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?

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.

Hello,
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

Detangling Hair May Not Be Glamorous..Its Healing



I had a sewin for 6 months.  I removed my sewin.  Since it had been a long time since my hair had been thoroughly clean (without the sew in) I decided to wash my hair.  After shampooing and conditioning my hair my hair was badly matted.   I did not know what to do to fix this problem.  Not only had I ever experience this, I also never really known anyone else to experience this. 
 I knew that if I went to a beautician they would have quickly cut all my hair.  I went on the internet to different sites.  I discover that I was not the first to have gone through this experience.  The remedies I found included saturating my hair with water and conditioner and slowly untangle the hair.  The first day I saturated my hair with water and conditioner and I tried untangling it.  I did this for the next three days.  I was successful at untangling some of the hair but as the days went on I discovered large bundles of hair all tangled up in knotts.  4 days had gone by with me spending hours with my hair and I had made no progress with the tangled hair. 

 I know it is just hair but if I could do anything to keep it I felt that it did not hurt to give it a shot. My hair was not just matted. Again it was matted and I believe the more I saturated it with water and conditioner the worse it got.  It was literally knotted  (huge bunch of hair all tangled up in a large hard hump of hair) in different sections of my head.  I mean really knotted (like rat knotts) the knotts were so big that I thought it would be impossible to repair.  My sister was convinced that it would have to be all cut.  I did not give up.  Through my research I saw a clip on YouTube with some girls giving a seminar on how to take down dreadlock and other matted hair with the TakeDown product.  I still did not think this would work for me because again my hair was now in big hard knotts.  I was at a little more ease knowing that someone has gone through this dilemma before me.  I finally sent a message to TakeDown and ask if it was worth the effort to save my hair or realistically was my hair the worse case.   TakeDown representatives responded and highlighted do not cut your hair. 

 They gave me hope although I rarely believe anything from the internet but it did not hurt to try to save my hair.  It already takes a long time for my hair to grow back so I just did not want to give up.  A tangled hair tech told me to buy the TakeDown product and give her a call and she would walk me through the process.  I did not know how she could walk me through the process with these big huge knots I had in my hair.  I ask if she knew anyone that could physically untangle this matted hair from my head.  I met up with this young lady with very little hope.  I really thought that I was being had or being given false pretense.  With patience (approximately 4.5 hours) she untangled the matted and knotted hair.  I could not believe it, but with the TakeDown product detangler products and more importantly with her expertise she untangled my hair. 

I would like to say thank you so much for your help!

Bridget from Chicago

 
Hey Ladies,

I ordered your product about 6 weeks ago.  Finally got the courage to
ask a friend to help me since so much was in the back of my hair.  We
used your product along with alcohol and it worked!  Yes, it worked!

My scalp was sore but the HUGE tangled matt is gone!  It took about 7
or 8 hours to do but Glory to God.  I thought I was going to have to
cut it but I didn't.

I am sooooo happy!
Bj
