Misto Olive Oil Sprayer | A better way to seal your hair?

Last week I boasted about a new method of oil application which really helped my hair's moisture levels.  If your hair loves oils like mine, you should check this post out. A wonderful reader by the name of "Emelia" left me a comment about the Misto Olive oil sprayer as an alternative to my makeshift spray bottle.  

Immediately I was intrigued and wanted this sprayer to step my game up.  So I immediately went out and got it!  As soon as the Misto sprayer was in my possession, I began to fill it half way with jojoba oil.  After filling, I utilized the nifty cap to pressurize the Misto ensuring the oil comes out in a mist instead of a stream.  
First impressions, I love it!  The Misto far outperformed my spray bottle.  There were times when it would produce streams of oil, instead of a mist. I quickly rectified that issue by using the cap to aerate my Misto once again.  It's a small price to pay for what I get in return.  The result of when I use the Misto vs. my spray bottle is that my hair doesn't feel quite as oily and weighed down.  I think this method may work better for more people than my previous suggestion. My spray bottle gave a "heavy" sealing. This one is just right. I'm gonna get another one in a different color to house my coconut oil once it's melts as the weather warms up.  I'm predicting that both my spray bottle/w oil and this Misto Sprayer are going to be life savers for me as the weather heats up and humidity rises. 

*whispers in your ear* "My favorite thing to do in the world now is spraying my ends with oil. It makes them so buttery and yummy."

Who's going to try this?

  1. Another great tip! Thanks for sharing Nadege!

  2. LOL my name is Emilia not Dav (no harm done)but I'm glad to see you tried the sprayer and loved it :)

    It works best if you don't fill it more than half way. Keeps the pressure and maintains a steady misting.

  3. wow, this sounds amazing hopefully its available in the uk

  4. I bought the Misto Sprayer and put my DIY castor oil in it but it wont spray :(. Not sure if its just suitable for light oils

  5. Awa, is the oil still coming out? When it streams, I keep pumping it with the cap until it comes out as a mist again. If not, try a lighter oil mixed with castor.

  6. Found mind wandering around in home goods today for $4 in the kitchen gadget aisle. I cannot want to go home and put my jojoba, grapeseed, and olive oil mix in it.

  7. Bought mine Friday! Already in love. I think I didn't pump it enough, it sprayed like the end of a bottle of Pam, so I'll try it again tomorrow, but, I definitely didn't overdo it!

  8. Thanks for the response Nadege, but no it drips instead of spraying. I will try a lighter oil, and if it doesn't work then maybe I got a bad bottle.

  9. Awa, when I pump, I do it until the cap no longer is able to pump up and down. That's when I know that the bottle is fully pressurized and will produce the best mist.
