DIY Aloe Vera Leave-in/Refresh Spray

Aloe vera is one of the best moisturizers for hair making this DIY spray the perfect leave in or refreshing spray.

I SWEAR by this refreshing spray. I use it every single day to hydrate my hair because it has made my life SO much easier!

I realized pretty early on in my journey that science doesn’t lie. Because our hair is curly our natural oils can’t make their way down from the scalp all the way to the ends of their hair the way straight hair can do.

Curls are naturally much drier because the natural oils of your scalp can’t make their way down the spirals of your hair in time to moisturize it. Which leads to frizz and even breakage.

That is why hydration is so important for our hair. After learning this fact, I went a bit overboard and started adding too much product to my hair. The result was extremely weighed down curls. What’s the point of definition if you have no volume to show for it?

I soon figured out we are NEVER supposed to apply product to our roots. Trust me, it doesn’t help halo frizz.

Instead just using this spray to saturate your hair every single day. Aloe Vera is a great moisturizer for hair so half aloe and half water is just the dream team of hair moisturizers. The essential oil you add is totally up to you! I suggest lavender because of its moisturizing properties.

I noticed after I started incorporating this spray into my routine I no longer needed conditioner AND gel on refresh days. To be super honest, I only apply gel one day a week! Since Aloe Vera is also a natural sealant it quenches frizz and helps promote clumping!

I love this brand because it is 100% free of preservatives and is available on amazon

Another benefit of this spray is overtime aloe helps increase hair growth! Aloe also overtime also helps hair retain more moisture! Seriously! You can’t lose when you opt from natural DIY recipes instead of insanely expensive refreshing sprays like Deva Curl Mist-er Right spray. Do you know the Mist-er Right is essentially just lavender and water?! You are paying over $20 bucks for something that costs you less than half to make on your own! Not to mention, way more added benefits!

Give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments!
