When can you use this coconut hair spray?
As a hair moisturizer to tame frizz:
All you need to spray it randomly over your hair before you brush it. This spray will help tame frizz and flyaways, while also making the hair look smooth and soft acting like a moisturizer.
As a heat protectant spray:
Before blow drying your hair or using a curling wand or flat iron, using a heat protectant spray should become a practice, in order to help protect the hair from the heat. Therefore, spritz this coconut spray randomly all over your hair before using any sort of heat on your hair, just how you’d use any other heat protectant spray.
As a pre-shampoo conditioner:
If you want your hair to feel smooth, luscious and soft after you’ve washed it, then there is nothing better than using a pre-shampoo conditioner like this coconut hair spray. Spray this all over your hair and scalp. Gently massage it in using circular motions and then leave it on for half an hour before you wash your hair.
As a post-hair wash hair detangler:
If you find that your hair gets very tangled once it has been washed and you often use commercial hair serums to detangle your hair, then maybe you should think of using this all-natural coconut hair spray as your detangling serum. You need to spritz this all over your damp hair (not on the roots, as it can weigh down your roots, since it isn’t being washed off after) and leave it to dry. Thereafter, it will make your hair detangling process much easier.
Benefits of using this hair spray for your hair:
Here are the benefits of all the ingredients used in this hair spray:
Using coconut oil can help reduce hair fall by penetrating deep into the hair shaft, preventing protein loss and also reduces it from getting damaged. It moisturizes the hair and promotes hair growth. Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid and has a moisturizing effect and can help treat dandruff and dry skin, as it has antimicrobial properties.
Rosemary essential oil:
The properties of anti-inflammation in rosemary essential oil can also help prevent and treat scalp conditions and reduce hair fall. Rosemary helps promote hair growth by healing the damaged hair follicles (by helping heal damaged nerve endings and tissues) as it contains ‘carnosic acid’. This property of rosemary essential oil can heal nerve endings and could possibly stimulate rejuvenation of hair follicles, in turn restoring hair growth.
Vitamin E acts as a protective layer for the hair follicle and can help restore hair shine, while also reducing hair damage and hair breakage. It helps enhance blood circulation in the scalp, thereby increasing hair growth. It helps keep the hair and scalp nourished, thus strengthening the hair strands and reducing hair fall considerably.
Rose water can help reduce dandruff and treat certain scalp conditions as it has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It can help reduce hair dryness and hair frizz as it acts as a natural hair moisturizer and makes the hair more manageable and gives the hair a better shine. It can nourish the scalp and promote hair growth by stimulating the hair follicles and promoting the hair growth phase as rose petals contain phytonutrients. It acts as an astringent and can help reduce the oiliness of the scalp and hair.
