hair & scalp rejuvenating spray

the colder the weather gets, the more love my hair seems to need. does this happen to you, too?

here are my 3 favorite cold weather hair rejuvenating sprays. they all soothe and moisturize your scalp (read: battle dry scalp and dandruff), while moisturizing, balancing pH, adding shine, softening, and reviving the length of your hair.

best of all – depending on the EOs you use, it can boost your spray’s power by adding aromatherapy benefits and/or hair growth benefits.

NEEDED:

  • 2 ounce glass spray bottle – i purchased mine through amazon. there are lots of choices there! you can also find them in your local supplement and/or health food store usually.

HOW-TO (shelf-stable):

place the following ingredients in your bottle, shake, and use! super easy!

  • 1.5 ounces of your favorite floral hydrosol or a combo of them (i love rose water from inflora botanica. there’s also a cucumber hydrosol from mountain rose herbs – the silica will work wonders for your hair and scalp!)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons vinegar (i advise acv for the raw enzymes, but it may tint your hair with a very subtle red sheen after prolonged use). start with 1 teaspoon and see how you like the smell first!
  • 5-10 drops of any EOs

please do consult your healthcare professional and local certified herbalist and aromatherapist to ensure any herbs and EOs used are okay for you (no contraindications for any ailments). 

HOW-TO (immediate use or refrigeration needed):

version 1 – for most hair types needing a little extra love

  • 1.25 ounces of your favorite floral hydrosols
  • 2 teaspoons pure aloe juice (i personally prefer the brand lily of the desert)
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 5-10 drops of any EOs you wish

version 2 – heavier formula, best suited for dry/curly hair

  • 1.25 ounces of your favorite floral hydrosols
  • 1 teaspoon coconut milk (zero additives)
  • 1 teaspoons pure aloe juice
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 5-10 drops of any EOs you wish

BONUS: add a tiny amount of powdered hibiscus for a pink tinted spray, as well an added shine boost. or you can add a tiny bit of spirulina for a green tint, with an added bonus of encouraging hair growth when used on the scalp (& taken internally).  what other colors with added health benefits can you think of?

  1. I water only wash and do (lily of the desert) aloe Vera deep conditioning treatments once a week and have been noticing my scalp getting dry from the cold weather. This will be nice to try. The only thing is, how would I use it? Is it leave in or do you spray it on in the shower and let it sit before rinsing it?
