A couple of weeks ago when I was making my Daily Spritz mix for the week, I did something very stupid. I poured water in from the kettle, not thinking it would still be way too hot to pour into my bottle. Well, of course the bottle distorted (duh) and with that came the decision to buy a new spray bottle. I’d gotten so used to using my dear little re-purposed former body spray bottle of 150ml capacity that anything beyond 200ml would be too hectic for me. The 150ml was the perfect size to hold my week’s worth of spray. Anywho, I ended up buying the nicest looking one I could find at my local pharmacy for R25. Well, that didn’t last either. A couple of days into it, I saw that this bottle also distorted! Through no fault of my own though. I’m assuming that something in my mix isn’t agreeing with the plastic and is making it cave in :s which I think is strange because these spray bottles are usually meant for some more hectic ingredients than what I put into my mix.
So I went out and got this:
How cute is this bottle?? R9.90 at Pick n’ Pay. Cute, cheap and holds 450ml. They have them in blue, pink, red, yellow and this cute purple. I love how it’s round! For my readers who are battling with where to buy – Pick n Pay of course have them, Checkers and pharmacies. I haven’t seen ones that are bigger than travel size (50ml) at Clicks. I usually find them at the gardening section of the store.
I’ve also decided to share some exact measurements of my slightly altered Daily Spritz ingredients as quite a few readers were a bit lost with the ‘parts’ explanation. I’ve basically just added more water to my mix but the rest stays the same:
- 60 ml bottled water/ previously boiled water
- 60 ml Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner (not available in SA so substitute with your conditioner of choice)
- 60 ml Aloe Vera juice
- 30 ml glycerin
- 1 tsp castor oil
- 1 tsp avocado oil
This mix gives me almost 250ml of Daily Spritz. I doubled the water from my previous mix as I felt my hair is a bit too dry at the moment. Play around with the ratios to fit your hair needs 😉
