A Spray Bottle is a Natural Hair Necessity. 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 in between washes. Its great for 2nd-day hair too.
What do you put in your spray bottle?
The spray bottle is used to rehydrate dull curls. It allows you to shape, moisturize, and stretch hair without soaking or re-wetting the whole head. You can more evenly distribute your moisturize when applying with a spray bottle. Its perfect for moisturizing and re-twisting the hair daily before bed. You can also use your spray bottle in styling your hair.
Depending on the balm, oil, 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. You can stretch your more expensive oils by adding them to your water bottle. Just add a little almond, vitamin E and Jojoboa oil. Shake and mist in hair before styling to help add and seal in moisture.
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.
I recommend 3/4 water (primary/main ingredient) to 1/4 or less of your additional ingredients whether its oil, aloe vera juice, conditioner or any other secondary ingredients. Too much of your secondary ingredients can weigh your hair down, increase your drying time and cause product build up.
Make sure you shake you bottle before each use to get all that good stuff on your hair.
