I’ve never liked conventional hair spray, honestly. It always leaves a nasty tacky feeling in my hair that makes it impossible to work with once my hair is down for the day. Yuck. But not this DIY hairspray! When I spray it in my hair, it doesn’t leave it feeling sticky or icky. In fact, my hair feels one hundred percent fine, like I didn’t even put anything in it. Only, ha, I did, which I can see from the amazing results I get. This non toxic hair spray WORKS, greenifiers. You only need three ingredients to make it too, and more than likely, they’re already in your home. And I’m ready to share it with you. Here’s how to make zero waste hair spray.
Does zero waste hair spray exist? Yes, yes it does my friends, and I’m here to tell you all about it. Stop whatever you’re using right now and switch to this. Please. It will save you SO much money and you’ll question why you even decided to waste money buying hair spray to begin with. Plus, not to mention, conventional hair spray is loaded with a bunch of questionable ingredients. It’s also terrible for the environment. While aerosol cans aren’t depleting the ozone layer anymore with CFCs, according to Scientific American, they still contain hydrocarbons and/or compressed gases infamous for their contribution to global warming. So, essentially, every time you go to spray your hair, you’re just raising your own carbon footprint (albeit slowly). You know what I say to that? Lets eliminate that risk entirely by making our own non toxic hair spray!
Zero Waste Hair Spray
- 1/2 cup of warm water (or enough to fill whatever spray bottle you decide to use)
- 1 tablespoon of sea salt (you can also use table salt, if it’s all you have)
- 1 to 2 teaspoons of coconut oil (or any nourishing hair oil, like avocado or argan oil)
- Using a glass spray bottle (I used a 4 oz cobalt glass bottle with a mister top), funnel in the warm water. Make sure there’s enough space left for you to add the other two ingredients without anything overflowing. I essentially just made some tea for myself and used the leftover water for this DIY.
- When you’re ready, add the sea salt and the hair nourishing oil of your choice (I went with coconut oil). Screw on the top of the bottle until it’s secure. Then, give the glass bottle a good shake! Since the water is warm, it should make it easier for all the ingredients to combine together. Shake it up until the sea salt is mostly, or completely, dissolved. Now it’s ready for use!
