DIY hair detangler using essential oils

My kiimageds wake up with bird’s nests and scream and holler when we try to comb their hair the next morning.  I got ideas for this recipe and then modified it to work for us.  It is a great, all-natural recipe for no-tear de-tangling of the kids’ hair and mine.  ūüôā   You can substitute any of these ingredients but make sure to add in rosemary and tea tree oil because those are known to repel lice too, so get two potions in one here.  Make sure to check out the lice spray recipe too, so you can decide if you want to combine them into one.

I should caveat that I make mine slightly oily so their hair will be oily, but you can substitute almond, coconut and vitamin E oil with conditioner or witch hazel or just plain water.   I add 1 teaspoon of Almond oil and Vitamin E, plus 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and melt these to add into water. I used a glass spray bottle as seen here from Amazon (affiliate link):

These spray out and have a protective stop (you can put back on to travel with them), so it is perfect for a detangler or the lice spray. I filled the remaining bottle with water, and added these essential oils:  3 drops of Ylang Ylang, 3 drops of Tea tree, 2 drops of Rosemary, 3 drops of Lavender for a nice scent, and 3 drops of Cedarwood (prevents hair loss too).    Learn how to get 24% off your essential oils and your very own starter kit with 10 oils!   Shake it up, and it is ready.  Shake before each use.

Happy de-tangling!
