Pro Tips 

  • Although this detangler contains natural preservatives such as essential oils, water-based products have a relatively short shelf life; hence the need to refrigerate. Add between 1-2 Tbsp of witch hazel to extend shelf life for another few days and store in the refrigerator. Please note that the alcohol content in witch hazel is not a good choice for brittle or damaged hair.
  • You can also use a mild preservative such as Optiphen to extend the shelf life of this product even further.  Be sure to follow usage rates listed on the packaging.
