Cool Besides H20, what is everyone putting in their water bottles?

Hello folks, just wanted to know what everyone's using if anything at all. Just bought some glycerin, haven't tried it yet but wanted to know what's out there to use, especially since re-vamping ones hair with water is such an integral part of the natural hair care regimen.

Thanks,
Gracias,
Merci beaucoup

P.S. Hubby is laughing that I dare even ask such a question. He responds while chuckling "what if someone just posts WATER."

The funny thing is my answer is WATER, lol. I've tried a little condish, oil and veggie gylcerin in varying combinations before but I always go back to the tried an true H20.

Haha! I really read this as water in a water bottle to drink! I was like, why is she asking this on a hair board and I was trying very hard to connect it to hair.
I guess something else needs connecting...

I always use Distilled water. I have one with EO's and FO's added, one with Veg Glycerin and another with FOTE.

A little conditioner and some Vatica or Bhringraj oil. Shake before each use.

Aloe vera juice, water and castor oil..I am leaving the humectants like glycerin, honey and honeyquat alone for the moment...they are drawing in too much moisture for me.

I have water and just a few drops of glycerine in it (it's a small bottle ).

It's perfect for me to help me with 2:nd hair day frizz.

I use water, a teaspoon of rice brain oil (for shine), glycerine, and a bit of KBB Super Silky. Makes a thick spray (sort of reminds me of Blended Beauty's silk shake).

just wondering if you meant Vegetable Glycerin or Glycerin? Veg Glyc. is an emollient but also a humectant and doesn't dry me out. There's a video and recipe here http://www.squidoo.com/Vegetable-Gly...-Hair-and-Skin that shows a gal making a Veg Glyc. spray with EO added.
