    • Hair Detangler Spray

      Getting ready for work or school in the morning isn't always an easy task, particularly if you or your child has "bed head" in the morning, a mess of tangled hair. Here are several simple recipes for making your own Inexpensive Hair Detangler spray to Tame those Tangles in seconds!

      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 personally have very long hair and it can be frustrating trying to get a comb through, especially if I happen to go to bed with damp hair. I've checked into the store-bought versions of detangle spray only to discover they are absolutely loaded with nasty chemicals such as , Behentrimonium Methosulfate , Sodium Benzoate , Dimethicone , Hydroxyethyl Behenamidopropyl Dimonium Chloride , Polysorbate 20 , Cetearyl Alcohol , Trisiloxane , Ceteth 10 , Laureth 4 - if you're not familiar with these, you can check out the health hazards here on EWG's Skin Deep Database.

      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.




      ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

      Aloe Vera Gel Detangler
      1 c. water
      1 tsp Aloe vera gel
      1-2 drops of glycerin
      2 drops lavender essential oil
      10-15 drops grapefruit seed extract

      Combine all the ingredients together in a spritz bottle, shake well to combine. Use as you would an detangler spray.

      From Tangled to Tame . . . Recipe #2

      • 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).

        Tip for helping to detangle hair and head lice control. Along with any of the recipes shown add a few drops of Tea tree esentail oil to the mix to help clear away head lice and keep hair clean and clear.

        I use this every day with excellent results. I have long hair and my daughter has corkscrew curls. Its fantastic on both hair types! And really cuts down on the time (and pain) it takes to do a little girls hair in the morning.

        Thanks for sharing this idea. My grand daughter has the curliest hair and there's always arguments because of it. Even has cut her own hair because of curls. I can't wait for her to try this. Again thank you so much! Sue

      There are so many different things we repurpose around here. The one that I like the most is I turned my old changing table into a recycling station. I took it--it has 2 shelves and then the top. I...
