DIY All Natural Hair Detangler Spray

My son, Max, has really long hair that I can't bring myself to cutting short. He has so many years ahead of him to have a little boy cut. I just can't cut his golden locks!

The downside to this long hair is that it tangles easily, so brushing after showers or bath is sometimes a struggle. I found a few DIY hair detangler spray recipes on Pinterest and decided to put together my own.

1/8 cup of water
2 Vitamin E drops (I purchased mine off of Amazon)
1 tsp. vegetable glycerin (also purchased off Amazon)
8 drops of lavender essential oil (I wanted to make sure this was included since I use it on Max's hair right before bed time)

2 or 4 oz glass spray bottle

Combine all ingredients into the bottle and shake before every use. I use about 4-6 sprays on Max's hair and then brush.

The result:
This works really well to help detangle Max's hair. Added bonus: it smells amazing. Nothing like a little lavender pre-bed to help get the kiddo in rest mode. I started with a smaller amount of ingredients just in case I didn't like how it turned out. If you double this recipe you will over a months worth of spray.

If you have your own hair detangler recipe, I'd love for you to share in the comments below.

  1. This is SO great to know! My girls' hair is SO tangly all the time, and I love the idea of using this all-natural product. Have you checked out the Wet Brush? It's crucial here!

  2. Sounds good for kids with tangly hair! My own hair tends to get tangled sometimes too.

  3. This is a great idea. My granddaughter always cries when we brush her hair. I've tried a few store bought sprays but they never seem to work. I'll have to give this a try.

  4. This is cool! I always get tangles whenever I wash my hair. Hope it's available here.
