    Water and any oils that you'd like. I use 100% coconut oil, castor oil and/or extra virgin olive oil (evoo). If I happen to use them all at once, which it rare, I only use 1 or 2 drops of each. Of course if you're adding essential oils (eo), then a drop will do you. Fill your spritz bottle with water or fill it half way, depending on the size of your bottle, and spritz as needed.

    I tried oil/h20 spritzes and those didn't work for me at all. Recently I tried Infusium 23...woo...I don't buy into "miracle" products, but that thing works! For me at least. My locs are soft and not dry feeling, I've been using it for a couple weeks now with great results. I have hair that is normally extra extra dry and rough feeling. Now it's cottony soft and not looking like a parched desert!

    Hi, First you can do a Hot oil treatment, weekly, bi-monthly or monthly. Use extra vrigin olive oil and maybe aid some EO. Then as needed make a spritz that contains some carrier oils such as evoo, sweet almond oil etc...I use EVOO--omega mix, because my hair tends to also be dry

    Non-sulfate shampoo. When I use it, I don't feel the need to oil my hair all the time. I got one from vitacost.com.
