Detangler Issues? We’ve Got 4 Natural Hair Hacks You Need For Perfect Detangling!

Detangler Issues? We've Got 4 Natural Hair Hacks You Need 4 Detangling! Time to think outside the box for perfect detangling that won't harm your hair!

Detangler issues? If you’re someone who dreads the idea of wash day because of the hours you spend detangling, you’re not alone. In fact, as I’m writing this I’m cringing at the thought that I actually used to spend close to an hour and a half finger detangling my hair before wash day. While that may be because I rocked a twistout a couple of days too long or forgot to put on my bonnet before I went to sleep, I still wondered what I could possibly do in order to make this detangling process a little easier.


Now, I’m not one to go out and just buy a detangling product, because I honestly feel like its just watered down conditioner, so I found some of the easiest detangler items that will shock you!

This one makes so much sense to me, but still manages to baffle me at how easy it is. First of all, I was confused as to why my hair managed to glide so easily through the gloves as opposed to my fingers even though I was detangling the exact same way, and I still am. My guess is the fact that there’s nothing that the hair can grip on to, so it has no choice but to separate.

Make sure you’re wearing gloves that are not too big, or else they may cause further tangling and knots. Also, make sure you hair is completely saturated with conditioner and then finger detangle as usual.

When I read this it was like, “Duh, that makes sense,” but this is something I’ve never even thought of doing. Warming the conditioner or even your pre-poo allows it to penetrate the hair shaft faster and better since the heat opens the cuticle, which allows the hair to become more pliable and easy to detangle. It’s best to warm the conditioner in a hot water bath so that you don’t destroy the properties of it.


Bring about 3-4 cups of water to a boil and pour into a deep bowl; place the conditioner bottle into the bowl for about 5 minutes or until the conditioner is warmed all the way through. Apply to the hair as needed and detangle as usual.

So, it was wash day again and I had a week old twistout that was tangled, matted, dry, etc. but I didn’t have the time to spend detangling my hair. Although I’ve done clay masks before, I had always detangled my hair beforehand so I wasn’t aware of its detangler properties.

I decided to apply the mask (made with bentonite clay and Aloe Vera juice) to my dry hair and see what would happen. I was amazed to find that once I rinsed the mask out of my hair, detangling wasn’t even necessary. Now, I don’t exactly know how or why but my hair was like butter!  I was removing shed hair with ease and I loved it.

I usually use bentonite clay and some form of Aloe Vera juice or apple cider vinegar, but make your mask as you’re accustomed to doing, apply to either wet or dry hair, leave on for 25 minutes and rinse out. Finger detangle to remove any shed hair.

I ran across this method on Pinterest and thought it was pretty interesting. Apparently, using marshmallow root to detangle will make your process very easy. Since the mucous-like consistency of marshmallow root is similar to flax seed and Aloe Vera gel, it makes the hair very slippery and easy to detangle.

Here’s a popular recipe:

•       1-1/2 c. distilled water

•       3 tbsp Marshmallow root powder

•       2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

•       2 tbsp coconut oil

Bring the water to s slow simmer and take off of the stove to cool for about 1 minute. Place Marshmallow root powder into a ceramic or glass bowl and pour the hot water over it, cover and allow it to steep for 20 minutes. Strain the mixture through a mesh strainer or cheesecloth to get rid of any bits left from the powder. Add remaining ingredients and let cool until it’s room temperature and store in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to use it, just apply it to your hair in sections and finger detangle.

    What is your estimated time for replica watches items to be back in stock. We will wait a little while, by that I mean days not weeks. Otherwise we have no option but to request a refund, I do not expect charges to be levied for issuing a refund, we entered into a hublot replica for you to supply goods, if you have failed to complete the contract it is not my fault, if necessary I will refer this tag heuer replica sale to my card company for attention. Please advise me if no stock rolex replica sale available in that time. I can advise you how long I can wait, how long do you estimate the post would take to reach me.
