This DIY hair detangler is seriously so easy to make, I will never buy a spray again.
My daughter has my hair, which is both lucky and unlucky for her.
Unlucky because it’s so fine that she will probably never have a long, thick, swishy ponytail but also, totally lucky because I know how to deal with it.
My mum has really different hair to me so dealing with mine was a lot of trial and error. She always thought it needed to be trimmed but no amount of taking off the ends was going to make it less scraggly. It’s just is how it is. Or how it WAS pre-GHD.
I, on the other hand will be able to pass on all my fine hair knowledge to my lady and she will never have to suffer through a hairdresser wanting to cut it wet while exclaiming over and over again how she basically has no hair so layers aren’t an option, because it’s just not true. Extremely fine hair just needs to be styled first then cut and you can do whatever you want with it.
And as for hair styling products, I will be able to tell her to just not go there, unless it’s good quality dry shampoo. Fine hair can get that stuck-to-your-scalp look really easily with the wrong product. She probably won’t listen though.
But there is one thing that her fine hair loves, and that’s detangler. Popping in a bit of extra, non oily moisturiser is always a good idea and this is the recipe that I use.
DIY hair detangler ingredients
1/4 cup of conditioner – I like the ecostore fragrance free one
1 cup of warm water
2 drops of eucalyptus oil – I hear it scared the nits away, so far so good.
