The Best Natural DIY Hair Detangler Recipe

The Best All Natural DIY Hair Detangler with Essential Oils

I made this hair detangler a while back, when I was pregnant with Lennon, but I never got around to sharing a post about it. I’ve been using it for the past several months on both my girls and myself and it’s seriously one of the best DIY’s I’ve ever attempted! I love it, we use it every single day and it leaves our hair so soft and it smells so good too. And I love the fact that it’s made with all natural ingredients too!

So better late than never, I thought I would share the recipe now.

The Best All Natural DIY Hair Detangler with Essential Oils


1 part Aloe Vera gel
1 part Vegetable glycerine
5-10 drops Lavender essential oil

Here’s a video I made a few months ago for the tutorial, I think I was about 6 months pregnant here. 🙂

When using essential oils, always use glass bottles.

I get all my supplies from Amazon. You can get the vegetable glycerine here.

    Oh wow, this looks SO easy! My hair is suuuuper thick, and all the way down to my bum, so it tangles pretty easily-especially after I get out of the shower! I would seriously feel so confident using something so natural in my hair! Thanks for sharing <3
