The toughest one I had to deal with I ended up using a dog brush, with the widely spaced teeth mounted on a flexable rubber base, a good dose of oil worked into hair first and start separating the hair with my fingers before brushing from the bottom up. Took a good 45 min, but I must admit I was glad aftwards that I'd been talked into doing it. It would have take a lot longer to get the hair back than the time I spent fixing it.

But I confess that when I looked at it (prior to fixing it) I just didn't want to have to deal with it when some snips with the scissors would have removed it so easily . So I know how you feel
