Hair, just like anything else on the body, needs a little care. And it is your job to provide that care as a cosmetologist. You should strive to provide more than just a nice haircut and an interesting hairstyle if you want your potential clients to remember you and your work. Cosmetology offers you the opportunity to be creative in creating your signature hair treatments, and the following natural spritz is just one example that you can consider.
Ingredients That You'll Need
Commercially-sold moisturizers can be expensive and may contain questionable ingredients. Thankfully, you can make your own moisturizing spritz that will offer your clients an effective alternative that they can only get from you. The following contains the basic ingredients that are usually available in your local health food store or online:
- 1 cup of alkaline water
- 1 tablespoon of vegetable glycerin
- 1 teaspoon of sweet almond oil
- 5 drops of rose oil
- 5 drops of rosemary oil
Remember to pay attention to specific hair types because that could determine what type of oils you need to create a unique hair spritz.
What Is So Special About These Ingredients?
You should be aware of the benefits these ingredients will offer your hair. So consider the following:
Rose oil has several proteins and active ingredients that intensify its effect. For one, rose oil is highly hydrating, and it also has emollient properties. That means rose oil should help moisturize your client's hair, encouraging volume and shine. You should also know that rose oil should help eliminate hair and scalp dryness.
Sweet Almond Oil
Adding sweet almond oil to your spritz is good for a few reasons, like the high vitamin A and E content that the oil contains. Both of these vitamins will help your client's hair shine and grow. And, just like rose oil, sweet almond oil has strong emollient properties that should help keep the hair moisturized, adding volume and softness to the hair.
Rosemary oil helps stimulate your client's hair follicles, which means more growth and volume. Hair grown with rosemary should be a lot stronger due to its active ingredients. You should also know that rosemary oil will help fight dandruff because it is highly anti-fungal.
And, Now, To Make Your Spritz
- Empty and clean a regular spray bottle, or buy one from your local beauty store.
- Pour the water in your bottle.
- Mix in your sweet almond oil.
- Add your essential oils, and blend well.
- Lastly, mix in your vegetable glycerin.
- This should last at least a month, depending on how you use it.
That is how simple it is to make a natural hair spritz that should help improve your client's hair, which should help get your work to stand out among the rest.
