By far, the easiest Homemade Hair Detangler Spray is a simple mixture of your favorite brand of conditioner. If you use store-bought conditioner, this method is a great way to use up the leftover conditioner that seems to cling to the very bottom of the bottle.
3 T. conditioner
1 1/4 c. water
Measure the conditioner into a clean empty sprayer/spritzer, add the water, seal and shake well to combine. Spritz this on the hair liberally while it is still damp.
I've opted out of using mass chemicals on my children and myself and have found several simple recipes that I've had great success with.
From Tangled to Tame
- 12 ounce or larger spray bottle
- 1.5 cups water
- 3 tablespoons marshmallow root
- 2 tablespoons Organic conditioner of choice
- 10+ drops of essential oil of choice (completely optional)
Place marshmallow root in a small saucepan with the water and simmer for 20 minutes or so until it forms a gel. The longer you heat it, the thicker it will become. Strain it and add the remaining ingredients. (This strains well with recycled pantyhose stretched over a bowl).
