Protective style maintenance
Just because we are giving our hair a rest during protective styles it doesn’t mean we forget all about it! Nope… we still need to care for our hair underneath and one of those ways is by Moisturizing our hair…
I normally moisturize every second day using my DIY moisturizing spritz. I have tried other braid spray but I find that my hair flourished with my own moisturizing spritz.
DIY Moisturizing spritz recipe
I am going to share my recipe with you…I had on Journeytobeauthair and since all that is lost I will gladly share it again. So here goes
[su_list icon=”icon: cut” icon_color=”#9e3c79″]
- 1x Empty spray bottle
- Moisturizer or Leave in Conditioner (I use African Pride Moisturizing lotion)
- Oils (I use EVOO, Avo oil and JBCO)
Step 1 : Half fill spray bottle with water
Step 2 : Add you a generous amount of Moisturizer/ Leave in conditioner to the water.
Step 3: Add your oils of choice to your mixture
Step 4: Shake well.
And that is my moisturizing spritz that I used to moisturize my hair during a protective style. You will find that the liquids separate when left unattended to long so shake well before every use.
