I really wanted to write a review on a spray moisturizer today because my own homemade spray moisturizers are going so horribly wrong! I have to say I started doing homemade moisturizers because 1. They seem easy to make (just some water and moisturizing agents right? i.e. jojoba oil, rosemary oil, etc) 2. I go through spray moisturizers really really fast, so I thought I should start making my own to save money (especially since most of the spray moisturizers I like are only accessible online). Unfortunately these homemade concoctions are not achieving the desired effects similar to Karen’s Body Beautiful Hair Blossom Moisture Mist
I really like Karen’s Body Beautiful Hair Blossom Moisture Mist because it really softens and hydrates the hair - like what any good moisturizer should do! But believe me, as a constant sufferer of dry hair, I have tried a wide array of spray moisturizers and most never really penetrate my hair that way.
I usually use it every other day when I wake up in the morning. I used to spray on moisturizers at night before I went to sleep but I quickly realized the product would end up seeping into my pillow than my into my hair. I wish the spray top was the kind that has a lever to make it easier to spray around the head (I think next time I'm just gonna transfer the product to my own CVS style lever spray bottle). Unsurprisingly, if you are really trying to get a moderate amount of spray on hair that is thick and out (like not styled into twists or anything) the spray will deplete rather fast - in about 3-4 weeks for me depending on the hairstyle I have during the time.
Other than that, I decided to use Karen’s Body Beautiful Hair Blossom Moisture Mist in between failed experiments of my own homemade moisturizers. So far my homemade infusions have been a cocktail of distilled water, rosemary oil, Just Natural Organic Care Dry Hair Lotion, GNC Aloe Vera Gel, and Vitamin E oil. The results have been the hair feels great the first couple of hours then becomes dry by the end of the day. I am thinking I will use Aloe Vera juice instead of the gel and use a different moisturizing product and maybe add glycerin or jojoba oil as well.
