This morning my daughter's hair had some knots. It wasn't as bad as usual, but after I wet it, (I wet her hair just a bit every day to get the curls back, and for easier combing) the pick still didn't want to go through.
I took just a bit of the AHC, maybe half a pea size, and rubbed in my hands with a bit of water and ran it through her hair. The knots were gone, and the pick went right through!!! I waited for it to dry before posting, and her hair is soft and has lots of curl, and less poof!
If you have a conditioner that you love, you might want to try using it that way. If it doesn't work so great, and you use baby shampoo, you might want to switch her to a regular, sulfate free shampoo. (I recommend the AHS.)

I know my daughter doesn't have much hair yet, but it is quite curly. She has these crazy little spirals, and if I don't comb it, it is a snarled mess.
How about Curls Quenched conditioner or Blended Beauty Kick for Curls? They are both liquid, spray-on leave-in conditioners that help detangle. The BB is a little oily if you use too much, but when diluted with water (50/50) it's perfect. A lot of curlies also like the Curls Quenched.
If you had to hold her hair in her fist, you may be pulling too hard. Even if she doesn't cry, it could weaken her hair. Try sectioning her hair and combing from the ends up, working your way toward the scalp.
Well, Viva has always had to sit for her hair to be done (from about the age of 20 months.). it's all about the TV for us. she gets to watch a show while her hair is combed. Have you thought about braiding it in the back for bedtime? I braid her hiar every night before bed and it makes morning so much easier. Good luck!
