Hair treatment: natural hair treatment for tangled hair


Do you have tangled hair every day (even after a shower)?

Hair treatment Milk Relief Soap™

This goat herd enjoys tangle free hair with Milk Relief Soap™

Let’s ask the goat herd what her secret to tangle free hair is.

[Milk Relief Store] What is your secret to tangle free hair?

[Goat herd] Brush it with a wide tooth comb in the shower.

[Milk Relief Store] No kidding? Well if it was that easy, why isn’t everyone enjoying tangle free long hair?

[GH] Well actually, I brush it before I get into the shower with a normal hair brush. After I wet my hair, and soap it with Milk Relief Soap™ I massage my scalp with my fingers, while it is still soapy. Then I rinse the hair with shower water.

Because of the vigorous massage, the hair becomes tangled, so I brush it with a wide tooth comb, while it is still wet.

[Milk Relief Store] Okay, how do you dry your hair then now it is tangle free?

[GH] I put it in a turban made with an old towel. The less Terrycloth the better that is why old towels are better.

So after the hair is dry, then I brush it again. So that is how I keep my hair tangle free.

[Milk Relief Store] Well thanks for that! We hope that this has been useful for some of you out there.

Got fine hair?

If you have fine, long hair this technique might suit you. Everyone at our house uses Milk Relief Soap™ to wash their hair. Some of us also use Coconut Oil as well. We’ve attached a blog post from the Coconut Oil Shop, in it there are some articles about coconut oil for hair. We know that as soon as one person recommends a hair treatment, another person will say, “That won’t suit me!”

Here is another hair treatment using Milk Relief Soap™ and Virgin Coconut Oil.

Milk Relief Soap™ as Shampoo and Coconut Oil for Conditioner

The hair treatment routine above involved no conditioner at all. Another home grown hair treatment which one member of the team uses Apple Cider Vinegar and Virgin Coconut Oil.

You have a shallow bowl ready in your shower, fill it with hot water, and put in maybe a tablespoon of vinegar (organic apple cider vinegar is best) and a tiny wee drop of oil (optional – virgin coconut oil is best). You then dip your hair in the bowl and swish it around a bit to make sure vinegar water has made contact with most of your hair. Once it’s done, pour the remaining vinegar water over the back of your head. Rinse under the shower and you are done. [Caution: Just put a tiny wee drop of oil in the bowl. Too much oil will make your hair oily!]

We have not felt it necessary to do a vinegar rinse since we started using Milk Relief Soap™, because this soap doesn’t alter our hair’s pH too much and strip it of all its natural oils. We come out of the shower, and our hair is back to its normal silky state within minutes. However, if you are going straight from conventional shampoo + conditioner to a bar of soap only, you may feel the need to use a vinegar rinse at least for a time. After a while, your hair will adjust just fine, at least from our experience.

Note: Milk Relief Soap™ does not contain synthetic detangling agents found in commercial shampoos and conditioners, so if you have long hair, brushing it before washing may be a good idea. Vinegar rinse will help in this respect, too.

One of the reasons we decided to make Milk Relief Soap™ was so that we could have hair without tangles, and without nasty chemicals.

My opinion on tangles (an opinion from a man without much hair)

I remember doing the girls hair in the bath, when they were little. It used to drive me mad that their hair would get all tangled after I’d finished washing their hair with shampoo! In those days we used all natural hair shampoo, and it required conditioner (all natural conditioner) to detangle their hair. These days we still have little ones.  They are are Little sister and little brother to the now older ones. If we wash these little ones’ hair well enough with Milk Relief Soap™ they don’t get tangled hair.

But don’t take my word for it. What would I know? I’m just a man with next to no hair.

This one thing I do know

I used to suffer terribly with dandruff. But now that I have been taking a 160 ml jar of Ancient Wisdom Extra Virgin Coconut Oil into the shower to melt, I’ve had less trouble. Would you like to know what I’ve been doing with that jar of Virgin Coconut Oil?

I wet my hair, pour coconut oil into my hand, and rub it, and massage it into my scalp. Then I wash it off with Milk Relief Soap™.

It’s simple. Almost too simple really. So simple I decided to add another aspect to it. That is to put some coconut oil on my face too – after shaving.

So now we’ve spilled some of our hair care treatment secrets, hopefully some of you will be brave enough to count up how much you spend on shampoo and conditioner every month or so. You may be surprised! It might be worthwhile considering using soap, apple cider vinegar, and Virgin Coconut Oil instead.

You may even like to try Milk Relief Soap™. It’s all natural, take a look at the ingredients, if you haven’t already.
