If you are looking for a natural DIY leave in conditioner to help detangle matted hair then you have found it. This is my homemade hair detangler with essential oils recipe I use to help keep my girls hair from getting matted.
This is just one of the steps I use to help brush out her knotted hair. If the hair is really matted be sure to check out my How To Detangle Matted Hair Painlessly post. It’s a sure way to get the knots out as painlessly as possible. I know this because I have a very sensory child and this has been the only method to date that has worked for us.
Essential Oil Hair Detangler Spray Recipe
- 30ml spray bottle
- 1 pump of dōTERRA Salon Essentials smoothing conditioner (about 2 tablespoons)

This leave in conditioner detangler spray makes it easier to remove knots in the hair. In addition, adding the essential oils helps protect the hair and supports its growth. Therefore making it shinier and stronger. For extremely matted hair use this hair washing technique first followed by the detangler spray.
