how to make your own hair detangler/leave in conditioner (that works better then store bought product!)

how to make your own hair detangler/leave in conditioner (that works better then store bought product!)

I love using leave in conditioner on my hair after a shower, it helps with flyaways and frizz (especially since I blow dry my hair often). And recently my daughter's hair is getting long enough to warrant some detangler as well. And between the two of us I was replacing my expensive detangler almost once a week! 

So I came up with a mixture to make my own hair detangler and leave in conditioner. It uses just three things that you probably already have laying around the house. My favorite kind of DIY beauty product!

And I tested this detangler on the most intense of all hair challenges; a six year old girl's hair.

You will need

An empty spray bottle (you can reuse an old one if you have it!)
conditioner
water

the process

1. Choose your conditioner. You can use whatever you have laying around, or you can buy a small travel sized bottle of super expensive product if you feel fancy. Cheap dollar store conditioner also works! For this I used what I had, which is John Frieda's Brilliant Brunette (have you smelled it? It smells like chocolate!).

2. Squeeze some conditioner into your bottle. 

3. Fill your bottle about 1/4 the way full of conditioner.

4. Add warm water, and shake until combined

You're done! As you can see above, it took about two minutes to make, and worked fantastically! My daily fight with my daughter over brushing her hair became infinitely easier. And it worked better then my former leave in conditioner when I blow dried my hair, which is awesome. Any time I can DIY my own product and have it work better is a win.

  7. DOING THIS. I bleach and color my hair so much that I don't even *wash* it anymore. But I use conditioner and moisturizers and masks like the apocalypse is going to happen tomorrow and all conditioning must happen now or never. Anytime I can introduce more conditioning and moisture is a good day!

  8. I have a poodle mix dog with long hair at the ears which is always difficult and painful to comb out after a bath. Recently, I didn't get to his ears in time & they dried before I could get it done. On a whim I grabbed this stuff and just spritzed my dog once on each ear then combed it with a wide tooth comb a little before going to the fine tooth comb.
    Worked like a charm and smells good too! Thanks:)
