Capping Off Your Wash Routine with a Leave In: MORE on How to Get Moisture Drenched Hair

Another  way to have an opportunity to add moisture to your hair is during your leave-in process.


1/2 cup aloe vera juice
1-2 tablespoons of oil
1 tablespoon of vegetable glycerin
1-3 drops of rosemary essential oil ( optional)
1-3 drops of sage essential oil (optional)
1-3 drops of basil essential oil ( optional)
Liquid Panthenol ( optional)

1.  Mix all the ingredients together.  You can even place them into a spray bottle.  Spray the mixture onto your freshly rinsed hair. 

2.  Work the leave-in mixture into your hair from root to tip.

3.  Do not rinse out this mixture.

4.  Style your hair as usual.

Many thanks to the lovely Chicoro for sharing this with the natural hair community.

My thoughts...

My hair looooooves Aloe juice, I add Aloe juice in all of my products on wash day.

That is an awesome recipe that I use without sage oil and panthenol. I have never tried sage oil and panthenol, which I tried to order via the link you provided in an old post. I would love to try those ingredients in my leave in. Thanks for sharing!
