My New Natural Must Have

My pure rose water finally arrived and I love it. I now mix it with the pure aloe vera juice and it is very moisturizing. The spray bottle on the left is filled with the aloe vera and the rose water is already in a spray bottle so I did not mix the two yet. Currently I will spray my hair with the aloe juice and then spray it with the rose water or vise versa.
The Benefits of Rose Water
Moisturizes the hair and makes it more manageable
Adds shine to your hair (I got a little shine from it but not too much)
It can also be used as an astringent to cleanse the face (I have not tried this yet).
I love how it has been making my hair feel the past few days so I will continue to buy it. I am using the brand Kama Ayurveda which can be purchased online for $22.00. This particular brand of rose water is steam distilled which is done to purify the product.
How do you use rose water?

i have heard of rose water. do you know anyone with natural hair who uses it? what are their thoughts? i know you use aloe vera juice but have you tried aloe vera gel yet. i would recommend it for you to use for braid-outs and twist-outs.

I'm a napptural but I've never tried Rose Water in the hair. Hmmm.....that's an idea. I do however make a blend with it to splash on my face on those hot Floridian days. But since antithesis brought it up, it would probably be divine for a twist-out!

Interestingly enough, i use Rose water as a substitute to lotion in the summer! Have been doing this for some years now. its not too oily and keeps you hyradted through out the day. Give it a try!

Amina said...

Your going to love both as a moisturizer...I mix mine together both there both great !!!

justme said...

wow, can you mix them together? i am so lazy with my hair. i am telling you my new regimen with the rose water on my face has my skin looking 10 times better and i dont think it has been 2 weeks yet!

@Antithesis At the moment I don't know of any naturals that use it but I will send out an email today and get back to you. It does have the consistency of water so are you concerned with shrinkage etc?
I have used the crushed up pure aloe from the plant in my hair but not the gel purchased from the store. If the gel is 100% pure then it would be the same thing as using the plant itself.
@B I just started using it on my face last night and I like what I am feeling so far. I used to use a rose facial mask from Fresh that wasnt bad at all.
@RenRen well since you are always working on faces it may work well as an astringent when you are cleaning of a client's face.
@Miss Moss I will try that that idea THANKS!!!
@Amina thanks I will have to stop by her page to check it out.
@Jamie hey..your contest is so nice.... yes if you get the rose water tell me what you think.
@Tracyee I was going to mix them but I think I need a funnel to get the rosewater in with the aloe because I don't want to waste a
@Justme- Yes you can certainly mix them together I just didn't want to spill any so I have been spraying them They feel great together. Your hair is awesome so keep doing what you are doing. I used it on my face today and last night and I like it. I think I wrote a comment on your page recently telling you that your skin looked so squirt some rose water on my face

Never knew rose water could be a benefit for natural hair. I've only ever heard about its use in regards to spritzing the face.

I'll have to try it, ditto for the Aloe Vera.

Fly girl When I said my natural must have I meant that the rosewater is a natural product. I actually have relaxed hair...sorry for the confusion. I am on the hunt to find naturals using rose water in their hair so I will keep you posted.

Amina said...

i bought my little 3.99 bottle of rosewater at the local organic store...
i put in my spritz bottle and will let you know how i like it...
it smells soooooooooooo good!!

Product Junkie Diva said...

@Amina I hope you like it on your hair. Here is the good thing though, if it does nothing for your hair you can always use it as a toner for your face. I have been applying it to my face after cleansing and I LOVE it.
thanks for reading.

where did you buy the rosewater?

Product Junkie Diva said...

Anonymous the rosewater came from but I must say this is a more expensive brand so you may want to look at your local health food store to see if it's cheaper. However I do really like this particular brand.
