Does this product exist? Natural hair detangler in a spray bottle.

You can make your own with a little natural conditioner in a spray bottle with distilled water, or you can put some drops of jojoba oil or coconut oil and/or lavender essential oil in a bottle with distilled water and use that. Shake vigorously before use. It's best to use the spray on the hair from the ears down or else it flattens your hair from the scalp (too much oil from your scalp anyway).

Get a wide toothed comb - they look like enormous combs; from the brush and comb section of any store. These are detangling combs. When combing hair, start from the bottom of your hair (or your child's hair), and work your way up to the scalp, NOT from scalp down. You will get less tangles and less pain.

Cali Baby also makes a nice one if you need something ready-made.

My daughter and I both have really fine, long hair, and we just use rose hydrosol (from Mountain Rose Herbs) in a spray bottle, with a wide-toothed wooden comb. Works great and smells heavenly!

aubrey organics makes a detangler but I actually prefer using conditioner too. My DD and I both have fine hair so all I need to do is put a couple drops in my hand and add some water and apply it with my fingers (kind of comb through) - then comb out with a wide tooth comb like Spastica mentioned.

That rose hydrosol sounds lovely - I may have to try some of that!

I love this spray. It makes my hair manageable.

Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!
