Hair Detangler – DIY Essential Oil Recipes for Moms

Hair Detangler-DIY

Hair Detangler:  For many years, people have used essential oils for hair care, due to their moisturizing, soothing, and enriching properties. About 2 years ago, I began using essential oils more and more for my family.  My daughter has very thick, wavy, crazy hair, so we looked in to making our own detangler.

Did you know that you can use essential oils for hair that feels tangled, course, or just plain stubborn? Check out this easy Natural Hair Detangler DIY that allows you to use soft, moisturizing essential oils to detangle your knotty, troublesome hair.

Lavendar and Rosemary Homemade Hair Detangler

There are few things worse than tangled hair–it can often lead to a tender scalp and lots of unnecessary hair stuck in your brush. Detangling Spray is a great way to get your hair tangle-free without the sore scalp. Apple cider vinegar is a natural detangler and essential oils add additional benefits to help keep your hair healthy and beautiful.
