Selkie Natural Hair Detangler

(24 customer reviews)


Many commercial detanglers are loaded with mineral oil, parabens, glycerin, and silicones that can leave hair looking greasy or build up over time. By contrast, every ingredient in Selkie Natural Hair Detangler is vegan, hand-blended, and certified organic. Selkie is lightweight and effective while still washing out with even the most gentle of natural cleansing methods.

Aroma: Eventide- A night-blooming forest undulating with dusky vanilla and flashes of crisp evening dew. Unisex.

Reusable, Recyclable & Biodegradable Packaging: Refill your glass bottles with a paperbottle refill! The shell and inner bottle can both be recycled, but if they are thrown away they both biodegrade within a year.

    Selkie is easily the best herbal detangler in the world and maybe even the best out of all the detanglers. Also the smell is amazing.

    Works great! Just the boost I need for my daily detangling. I use Selkie as a leave-in on days I’m wearing my hair down, as well–it really helps reduce frizz, and doesn’t weigh down my lightweight hair at all.

    You never realize how much you rely on a product until you run out of it. My refill just arrived, and I am happily writing this review with easily manageable, smooth, and tangle free hair once more! I also really love how the refill pouch comes in sustainable packaging! While Selkie is a bit more expensive than some other detanglers I’ve tried in the past, the quality is unmatched and Selkie is worth its weight in gold! And bonus, it smells amazing!

    Such a great detangler! I usually rely on coney detanglers, but Selkie beats them all! It smells wonderful, detangles quickly, can be used whenever without weighing down my fine hair. It also works great for scalp dryness and irritation. Leaves my hair soft, detangled and never dry or crunchy like some heavy coney products do.

    LOVE this product! It helps when combing my hair out on those days when it gets a bit tangled and helps the knots to slide right out! 😀

    This is the product that got me into buying hair care from NightBlooming. I got a bottle as part of a swap on the Long Hair Community forums and was blown away by how much my hair liked it. It doesn’t weigh my fine thin hair down, just adds condition and slip. The cardboard bottles are sturdy enough to survive transatlantic shipping.

    Selkie has been the only constant in my hair care regimen outside of shampooing and conditioning for over three years now. Many things have come and go, but Selkie remains, haha. The scent profile is a little different each time depending on how it was blended; the lime and vanilla are my favorite notes (my kids describe it as “aahh, so fresh”, lol). I know I could probably use a little bit of a leave-in in addition to Selkie to help with frizz and fluctuations in humidity, but I definitely appreciate that it doesn’t include glycerin because the humidity is killer where I live most of the time. Looking forward to gifting trial sizes this Christmas!

    I originally ordered the trial size of this detangler because I have been disappointed by other products in the past and wanted to try it out. I loved it so much I bought the larger refill. It smells incredible and works great on my long wavy hair. I highly recommend this detangler!

    It took me a while to love Selkie, but now it’s an absolute staple for my hair. Because it’s a natural product it didn’t give me as much slip as I’m used to, but Selkie adds moisture to my hair without weighing it down or making it greasy. Totally worth it.

    This keeps my curly hair moisturized and tangle free. I use it with Lassëa conditioner bar to keep my curls happy!

    I had bought this for the first time on Etsy in an effort to up my hair game not really expecting to love it so much, but it is now part of my regular routine. I love how it makes my hair feel soft and manageable, not to mention the scent is heavenly! I love the scent so much and always get compliments on it and love how it gives me ethereal forest vibes. I was super excited that Eventide become a fragrance on its own because its just that amazing. I also appreciate the eco friendly refills and packaging. My only suggestion might be to offer replacement pumps for the sprayer for the bottle in case it jams up etc. that’s been my only issue.

    My tangle prone, thigh length, fine hair is never perfectly detangled, but this product does more than any other to keep the tangles manageable and my hair feels so soft and moisturized after using it. Many tangles fall apart or are far more easily manipulated when I use Selkie daily. Most detanglers and leave ins make my hair feel sticky and cause me to accumulate more tangles, but this detangler never causes me that issue. My hair just soaks it up and feels so soft. I’m glad to have added this product to my routine. It helps me not lose my mind combing my hair.

    Been using the detanglingspray for about a year now, and I absolutely love it.
    It smells wonderful, and does its job.

    Just this morning when my hair was one giant mess of knots, the spray made it so easy to detangle.

    This is absolutely the best detangler I have ever tried on my thin and tangly curls! The scent is quite nice as well. Definitely my new go to detangler. Highly recommend giving this product a try!

    I also added this to my Enyo henna dye application and washing out the mix in a mermaid soak was so simple!

    This stuff smells INTOXICATING. I think I overdid it a little my first time using it because I was immediately enthralled. (Okay, maybe obsessed? It’s not my fault, really!)

    I went without Selkie for a few weeks and I felt it, haha. I’ve stated in a previous review that this does not equate to a “leave-in conditioner”, but it definitely adds something more than misting with straight water and I never have to worry about over doing it. I have fine wavy-ish hair that I henna anywhere between 6-10 weeks (to my shame lol). I have gone months (actually years) with almost nothing but shampoo, conditioner, and Selkie so I know that it’s worth its salt (or spray… sorry, couldn’t help it). Hoping to find the right leave-in to pair with it for both winter and summer here in north Texas, but for now, Selkie is my adopted hair child, haha.
