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 you wish. lavender is good for a calming effect, whereas rosemary can be used to stimulate hair growth

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?
