I just have to share with you my latest magical natural moisturizer discovery. I like to experiment with different hair products but I also make my own home remedies.
Easy homemade natural moisturizer for soft & shiny hair.
Let the story begin!
It all started three weeks ago.
I washed my hair but I didn’t have the time (and the mood) to style it at all.
[That also happens sometimes when I know that I don’t have to go outside, because I want to give my hair a rest from styling it].
But what made it worse is that I didn’t even apply any hair care product, such as hair oil or a hair cream to lock the moisture. The next morning I paid the toll. Something came up and I had to go out (screams and panic). I wanted to straighten my hair to look neat, but it was so dry and frizzy that I just couldn’t touch it with the hot styling tool.
I would hurt my hair badly.
So the only solution was to shampoo it again. But no time to do it (and those of you who have thick and long hair I am sure you can feel me!). I had to think of a simple natural moisturizer that I could spray on my dry hair to help me manage it without further delay.
And my wish was granted!
This homemade moisturizer (my genie in a bottle) is so simple to make and yet so amazingly effective. It has become my favorite spray (hmm…until my next discovery!).
It makes my hair so soft and shiny! I love it!
Even if I don’t use a styling tool afterwards, my hair looks like Julia Roberts’s in her latest Lancôme commercial! What caught my eye (besides the exquisite aesthetics of the commercial itself) was Julia’s hair. It looks so shiny and soft and it has a natural movement which symbolizes simplicity, elegance and freedom. Her hair definately stands out in this sparkling black and white scenery.
(My hair is naturally wavy, so please don’t expect your long hair to look like Julia’s in the photo above if you have naturally straight or curly hair…just by using this hair moisturizer, ok? )
This super natural hair product also makes straightening the hair a piece of cake!
My simple, gentle & powerful natural moisturizer,
for your eyes only.
- 30 ml distilled water
- 10 ml rose water
- 10-12 drops jojoba oil
- Put all the ingredients in a spray bottle.
- Shake the mixture well every time you spray it on your dry hair, from a distance of 15-20 cm, until it’s damp (no water dripping).
- Comb your hair carefully, starting from your ends (use a wide tooth comb).
- Let your hair dry naturally. It’s so much better than using a blow dryer.
- When your hair dries, you can proceed with the styling.
So easy, right? I told you it was simple.
You can easily find distilled water and rose water in the grocery store. For natural jojoba oil ask your pharmacist or you can buy jojoba oil from reputable online stores like Mountain Rose Herbs.
You could also use 2-3 drops of essential oil of your liking to add a special scent in the blend. I have used lavender essential oil or if you can afford it you can use rose essential oil to enhance the rose water aroma.
Pure rose oil (Bulgarian Rose Oil is probably the most expensive essential oil of all) is ideal for keeping hair hydrated. It helps moisturizing damaged brittle hair and especially coarse or curly hair.
If you want to buy essential oils and you have no idea where to begin, I found an interesting article about the 20 best essential oil brands online.
Ιf you add in the mixture an essential oil like lavender or rose essential oil, this natural moisturizer could also be suitable as a scalp moisturizer. However, I avoid it because jojoba oil is quite waxy and I don’t want my roots to get greasy. One spray on the scalp from a distance is more than enough for me. It depends on your hair type and scalp condition.
After all, here I don’t use it as a scalp remedy but as a hair moisturizer. Of course, I could use it on my scalp as a treatment before washing my hair.
If you decide to give it a try, I would like you to come back and tell me what you think. Would you like to share with me the best moisturizer you have ever used on your hair?
To You With Love.
