If you have unusually dry hair, it does make a difference in adding as much hydration as possible. A leave-conditioner is important for those dry and hot summer months that brings along the humidity. You want to use some water-based ingredients to help the hydration process along.

Your dry hair can be caused by many reasons throughout the day, chemicals, sun damage, along with everyday wear and tear from styling that leaves your it looking flat, and loosing its natural, healthy look. When summer comes the dry air and humidity are in full force; your hair starts to dry up and losing moisture. Creating a water based leave-in conditioner spray to cool off the hair comes with a powerful hydrating benefit. Vegetable Glycerin retains moisture to dry hair, helps with growing your hair, help with breakage and much more. Adding it to your leave-in along with other ingredients can help you keep your hair healthy. Using a natural conditioner along with a few other ingredients today we can make an extra nourishing, hydrating conditioner for dry, dull hair. Directions: 1. Pour the water, glycerin, aloe Vera gel, and conditioner into a bowl and mix thoroughly with a hand mixer on low speed (or another mixer you have handy). 2. Add four drops of Rosemary Essential Oil and mix it in with the rest of your ingredients for about 1 minute on the same low speed. 3. Now pour your mix into your storage bottle for storage and a tight top to store away in your fridge away from any food products. (I preferred to use a plastic bag as well covering my bottle to make sure it is kept completely away from any chance of the spray getting on any part of the fridge). 4. Now you have your leave-in conditioner ready for use on your dry hair or freshly wash hair, just take your spray bottle out of the fridge when you are prepared to use it and spray hair. All you do is set your spray bottle on light spray setting and damp hair, making sure to the hair is evenly covered on top and underneath the hair. Best practice is to leave it in the fridge to keep it fresh and cool. Always remember to give your bottle a little shake when you take it out of the refrigerator to make sure all the ingredients are evenly mixed. Keep the container in a fresh and dark place until you're ready to use it. Note: If you are pregnant, it is advised to be cautious with essential oils if you are using it at all, if you are pregnant staying away from essential oils is a better practice.
