Are you looking to detangle your hair with home remedies? You’ve come to the right place. Home remedies often get a bad rep, but sometimes they are exactly what you need. In this article, we’ll share with you a few great home remedies you can use to detangle your hair.
People all over turn to coconut oil to detangle their hair, and there’s no wonder why! Coconut oil is fantastic for detangling because it is slippery and makes it easier for your strands to glide past one another. To use coconut oil to detangle your hair, simply dispense some into your hand, apply it to your hair, and then comb through it with a wide-toothed comb. This remedy works best for straight or wavy hair - not for curly hair.
You can also use olive oil, jojoba oil, or castor oil to detangle your hair in the same manner.
Avocado and Olive Oil Mask
Avocado and olive oil is one of the most-used home remedies for hair. Both avocado and olive oil are packed full of hair-loving nutrients and make your hair slippery. It’s for this reason that these two ingredients make such a great detangler. To try an avocado and olive oil mask, mash one avocado, add two tablespoons of olive oil, and mix thoroughly. Apply the mixture to damp hair, massage it in, and let it sit for 15 minutes. While the mixture sits, detangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb. With the mask on your hair, the comb will glide through your hair like a dream. Rinse the mixture out of your hair, and then proceed with styling your hair as usual.
Honey and Olive Oil
Honey and olive oil is another excellent remedy you can use to detangle your hair. Honey has a slippery consistency and the tendency to coat and smooth your strands, making it a fabulous detangler. To try this remedy, mix 2 tablespoons of honey with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Then apply it to your wet hair and use a wide-toothed comb to remove knots and tangles. If it’s more your speed, you can add some water to the mixture, pour it into a spray bottle, and use it as a spray.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV Detangler)
Apple cider vinegar is a natural detangler that can make your detangling sessions a breeze. It makes your strands more pliable and smooth. Here’s what you need to know about trying a DIY ACV spray. Gather your ingredients: ½ cup of warm water, ½ cup raw apple cider vinegar, and 2 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. To make the spray, put all of the ingredients into a spray bottle and shake to mix. Spray the mixture onto your hair, and then use a wide-toothed comb to remove any tangles or knots.
With these home remedies, you’re well-equipped to have a no-fuss detangling session. We trust that one or more of them are precisely what you need to get rid of your tangles fast.
