What happens????

What happens after my girls get a bath and go to bed? The reason I ask is because after bathtime each night, I spend an inordinate amount of time combing through the girls' hair getting all of the tangles out. Did I mention that they despise this? I didn't? Well, they despise this. However, I always feel a little sense of accomplishment when tangles are combed out and they are squeaky clean for bedtime.
However, when they awake: tangles. Those girls must thrash about at night in the craziest manner in order to achieve the rats' nests that I see greeting me every morning.

For no particular reason, I decided to prove that I wasn't going crazy by documenting this phenomena...

I don't really expect answers, however if you have suggestions to save me from this madness, they would be appreciated. Oh well, HAIR today, KNOT tomorrow. :D

I find that if I take my hair & wind it up in a loose bun (held in place by an old fashion scrunchie) that it does not have any tangles in the morning :)

No clue-just boys around me and I have short hair. Very pretty hairs, but what a mess in the a.m. Good luck!

Ya cut it! LOL. My girls hair is like that, but it was WAY too much drama in the am's, crying, fussing. So the hair got cut until they got a bit older. And I am still fussing with the oldest dd to take care of her hair at 14. But she wanted to grow it out! UGH.

Not sure if this would help, but L'oreal makes this kids no tangle spray. I bought it last year because when I go to the beach the salt water makes my hair horrible to deal with and I can't even get a brush through it. So I got the spray and the tangles come right out. It might help to use it with them in the morning.
