DIY Heat Protectant Spray
Time to keep it real. I have the craziest hair that does not like to be tamed and because of this, I have to always use some sort of heat source in order to be presentable enough to leave the house. I was spending a lot of money on all of the fancy-schmancy hair products that were full of nothing but empty promises and harsh chemicals that were damaging my hair.
I finally learned my lesson and realized there’s no need to waste money on expensive salon heat protective sprays. Instead, I started making my own with ingredients I actually already had. It was super easy to do and you can use ingredients that are all natural and won’t damage your hair. Not to mention it’s so much cheaper!
This is what you will need:
- A small spray bottle
- Medicine dropper
- 1 tablespoon Coconut oil (melted)
- Hair conditioner of your choice
- 250ml distilled water
- Almond oil (argan oil or grapeseed)
Pour most of the distilled water into the spray bottle (about 200ml) leaving about 2 inches of space from the top of the bottle.
Add coconut oil and 4 drops of the Almond oil to spray bottle using the medicine dropper.
Squirt a quarter sized drop of your favorite conditioner into your palm and the place into the spray bottle.
Add remaining water and shake well. It’s completely normal to have a few suds or lather. The mixture will settle and turn into a milky liquid. You can even add a little bit of your favorite hairspray, but that is completely optional.
Use this DIY heat protectant spray right before you blow-dry, curl or flatiron your hair to protect it from heat damage. Be sure to keep the spray bottle about 6 inches or so away from your hair and mist evenly. Use your hands to work spray evenly through your hair. Style as desired!
