Rosemary and Lavender Moisturizer For Hair

Homemade Moisturizer

When I first tried this I borrowed the recipe from the back of a commercial preparation and then tweaked it to suit my hair. My hair loved it. Please note that vegetable glycerin is used somewhat sparingly, too much and the recipe can get sticky.


1 Tbsp vegetable glycerin

1 ½ cup filtered water

3 tsp. lavender oil

5 drops rosemary oil

5 drops vitamin E oil


Put all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake together. Spray on hair daily or as needed. You can seal with your favourite carrier oil after (coconut, olive, castor, almond, jojoba). This mixture can last up to three weeks.

Ingredients Benefits:

Water– a natural moisturizer adds elasticity to hair.

Vegetable Glycerin– glycerin is made from fat both animal fat and vegetable fat. Vegetable glycerin is the best glycerin to use for hair products. Synthetic glycerine contains harmful properties. Glycerin or glycerol is hygroscopic; this means it draws water from its surroundings. When combined with water, glycerin will moisturize your hair very well. Vegetable glycerin loves water, the suggestion is to dilute at a minimum of 1 part glycerin with 2 parts water. You can mix vegetable glycerin with anything you want to be more moisturizing.
