looking for the services of a professional to help me detangle the huge Matt that has formed in my hair.

It first formed about a year ago and has slowly got worse, at one point it was covering my whole head. I have removed some of it but now has got to the point that I can't do anymore without help.

It's getting me so down and upset as I used to have beautiful long hair and now I have to have it tied up on a ball on my head. After recent weight gain I feel like I have lost all self confidence in myself.

Is there any way you can help me?

Thank You For Supporting Our New Fundraiser To End Depression From Very Tangled Matted Hair

Our ultimate goal is to raise funds to travel and provide our unique healing service to people who can not afford to travel to us or pay for our travel to them-to have their hair detangled.

Also we would like to train and hire more hairdressers, but we must have clients to train on and with.

 At present we have clients on our waiting lists- who are unable to afford travel costs/  They are requesting hairdressers to travel to them for professional detangling services.    

Fundraiser MISSION:
  To get people functioning again in life by keeping their hair.

Cutting is not the solution.  Hair is a large aspect of our identity.

We are contacted by people internationally.

Some have had strokes and have been unable to comb their hair for months.  Family members contact us for their children or elderly loved ones who are in nursing homes and their hair has been neglected.  

Others contact us with matted hair due to:
Wheel chair bound, 
Healing at home,
Sick in the hospital,
Family constraints,
Undergoing cancer treatment,
Coming out of a coma,
Hair product/hairdresser mistakes,
Medication side effects
Abuse victims     

In exchange for discounted rates for our detangling services, we will video record detangling a clients hair and use the video for training purposes.  

Sometimes it could take 2-3 days to detangle a whole head of matted hair that has not been combed for 6 months or a year.  So all clients must pay for any required travel and accommodations.  

People become depressed, if they aren’t already suffering from depression.   The longer the hair is matted and tangled, it causes headaches from the pain and weight on the head. It causes frustration, irritation, and low self esteem.  

People are ashamed to go outside of their homes, to work or to even to a salon because people will judge them.  And unfortunately most salons and hairdressers reject clients after they criticize or judge the condition of their hair.

How To Detangle Dry Matted Hair Without Conditioner


Dry hair detanglers like the Take Down Remover Cream work fast at softening the hair so if your hair is very dry it will be moisturized before you start to untangle the knots.  Patience is also needed when detangling dry hair-because if you rush, the hair can break easily.


NEVER SHAMPOO VERY MATTED TANGLED HAIR....It will only get WORSE.  This creates knots, clumps, or masses of tangled matted hair. 

== Things You'll Need ==
*Take Down Remover/Detangler Cream
*Wide tooth comb/ Rat tail comb(metal tip)
*A LOT of patience!!

  1. DO NOT wet the hair, this will only cause MORE tangles and breakage.  First, SOAK Take Down Remover/Detangler Cream on the hair and massage deeply.
  1. Next, add more of Take Down Remover/Detangler Cream  to your hair just as you normally would a conditioner and make sure that your hair is COMPLETELY saturated.
  1.  Take a (metal tip) rat tail comb and pick apart the knots and simultaneously use your fingers to  untangle. That will prevent breakage.  Using the Take Down Remover/Detangler prevents your hair from getting dry; however you should NEVER wet your hair or shampoo until hair is COMPLETELY TANGLE FREE. 
4.  Once all sections are detangled, feel free to braid the sections(if you want to) and then later  rinse Take Down Remover and shampoo with 
warm to hot water.

Your hair is worth saving

 Don't let anyone tell you its impossible!

Florida, South Hampton & Canada Convinced ….Conditioner Can’t Work, Knotty Boy Won’t Work. Tangled in Guyana

Hello do u untangle matted hair?  I was in hospital for 6mths and my hair got neglected, i hav been a victim in a relationship that was violent and controllin. I wasn't allowed to brush my hair, wear make up, clean my teeth etc.  He use to drag me across floor from one room to another by my hair,so now its a matted mess. I am so depressed i can't get it out. Iv tried knotty boi emergency kit and dozens of various other products.  I need help!
SH, England


Thank you kindly for your quick response.

In regards to putting water based products in my hair- like conditioners, I did exactly that thinking that it would be the best thing for me to untangle my matted hair from all the videos that I saw on Youtube etc.
 I purchased the Knotty Boy shampoo and conditioner emergency kit and then a detangler cream from the same line and it actually made my hair tighter and worse than it was prior to using these products. The hair is in a tight birds nest right now and very hard to the touch. I know I'm not supposed to wash my hair but it's getting heavy and itchy with the products still left in my hair. My hair is only matted on the one side of my head. Are you able to get out very tight matted hair?

You sent a link for the Take Down product you are offering. Is that good to put on over top of all the stuff I already have in my hair now or do I have to actually wash everything out of my hair and then apply the TD even though you say not to wash the hair? I haven't washed it since June 20th as I had an appointment but my hair has been like this for months and months and months with occasional washes here and there.

I guess the most important thing is that I need to know what would be the 'approximate' cost of having someone come to my place? As you  know, I'm in Canada and I won't be able to make it  as I'm still suffering from my illness and what comes along with it, I'm pretty much house bound, plus that would be rather costly and I am off work at the moment with no income coming in at all. Things are pretty hard right now but I want so desperately to hold onto my hair and TRY to fix it so that's why I'm inquiring about your services and then I will have to make a decision.

