We Care About Detangling Your Hair

We know that Detangling Your Hair Is Not For Every Hairdresser....

But Don’t lose Hope.   We know that most hairdressers will not detangle your hair.  But we are working to train hairdressers all over the world that will care about detangling your hair.

We only use the Take Down Remover cream to soften and moisturize dry hair.  And to remove knots, clumps, tangles and matts.  We do not use conditioner, glycerin, detangler sprays or water based products to detangle very matted tangled hair.  It makes the hair worse!



Along with the product, our unique techniques allow us to successfully detangle every head with patience, persistence, prayer and faith. Remember “ With God All Things Are Possible”  Matthew 19:26

Hospital "Bed Head" Hair Remedies & Restoration

hospital "bed head" hair requires extreme detangling
A bed head is defined as (noun informal) a casual hairstyle resulting from failure to comb or arrange the hair after sleep.

Matted Because of Mold in Montreal
I hope you are well. I am in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and have long curly hair that is tangled and really BADLY matted at the scalp, which is unfortunately really PULLING AND HURTING my scalp. I was not able to care for my curly hair properly given that my bathroom ceiling/roof fell in early February and now my entire home is contaminated with mold toxicity, which is not helping to keep my hair manageable or tangle free. Please let me know if anything can be done to help my hair. I am sending you pictures of my badly matted and tangled hair, as well as what it used to look like before in its natural curly hair state and when I used to straighten it sometimes. I really would like to keep my hair without cutting it or shaving it off, as hairdressers in Montreal seem to find no other alternative.

 Matted Due To Illness In London

Hi there,
I live in London, and about 6 months ago I got
whooping cough and had it for 3 months, and over that period
I really neglected my hair because I was so ill. It became
incredibly matted all over my head. Recently I managed to

brush out the left side by cutting up and through the matts
and then brushing, but I lost a fair bit of length. I'm
now left with a rock hard matted ball on my right side, and
I just cannot brush it out. Can you offer any advice/help?
Thanks a lot, Amy


Dear Tangled Techs,

I have severe RA which put me in a wheelchair for over 3 years.  After have both knees and hips replaced, I can now walk somewhat.  I had gained a lot of weight while being in the chair, so I opted for bariatric surgery to help my joints.
Unfortunately,  the RA has now jumped to my shoulders making it very difficult to brush my hair and my hair has become very fine since the since the surgery.  It is now a tight matted mess!  I've tried some detanglers and conditioners, nothing really worked.  What little bit I've managed to pick out, sleeping on it works it back in again!
I fear that my once signature "Gibson Bun" will have to be shaved off and my long time collection of vintage hair accessories should just be thrown out!

What do I do?!

Matted While Sunbathing

PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME! I put Betadine & Glycerin in my hair while sunbathing. (I have done this before but, not while in the sun). I scrunched it up on top of my head. In a panic I made matters worse by putting a hat on my head. I have one massive long ball like a mo hock on top of my head fused together like cement. My hair literally looks like it melted together although I can't imagine those two products melting it. I have tried for days to get it out, using peanut butter, coconut oil and olive oil. At this point I just want to disappear.

Take Down Remover is my final hope before cutting off my precious locks at the scalp.  I can't let people see me like this. Do you think it is possible that this might work? I took off work two days because I work in a busy office and really can't go in with a baseball cap without a good excuse.

Thank You,
Carol

Hair Combed, Tore, Now is no More!

Thanks for contacting me but it's too late, my hair is no more.  I was hoping that my niece who is a hairdresser would get me out of trouble, she kept tugging at my hair, it all ripped out.  It's horrible.  I feel really upset about the whole thing.  I was mentioning this product to her and she just didn't want to know too much.  I was hoping that my hair she could save but this didn't occur.  She didn't cut it ,it was just combed hard until it tore. My head really hurts as it was painful also. I wish I had received your reply much earlier before she started.  It was like a birdsnest in a bit tangle that's how best I can describe it and in a big clump.  I didn't photograph it was too upsetting.  I would have purchased the product had I known it was available to purchase and would have waiting until it arrived if I had received a response earlier but the time difference between countries is different so that's why it's hard to get a reply quickly.  The worst thing I did was to wash it yesterday which tightened the hair and matted it even more.  She came over at 5 pm my time and it is now 11.25 pm at night here.  It took almost two hours for all this and at the end I was really upset and still am.  

She used olive oil to try and untangle it but that really didn't work just caused a lot of hair being torn/ripped, well broken.  I am really upset about it.  It took me years to grow my hair as it is really fine and it doesn't grow fast.

I just hope it all grows back but my hair doesn't grow fast at all as indicated.

Can you let me know what the cost of the product is just in case I need it as my hair does tangle easily because of it being so fine and how do you order the product and is it just one item or many?

Regards
Danni

Matted Mother’s Mistake in Canada

Hi my name is Kate and I live in Toronto Ontario Canada. I've been very sick for the past few months now and because of being so ill, my hair got neglected and I made the biggest mistake by washing my hair which has created a large, hard matted mess :( its embarrassing and I hate having to wear something on my head all the time. My health isn't looking so good but I dont want to look how i feel, i would like to at least feel somewhat normal and how I looked before. My hair is long but its all stuck to my head so it looks short and disgusting. My 6 year old daughter says she wants her mommy back and to be able to play with my hair again and to look how I used to. She's scared of losing me and her seeing me look this way, just reminds her I'm sick. Summer is coming and I want to look and feel pretty and feminine before then...
Pleeeeease help me!!

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.
Please.....is 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……
Hello
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 fiancé 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……
Hi,
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,
Depression,
Fear,
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


Hello,

Thank you kindly for your quick response.

video
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
Karen

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?
