I was in a horrific car accident where I broke several bones including my spine. My hair was in one big blood soaked tangled mess. There was dirt, gasoline, sticks, and rocks in my hair. We tried everything to get it out without shaving my head and nothing was working completely. This detangler saved my hair. I had to cut my hair a bit, but this saved me from losing all of my hair and from a lot of extra pain from combing through the mess. I highly recommend this!
