Got a dry scalp and now you’re trying to ditch the itch? Then you’ve got to try this homemade moisturizing hair spritzer.  Not only can you make this in a snap, but it’s also a great way to revive your curls. Let’s not forget that it’s ALL natural, too.

I am addicted to this spritzer! I use it as a daily moisturizer. Oh and did I mention that it contains one of my all time favorite ingredients? COCONUT OIL! Coconut oil can penetrate the hair shaft, which means your hair retains moisture longer. Also, it won’t leave behind any residue or film so you can kiss build up goodbye!

Here’s the ingredients and a quick tutorial for you. Take a look!


  • 1 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Aloe Vera Juice
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil

Super easy, right? Now, go turn that dry and itchy scalp into a well moisturized one.

    • Afrophire

      That’s what I like to hear! Thanks sis :)

  • GoodLooknOut

    I need to re up on my coconut oil. This is so easy too! Sharing!!!!

  • The Lovely Photog

    Love it! I haven’t tried this particular combination but its definitely good to know! :) Thanks sis!

    • Afrophire

      Thanks Lesha! I love trying different mixtures and this one is definitely a favorite.

  • Nature’s Pulchritude

    I use a similar mix but add EVOO or Grapeseed Oil. Instant re-moisturizer!

    • Afrophire

      Yes! EVOO is another favorite of mine. I have yet to try grape seed oil. It’s on my list to try along with avocado oil.

  • Mylah Stanton

    This is great! I’m going to try this for my daughter’s hair.

  • Kari

    This post was right on time. After washing my hair and letting it air dry I could see how dry my scalp was. Trying this out to see if it helps.

    • Afrophire

      Great! You can also apply your favorite oil directly onto your and scalp following the spritzer depending on how dry your scalp is. Please let me know if you notice any improvements sis! :)

  • isleofazure

    Thanks girl, gotta try it :-)

  • stylesbycoconutu

    Love it! I’m going to be doing one soon also; but, Coconut oil is by far one of my favorite oils.

    • Cherese Agee

      Mine, too! I love the many uses that coconut oil offers and it smells like a dream to me.

  • tikilon

    This a super simple recipe! I use rose water in my mix. I have EVCO to use for EVERYTHING…cooking, skin, hair, coffee (yes, I put in my coffee for weight loss!), and hair.

    • Cherese Agee

      Hey Tiki! I’ve read that rose water is a great moisturizer, but I’ve never used it before. I’m going to have to give it a try. I keep coconut oil stocked… I don’t know what I’d do without it lol.

      • tikilon

        Yes, please give rose water a try. I just ran out of my cooking coconut oil and had to use the one for my coffee. Yes, I really have diff ones. LOL You know I’m OCD.

  • Ericka

    I put a little conditioner in my mixture. Great for detangling!

    • Cherese Agee

      Hey Ericka! What’s your favorite conditioner to add?

    Reblogged this on 50Gray&Natural.

  • natuurlik

    how long can you keep the mixture before it goes bad?

    • Cherese Agee

      The mixture would probably keep for up to 2-3 weeks.
