Homemade Hair Detangler Recipe

Being able to make this homemade hair detangler recipe has saved me money, time and sanity! With such a busy lifestyle, it’s quite common for me to totally forget to restock simple things like body wash, or conditioner…which means a good portion of the time I end up standing in my shower looking for the thing that isn’t there.

Fun times. I wanted to see if there was a way that I could frugally make my own hair detangler. Yes, I know I can run to the store and pick up a bottle, but I am all about saving money! You can make so much more natural hair detangler at home with just a few supplies. The best part is that you know EXACTLY what goes in it.

Benefits Of Essential Oils

There are many different benefits to using essential oils. One of the things that always stands out is how AMAZING they smell! When you smell the oils they give you a calming feeling. You can use oils for different goals. For example, peppermint is great for energy and lavender is wonderful when you are ready for sleep. 

There are a lot of reports out there regarding essential oils. Many claims that they can ease discomforts and boost your immunity. Some of the oils can help with skin issues, relaxation, and a whole bunch of other things. Whether all that is true or not, I love using the oils. Give them a try and see if you notice any benefits. If you do, keep on using them! And if they aren’t thing that’s okay too. 

What To Look For When Buying Essential Oils

You want to find good quality essential oils and not knock offs. While some of them are much less expensive, they may not be quality oils. Look for essential oils that are NOT synthetic. You shouldn’t buy oils that aren’t in an amber or blue glass bottle. Real oils need to be in glass containers and those are the only acceptable colors.  Lastly, don’t buy large quantities of oils unless you plan to use them. They last a long time and there is no need for wasting them.
