If your hair needs Moisture…
The ultimate everyday mist, this is an all-in-one detangler and hair softener.
Yep, Shake it all up and store in a refrigerator for up to 5 days. Aloe vera is a natural healer, which means hydration and protection. The oils seal in the moisture of your cuticles. If your hair is prone to severe dryness, add a drop of your favorite conditioner into the mix for maximum moisture.
If your hair needs Refreshing…
Perfect for a midday pick-me-up or a post-workout refresher, this mist will give your natural hair that just-washed feeling.
Shake it all up and store in a refrigerator for up to 5 days. Green tea is full of antioxidants, which makes it your hair health best friend. You can use regular water in this, but we recommend distilled water for that pure, refreshing, “yasss” effect.
Did you know that, tea tree oil’s anti-fungal properties relieve the scalp of irritation and itch, while the peppermint oil stimulates your roots with a feel-good tingly sensation?
If your hair needs some Shine…
Floral-scented and vitamin-rich, this one’s going to give your tresses that vibrant, sexy shine you thought only existed in commercials (for real sis!).
Shake it up and keep in a cool area for up to 5 days. The rosewater and aloe vera combo reduce frizz and ups hydration. Almond oil contains superpower ingredients like omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E, which nourishes from the inside, resulting in glossy locks. Also, olive oil is rich in antioxidants and helps combat hair loss.
Soothing Herbal Water Mist
The base of these mixtures consists of olive oil and shea butter. They are heavy moisturizers that are ideal for thick or coarse hair textures. Rosemary and thyme are essential oils that are packed with antiseptic properties. They have been found to reduce dandruff, soothe the inflamed scalp, and balance estrogen in the body, which promotes natural hair growth.

Ylang-Ylang Anti-Breakage Formula
To promote softness, reduce breakage, and combat frizz try the Ylang-Ylang Anti-Breakage Formula. This solution prevents hair loss and promotes growth.
Honey has been known to soothe split ends, promote healthy roots, and restore damaged hair shafts. Ylang-ylang is an essential oil derived from leaves of the Cananga tree. It is known for its antibacterial qualities and promoting hair growth.
