I have naturally curly hair…which translates frequently into “big, frizzy poof head.” I’ve tried more creams and expensive oils and leave in conditioners than I could even count. Since working out almost daily, my hair can get super dry from all of the washing. And trust me, after a T-25 workout, you want me washing my hair.
Awhile ago, I had made a “healthy hair spray” for my daughter using essential oils that not only helped detangle her locks, but also made her noggin much less attractive to creepy crawlies (I refuse to even say the “L” word!). One day, frustrated with my own dry mass of curls, I decided to try it out for myself. Lo and behold, it was wonderful! So, if you’re hair is getting a bit brittle thanks to the need for frequent washings, you might want to give this combination a try.
DIY Hair Detangler and Moisturizer
Now, we use Young Living Essential Oils, because of their purity and the lack of added fillers. We’ve used them daily for over two years now, and I honestly can say that they have been a huge blessing for our family. If you’d like to know more about essential oils or Young Living, please contact me and I’ll be happy to share what I know. Anyway, this mixture leaves my hair softer, smoother, and waaaaaay less frizzy. I’ll admit that I am not a big fan of the Tea Tree smell, but I do like the things that oil does, so I suck it up.
