Teagan has very fine hair, which means that when it is time to brush and style her hair we sometimes have some crazy knots and tangles that leave her with tears. Not fun – believe me, I know the feeling – we have the same hair. I decided to jump on the DIY wagon last week and create something that would hopefully help those tangle tears stay away.
DIY Hair Detangler Spray
3 cups warm, not hot water
3 TBSP conditioner
10 drops lavender essential oil
1. Warm 3 cups of water – not too hot! Pour water into spray bottle.
2. Add 3 TBSP conditioner to the spray bottle.
3. Add 10 drops of essential oil to the spray bottle.
4. Secure top to spray bottle and carefully shake mixture in order for the conditioner to dissolve.
5. To use – simple spray on wet or dry hair and carefully comb in.
Not only does this make the tangles easy to comb out but the conditioner adds some conditioning and ease to the style you are trying to create.
Teagan loves her spray because it makes her mornings easier and no painful tangles. We love her spray because we do not have to feel like we are hurting her when we comb her hair. This is so easy to create and keep around the house, I am so happy we tried this to help our hair woes!
One of my good friends, Kari, recently introduced me to the do Terra line of essential oils and when I saw that the Lavender Oil was available through her I immediately ordered some. I knew that we would use the Lavender Oil for many DIY formulas and relaxation.
do Terra has the strictest requirements on the market to make sure that their oils are completely pure of any impurities. All testing is done by a 3rd party company. They buy the plants from where they grow indigenously for the highest quality of oils. And my favorite part is that they are reasonably priced!!!
You can contact Kari for more information on any of the do Terra Oils and she can help you decide the best ones for you and your family. Like I said, great quality and fantastic prices!

I have created my own detangler before and it was super easy and actually worked for my kinky hair. I love the scent of lavender essential oil.

I never thought about making my own detangler. My son needs it for his hair! I will definitely be trying this out when my lavender comes in.

We have a lot of hair in this house. 3 girls all with hair down to their tush. My 4 yo hates to have her hair brushed so we have to use a lot of detangler on her hair. This is a great idea to save money!

I totally need to give this a try! Myself, my 4-year-old and even my infant occasionally get knots in our thick locks of hair! It would be interesting to see if this works in our hair!

I saw this on Facebook yesterday and I have to make it! I have to use detangler all the time because my hair is so thick.
We constantly have tangles in my house. I have to make this and see how it works. Sounds like a great idea.
I love this idea. It sure would save me a ton of money. I will try this with my middle son for sure, his hair is always tangling up.
