Homemade Hair De-tangler


My hair is down past my shoulders now, and with the cold, dry weather we've been having I wake up most mornings with a tangled up mess to brush through. Some mornings I shampoo and condition in the shower; other mornings I simply condition. But then there are the days I don't have time for either. As I delve deeper and deeper into a chemical-free lifestyle, I decided to search for a homemade hair de-tangler recipe. I found several; most involved diluting commercial conditioner with water; not exactly what I had in mind. I dug a little deeper. After a bit of experimentation, this is the combination I like best.

HOMEMADE HAIR DE-TANGLER

8 ounces distilled water
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
10 drops grapefruit seed extract
2 drops glycerin
2 drops lavender oil or other essential oil

Come all ingredients into a spray bottle; spray generously onto wet or dry hair before combing or brushing.

It works great and the light natural scent is delightful.  Recommended!
