Homemade Hair DetanglerIf you don't have detangler on hand, you can mix up some yourself. There are several options:
- Dilute regular hair conditioner. Spritz a mixture of 2 tablespoons conditioner in 16 ounces of water onto damp hair.
- Fill a spray bottle with the following herbal hair detangler mixture:8 ounces distilled water
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
10-15 drops grapefruit seed extract
1-2 drops glycerin
1-2 drops essential oil (e.g., lavender, jojoba, chamomile)
- Rinse hair with rainwater (usually acidic) or make your own acidifying rinse by adding 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar to an empty 20-ounce water bottle. Fill the remainder of the bottle with water and use the mixture to rinse clean hair.
- Rub tangled dry hair with a dryer sheet prior to combing it out
