Beautifully textured, wavy, sun-kissed seaside hair – isn’t that what we all imagine ourselves having after spending the day at the beach?
Unfortunately, the reality doesn’t usually match up to our photoshoot-ready fantasies. With salty ocean water leaving locks thirsty for moisture and that coarse sand finding its way from your scalp to your ends, it’s practically a miracle to walk off the beach without a chaotic, tangly mess.
Next comes the dreaded and very frustrating process of detangling. But before you begin ripping through those knots and snags — wait! Put that comb down!
Try this all natural DIY hair detangler to gently bring your hair back to a manageable state. Enriched with essential oils to nourish and moisturize your hair and scalp, this detangler will help protect your hair and prevent breakage after a day at the beach!
DIY Hair Detangler
What you’ll need:
- 10 tsps Rose Organic Hydrosol
- 1 tsp Aloe Vera Jelly
- 1/2 tsp Vegetable Glycerin
- 1/2 tsp Apricot Kernel Carrier Oil
- 3 drops Lavender
- 3 drops Cedarwood Himalayan
What you’ll do:
First, mix the essential oils with the Aloe Vera Jelly; this will help dilute and disperse the essential oils throughout the hydrosol. Then add in the additional ingredients. The Apricot Oil will sit on top of the water.
We highly recommend the addition of ½ tsp of polysorbate 80 to encourage the carrier oil to disperse. However, if you choose not to add an emulsifier, please shake well before each use. To use, spray the detangler into your hair and gently comb through your hair.
**To extend the shelf life of this product refrigeration is necessary.
