Tangled hair and tired of it? Have you tried all of the fancy spritzes and sprays out there? Ready to make your own and customize the scent? Well, we have the perfect herbal recipe for you! When applied to wet hair, the mucilaginous quality of organic marshmallow root mixed with aloe vera gel will coat, soften, and help smooth out those knots, making it much easier to brush through those otherwise difficult to manage manes. This mixture will also help flatten out and tame a bed head, giving you perfect, soft, shiny and ready-to-go hair within just minutes of rolling out of dreamland.
