DIY HairspraY

Good Morning Baltimore!!! *sings*

I am starting to learn how to curl my hair now that it’s longer . This means I need more products to hold said hair together…Whoever said ‘Simplify, simplify’ was right! Who knew that long hair could be so demanding. I’m enjoying my long hair for now but let’s see how long this will last *haha* before I chop it off into a pixie again.

For now, I am trying to find a hairspray that is cruelty-free, chemical-free and non-BDS which is a damn near impossible task. So it’s time to DIY it up.

I followed this recipe from WholeNewMom.

This hairspray actually works pretty well! I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome – it has a flexible hold and best of all, I don’t get coughing fits from the leftover mist because there is no mist. The only thing is that I have to shield my face from the spray when using it.

Let me know if you try this DIY and how it works out for you. 🙂

stay true xo

      • I make a lot of my own products. What I do with my sea spray is add oils…olive is a little greasy (but good if you are extra dry), I like almond oil, and apricot oil. Start with a 1/2 teaspoon per 8oz of liquid. If that isn’t enough you can always add more. I usually make my sea spray 4 oz at a time. As for this hairspray I will play with the ingredients. I will try it as is and then maybe add a few softening ingredients such as glycerin. This is a hairspray and if its too drying I may do a coconut hair mask before showering. That always cures my locks! Have a great day QT!

      • that’s really great that you make so many of your own products. I’m finding it harder and harder to purchase products off the mass-market now especially with all my criteria (cruelty-free, sensitive skin, non-BDS etc etc). I will play around with the hairspray but I do like my hair without lots of products right now so it’s working out. Can’t wait to see more of your DIYs!

      • Making my own products came from when my little girl had problem skin (from birth) I made lotion and from there went a more wholesome way of eating too. All goes hand in hand. 20 plus years later I make not only body products but yogurts and pet food. 🙂 A lifestyle that has taken years to learn little by little. And I wouldn’t test anything on my animals that I’m not willing to test on myself! Hahaha. There’s a pet shampoo I make that I’ve been known to wash my hair with! 😉
