Correct and complete hair care includes several stages. In particular, immediately after shampooing, a special leave-in cosmetic product should be applied to clean and damp hair, the active ingredients of which will take care of the hair throughout the day.
Usually, such products are in the form of a spray, making them very easy and convenient to spray along the entire length of the hair, from roots to ends.
Modern cosmetics stores offer a huge range of caring sprays, the action of which is aimed at facilitating combing, thermal protection of curls, and so on. Unfortunately, such funds in most cases are quite expensive, and given the need for daily use, one bottle of such a spray is enough for a very short time.
In addition, some sprays contain harsh chemicals that can adversely affect our hair.
To prevent this from happening, you can make a good hair spray with your own hands, consisting exclusively of decoctions of medicinal plants, vitamins and other useful and natural ingredients. This is not difficult at all, and our recipes will definitely help you with this.
How to make a hair growth spray at home?
Folk cosmetology offers several recipes for preparing a product at once, the regular use of which activates hair follicles and accelerates the growth of curls.
The most effective of them are rightfully considered the following:
- squeeze the juice from a whole lemon and take 8 tablespoons of the resulting liquid. Dilute this juice with 2 cups of distilled water and add 2 tablespoons of vodka to it. If you use pure alcohol instead of vodka, you must first dilute it with water, taking into account the ratio of 1: 3. Also, if you wish, you can drop 4-5 drops of essential aromas, for example, rosemary and ylang-ylang, into the future spray. Shake the prepared product well and refrigerate for about a day. After 24 hours, the spray can be used, applying daily to clean and damp strands;
- Prepare a decoction of any medicinal plant, such as sage, chamomile, calendula, or a collection of these herbs. In the absence of these components, you can use ordinary mineral water. Take 50 ml of such a liquid and add to it the contents of one ampoule of any vitamin from group B, which can be found in every pharmacy, as well as one whole ampoule of liquid aloe preparation. To enhance hair growth, it is recommended to add a little niacin to this composition, however, you should be very careful with this component, since it can provoke severe allergic reactions.
To eliminate the likelihood of allergies, before preparing such a spray, it is necessary to conduct a skin sensitivity test at home. To do this, apply a couple of drops of "nicotine" to the area of sensitive skin behind the ear or on the bend of the elbow and observe the reaction during the day.
If the skin in this place does not swell and redden, you can use this tool without fear. If you feel pain or discomfort, it is better to refuse the use of nicotinic acid. Under such circumstances, it is better to take pepper tincture instead.
To add a pleasant scent to the spray, drip 1-2 drops of rosemary, thyme, sage, ylang-ylang, fir or pine essential product and use it like any other similar product:
Finally, the third recipe for making a hair growth spray is as follows: combine medicinal plants such as calendula, nettle, burdock, mint, chamomile, St. John's wort and burdock in equal proportions. Take about a gram of the collection of these herbs, add a cinnamon stick and 3 pieces of cardamom to it. Pour these ingredients with 300 ml of hot water. Wrap the container with a warm cloth and let the broth brew well. When this liquid has cooled down, add a bottle of ginseng tincture with alcohol to it and stir
Close the jar with the miracle cure and put it in the refrigerator for storage.
Immediately before use, pour the required amount of the composition into a spray bottle and add the contents of one ampoule of nicotinic acid there.
Just as in the previous recipe, before using it, a skin sensitivity test should be carried out, and, if necessary, replaced with pepper tincture.
Apply the prepared spray to clean, damp hair every time you wash, and the growth rate of your curls will pleasantly surprise you!
Making a firming hair spray
Such a tool in a short time will give your curls a natural shine and make them healthy and well-groomed. Take 2 tablespoons of dried chamomile flowers and 500 ml of water and prepare a medicinal decoction. When the broth is ready, cool and strain, then add 10 drops of any essential scent and 40 drops of flaxseed oil.
Shake all the ingredients very well and place in the refrigerator for storage. The firming spray, unlike the previous ones, is best applied to clean and dry strands, and this can be done up to 4 times a day.
The problem of tangled strands and tangles is familiar to many girls. Often, while combing, the fair sex experience severe pain that becomes impossible to tolerate. To prevent this from happening, prepare with your own hands a wonderful tool that effectively facilitates combing curls and makes them silky.
In a small saucepan, combine a teaspoon each of herbs such as chamomile, mint, string, nettle, and green tea and pour over a glass of water.
Place the pot on the stove, bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. Cool the prepared broth to room temperature, strain and drip 3-4 drops of any essential product of your own taste, for example, bergamot or rosemary. This liquid should be applied immediately after washing on clean and damp hair.
Thermal spray recipe
Most girls use hairdressing tools such as hair dryers, curling irons, iron, curling iron and so on on a daily basis. All of them affect our curls through a very high temperature, which destroys the hair structure and, in general, has a detrimental effect on them.
To protect your hair from such effects, before using a hair dryer and other similar devices, you should apply a special thermal protective agent to the hair strands. You can prepare it yourself at home according to the following recipe: squeeze the juice from one whole lemon.
Add a mug of water, stir this liquid, place on the stove and boil until about half of the original volume remains. After that, let the composition cool and pour it into a spray bottle. Before any heat treatment, including blow-drying your hair, always apply this product to your hair.
How to prepare a moisturizing spray for dry hair
This spray is ideal for those with excessively dry curls and scalp.
With regular use, it very well moisturizes and nourishes hair along its entire length, as well as saturates it with vitality and energy.
To prepare such a product, take 3 tablespoons of mineral water, 2 tablespoons of natural lemon juice, mix well and add 10 drops of citrus fruit essential products - lemon, mandarin, bergamot, grapefruit or orange to this liquid.
Such a composition must be prepared in limited quantities, since it can only be stored in the refrigerator for no more than 7 days. It is recommended to use it every day.
Careful care of our hair is the key to their beauty and health. Use not only expensive hairdressing products, but also effective folk remedies, and your hairstyle will always be perfect.
