What you'll need:
1 cup filtered water
1 bag of chamomille tea
4 teaspoons of white sugar
2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
2 tsp vanilla extract
15 drops lavender essential oil
Glass spray bottle
What to do:
Bring the cup of water to a boil, and then steep the tea bag. You can do this in a bug or a bowl. Allow it to steep for 10 minutes, and then remove the tea bag. Add in the sugar, and allow it to fully dissolve. If you feel like your curls will need stronger hold, go ahead and some extra sugar, which is what hold your curls. Set the mixture to the side and allow it to fully cool. Once cooled, add the remainder of the ingredients to the bowl and fully mix. Then, use a funnel to transfer it to a spray bottle, and shake to finish mixing it.
Before using, shake the bottle well to reincorporate the ingredients. Then, hold the bottle about 8-10 inches away from your curls, and spritz throughout. The recipe above is for a light to medium hold, so as mentioned, adjust the sugar levels depends upon your individual hair needs. For waves or finger curls, this will work well to help hold curls in place, and minimize flyaways or frizz.
