My younger daughter Kaylee has super fine, very wavy that tangles so easily! Couple that with a super sensitive head and hair brushing time is absolutely no fun in our house.

So it’s really important that we use a good hair detangler with her. She also has a WET Brush, which was recommended by a hairstylist friend – it’s the only brush she’ll use now.

Instead of buying hair detangler month after month, learn how to make your own in this easy beauty tutorial. It features ylang ylang, lavender and rosemary essential oils, which are all great oils for hair.

If you’re more the type to purchase things, you can try this pre-made hair detangler.
