DIY Spray Mist for 2nd Day Curls

This homemade spray uses healing essential oils to revive your 2nd day curls.

For many curly haired women, you wash your hair, you dutifully go through each step of your styling routine, and then, if you're lucky, you have a good curly hair day.

Day two and day three aren't quite so easy.

You have less control, your curls may have flattened overnight when you slept on them or you may have developed a halo of frizz throughout the day.

What's a curly girl to do? Refresh her curls, that's what. We're lucky to have plenty of choice among hair product lines formulated just for us now (5 years ago that wasn't the case!) but if you prefer to go au naturale, we have just the recipe for you.

This do-it-yourself mixture will revive your curls, as well as providing the healing benefits of essential oils.

What You'll Need
  • water
  • jojoba oil
  • tea tree oil
  • lavender essential oil
  • peppermint essential oil
  1. Mix 1/2 cup of water 1/4 teaspoon jojoba oil, two drops of tea tree oil, and one drop each of lavender and peppermint essential oils.
  2. Shake to combine (you'll have to re-shake it before each use, because the jojoba oil tends to float).
  3. Mist all over your hair.

So are the essential oils really "essential" to the functionality/effectiveness of this spray as a curl refresher? I'm allergic to tea tree and lavender scents. Any non-floral oils I could try instead?
