Mermaid Hair


All my life I’ve had curly red hair, and though in my younger years I hated my curly hair and would beg my mom to blow dry it straight, as I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to appreciate it more and more. For instance, my hair is also fairly thin, so I always say God gave me curly hair because it gives the impression of thick hair. So it’s the silver lining of unruly hair. 😉 In the past year, I’ve noticed my hair getting straighter and straighter. My curly hair may have been annoying in my younger years, but I’ve loved it in my recent years because it’s easy and fast to fix, so as you can imagine it started to worry me when it started to get straighter. I don’t know how to use a curling iron anymore! Or a straight iron! Or even how to blow dry my hair without just tossing my head over and going after it! 

That’s when I ran across this great little essential oil recipe for healthier hair. I originally saw it posted on my oils page, then found it was out of a little book called The Chemical Free Home. This hair spritz has not only made my hair fuller, but seems to be rejuvenating my curls! I like to call it my Magical Mermaid Hair Spritz. 


I couldn’t be more happy with the results I’ve had in the last 2 months! There are a few different recipes, but here’s the one I’ve been using and enjoy:

  • 15 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
  • 10 drops of Lemon Essentisl Oil
  • 8 drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil
  • 1/2 oz of vodka or witch hazel (I use the witch hazel
  • 5oz of distilled water

I add all the ingredients to my spray bottle and shake well. If you’re familiar with oils, you know they can’t be used in plastic containers or bottles because one of pure oils main purposes is to rid toxins. So essentially it eats through any plastic container because it’s getting rid of toxins. The pretty glass bottle I use now was given to me, but you can go to Life Science and buy your pretty glass containers and bottles.


I use it twice a day, once when my hair is wet from the shower in the morning, then I spritz my hair before I go to bed. Not only is it helping my hair, it smells great!

There are a few different recipes I’ve read since I’ve been using this, the main recipe actually calls for 4 drops of Geranium Essential Oil too. I personally don’t care for the smell of the geranium oil, and I’ve used the spritz without it and it works just as well. One recipe also calls for 1tsp of Epsom salt and 1/2tsp of sea salt. I’ll be adding salt to my next bottle to try it out.

I hope all you mermaids out there get a chance to try this great stuff! If you’ve never used oils before, and have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask! Happy Summer Hair!

    • I’ve done some reading up on this, and yes Lemon can lighten hair color, so unless you’re interested in having some
      Highlights, I’d recommend using this combo without the lemon and replace it with Geranium 🙂 hope this helps! Thanks for reading!
