Did you know that after having a virus your hair sheds? I’m talking clumps of hair after each shower exactly like after having a baby. This happened to me after having the flu last year. Unfortunately, I had had my hair thinned by a hair dresser to make it more manageable so losing more has made my hair feel and look much more sparse then usual. It was time to take some action. In order to encourage new hair growth, I’ve concocted a DIY Hair Growth Spritzer! It’s easy to make and smells wonderful!

I created THIS DIY serum that is oil based to help promote a healthy scalp and encourage hair growth but for those of us that have an oilier scalp, it’s just not feasible to use an oil based product. I decided to create a simple product based on the essential oils in the original DIY that are shown to regrow hair but remove the oils and simply add witch hazel and aloe. While we aren’t getting the popular castor oil or black cumin seed oil in this DIY, I find that the witch hazel feels fresh and light and comes in handy in between washes!

Causes of Hair Loss:

  • Emotional stress
  • Viruses
  • Ring Worm
  • Physical stress
  • Postpartum
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Thyroid issues
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Vitamin & mineral deficiencies
  • Allergies
  • Heredity

Cedarwood Essential Oil is an extremely important ingredient when experiencing hair loss.  Study after study prove cedarwood oil is very effective when it comes to re-growing hair.  

Rosemary Essential Oil-Rosemary stimulates circulation which in turn wakes up hair follicles.  Circulation is key when it comes to hair growth.  Rosemary also increases cellular metabolism.

Tea Tree, Lavender and Lemon essential oils all help to detox and purge hair follicles as well as kill bacteria that could be clogging pores. 

DIY Hair Growth Spritzer


  • Mix all ingredients in a 2 ounce glass spray bottle.
  • Spray on your roots 1-3 times a day.
  • You can massage into your scalp for added penetration and circulation.

My hair has stopped falling out. I read that when hair falls out due to a virus or hormones, it typically only lasts about 3 months. I’ve been taking a biotin supplement as well as collagen in my smoothie and have noticed a lot of baby hairs so using this spray is a nice bonus. It smells great, freshens up my scalp and even tingles a bit. I highly recommend making this simple DIY if you’re experiencing hair loss.

Remember, your DIYs are only as good as your product. It’s tempting to just order from Amazon but you lose so much quality that way. I highly recommend sticking with Mountain Rose Herbs. I believe their quality and integrity is far above any other business that sells organic ingredients. It’s also refreshing to know that they are very reasonably priced.

If you have a dry scalp, I recommend THIS DIY instead.

Remember, your DIYs are only as good as your ingredients. I prefer to get my ingredients from either Mountain Rose Herbs or Plant Therapy. However, I do have some favorites on Amazon and am always on the search for unadulterated, organic ingredients. You can find my Amazon picks HERE.

  1. What about those of us with normal hair? I use to think i.had oily hair, but went for an in depth consultation on my hair and found since I only have to wash it every other day, it’s normal. Also, for those of us who live in the South and have to deal with sandgnats or no-see-ums as some call them, tea tree anything is a no-no. They are attracted to it. Yay! I learned this the hard way while creating a natural repellant for them. I tend to substitute various other Essential Oils in it’s place depending on what I’m using it for.

    1. Tina-The oil based recipe is by far more effective and more potent then this one. If you can do the oil based recipe then I would do it. If I were deeply concerned about my hair thinning or loss I would use the oil based recipe at night and then shampoo in the morning.

  2. Quick question….. do you intermittent fast? I am 50 years old, in great shape, have had perfect blood work every year at my annual check ups. I have been intermittent fasting for the past year, as well as eating mostly Keto, however have healthy carbs often but not daily , such as sweet potatoes, grapes with cheese, etc. All of the sudden, my hair is falling out and thinning. I have not been sick in literally 6 years! I just wonder if the reason your hair was falling out was possibly intermittent fasting as opposed to a virus??

    1. Sweeny-I don’t intermittent fast. I didn’t come across intermittent fasting in my research on hair loss but it doesn’t seem too far fetched that it could cause it. Hormone imbalance is a big cause of hair loss too, mainly thyroid if I understand correctly. Of course stress is another cause. Best of luck-mine has stopped and didn’t last too long-typically it’s about a 3 mos. shedding duration.

  3. Hairs are a major beauty aspect of a women, every women cares about their hairs. The diy hair growth sprayer will be helpful for us to take proper care of our hairs. Thank you for sharing it with us through this article.

    1. Heather-Mountain Rose Herbs is the best quality with fair pricing. You can always find cheaper on Amazon but you are definitely sacrificing quality. In a DIY like this where you want results, I would stick with MRH.

    1. Stacy-I wouldn’t. I believe the essential oils are a bit strong. Are you trying to encourage hair growth? If so, both my girls had very thin hair and bald patches as toddlers. It was sad looking. Now, they have thick hair and I did nothing but trim it once in a while. Hope this helps.

    1. Mildred-I’m not sure-I’m leaning towards no. I formulated it for people like me that tend to get oily so I just wanted to make sure it didn’t add extra oil. I would love to formulate something that would help with excess scalp oil but so far I’ve not found anything natural!

  4. I would sub out the tea tree and add instead, peppermint essential oil. It stimulates the scalp into thinking it needs to grow hair. Tea tree is pretty strong stuff and I’d only use it if you have really bad scalp conditions. Especially at that strength.
    Also, due to the fact that citrus essential oils can cause problems if used while in the sun, I’d switch that out for 1 of three: Holy Basil E.O., Sage E.O. or Ravintsara E.O.

  5. Hair is an important component of a woman’s beauty, and every woman is concerned about her hair. The diy hair growth sprayer will assist us in taking adequate care of our hair. Thank you for informing us about it in this article.

  6. This sounds wonderful just to simply use during menopause! All the sweating I do, this sounds like a perfect remedy for my sweaty hair feel and smell. Growth is a bonus!
