Herbal-Citrus Leave-in Hair Conditioner
- 4 oz pure aloe vera gel
- 4 oz distilled water
- 5 drops orange essential oil
- 3 drops lavender essential oil
- 3 drops rosemary essential oil
- 8 oz. spray bottle
Pour the aloe vera gel and water into a bowl and stir to combine. Add essential oils and pour into your spray bottle. Shake well before each use. Spritz on and comb through wet hair to condition, detangle, and define curls. You can also spritz into dry hair the next day to revitalize curls. The addition of rosemary essential oil also stimulates hair growth and treats itchy scalps and dandruff. Not for children under the age of 10. For younger children, leave out the rosemary essential oil or replace with tea tree oil.
