I don’t know what Miss Frugal does to her hair when she washes it but everytime she gets out of the bath, her hair is a mass of knots and tangles.
To make it easier to comb through before scalp plaiting it for bed (she loves curly hair) we usually spray on a little bit of our homemade hair detangler which really does work wonders.
We have a spray bottle that we usually use to make our homemade hair detangler in but last week we made up a smaller bottle ready to take on holiday with us. As I was making it, it occurred to me that I’d never written about how we made it before so I took a few pictures and here we are. 😉
To make homemade hair detangler
Homemade hair detangler genuinely could not be easier to make as it only uses two ingredients (conditioner and warm water) and the quantities can easily be scaled up or down depending on the size of your spray bottle.
The quantities I like to use are 1/4 air conditioner and 3/4 warm water and I always make sure that there’s space in the spray bottle to give it a good old shake when the ingredients are in there.
After that, it’s ready to go!
Told you it was easy didn’t I?
Just spritz a little of your homemade hair detangler on your tangled hair and comb through gently to get rid of any tangles – it even as the added bonus of making your hair look shinier than normal although you need to make sure that you don’t spray too much on as that can have the opposite effect.
Don’t forget to shake it each time you use it to make sure that everything is all combined before you spray it on.
Some people add essential oils to the mix as well but I like to keep it as simple as possible and the essential oils don’t add anything to the mix other than fragrance it. If you do add some essential oils then just a drop or two will go a long way.
