3 DIY Refresher Sprays You Can Use to Refresh Your Curls Daily

spray-bottleRecipe 1 – Aloe and Lavender Refresher

What you will need:

1/4 cup Aloe Vera Juice or Gel

1/2 cup Distilled water

6-8 drops of lavender oil

Add all of these ingredients to your spray bottle and shake what your momma gave you. Aloe Vera juice or gel is an amazing moisturizer and a perfectly pH balanced product that enhances your curls and makes them naturally shiny. You can choose to use more Aloe than water if you like, I have even sprayed just the juice on my curls from time to time.

Lavender oil not only smells amazing, but the oil is great for your scalp. As you spray your hair, you will moisturize your hair, and have a little something that nurtures your scalp as well.


Recipe 2 – Shea and Coconut moisturizer

What you will need:

1/2 cup distilled water

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 table spoon raw shea butter

1 tablespoon coconut milk

This one might be a bit more involved especially in colder weather when the Shea butter might be a bit harder. You can use shea oil if you like.

Coconut milk is a very healthy protein great for your strands and super moisturizing. I will admit that this recipe while it sounds amazing and is great for your hair, I am not a fan of coconut milk used in this manner.

It is a great recipe, and a must share for those of you who like trying something a bit different daily! I would advise that you either make the recipe as you go along or keep your refresher spray in the fridge which is a great thing either way.

Recipe 3 – Oil, water and conditioner

What you will need:

1/2 cup of distilled water

A few squirts of conditioner

3 table spoons of olive oil

This recipe is probably the easiest to make of the 3, and is probably the most popular among naturals. I recommend using a cheap conditioner that you probably would not use for co washing, and use enough to make your recipe a little thicker.

The conditioner I use is the V05 Strawberry conditioner, because it smells amazing and does a great job at refreshing my curls.

You can choose any conditioner or oil that you like; V05 is super duper cheap, and you can find a few scents to choose from.

When you use natural ingredients in your refresher spray, like coconut milk or aloe vera juice, do not forget to leave the mixture in the fridge to keep your ingredients fresh.

Your hair will love the cold mixture anyway, so do not hesitate to spray away; do not allow it to adapt room temperature.
