DIY Moisturizing Spray For Locs And Natural Hair

DIY moisturizing spray for locs


Since I loc’d my hair last year November, creamy moisturizers have been a thing of the past. Anything creamy is the devil to locs because it causes buildup and can even grow mold in the loc (yuck!). So liquid everything has been my choice for hair products.

I have been experimenting with natural ingredients to build a moisturizer that WORKS. I wanted a product that left my hair moist and not just for a hot second. I wanted it seal in the moisture and offer shine to my locs, my scalp and my loose natural roots (a few inches). I apply this moisturizing spray to my entire locs and squeeze it into my loc. for my scalp (when retwist not fresh) I spray liberally to my scalp and give my self a soothing scalp massage. My hair and locs love it. This formula would work wonders for loose natural hair as well (it's not just for locs).

Below is what I use in my spray and I love it. In a 8oz bottle i add the following:

  • 1/2 bottle rose water
  • Mixture of your favorite base oils or you can select one: (Castor oil, Olive oil. Argan)
  • 3-4 drops of essential oils:
    • Tea tree
    • Rosemary
    • Lemongrass

THAT’S IT!!!!  Shake well and give your hair a treat.

My Loc Journey Begins. 2Week Old Starter Locs

I have been a bad girl! i have neglected the blog and have not been keeping up with updating it for a long time (a whole year). But my life was just crazy this pass year. i am really trying to work in a routine. i have so much to update you on. I will be playing with uploading more videos as well.

......Anyway, so if you have been following me on my instagram then you would know by now that I loc'd my hair and have made a few videos. However nothing have been shared on the blog ---which I am working on correcting. So I am taking today to share all videos I have made this year and update you with what has been going on with Shelly.


So, yes, I decided to loc my hair Nov 27, 2016 and it has been a great new journey. I used the two strand twist method to start my locs. I installed 114 locs in my hair and really wanted to wake up with great locs, but I was introduced to the guy called Patience.  I am however excited to be on this journey.

In the video below, I recorded a quick view of what my hair looked like after 2weeks loc'd.

I hope you enjoy this video:
