I don’t know about you but I love anything that smells good. I have an arsenal of body lotions, creams, butters, oils, salts, bath bombs, perfume, body sprays and even linen sprays. I enjoy changing up the scent to compliment my mood and sometimes even my outfits, and one thing I’m all about is great smelling hair. During my relaxed days I’d spray which every perfume that I was wearing onto my hair; that way, each time the wind blew I had great smelling hair in my face (haha don’t judge). But, as we all know the alcohol in body sprays and perfumes are very drying to our hair and shouldn’t be used if you trying to maintain moisture content.
For a while what I’ve been doing is just scenting the accessories that I wear in my hair. I wear mostly cloth flowers so they hold the sprays and perfumes pretty well, but I wanted a bit more. Whole Foods sells this rose-water and for the size of the bottle isn’t worth the price to me. Also considering how much water I spray in my hair each morning I’d be running back and forth to the store more often than I want. Giving that I like spending my money on things non hair related things I decided to make my own floral water and in this case lavender on the cheap. I took some of my essential oils such as geranium, lavender, and rosemary (I know not floral) and made a water spray from each. Simply added one to two drops of the oil in the spray bottle and fill with water. I used standard tap but I bet aloe water would work great as well.
The results in the feel of my hair rendered no change, but the goal of beautifully scented hair was achieved and lasted throughout the day.
This DIY method allows you to adjust the strength of the scent to suit your personal preference and its super economical. My 10ml bottle of essential oil cost me somewhere around $4.00 giving me the freedom to purchase several oils for many custom oil blends.
