My daughter, Miss O’s hair is out of control.  However, I don’t want to cut it, so I’m on a mission to find something that will help manage it.

Thanks to the wonderful world of Pinterest there are no shortage of recipes available, but I really didn’t want to waste time experimenting.  Luckily I stumbled on a post in which a fellow blogger (no longer active) had gone through the trouble for me!  I decided to go straight to the water and conditioner combo and add a couple of my go-to ingredients.


I filled the squirt bottles about 2/3 of the way up with warm water.  (I have no idea if warm or cold matters, but I’d just done dishes so the water came out hot.)  I added a couple teaspoons of apple cider vinegar because I, too, am obsessed with vinegar.  Then I added a generous squeeze of my favorite conditioner and about 10 drops of tea tree oil.  The tea tree oil is good for keeping lice away – a must have for kids in day care!

It smells heavenly and it makes combing Miss O’s hair much less stressful for both of us.
