DIY Hair Detangler

What You’ll Need:

  • Large spray bottle 
  • 1.5 cups of distilled water
  • 3 tbsp. of marshmallow root
  • 2 tbsp. of your favorite all natural conditioner
  • your favorite essential oil (optional)


Take a small pot and boil your water and marshmallow root together. Once your mixture has boiled together for a few minutes let it simmer for 20 more minutes. Pour your boiled mixture through a strainer and into your selected spray bottle. Next you’ll need to add your favorite all natural conditioner and essential oil. Considering the essential oil is only for scent add as many drops as you see fit. Place your cap on the large spray bottle and shake the bottle until all contents are thoroughly mixed. Let the mixture cool before using.

General Tips:

If you have especially unruly hair we have some tips on how to use your detangler. Instead of using it outside of the shower, try bringing the bottle and a comb or brush in the shower with you. Apply your detangler after you’ve shampooed and conditioned your hair. Gently use a brush or comb to work through your hair to remove knots. Once you step out of the shower use a towel to pat dry your hair so as to not tangle it again.

Big thanks to Wellness Mama for the detangler recipe!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
