Homemade hair mist for daily moisture

Moisturizing is an essential part of curly hair regime. Moisture is responsible for the elasticity of hair which prevents hair breakage when hair is stretched during daily grooming activities like combing, hair styling etc. Lack of moisture also causes frizz. So, it is a good idea to keep your hair well moisturized all the time using conditioners, leave-ins and deep conditioning treatments or masks. But even after using these, you sometime feel that your hair still need some quick spritz to replenish the moisture back in your hair. Here are a few homemade hair sprays that can be handy for a quick fix and refresh your hair.

You can add the vitamin E oil in any of the spritz mentioned below. You can buy vitamin E capsule from any chemist. Prick the capsule with a needle and squeeze the oil and add in the spritz. Also adjust the quantity of oil depending upon you hair. If your hair feels oily then you can use less oil or skip it. You can mix and match all these ingredients depending on what your hair likes. If your hair does not respond to glycerin or aloe vera juice well then skip that.

Pour all the ingredients in a spray bottle. Shake the bottle well before use. You can make this in small quantity by adjusting the amount of ingredients for a single use. Store the leftover in the refrigerator.

You can buy aloe vera juice from any chemist. But make sure it does not contain sugar and has 99% aloe juice. Meaning pure aloe juice that is preserved using preservatives.

1.  Leave-in spritz
– 2 part water
– 1 part silicone free conditioner

2. Moisture mist

You can replace aloe juice with aloe gel as well. Increase or decrease oil quantity according to your hair.
– 1 part water
– 1 part aloe vera juice
– 1/2 part glycerin
– 1 tbsp of oil like jojoba or argan oil
– 1 tbsp of silicone free conditioner
– 1-2 drops essential oil of  your choice (optional)

3. Lavender mist (as per curly girl handbook)

4. Aloe vera juice spritz

    Can we use dese sprays anytime? And how do u manage hair between to washes? Isn’t it hard to not comb at all between two washes? And abt co washing, is it safe to use conditioner on scalp? And normal(silicone free) conditioner will do the job or dere are any other conditioner for co washing?

      You can use these sprays anytime depending upon if you need to re-moirusturze your hair in bewteen washes. I refresh my hair usign different proudcts. First I wet my hair with water and then a leave-in conditioner. Someitmes I follow it up with fruit of earth aloe vera gel or may be sometimes with little amount of oil on hair strands. Non-wash days are not as good as wash days but still it looks very much presentable and little frizz are always part of being curly haired. People do apply silicone free conditioner on scalp to wash hair. But I would recommend you to use a lighter conditioner like enliven conditioner for co-wash. Heavy conditioner sometimes leaves residue on scalp. We do have some products that are meant for co-washing like As I am coconut wash on amazon but all of them are US products and quite expensive to buy in India.

        Hey, thanx for ur reply. I want to know that how should I appky homemade hair mask for deep conditioning?? Should i use a brush? And should I apply it on my scalp too?

          No need to use the brush. you Just apply it section by section. Homemade masks you can apply on scalp too like methi etc. Some masks you can apply before shampoo and some after shampoo. If you are using too much oil, egg or anything that leaves smell or weighed your hair down then use the mask before shampoo. If you are using store bought masks then apply them only on hair and after the shampoo.
