A spray leave in conditioner is an essential product for every coily and curly girl to have, especially if you are wearing your hair in a protective style...
To maximise the benefits of protective styling you have to add moisture to your hair. As my hair is type 4 and is prone to dryness I use a spray conditioner on my hair once a day to keep my hair hydrated and soft.
I love creating my own haircare products from natural ingredients as I can tailor the mixture depending on the needs of my hair at that time.
I am currently using my own DIY leave-in spray conditioner to nourish my hair and scalp whilst my hair is in box braids. It is packed with ingredients that help with locking in the moisture and also for growth promotion, there is no dry and crusty hair over here. My goal over the next six months is to grow my hair longer and DIY products like my leave in spray conditioner help to do so.
The mixture includes two essential oils which both help to reduce hair dryness, these are rosemary and lavender. I just love using different essential oils in my hair products, as they have so many benefits for the hair. Rosemary is also great for hair growth.
I absolutely love avocado oil and my 4c hair cannot get enough of it, I don’t know why I never used it in the past. The oil has the right amount of heaviness for my 4c texture to seal in the moisture. Avocado oil contains fatty acids which repair dry and damaged hair. Better still to obtain even more benefits from an avocado, you could simply eat one as it contains biotin.
The leave-in spray conditioner works by targeting the outer layer of the hair to protect it from breakage. Ultimately leading to the desired outcome of length retention.
The last ingredients is a leave-in conditioner. You can use your favourite one or whatever you have in your cupboard to add to the mixture.
