The detangler is now ready to use
To get rid of knots, simply spray the mixture over the affected hair and allow to sit for a few minutes before brushing. To use as a leave-in conditioner, spray the mixture all over freshly washed hair and allow to dry.
Because apple cider vinegar flattens the hair surface, it allows a comb or brush to glide easily through the hair. In addition, it also reduces frizz and it is a natural conditioner. Lavender essential oil, on the other hand, has a softening effect on the hair and imparts a beautiful fragrance to it.
