No, not that Tangled.

My sweet little Buttercup got out of the shower this morning with a snarly mess instead of her usual smooth, wavy long hair. I knew her mama would be in a hurry to get out of the house, and I also knew it would take time and effort and probably lots of tears to get all the tangles out of Buttercup's hair.

I remembered seeing a recipe somewhere for homemade detangler solution, and went on the hunt for it. Sure enough, it was right on my blog list: One Good Thing by Jillee.

I love her blog. She makes all kinds of cool things that cost practically nothing with stuff I might actually already have on hand. Her post today is about making popcorn in the microwave with regular popcorn and a bowl. No more "microwave popcorn" with unpronounceable ingredients wrapped in toxic packaging that will likely kill you one day.

You should definitely check Jillee's cool site.

Anyway, this morning we had everything we needed to make some homemade detangling spray for Buttercup. It works great! All you'll need is a little bit of regular ol' hair conditioner, some tap water, and a spray bottle.

Walmart charges more than $2 for a bottle of detangler and I'll tell you a secret - it's mostly water!
