Things You'll Need

  • Spray bottle

  • 1 tsp aloe vera gel

  • 2 drops glycerin

  • 2 drops essential oil

  • 15 drops grapefruit seed extract

  • 8 oz distilled water


Avoid spraying the detangler into your dog's eyes.


Brush your dog's hair often to keep the tangles under control.

Long-haired dogs often get tangles in their hair.

Dogs with long hair often get tangles even with regular brushing, but having a hair detangler helps them brush out the hair without having to cut any of it off. A natural hair detangler made at home with some inexpensive, easy-to-find ingredients helps during brushing time to smooth out the hair and make it soft. A natural hair detangler, made with natural ingredients, is safe to use on pet and human hair.
