     Num dia de vento, o cabelo todo desajeitado, como diriamos :"AJEITA O CABELO"?

++++++++++++++++++++++
    Borrowed from Fran:

Ajeitar = FIX
fix your hair = ajeite seu cabelo
straighten out = endireitar
untangle your hair = desembarace seu cabelo
how to untangle your hair = como desembaraçar seu cabelo
++++++++++

 

Key words for further searches -->

matted hair - cabelo emaranhado
messy hair - cabelo emaranhado/bagunçado cabelo  (sort of)
unkept hair- ditto.
disheveled hair - same meaning.

 

 

comb your hair/straight your hair/comb out your hair/disentangle your hair

More polite ways would be: "please, comb your hair, babe/honey/dear..."

                                          Please, comb your hair? will you?   [will soften an order a little bit!]

 

 

 

   I am no hair stylist, so they may feel to share their expertise with us, natives or more experienced/educated learners/teachers/tutors as well.  Any help is welcome.
