Hair Serum - Anti-Frizz Detangler Spray

So, like most women I have a love/hate relationship with my hair. The truth is I've never really cared enough to learn how to tame it so it's almost always just been allowed to do its own thing. I love it because it's naturally wavy, long, and a pretty auburn color in the right lighting. But it also likes to frizz A LOT. Ever since becoming a mother I've just been throwing it up in ponytails and by the end of the day it's a frizzy mess that only vaguely resembles a ponytail. The frizz has gotten especially bad these past few months to the point where it became an embarrassing nuisance even for a stay at home, too tired to care most of the time mom like me. I suspected it may even be damaged it was so bad. Plus, now that my daughter's hair is getting longer and harder to tame I knew a gentle detangler would be invaluable.

Once again, essential oils to the rescue! Here is the recipe for a quick, easy and incredibly healthy, gentle, and beneficial hair serum:

1 2oz. amber glass spray bottle

5 drops Stress Away

5 drops Lavender

3 drops Geranium

2 drops Cedarwood

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/2 tsp. fractionated coconut oil

10 drops Vitamin E Oil

Fill the rest of the way with Aloe Vera Witch Hazel

It feels and smells wonderful! Of course, Stress Away is the best smelling oil blend known to man. I also used it because it contains both Lavender and Cedarwood, which are excellent for hair health and growth. Thicker, longer hair in a yummy smelling bottle! Geranium, Lavender, and Cedarwood are nourishing for both skin and hair. I use them for anything and everything. Plus, they are all generally regarded as safe for children because they are so gentle. 

Both Lavender and Stress Away are included in Young Living's incredibly valued Premium Starter Kit.