Thank you so much for taking the time out to respond back to me. I reallllllllllly appreciate it!

I would have called but I am rather depressed because of this situation and I tend to cry A LOT now when talking about my hair so I figured it was easier to send an email. Hope that it's okay to do so.

Please call me- my hair is naturally mid back but has matted & shriveled up. I am in Florida, Palm City, which is North of Boca Raton & South of Ft. Pierce, Fl. I need someone physically to help me. I cannot even sit up now because my hair is pulled so tight my eyes are slanted and scalp is on fire and beet red! I cant take it! i've been trying to get a response by emailing and voicemails and cannot get anyone to respond. Please please get w/me asap!! Thank you- I will drive or whatever it is I need to do to get someone to my home please. Thank you,

My daughter hair in the middle of her head is very matted and severely tangled hair. We live in Guyana. Can you help me in getting it untangled. Really need some advise.
Thank you

I have developped 3 knots/bird nests in my hair over the weekend due to a combination of permanent color and conditioning. I am in the LA area - could someone assist?

WATER Makes Matted Tangled Hair WORSE!

You are actually causing more harm to your very tangled matted hair when you use water, or even hair conditioners.
“We receive an endless number of service calls to detangle hair from  women and hairdressers alike who have made knots or clumps of tangled matted hair worse, tighter, harder and stickier from using an assortment of water based detangle sprays or conditioners.”

Hi my name is Ginger & I'm a 34 year old mother and wife. I have been living with a mental illness that keeps me so far down I go weeks without getting up out of bed. I was always a girl that loved styling my hair & now my hair is so matted that I have bad headaches, bumps from where the hair is getting tighter in this huge hard knot. My hair is matted to the scalp with only the thinest pieace of hair that hasn't broken yet hangs. I'm about to shave it cuz I tryed everything & this is causing me to feel so bad about myself that at times I want to die. I know that sounds extremely bad to say but its unbearable, so if you can help me with this issue it would mean the world to me.
 Thanks very much, Ginger
 Tangled life
my name is tanya I live in Tampa, fl. and I suffer from severe Depression! My hair is long and curly. .and I have not had the strength to do anything with it! About a month ago I lost my job and my home I have 3 teenage daughters, they all tried helping me, but I think we made it worst! I suffer from low self esteem as it is to go and shave my head! Can u Help me Please? Do u have a salon in Florida! I dont have time to wait a week because of the Easter holiday coming up on which I can not let my girls down!

I hope this is the correct email for Tangled hair techs. I'm in complete crisis mode... I am Caucasian that just took her tape in extensions and now my hair is RUINED. I mean before my hair was super thick and all I wanted was length. Now I have bald spots and matted hair to the scalp in the back. I have tried baby oil, olive oil, all the glue bonds that are supposed to take glue out and NOTHING is working. I live in Portland OR. Do you guys have anyone in Oregon or Washington? I'm so desperate PLEASE respond!

My name is Erin, most of my hair is matted. I was too depressed to care for it and now I'll probably have to shave it off. Please help me! I'm desperate. I live in Melbourne, Australia. Is there anything that can be done?

My hair is severely matted/tangled and has been for months! I really do not want to cut it off. I live in the uk. What products can you suggest ive spent hours with conditioners and olive oil but it hasnt worked. Do you have a salon in England?

Thank you for your response.  I ordered a bottle of take down remover and will advise when it arrives. Unfortunately I did start cutting my hair, not much, I felt I couldn't do anything else. Its matted into a bun and I can't even get to the ends to comb through. I have been so depressed about my hair which reached my lower back close to all my life. I don't know how I could let it get so bad. I know trying to fix it has made it  a lot worse.

" I thought if I washed my hair it would simply untangle the kinks and knots."  This is the first thought that comes to mind for most people in this predicament.  The most common mistake made when women remove weaves, braids, hair extensions, twists, dreadlock extensions or protective hair styles- is to shampoo immediately.  This creates knots, clumps, or masses of tangled matted hair.

Hi there,
My Grandmother has a severe situation of tangled hair.  It is long, down to her bra strap and has not been combed for at least a year or more.
I worked on it for an hour this weekend and was able to get a lot untangled, but she needs the rest of her head done.
She is 87 and poor thing, every salon has refused to do her hair.
Do you have anyone in Federal Way or close that could go to her, or that we could take her to?

Please help!! :)

Dealing With Very Tangled Matted Hair Requires Faith

Jesus tell us in the Bible,(Matthew 19:26) , "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

It requires faith to hold the tears back when everyone has told you to simply give up and cut your hair or your precious child’s hair.

It requires faith to stand tall when every salon or even your favorite hairstylist has rejected, judged you and looked down upon you because your hair is so tangled and matted.  And now you are depressed.

It requires faith to look in the mirror at your hair that is in clumps stuck to your scalp and say I will get my hair back!

It requires faith to not give up and keep searching for help.

Be aware that simply cutting tangled, knotted or matted hair can lead to depression.  We at Tangled Hair Techs take down tangled matted knotted hair through and with the tangible touch of GOD
