Frizz Away Leave-In Spray
We all have bad hair days and I am definitely no exception! To be honest, most days I wear my hair in a ponytail......or headband when I'm feeling those 90's vibes. On the days that I do try to wear it down, it takes some commitment. I have naturally wavy hair. Not the fun curly hair and not even the "wake up with straight hair" look. If I blow dry my hair (which I rarely do), I look like something out of Lion King. When I straighten my hair, I have to put it on one of the highest settings in order for it to straighten out and it still take a while because my hair is so thick. No matter how many hair products I try, my hair always seems to be unmanageable. I kept thinking that I was perhaps doing something wrong for all these years. Do I not know how to take care of my own hair?
I quickly realized; however, I can't be the only person having these issues, because no matter where you are, any hair product aisle you walk down, you will see multiple "anti-frizz" shampoos, conditioners and sprays. Unfortunately, most of those contain chemicals and other ingredients that I prefer not to wear so I set out to find something that I could make with no chemical ingredients and something that, simply put, worked!
I didn't want to make a shampoo or conditioner mainly because I had so much of it still left and I absolutely hate for anything to go to waste. I thought about creams and serums but I was missing some of the ingredients that I would need. Finally, I decided to make a leave in spray.
What you'll need:
Lemon essential oil
Lavender essential oil
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
Add all ingredients to your glass spray bottle in the following measurements:
2 tsp AVC
1/2 tsp coconut oil
3 1/2 tsp rosewater
1/2 tsp Jojoba oil
4 drops lemon essential oil
4 drops lavender essential oil
Add just a few drops of vegetable glycerin for extra moisture and then fill up the rest of the bottle with water.
Apply to wet/damp hair.
Shake before each use to ensure all ingredients are mixed well since there are no added chemicals to keep them from being separated.
