Hibiscus and Rosewater Moisturizing Spray for Locs

Hibiscus and Rosewater Moisturizing Spray for Locs

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.
