1 1/2 cups water

1 tbsp of conditioner

2 tbsp Argan Oil

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

10-12 drops of essential oils


Step One

Add conditioner, Argan oil, and ACV to a spray bottle.

Step Two

Add warm water to the bottle, stir vigorously. Make sure the consistency of the mixture isn't too thick—you'll want it rather liquid-y to properly distribute through the spray bottle on application.

Step Three

Add amount of essential oils as directed, or customize as you go to the scent you desire. We love this kit by Aura Cacia to have a couple of options—especially hair-positive powerhouses like lavender and peppermint.

Application Tips

Beauty by Earth detangling hair brush

Holding the spray bottle a good distance away from your head, spritz damp or dry hair a few times. Use a quality detangling brush, such as Beauty by Earth's Detangling Brush, to gently brush out your hair—starting from the bottom and gradually working your way up.
