I was looking for a word that means to comb hair in such y way to remove all the tangles in hair. I looked it up in a Polish-English dictionary and I found the word 'detangle' which unfortunately isn't found in any English dictionaries. And I checked against dictionary . com, WordReference dictionary and Merriam Webster. My question is does this word exist? If so, do you use it? If not, what word do you use to describe the action I mentioned at the beginning of this post?
