Removing stubborn tangles first thing in the morning can be a recurring nightmare, especially if your hair is long. It isn't necessary to pay outrageous prices for detanglers to rid your hair of snarls and bird's nests. Instead, make your own natural, organic hair detangler that will leave your hair feeling soft and smelling great. A chemical-free hair detangler is gentle enough for children and won't irritate tender scalps.
