*KurlyBella’s Marshmallow and Burdock Detangler
In a pot water of just starting to simmer/low boil add:
•15- 20 dried organic hibiscus flowers
•simmer the flowers for about 5 minutes making sure your water does not boil
•remove from heat and remove flowers
•add 3 tablespoons organic dried marshmallow root
•and 3 tablespoons organic dried burdock root and stir them into the hot water
•cover your conditioner with plastic wrap and let the herbs infuse for 15 minutes.

Use this mixture on freshly washed and clean hair and do not rinse out. Comb through your hair and style as usual.
