DIY Hair Detangler with Coconut Oil

Water, jojoba oil/coconut oil and Lavender essential oil*, that’s it! Those are the only three NATURAL ingredients you will find in this homemade detangling spray.

Not only is it simple, quick and easy to make, it’s also so much better for your hair than the store bought products that are full of chemicals I can’t even pronounce!

Even better, it works! I mist it on my girls’ hair after evening baths and again in the morning before school. No more tangles and battling bedhead!

How to Make Your DIY Detangling Spray

Supplies You Will Need:

Ingredients for diy hair detangler with coconut oil

  • 4 oz. glass spray bottle – When working with essential oils, glass containers are usually best as they do not absorb the oils or leech harmful products. Prefer one with a trigger sprayer? Try this one. (If you have a bigger bottle, you can always double the recipe).
  • 1 Tbs. 100% pure jojoba oil OR coconut oil – Jojoba oil has many wonderful uses! It’s ideal for hydrating skin and hair because it closely mimics the natural oils our bodies produce. Coconut oil is also amazing for hair and scalp health so you can choose which one you want to use!
  • 10-15 drops Lavender essential oil* – Lavender oil is widely known for it’s relaxing and calming properties. It is a gentle oil and safe to use on kids and babies when properly diluted.
  • Measuring spoons
  • Small funnel

Adding coconut oil to DIY detangling spray

Add Your Oils:

Start by making sure your glass bottle is clean and empty. Using your measuring spoon and funnel, add 1 Tbs. jojoba oil or coconut oil to the bottle.

Next, add 10-15 drops of our favorite brand of lavender essential oil*.

Add Water:

Fill the bottle the rest of the way full with water, then place the lid back on and gently shake it to mix it up.

Note: Some people prefer to use distilled water when working with essential oils but for the sake of simplicity and the fact that we aren’t rubbing it directly on the skin, I choose to just use tap water for this recipe.

How to Use Your Brand New DIY Detangling Spray

Lightly mist your homemade detangling spray on wet or dry hair and slowly comb through working in small sections from the bottom up. Wide tooth combs & brushes work best, especially on wet hair. They help prevent tugging and pulling so you don’t end up with more tangles or broken hair strands.

If you come across a stubborn tangle, you can spot spray to help work it through. Each time you use the spray , just give it a quick shake and you’re good to go!

Important note: Be careful about which essential oils you use! Many are filled with synthetics and are not safe for use on your skin or internally.
