|DIY Detangler Spray|
I'd like to call this homemade detangler, but do-it-yourself detangler is probably a better label. Either way, this is a great way to make a frugal, natural, non-toxic leave-in conditioner spray to tame bed-head.
Like many families, we give baths at nights and our kids' fine hair needs some help come morning. For a while I was making detangler from aloe vera juice and essential oils, but this one is much easier and cheaper.
Homemade Detangler Spray:2 oz spray bottle*
1/8 teaspoon Conditioner (your favorite non-toxic, natural brand: I like Earth Science Fragrance Free Conditioner)**
Put 1/8 of a teaspoon (or just a small dollop) of conditioner into the spray bottle. Fill with warm water and shake vigorously to dissolve the conditioner.
Simple as that you have easy, non-toxic, and super-cheap detangler spray. This spray works as well on my daughter's hair as the Paul Mitchel spray we used to buy.
Now, for fun, check out your commercial detangler and notice that the first ingredient is probably water. I realized I'd been spending $9.00 a bottle for a detangler spray that was probably at least 95% water.
PS I'd love to give credit to the source of this idea, but I can't remember where I saw it!
