DIY Strengthening, Smoothing, and Highlighting Hair Mist
Recipe type: BodyCare
A Leave-in conditioning, strengthening, and highlighting nourishing mist/spritz for dry hair.
  • 250 ml spray bottle (use glass for best results.)
  • 1 cup brewed nettle tea
  • 1 cup strongly brewed chamomile tea
  • 2 tbsp blended aloe vera or gel
  • 5 drops ylang ylang
  1. Bring the water to boil.
  2. Add the dried or fresh herbs, lower the heat and simmer covered for 5 mins. Turn off the heat and let the herbs cool. Strain. You can also use bagged tea (I double bag for extra strength).
  3. Combine the strained & cool herbal mixture with the essential oils & aloe vera in the spray bottle, and shake thoroughly to combine.
  4. NOTE: if using fresh aloe, you'll need to combine in a blender or mini food processor and blend til smooth so it won't have chunks. I snip aloe leaves from my plant.
  5. I store this in the refrigerator.
