Argan & Agave DIY Shine Spray Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen


.25 oz. Argan oil
.5 oz. fractionated coconut oil
.25 aloe vera gel
.3 oz. clear or natural jojoba oil
.2 oz. Cyclomethicone
.05 oz. Dimethicone
1ml light agave syrup
6 drops Propylene Glycol, optional


Using a digital scale weigh out the argan, fractionated coconut, and aloe oil as well as the Cyclomethicone and Dimethicone into a glass Pyrex measuring cup or medium glass or plastic beaker. Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette measure out the agave syrup and add it to the mix, then use a fresh pipetted to add six drops of the propylene glycol. If you wish to add a fragrance, add .1 oz. of fragrance oil of your choice. Stir to mix then using a funnel pour into a glass bottle with a fingertip mister and twist on the cap. Shake vigorously to comine all ingredients.

Because of the aloe vera gel, you will need to shake the DIY Shine Spray before each use. Be sure to use an aloe vera gel with a preservative if you don’t want to add your own. Mountain Rose Herbs makes a good one.

To use very lightly mist onto damp or dry hair and comb through.

If you find this is too conditioning for your hair, simply omit the Dimethicone.

    Where can I find those frosted glass bottles and I LOVE your labels. Did you just wrote on them and color and cut out or are the printed. Love it!! Thank you

      The bottles were upcycled from a purchase I had made. I drew the labels, thanks.

    is there any replacements you might suggest for the last few ingredients? i’m trying to keep everything on the more natural side and it worries me to start using a lot of chemical sounding products

      The cyclomethicone and dimethicone are popular silicones used in many commercial hair products and also shine killing facial products. There’s not really a sub that I’m aware of. You may want to consider my Homemade Hair Oil Recipe for dry hair instead though I’m not sure it’s sprayable.
