[Homestead] Hair conditioner alternative

I am trying to get away from creme rinses. I detest synthetic chemicals
in my house and I want to be dependent on as few consumer goods as
absolutely possible (preferably none at all). I wondered if olive oil
would work, then I imagined using the apple cider vinegar (ACV) that I
use for my own hair with olive oil, and realized I would just be putting
salad dressing on their heads. :)
> For long hair, the easiest way to detangle is also the cheapest. Go to any
> Dollar Store or discount store and buy the cheapest creme rinse (you don't
> need conditioner) you can find. Mix a capful or two in a large cup (like
> something you'd get at Mickey Ds) of water and pour over the ends of the
> hair. Don't pour over their head. Use a pin brush to detangle while the
> hair is still dripping wet (I had the kidlets stand in the shower) and then
> rinse the hair.
> Makes for nice untangled and shiney hair without the build-up on the scalp.
