Tangle Spray

I’ve always had long hair (except for that awkward year in 6th grade when I had a nice “my so called life” bob) so hair tangles are just part of the deal. It wasn’t until I had a 3 year old daughter with beautiful curly hair and reports of “head bugs” at her school that I needed a solution. Enter: YLEO. I did some digging and found several recipes for preventative care (aka no lice) and mixed it in with a DIY detangler using all my oils and the Young Living Lavender Mint conditioner.

Here is the recipe:

Supplies:

  • blender (just trust me)

  • 16oz clear glass spray bottles (here)

  • funnel

Instructions:

  • Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. You’ll notice the conditioner is super thick so this helps the solution blend easier + faster.

  • Let it sit for 5-10 minutes while the foam rests (this is totally normal).

  • Using your funnel, pour into spray bottle.

  • Add water if necessary.

I ended up having extra so I filled a few smaller bottles and put one in the car, one in our pool bag and one in the bathroom for backup! I know I sound like a broken record but there are so many things you can use these oils + products for. The best part of all of it is that I know the products are clean + safe for my kids.
