Since locing my hair, I’ve been keeping my little starter locs moisturized by spraying my hair with rosewater (and rosewater + glycerin when the humidity in my area is high. Using rosewater has been great – it nourishes my hair with no build up – but I’ve wanted to mix up a moisturizing spray with more “oooh.” Here’s what I mixed up last night.
With my love of all things Ayurvedic, I decided to spice up my DIY moisturizing spray by adding hibiscus.
Benenfits of hibiscus
- Rich in vitamin C and amino acids
- Adds natural shine to hair
- Balances scalp’s pH
- Strengthens roots
- Helps reduce dandruff
- Smoothes scalp irritations
- Helps reduce shedding
- Stimulate hair growth
I started off by adding powdered hibiscus to hot, distilled water. Next I strained the hibiscus liquid through a cheesecloth. My mixture was initially a little too thick so I ended up adding more hot water to thin it out.
Once strained, I poured the mixture into my glass amber bottle. I’ve been trying to do my part and use less plastic whenever possible so I was beyond happy to find 16 oz amber spray bottles on Amazon. I bought the ones linked here and it comes as a two pack.
I followed up by adding rosewater + glycerin (I use Heritage brand), coconut oil, sweet almond oil, peppermint oil, and vitamin E oil into the bottle as well. That’s it! An easy-peasy “upgrade” to my rosewater spray.
Naturally, I wasted NO time in moisturizing my hair as soon as I finished mixing up my moisturizing spray. My hair felt so good and smelled so refreshing because of the peppermint oil.
What’s In My Spray?
- Coconut Oil
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Peppermint Oil
- Vitamin E Oil
