I just usually go bare handed a hair at a time. Takes a while, but very worth it.

If I do use a product, it is baby oil, or like mentioned, kids detangler.

if the tail is really tangled you can use oil, such as cooking oil, any type, just takes a bit of effort to get it all out when your done lol.

I wonder if Pam would work (non-stick cooking spray) Hmm something to try next time Vida has dreadlocks.

The only thing that I've found that works for me is mane & tails detangler spray. I once had a mare with a thin tale were I was able to use no more tangles by Johnson & Johnson or the store's genaric equivalent. But it won't work for Tasha - it's too thick
