DIY Moisturizing Spray For Locs And Natural Hair
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
THAT’S IT!!!! Shake well and give your hair a treat.
