Beauty Buzz: Scented shine spray for your locks!


I don't know about you, but the winter air just kills my hair! It seems that no matter how many treatments/serums/protective products I use daily, my hair still ends up looking lifeless and frizzy.

Don't fret, my friends. I've come up with a simple recipe that will not only make your hair shiny and fragrant but will also help to prevent static/frizz during cold temperatures and low humidity weather.

Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup rosemary, lavender, citrus or your favorite essential oil.
  • 1/8 cup castor oil
  • 1/8 cup coconut or jojoba oil

Instructions:
  • Combined oil in spray bottle and slowly shake to mix.
  • Mist onto damp hair before styling and as needed throughout the day.

Information:
  • The essential oil in this recipe is what provides the scent. Be sure to choose something light and fresh that you can live with for the day.
  • Recommended for normal to dry hair.
  • Use as desired.
  • Store in plastic spray bottle up to 30 days.

  1. I love this post and would really like to try this recipe. I was wondering if the coconut oil you use is in the solid form? I use it for cooking and as diaper cream sometimes but I have never seen it in liquid form..until its warmed up anyhow. Jojoba oil is really expensive right now for some reason. Ohh and can you share where you buy your essential oils. Thanks for another great useful post.

  2. Hi Toni! I just asked Mo to jump over here to see your comment, but as for the oils, you can totally sub in almond or coconut oil for the jojaba. You could also ratio down the ingredients to make a smaller batch.

  3. The coconut oil does go back to a solid after mixing... But, with the castor oil, it still sprays.
    Hoping this is the answer to my winter hair problems :)
