Curly Girls 3 of 3
As curly girls, we all have those days when no detangling tool can make it through our hair. After lots of tugging and pulling you may want to give up, but have no fear. Just take a deep breath, relax and grab your favorite detangler. If you don’t have one or if you are just looking to save a buck or two, here are four easy homemade detangler recipes you can try yourself.
Flax Seed Detangler
1/4 cup flax seed
2 cups water
Grapefruit seed extract or any essential oils
To Make It:
Place the flax seeds in a pot with the water and heat it on low heat until it begins to thicken and form a gel. Make sure that you stir the mixture throughout to ensure that you have an even consistency. The longer it heats the thicker it will be.
When your mixture is as thick as you want it to be turn off the heat and allow it to cool.
To strain the mixture place a knee high panty hose over a cup and pour it over the pantyhose. Remove the pantyhose from the cup and squeeze it in a downward motion to strain the gel and separate it from the seeds.
Add the grapefruit seed extract to the gel, stir it and store in an airtight container.
You can use the gel as is to detangle provided that it is not too thick or you can add the gel to a spray bottle and add water until it is thin enough to spray. Remember to shake well before each use.
Remember that this mixture must be stored in the fridge and will last for about 3 weeks.
Enjoy these detangler recipes and as always remember to have love, peace and curly haired bliss.
