Quirky Tip of the Day 2

It’s time for another edition of Quirky Tip of the Day!! {Imagine that said in a cheesy game show hosts voice}  But in all seriousness people, this is an excellent tip. 

How to make your own Leave in conditioner!!  I use this daily on my girls hair.  We have long thick hair in this family and no matter what I do, we play the tangle game.  I promise you things go easier if you use this on those tangles. 

I’m also all about use what you have and since I cannot always run to the store in the morning before school {when we realize we have run out} this recipe is a must have!!


I use a spray bottle this size.  You can find them everywhere.  If not in the hair aisle, check the cleaning supplies or garden areas.  These size bottles are so much better.  They hold a lot so you are not refilling all the time and they spray well.  It gives better easier coverage.

Making this is VERY simple.  All you do is put some of your regular conditioner into the bottle.  For this size bottle, I use 1/4- 1/2 cup.  I don’t really measure, I just have gotten used to how much {approximately} it takes. 

The next step is important.  You must use HOT water.  If you don’t, the conditioner won’t mix with the water and you will have cold water and lumps of conditioner.  You need HOT water for it to mix together. 

Fill up the bottle with HOT water but leave about 2 inches from the top empty.  You need this empty space to be able to shake the mixture up. 

And that’s all folks!!  If you find you like more conditioner in your mixture you can use more but be careful.  If you put too much the hair will become saturated.  Like when you haven’t rinsed enough after a shower.  But feel free to play around with it.  This is a total lifesaver in a family with 3 little girls. 

So there you have it.  Leave in conditioner.  Simple. Easy. Works.

    great tip!!! My hair is thin and curly and always in knots. I started to buy kids detangler cause I don't want too much grease. I like your idea better. Do you still condition their hair when you wash it? or can you do with out? Thanks!
