Default Natural de-tangler

(not oil based as i find they improve my hair, but leave it feeling more squeaky and prone to tangle than slippery atm)

.. so any natural products reasonably available than can help with my matted/tangles after i have worn my hair down? thanks

Do you mean a natural detangler outside of a condtioner or leave-in conditioner?

Kinky Curly Knot Today gives incredible slip. However, it's definitely a leave-in. Not just something you spray on.

yeah, most of the conditioners that are available to me contain lots of chemicals even if they don't contain cones ... and just wondered if there was something natural (an ingredient) that would offer the same 'slipness'

if not guess i'll have to buy online

Same. I have to order literally everything offline lol.

But I'd recommend the Aubrey Organics White Camellia or the Kinky Curly Knot Today. Both are amazing.

I can second that recommendation for the kinky curly conditioner.
I absolutely love it, definitely has "slip" to it and I put a good amount in and encourage the curls while it's it, and then I hold my head under the sink as if i was "plopping" and only rinse a little of it out, I leave some of it in for the leave-in conditioner. It's not a budget conditioner by any means, but its natural and organic - and like most things - you get what you pay for.

I use an aloe vera gel gel/oil mix to finger detangle. You could try using aloe vera gel to detangle.

You could also try using marshmallow root to detangle. It can provide slip because it's naturally mucilaginous(Mucilage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Here's a vid I found with more info on marshmallow root: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EU6cF7j5zc). Here's a thread on using it as a detangler/conditioning rinse: (All Natural Detangling-conditioning Rinse).

There are other herbs (flax seeds, irish moss, okra, etc) that have mucilage and slip. See the wiki and google for more info.

I haven't tried marshmallow root yet but I will in the future. I hope this helps.
