How To: DIY Essential Oil Hair Mist
We all know spraying perfume on your hair is bad. The alcohol in your perfume makes your hair die a very slow and very painful death. It will leave your beautiful locks quench for thirst & turn into a sahara-esque crown of straws. You do not want this. Please don’t do this do your hair.
But I get it… You still want lovely scented locks. No worries, I got you covered! Instead of regular perfume, use an awesome homemade essential oil hair mist! This DIY is supersimple, budgetproof & -most importantly- not damaging to your hair. Check how to make your own natural hair perfume here!
– Ylang Ylang essential oil (or an essential oil of your choice)
– spray bottle
This is probably one of the easiest DIY you’ll ever set your eyes upon. Simply fill your spray bottle with some water and add a couple of drops of essential oil. Choosing an essential oil for your natural hair perfume is totally up to you! I personally love Ylang Ylang as an hair mist scent as it’s so fresh but also sweet. Ylang Ylang essential oil is also beneficial for treating dry & thinning hair. If you ask me, his makes Ylang Ylang an excellent choice for a natural hair mist!
Essential Oil Perfumes: Don’t be afraid to experiment!
With Ylang Ylang as your natural hair perfume base you can also start experimenting with adding other essential oils… If you’re looking for something a little more fresh & Summer-y maybe add a few drops of Bergamot and Lemon! Comforting & relaxing? A little bit of Lavender might do the trick. Want a bit more spice? Patchouli might work for you! For some grounding effects a little Frankincense or Sandalwood works wonders too. The possibilities are endless… Start blending your favourite essential oils to get your own unique natural hair perfume!
Naturally as you spritz your DIY hair mist your hair will get a little wet from the water. I find this helps me with styling. If you find this annoying simply make the essential oil hair perfume more concentrated. This way you’ll be able to use less water.
Normally perfume consists of top, middle and base notes which complete the perfume. However, I use my natural hair perfume as a addition to my normal perfume. I don’t want to overpower my actual perfume. That’s why my hair mist recipe doesn’t have all the notes generally required of a solid perfume, but you’re of course more than welcome to experiment with this yourself!
