Let's Talk Summer Hair Care

Young LivingMeaghan White

We will be living in the sun this summer break. Beach days, pool days, park days, lake days. And so on and so forth. We’ll literally just be living our best summer life.

But with all the summer fun, hairs get really dry, frizzy and hard to brush. Here are a couple DIY’s to help with that summer hair.

DIY Dry Hair Spritz

If your hair is dull or naturally dry, spritz this recipe over your hair throughout the day to keep it from looking dry, particularly if you are planning a day in the sun.


-1 cup distilled water

-10 drops Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood

-10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil

-8 drops Cedarwood Essential Oil

-8 drops Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

-1 tsp. V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex

Add all ingredients in a 12-oz. spray bottle. Shake well before spritzing over hair, avoiding the roots.

DIY Detangler Spray

From a full day at the fair or the beach, summer activities can tangle up your hair. Smooth out knots with this hair detangler!


-1/2 cup Lavender Mint Conditioner (or other Young Living conditioner)

-1 1/8 cup hot (not boiling) distilled water

-3 drops Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood

-3 drops Cedarwood

-3 drops Frankincense

Put conditioner into a 12-oz. spray bottle. Add distilled water and shake. Add essential oils and shake again. To use, spray on dry or damp hair, focusing on the ends.
