The Rosemary and Sage Spritz is a must if you often wear your hair in natural protective styles, such as twists and cornrows. We also recommend using it before undoing dry cornrows or plaits, as the moisture helps to prevent breakage especially at the tips. The combination of Rosemary and Sage is known to stimulate growth, condition the hair and darken the greys. The spritz moisturises the hair and should be used in conjunction with a sealing product to prevent it evaporating. After applying the spritz we recommend using the Rosemary and Jojoba with Shea and Coconut to lock in the moisture. This will help to protect the hair in rough and dry environments.
So you may ask the question “Why should I use this Rosemary Hydrolat base instead of just regular tap water?” The minerals put in the tap water can sit on the hair and eventually cause damage. “Researchers have discovered that traces of copper in the water that people wash their hair with from the pipes in their homes can damage their locks. They found the metal gradually builds up in hair, helping to speed up damage caused by sunlight, causing split ends, fly-away strands and less shine. The effect is even more pronounced in those who use hair dyes, they claim.” Telegraph 16th June 2013. This quote is relating to copper applied EXTERNALLY to the hair. We must have the RDA of copper as part of our diet for healthy hair. But tap water also contains chlorine which any regular swimmer will testify of its contribution to dry hair.
Rather than collect a bottle of spring water to mist the hair, try our mix of sage and organic rosemary hydrolat which is the steam collected in the manufacturing of essential oils and still contains the properties of the herbs! Our customers have commented on the difference that the spritz makes to their hair and we at Arise and Shine Cosmetics use nothing else to mist our hair. They say that the proof is in the pudding. Why don’t you give it a try?
