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!)
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.
I hope you loved this simple diy project, and it's as useful to you as it was for me. If you'd like to see more of the things I create and tutorials I share you can check those out on my diy page!
