Basic Homemade Leave In Conditioner and Hair Moisturizer


½ cup vegetable glycerin

2 cups water

½ cup moisturizing conditioner (choose your favorite)

4 drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)


Mix together all the ingredients in a spray bottle. Spray as often as hair needs to be refreshed. This recipe works very well if you want to do curly hairstyles. Seal after moisturizing with your favorite carrier oil (castor oil, coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil).

Please note that I have not added any oils to this basic mixture. I find that my hair does better with the moisturizing then sealing sequence, instead of adding it to the basic mixture. This is a personal preference. Some persons add their favorite carrier oils to the basic moisturizing mixture and it works just fine for them.
