Making natural, organic hair detangler is great for your locks and your wallet. Natural detangler doesn't have any harsh chemicals that can coat, dry and damage hair. There are a couple different types of homemade hair detangler that are simple to make. One type uses vanilla extract to add sheen to the hair, while the other uses apple cider vinegar to soften the strands and strip them of any product that's clinging to them.

    Vanilla Detangler

  1. 1

    Pour 2 tsp of real vanilla extract and 4 tsp of dried oregano into a microwave-safe bowl. Add 2 cups of water and stir to combine.

  2. 2

    Microwave the mixture, uncovered, for 30 seconds. Allow the natural hair detangler to cool completely.

  3. 3

    Pour the homemade hair detangler through a fine mesh strainer to remove any bits of oregano. Transfer the detangler to a spray bottle and store in the refrigerator.

  4. 4

    Spritz hair with the natural hair detangler after shampooing and conditioning. Leave the solution on the hair while it's brushed and dried. The detangler will keep in the refrigerator for one to two weeks.

    Apple Cider Vinegar Detangler

  1. 1

    Boil 2 cups of water in a saucepan. Add 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar and either one to two sprigs of fresh rosemary or 1 tbsp of dried rosemary. Cover the saucepan and allow the mixture to steep over medium heat for about 15 minutes.

  2. 2

    Remove the saucepan from the heat, and let the homemade hair detangler continue to steep for about 30 minutes.

  3. 3

    Allow the mixture to cool completely. Pluck out the fresh rosemary springs by hand, or pour the liquid through a fine mesh strainer.

  4. 4

    Transfer the natural hair detangler to a spray bottle, and store it in the refrigerator until use.

  5. 5

    Spray the detangler on wet hair after it has been shampooed and conditioned. Towel-dry the hair, then style as usual. The vinegar scent may be strong at first but will fade as the hair dries. The homemade hair detangler will keep in the refrigerator for several weeks.
