DIY Mermaid Hair Spray

I remember when I was younger, my hair grew so fast and was so thick. I think by the time I reached my mid-20’s is when my hair started to thin out and grow more slowly. It is easier for us to notice “bald spots” than others. Every time I look in the mirror, my eyes go directly to my “bald spot.” 😦 I didn’t know Mermaid Hair Spray existed until two years ago. I did make it at one point, but didn’t commit to using it daily.

I will be challenging myself to use this daily. I suggest you join me on this challenge! Be sure to take a before photo for comparison in a couple of months 🙂

Here are a few benefits of each oil:

Lavender oil improves blood circulation, which helps follicles to grow healthy, thick and long hair throughout your entire scalp. It also has antimicrobial properties which kills bacteria and fungi. It also moisturizes your scalp, which keeps dandruff away! 😉

Rosemary oil has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It restores the micro capillaries in your scalp, enhancing blood flow to the hair follicles, which stimulates new hair growth.

Cedarwood oil cleanses and enhances circulation to the scalp, tightens the follicles and stimulate healthy growth. It also reduces thinning and slows hair loss. ;)What you need:

  • 2 oz spray bottle

  • Alcohol Free Witch Hazel (unscented)

  • 15 drops of Lavender

  • 15 drops of Rosemary

  • 15 drops of Cedarwood

  • Distilled water


  1. Add all drops of essential oils

  2. Add in 3 tablespoons of the witch hazel

  3. Top off the rest of the bottle with distilled water

  4. Shake to mix before each use

  5. Spray on hair daily while wet or dry. You can use this spray multiple times during the day. Try to focus/aim on your scalp.


  • If you are using a 4 oz spray bottle, be sure to double the recipe

  • There are several different recipes floating around the internet. If this one doesn’t seem like it is working for you, try a different one! 🙂

  • Other Essential Oils that promote hair growth:

    • Clary Sage

    • Cypress

    • Fennel

    • Thyme

    • Ylang Ylang

If you have used this before, please let me know if it worked for you! If your recipe is different, please post it below in the comments section. I would love to see which recipes work for others.Thank you 🙂
