DIY Moisturizing Leave-in Spray for Natural Hair

Going down the natural hair aisle at the beauty supply store can sometimes give us a real headache when we see the prices. Does natural hair products need to be this expensive? Does it have to be this hard to find a good moisturizing leave-in spray without breaking my pocket? The answer is no. You can make your own DIY moisturizing leave-in spray for your natural hair with ingredients that you probably already have in your house. 

One day I was gifted a natural hair moisturizing mist and I loved it but could not commit to paying the big bucks. I then noticed that every ingredient listed on the bottle was easily accessible. So, being the experimental person that I am, I decided to try and make my own. However, I failed miserably. 

I tried many measurement variations until I felt it was just right. It's been over a year now since I have formulated this measurement and have been using it consistently. I have also made this moisturizing spray for friends and family and they still love it and ask for more. This can be used on both natural hair and relax hair. 

Ingredients for the DIY Moisturizing Leave-in Spray:

Aloe Vera Juice (1/2 cup)
Aloe Vera is a very potent plant that have so many great benefits for our hair.

You can use aloe vera gel if that is what you have, however I find that aloe Vera juice is easier to mix with other ingredients. Aloe vera leaves the hair moisturized and also smoothes and closes the hair's cuticle. This results in moisture retention. Aloe vera juice on its own work for some women's hair, but for some women it can be too potent for their hair. This is why it is best to mix aloe vera juice with oils and/or water to get the best out of it.

Water (1/2 cup)
Water is a great moisturizer, as we all know. However, it is not enough to moisturize our hair and retain moisture. You need an oil or butter to assist the water to effectively moisturize our hair and retain the moisture. 

Honey (3 table spoons)
Honey is a great humectant and anti-inflammatory product. Most of all, honey offers moisture to our hair and scalp and helps to retain moisture as well. Try a honey treatment one day, you will be amazed. 

Coconut Oil (3 table spoons)
Coconut oil is seen as the Holy Grail oil for natural girls and with good reason. It is one of the few oils that can penetrate the hair shaft and moisturize the hair instead of simply sitting on top of the hair. It has many great properties that our hair will benefit from. 

Jamaican Black Castor Oil (1 table spoon)
This castor is a great addition to your DIY moisturizing leave-in spray because it helps to thicken the strands, repair thinning hair and scalp and also boast great anti-inflammatory properties. 

Tea Tree Oil (3 drops)
Tea tree oil is a miracle in a bottle. A few drops of this oil can treat any scalp conditions you may have because of its awesome anti fungal and anti inflammatory properties. It also stimulates the scalp which increase blood circulation under the scalp which in turn increase hair growth. I did say its a miracle in a bottle right? Lol! Love this stuff. 

This has been one of my success mixes and I wanted to share it with you guys. Have you ever tried to make your own DIY Moisturizing Spray?

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs Hi Loves, I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation. In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs. Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
