I use it on my hair by spraying it on damp, towel dried hair, then combing it in with a wide tooth comb and letting my hair air dry if I have time and keep my hair curly. If not, I will blow dry my hair till it is mostly dry, then let it air dry the rest of the way, then I use a large bore curling iron to straighten my hair. I also prefer to spray my daughter's hair when it is wet, but use it on her dry hair as well.
I was able to find dried marshmallow root at my local health food store and bought some jojoba oil there as well. I already had two, small spray bottles that I had saved to re-purpose for a project like this. Following the recipe was very easy, just make sure you simmer and not boil the marshmallow root/water mixture. Also, it is very important to use distilled water so that water deposits will not clog up your spray nozzle.
I chose Young Living Lavender essential oil for my detangler spray.
Here is a list of possible oils you can choose from...
Many of the oils on the list are also beneficial in helping hair loss and/or dandruff problems.
If you use store bought hair detanglers, please make this and give it a try, I truly believe your hair, scalp and body (no nasty chemicals!) will thank you.
