DIY Hair Moisturizing Spray

DIY Hair Moisturizing Spray

Due to my hair being very dry, I moisturize my hair daily. When moisturizing your hair, one of the main things you need is water. It is the most natural form of moisturizer you can possibly find and it's the first step of my moisturizing process. Water is important in order for the rest of the products you apply to penetrate your hair rather than just sit on top. Here are the details on how to create the moisturizing spray I use.

What you will need:
- A spray bottle
- Distilled water
- Pure Glycerin
- Rosemary essential oil {optional}

Fill the spray bottle with distilled water, add 1 tablespoons of glycerin and 20 drops of rosemary essential oil. Shake the bottle to mix up the ingredients, and it is ready to use.

You can use just water in a spray bottle if you have normal or oily hair. But if you have dry hair like mine, then I suggest you add glycerin. The glycerin helps the hair absorb moisture from the air, leaving it a lot more moisturized than when you use just water. Be careful with glycerin though as it can remove colour from the hair so if you use semi-permanent hair dyes, you might want to stay away from it or use it with caution. I add rosemary to my moisturizing spray because it adds shine, fights irritation, flakiness and dandruff, stimulates hair growth and thickens hair.

I use this spray whenever I am styling my hair after washing or cowashing, as well as everyday to refresh my hair and add moisture. I always seal with an oil in order to keep the moisture in.

How do you moisturize your hair?

Review: Maple Holistics Argan Conditioner

Maple Holistics Argan Oil Conditioner Review
Argan Oil All Natural Hair Conditioner

Haircare is one of my top priorities. I am constantly looking for new styles or how best to moisturize my hair and the rest. Hair conditioner is a product I use like my life depends on it. I use it to cowash, I apply it daily and I deep condition as well. So whenever given the opportunity, I am always interested in finding out how a certain conditioner works for my hair. When I received the Dead Sea Mud Mask, I also got the Maple Holistics Argan Oil Conditioner* and have been testing it out.

The Maple Holistics Argan Conditioner is an all natural product containing Aloe vera, Argan oil, Shea Butter, Pomegranate, Green tea, Jojoba oil and other ingredients. It is scent free, non-toxic and non-sensitizing, which makes it great for adults, children and even pets. The conditioner is a white creamy texture which has moderate slip when applied to the hair. I usually use this as a quick conditioner. I co-wash my hair, drain some of the excess water, apply this conditioner and leave it in for about 5 minutes. When I rinse it out, it leaves my hair feeling very soft and hydrated. After using this product I usually feel like I don't even need to apply leave-in conditioner before putting my hair in braids. 

I really like that the product is all natural because then I know what exactly is going into my hair. It does a great job at moisturizing the hair which is what my hair needs, so I would definitely recommend you give this product a try. It retails at $11.95 for 200ml making it very affordable, but unfortunately it is not yet available with international shipping. I will try to keep you updated once it is.

Have you tried any all natural hair conditioners?
