Give Your Hair the Daily Hydration It Needs with One of these 5 DIY Hair Moisturizing Mists.

I absolutely love making my own hair care products at home because it allows the freedom to use exactly what I want to my hair. There are tons of different hair mists, styling refreshers and hair moisturizing sprays on the shelves that contain ingredients that your natural hair may not necessarily like or need.

A DIY hair mist can contain all the ingredients you want on your hair and none that you don’t and be a custom concoction that’s just perfect for your hair.

If you’re struggling with dry or brittle hair, vegetable glycerin is one of my favorite all-natural moisturizers, this natural humectant will help your natural hair to retain moisture and will also attract moisture from the surrounding atmosphere.

Apricot and Sesame oils are lighter oils that won’t weigh your hair down or looking “greasy”.

Vegetable glycerin (1 tsp)

Apricot Oil (1 tbsp)

Vitamin E Oil (2 tsp)

Sesame Oil (2 tsp)


Start with 1/4 cup of distilled water then add the following ingredients to your spray bottle, shake and enjoy!


This will last in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

The Neem and Black Seed oils will encourage hair growth, strengthen the hair follicle, relieve itchy scalp and prevent thinning hair. Both oils have been said to work very well, however, their natural odor is less than pleasant to some.

Peppermint oil can be added help to cut the fragrance and to stimulate the scalp for hair growth.
