My Daily Spritz

by Evenes Ruth Mafupa

I have referred to “my daily spritz” in some of my posts so I decided to do another post to let you in on the composition of this love portion for my hair. So here it is.

The Oils

  • 1 tsp (5ml) of Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp (5ml) Castor Oil
  • 1 tsp (5ml) Coconut Oil (except in winter when coconut oil solidifies)
  • 10 drops Jojoba Oil
  • 4 drops of Tea Tree Oil
  • 4 drops of Rosemary Oil

I add water (filtered or distilled) to a 150ml spray bottle until it’s about 70% full then I add all the oils to it. I shake the bottle vigorously so that the oils and water mix well. I use this spritz on my hair in the mornings and evenings to maintain moisture. In the mornings, sometimes I do not spray my hair at all if I want more stretched hair for the day because spritzing it tends to give my hair a lot of shrinkage. But I make sure that in the evening, I have to or my hair will be so dry and unmanageable the next morning. I sometimes also add glycerine to the mix for that extra moisture especially in winter although glycerine is not my all time favourite because of its sticky nature. I live in Johannesburg South Africa and our winters are normally very dry so glycerine tends to help.

So yah! There is my spritz. It is working well for me so far. I believe it can be twicked some more though depending on the needs of my hair in the future.

Hope this will help someone.

Hey Ruth, I don’t know if you’ve updated your spritz since last year. I have a similar one with aloe vera juice, my word it really does wonders. You should try it out in your next Spritzer 🙂

I also started using Aloe vera juice recently and I am loving it. I only wanted to use it during the winter months that’s the reason I never updated my year round spritz. I’m not sure though how my hair likes it but my scalp is sure loving it hey. May as well make it a staple. Thanks Luyanda for sharing.

Hie Ruth

Where can I find the oils here in RSa? I have just cut my relaxed hair to go the natural way. My natural hair has just started growing beneath the relaxed hair, I want to maintain my hair with no hassles. I use a wide toothed comb & only shampoo & condition it once a week. I currently find it painful to comb and it makes me miss the ‘relaxed hair ‘ days kkkkk Since I went short & natural last year Nov I have seen a good change in my hair. My hairline has drastically improved!!! I would love to keep it natural. I didn’t have a regime but I think that’s what I need. I know a spritz will make a difference but dont know where to begin to find the oils.
