|What you'll need|
There are a number of spray-in hair detanglers on the market, some which work and some which don't. I gave up on them last fall when I read the list of ingredients on the brand we once used. It contained at least 7 dirty dozen ingredients, which included carcinogens, and because it was something I used daily on my kids' hair, I decided to give it the heave-ho.
This week, I tried a new recipe that worked almost as well as the previous toxic brand. Another great point, it costs next to nothing to make.
I took the dirty-dozen free Oneka hair conditioner and squeezed in enough to cover the bottom of a 750ml clear plastic spray bottle that I bought for a buck at the dollar store. I filled the spray bottle up to the top with water, shook the mixture until there was no more conditioner on the bottom, and my detangler was ready.
My son, as you can see, has been harder to pin down to try out our new product.
BTW, Lucie finished her lemon and ylang ylang shower gel and said that it added enough moisturizer that she didn't have to use as much body lotion after her shower (recipe in first link under Other related posts). I also had two other people sign up as guinea pigs. One is trying out a lavender and grapefruit shower gel and to date, she seems to be enjoying it.
