Hi - I thought I remembered reading somewhere that someone put - I think - water & oil? - which I thought don't mix? - in a spray bottle for frizz? And/or maybe aloe gel? What are your favorite recipes for spraying on your hair?

Thanks!

Maybe they shake it before spraying?
I'll be watching this thread, as I'm curious too!

I use distilled water. Sometimes I mix an EO in there; I have to shake the bottle before using it. Othertimes I'll add a little leave in conditioner. Again, I shake before using it.

I just started this and it has been doing wonders for my hair! My spritz bottle contains 4 oz of distilled water, two squirts of Aloe vera, a few squirts of hair oil (I used the stuff from Walmart in the ethnic hair section... comes in a orange bottle... can't remember the name) and a squirt of suave conditioner. I shake it up before each use.

I use it before I put my hair up in buns and before I braid it for bed. I have felt a really big difference in my hair... I also end up with great bun waves! :) I hope this helps.

Is this what you meant?

Kimberlily's defrizz spray:



In a 4oz mister, mix the following:

2 tbsp aloe gel
1 tsp jojoba
1 tsp glycerin (you can leave it out if you don't have any)
essential oils of choice

Add distilled water until full, then shake. Spray can be used as a detangler, and it encourages wonderful waves especially when used for damp bunning. Tap water can be used, but distilled water is better since it will keep longer. I have hard water, so I never use tap water.

I don't just use it on my hair. Here are some other uses:

* If you omit the essential oils, it is a wonderful eye makeup remover. Just spritz on a cotton pad and swipe away your makeup.
* Keep it in the fridge in the summer for a refreshing moisturizing spritz after coming in from the sun.
* Spritz on your legs and use it for shaving if you're in a rush and have no time to shower.

Thanks guys, these are great! I just acquired a little spray bottle & I'm psyched to try some of these recipes! Keep 'em coming if anyone else has a magic combination. :eyebrows::)

I was curious about this one.... you use distilled water alone sometimes? Or you always add something to it? I thought plain water was more likely to *cause* frizz.... like on a rainy day or when I take a shower with my hair up, trying to keep it dry but it still gets misted. I get super frizzy when I do that. Maybe the fact that it's distilled makes a difference?

There is a giant thread about Kimberliliy's spray, if you do a search. I made a variation with aloe, jojoba, water, and lavender e.o. I didn't have any glycerin. I shake it before I use it. I makes my hair smell great, and helps smooth it out. I put it in when my hair is down and then just run my fingers through my hair to smooth it out. I also use it before bunning or braiding to help my hair go more smoothly into place. I have to be careful not to use too much though, or it makes my hair get greasy faster.
