If you do not have a spray bottle, get one! It is one of the best investments you can make. It sounds so simple. I know. Spritzing the hair with water is the best way to refresh those curls. Its great for 2nd-day hair too.
What do you put in your spray bottle?
The spray bottle is used to rehydrate dull curls. Ideal for bed hair because misting allows you to shape, moisturize, and stretch hair without soaking or re wetting the whole head. Depending on the balm or emollient agent used in addition to your main component water, you can create your own special blend of moisturizing/protecting hair mist for little money.
In addition to aqua you can use aloe vera juice, 100% vegetable glycerin, natural oils and/or your favorite conditioner.
Spritzing is good for most natural styles including afros, curly puffs, braid/twist outs and etc. Its almost essential in the hot and humid summer months. The mist assist in smoothing fly aways too for that perfect afro puff.
Specific amounts of each ingredient depends on 1.) the size of the bottle 2.) your hair needs 3.) desired style and 4.) your additional ingredients or combination of ingredients. Generally only a small amount is needed of moisturizing component. If you add too much of the secondary ingredient it can weigh your hair down and increase your drying time.
