Homemade Hair Detangling Rinse

posted by on 11/15/2012 | 247 comments (leave one of your own)

I get a fair amount of emails from you guys. Number one email subject?

Squirrels.

Number two? My hair.

While I am not an expert regarding either (LIES), I know what works for me. My hair and I live at 7,000 feet altitude and it is wicked dry. In the winter when we turn on the heat, my hair can turn into a tangled disaster faster than you can say squirrel.

You ever want a mean pile? load? mess? of dreadlocks, move to Colorado.

I have used the same shampoo and conditioner for years, sure, I’ve tried to switch it up, but I always go back to what has worked for me for the last 20 years.  I get partial highlights and a trim four times a year.  Since my hair is color treated, I thought I needed a leave in conditioner.  Everything I tried made my hair look weighted down, was expensive, and really didn’t help battle the tangles.

While researching DIY leave in conditioners that were mainly just a tablespoon of regular conditioner and water mixed together in a spray bottle (dumb), I ran across a comment from a chick that was all, “I’ve used apple cider vinegar on my hair for 15 years as a detangler, it is the only thing that works”.

I believe pretty much everything the internet tells me, so I gathered $2 worth of apple cider vinegar vinegar and a spray bottle from underneath my sink and I was in business.

Homemade Detangling Hair Rinse

Here’s the super complicated Homemade Detangling Hair Recipe:

Take one 8 oz. empty spray bottle.  Fill it up a third of the way with the ACV and the rest of the way up with distilled water.

You might need to print out the instructions and refer back to them if it is too many steps.

(I have tried this with unfiltered organic ACV and just regular ACV.  I noticed no difference in the detangling action and the unfiltered is $6 a bottle.)

I keep the mixture in the shower and after I rinse out the shampoo, I spray the mix all over my hair, working it all the way through from the roots to the ends.  My hair is long, so I use quite a bit.  Do not get this in your eyes, it burns like a mofo, believe that.  After I have saturated my hair completely, I twist up my hair and go about the rest of my shower business.

When I am ready to get out of the shower, I rinse my hair with cool water.  I don’t really try to get all the vinegar out of my hair, mostly because I am lazy and I think it works better this way.  Since starting the rinse, I only use conditioner on the ends of my hair once a week.

Hair science time: The apple cider vinegar works because when we use products or color treat our hair, it becomes weird and stricken with alkaline. Stricken, you guys.

When you rinse with ACV, you balance the hair pH, remove the buildup, and it closes the ratty ass cuticles on your hair.

See? Science.

After I lightly comb out my hair, I work a tiny amount of grapeseed oil into the ends. I use grapeseed oil as a body moisturizer, so when I say a tiny amount, I am using the leftover residual oil that is on my hands after I am through moisturizing.  What I am saying is apparently I use my hair as a towel.

Once my hair dries, I can no longer smell the ACV vinegar.

After I took the obligatory hair shot, I realized that it was dumb to just show you the front.  I mean for all you know, I could have one gigantic dreadlock going down my back.

I know I need my roots done and I probably hadn’t washed my hair in two days, but look! no tangles.

Taking photos of the back of your own head?  Not easy.

I think I got this half hair shot after SIXTY tries.

I decided to switch it up, wish I would have tried this dumbass angle when I was trying to show you the bathroom lights.

I’m probably going to leave my day job and become a full time hair photographer.  Revel in my talent.

Go forth and douse yourself in vinegar and send more squirrel emails, kthx.

  • Hi


    Hi there!
    I honestly can’t think of any business that wouldn’t want their business in a tv commercial.
    However its really expensive and so untargeted! BUT How many sales or customers do you think you will gain if you had a commercial running when they were LOOKING for your business?
    My name is Steve and I am looking to work with a few businesses for an online commercial. Instead of being on TV, I want to put your business front and center with a video(commercial) on Google & Youtube in your local area. Not just 1. Not just 5. Not just 10.
    But a complete domination of your local market with as many video billboard commercials that it takes to dominate your area.
    How many new customers will you get if they search for your service or product and all they see are billboards showcasing you?
    I have a few spots open. To see proof of results and what it can do for you please go to http://bit.ly/Video-Domination-Marketing to see some sample results and how we can do the same for you.
