I don’t know about you other Mamas out there, but brushing/combing my little girls’ hair after bathtime can be a less then pleasant experience for everyone involved. Detangle spray is my favorite thing on the planet after bathtime! I’ve never purchased commercial detangle spray, I’m way too frugal for that! I’ve always ‘made’ my own by putting a teaspoon or so of my conditioner in a spray bottle and mixing it with warm water. Well, now I know my conditioner isn’t all that great for me or my littles (why oh why Herbal Essences??). So when the detangle spray started getting pretty low in the bottle, I started brainstorming for a natural detangle spray recipe. After a little reading and pondering, I came up with this. It’s simple and easy. Try it out and let me know how you like it!
Ingredients and Materials:
Step 1: Simply add the oils into the bottle and fill to the top with water. Shake until well mixed and then spray onto freshly washed hair.
Super easy right?? It works really well, and smells pretty! It doesn’t leave their hair greasy, when their hair dries it’s really soft. And bonus! Lavender is known for its calming effect, so it’s a little extra trick up my sleeve to help the girls wind down before bedtime. And for the curious (like me), I broke down the price for this little concoction, it came to a total of $0.37! I like the sound of that!
If you try this let me know how you and your girls like it! Have happy hair my friends!
What else can you use Lavender Essential Oil for, you ask??
- Put one drop on a bee sting for near instant relief.
- Use one drop on a burn to relieve discomfort and to promote healing.
- Mix several drops into a small spray bottle with witch hazel and spray on Sunburns.
- Diffuse into the air to help calm rambunctious kiddos before bedtime.
- And so much more!
