All Natural Hair Detangler

DIY Hair Detangler

My daughter has LONG, thick yet fine hair.  After a shampoo or before school, combing out her hair always turns into an ordeal.  I realized I had to do something since every time I comb her out, the comb is full of her hair!  So, I started scanning the internet for a simple non toxic spray-in conditioner.  Turns out, this couldn’t be easier.  Some sites suggested to just dilute conditioner with distilled water and put in a spray bottle!  I should’ve thought of that!  I decided I would try my own recipe all though, diluted conditioner is super easy and very effective!   This recipe took me maybe two minutes to put together and the results are great.  So, enough chit chat-let’s make it!  Your daughter’s hair or your hair will thank you!

All Natural Rosemary Lavender Detangler

8 oz. distilled water

1 tsp. Aloe Vera Gel (find it HERE)

2 drops Glycerin (find it HERE)

5 drops Lavender Essential Oil (find it HERE)

5 drops Rosemary Essential Oil (find it HERE)


  • Mix all ingredients in a spray bottle and use on wet hair.  It’s that simple!

I used Rosemary essential oil (find it HERE) because it’s great for hair and smells wonderful!  It is great for hair growth and adds shine.  Lavender essential oil (find it HERE) smells amazing too and is good for dry hair.

    How long should you leave the detangler on for, before you brush your hair?

  2. To add to your detangling spray, teatree oil and lavender both repel head lice so would be a welcome addition in that season!! 🙂

  3. Oh and only brush dry hair!! It’s best to use a wide tooth comb on wet hair as it doesn’t stretch and damage the delicate wet hair! Pure bristle brushes are also great BUT only on dry hair!

  4. Hi Jenni, thank you for sharing all of this wonderful information with us! I love your blog:) I was wondering if you can please advise me on shampoo recipes?

    • Deborah-Unfortunately I can not! I have experimented with many shampoo recipes and always end up with flat, greasy hair. Shampoo is not something i have been able to DIY. Hopefully someday I’ll figure it out! Thanks so much!!!

  5. Just tried this! LOVE it! So simple and it WORKS!! I gave it a review on my blog…hope you don’t mind! 🙂

  6. I’ve been using this for a while and thought it worked pretty well. I have butt length naturally curly hair, as in, spiral curls by itself curly. I usually comb my hair out in the shower with lots of conditioner in it but that has been getting more difficult as my hair grows. This spray got the ultimate test today. I’ve had the flu since monday and my hair has been in wad since then. I sprayed this in and even the scalp level knots came out without a problem. I love this stuff!

  7. how long does it last?

  8. Jenni-

    How does this work for taming and smoothing frizz in addition to the detangling?

  9. Jenni,

    Shoot, I just realized I have everything to make this except the aloe Vera gel. :(. Is there anything that I can sub?

  10. Angie MaKarrall says:

    What’s the benefit of the glycerin ?

    • Angie-It helps smooth the hair and detangle. It also is a humecterant and draws water to the hair. I use it in this for it’s smoothing purposes.
