As you may have already discovered, I love mixing up new batches of hair growth preparations and trying new concoctions on both my and my daughter’s hair. Some of my favorite ingredients are nettle tea, rosemary oil and lavender oil, as each has amazing properties to combat dryness and breakage in hair, and promote hair growth. I’m constantly looking for new ways to combine them to maximize their hair growth power.
This is a home made version of a commercial moisturizing product which shall remain nameless, tweaked to suit my hair growth needs and the ingredients my hair has shown a preference for. As stated previously, vegetable glycerine and can be very beneficial for attracting moisture to your hair, but its one of those things that your hair either really loves or really hates. Keeping that in mind, use as much or as little as YOUR hair can tolerate without becoming sticky. If so, add more water to your mixture to dilute the glycerine further.
Use a large (12 oz.) spray bottle for this one. Into the bottle pour
- 3/4 cup of distilled water
- 3/4 cup fresh brewed nettle tea (or water)
- 1 Tablespoon vegetable glycerin
- 3 tsp. lavender oil
- 8 drops rosemary oil
- 5 drops vitamin E oil
Shake bottle to thoroughly mix ingredients together. Spray on hair to point of dampness daily or as needed. You can seal with your favorite coating/sealing oil after spraying such as jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, castor oil or shea butter. The vitamin E acts as a preservative, allowing this amazing hair growth and moisturizing mixture to last with refrigeration for up to three weeks.
