Kinky-Curly Hair Homemade Spritz Alternative

The weather is getting warmer and if you’re like me, a homemade spritz is a quick fix to hair that needs a little extra moisture in the middle of the day.  I finally found an alternative that is comparable to my homemade spritz that is offline, easy to find, and cheap.  Ion Leave-In-Conditioner (anti-frizz solutions) Daily No Rinse Treatment is the next best thing to my homemade spritz.  This double duty leave-in is currently on sale at Sally Beauty Supply ($3.99) and is also a great detangler.  The back of my hair is tangle city and just spritzing the area with this leave-in detangles instantly and easily. 

There is a cone in this product (amodimethicone) and a paraben at the bottom of the ingredient list (methylparaben), but overall, Ion Leave-Conditioner is a good product.  So far, I haven’t had any problems with buildup or itching.  Please note that this product does not define kinks and curls, but does soften and detangle, leaving hair fluffy and tangle free.  Cool product for a chunky fro, twistout, or to soften braids or locs. 

Other notable Ion product: Ion Reconstructor Treatment, $1.99, 1 oz. pkg.  Perfect for those monthly deep conditioning/strengthening treatments.

    Hi Cara! My current spritz is simple and consists of 1 cup distilled water, 1/4 cup aloe vera gel, 3 tbsp. olive oil, and 4 drops lavender essential oil added to 8 oz. bottle. Super soft fluffy hair with this and usually lasts me about a week.
