DIY Coconut Water Moisturizing Leave-In Spray

Before I share the recipe for my DIY Coconut Water Moisturizing Leave-In Spray, here are some important things you should know.  You can also read about the Benefits of Coconut Water for Your Hair here

Read the label.  Depending on the brand of coconut water there may or may not be additional ingredients such as flavors, sugar, and preservatives. Choose pure coconut water. Preservatives are fine, if you’re okay with that.

Make a small amount. I make enough that last for about 3-4 days to ensure it doesn’t become rancid.  Make sure you keep it refrigerated. Again, there is a chance the DIY spray can go bad. Keep it refrigerated to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Keep refrigerated. Shake well before each use. Now, for a simple Coconut Water Moisturizing Spritz Recipe.

1/4 cup of Coconut Water

2 tsp Aloe Vera Juice

2 tsp jojoba oil

Directions:

Spray on freshly shampooed and conditioned hair and style as normal. For daily use spray on hair and scalp and style as normal.

    Can I use coconut milk instead of coconut water? My can’s ingredients are coconut milk, then water. Do you think the coconut milk will work the same as the coconut water? Or, do you think I should still cut it with more water?

      Hi Tasha, My biggest concern with coconut milk is that it’s highly perishable and very rich. Even diluted I don’t think you would want to leave it in your hair. It could go bad.

    Hello – are there any tips on how to keep your twist out from looking frizzy and dry? My nightly regimen is to spray with water + leave-in-conditioner mixture then add a curl defining creame (JCarter) and two-strand twist. In the AM when uncoiling the twists, I notice a lot of shrinkage, and dryness.

    Please advise what would help the twist out look moisturized and not so frizzy.

    Thanks in advanced.

      I spritz my hair with water, apply a little oil (especially to the ends), and then my creamy leave-in before retwisting in a few loose twists

        try grapefruit seed extract as a natural preservative, or liposomal vit C,
        sag can also be used a natural preservative for natural based personal care products
        Hope this helps

    I see that many are asking about preservatives, well if you add 1% of Optiphen (a perservative) you wont have to keep it refrigerated you can find Optiphen on Bramble Berry.com also you can add BTMs-50 in 5% amount to emulsify the misxture you won’t need to shake and the oil will mix with the coconut water of course you will have to place the coconut water on the stove and heat it until it is warm enough to melt the btms. BTW BTMS is a conditioning wax that is drived from rapeseed oil.

    Hello! No comment but question: if i don’t have jojoba oil, is it possible to use an other oil like olive oil or almond oil? Please don’t forget the answer.
