Posted on Monday, February 17th, 2014 at 8:00 am
Whether it’s you or your child, no one likes having knots in their hair. Even the most tender scalps need to be detangled every once in a while. Instead of purchasing an expensive and chemical-ridden detangler from your local drugstore, try making your own all natural and frugal remedy the entire family can use.
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.
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.
