Luckily, this naturally moisturising coconut oil hair spray recipe is the perfect potion for restoring those foxy locks of yours. The conditioning ingredients form a protective barrier against external elements such as pollution, heat damage, smoke and chlorine.

DIY Moisturising Coconut Oil Hair Spray Recipe

What you'll need

  • Organic virgin coconut oil (Hair Balm) - for deep nourishment, from root to tip.

  • Lavender essential oil – Helps with dandruff, dry scalp and hair growth. 

  • Water - Distilled, Filtered or Rosewater. Rosewater is extremely conditioning (and smells like Turkish delight).

  • Spray bottle.


  1. Put your spray bottle down somewhere flat and unscrew the lid.

  2. Melt down 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil and pour it into the bottle.

  3. Add around 3 drops of lavender oil.

  4. Add 1 cup of filtered/distilled water or rosewater.

  5. Add a lil splash of Vitamin E Oil if you've got any.

  6. Screw the lid back on.

  7. Shake it like a Polaroid picture.

  8. Spritz liberally all over those foxy locks of yours.

  9. Enjoy your hair's healthy, shiny softness!

Extra tips

Shake the spray bottle well before you use it.

You can use the spray on dry hair, before or after styling, as a pre-shampoo treatment, or right after showering when your hair is freshly washed and slightly damp.

This spray is fab to use if you have dandruff or a dry, itchy scalp. Coconut oil, lavender oil and vitamin E are highly moisturising and safe for sensitive skin.

You can use this coconut oil spray to protect your hair naturally whilst swimming to prevent chlorine and sun damage.
