DIY Hair Detangler / Leave in Conditioner

Hey y'all!  I've been meaning to post this forever ago, but we've just been super, busy lately.  I just finished laying little Gavin down to sleep for the night, the house is peacefully quiet, and this is the first chance I've gotten lately to really sit at my computer and work on some things. :)

Anyway, I'd like to show y'all today how to make something that I use all the time: hair detangler.  My hair has pretty much always been very thick and tangle-prone.  I've been using the stuff from the store since I was probably about 8 or 9 years old, but I had no idea how simple it was to make yourself!

A few weeks ago, my 10-year-old, sister-in-law, Charlene (she also has really thick hair) stayed with us for a few days, and we made this together.  It works great!

All you need is:
                                                    1. your favorite hair conditioner
                                                    2. warm water
                                                    3. fragrance or essential oil (optional)
                                                    4. squirt bottle
Simply fill your squirt bottle a fourth of the way, or so, full of the conditioner (you can use less), then add warm water, and shake until mixed well.  Next add a couple of drops of your fragrance if you'd like; Charlene and I used honeysuckle (which you can find on Amazon, click here) and it smelled AMAZING!  If your conditioner already smells wonderful though, than you can skip that step.  That's it. It truly is just that simple and saves you so much money to make yourself, rather than buy it at the store.  It also really helps with static, and calms frizzy hair during these winter months, due to the dry, harsh, cold winds and low humidity.  The detangler/leave in conditioner makes a great moisturizer for the ends of your hair too.

I hope that this is helpful and informative for some of y'all out there that are
constantly dealing with long, thick, tangley hair like me!


  1. This is very handy, my mother tends to suffer from hair tangels very frequently almost everyday! her hair is very thick, wavy and long, it is hard to see how she struggles.

    I am sure she will be very happy with this conditioning recipe :) thanks Alice for sharing.

    Hope you are all having a wonderful evening.

    1. Hey, Laura! I'm glad you found this helpful and I hope it can help your mother. Thanks for stopping by. :-)
