Today we will be making a simple green alternative to the current hair sprays that are on offer - which nearly 100% of the time comes in plastic packaging. This hairspray recipe is extremely cheap and easy to make.

We will be using 3 simple ingredients. 2 of them you definitely have at home - water and sea salt. And the third ingredient in this low impact hair spray is…. You guessed it! Argan oil... or to be honest any hair nourishing oil that works for you. Everyone has hair (maybe not all, if you don’t, I’m curious to as how you got here?). If you do have hair, you will definitely notice that on some days it’s more oilier than others. This depends mainly three factors: How often you wash your hair,  with what you wash your hair and on the type of food you eat. So if you have more oilly hair, then you can of course decrease the amount of argon oil or your oil of preference.

Let’s get to it! Let’s make the world’s simplest natural homemade hairspray!

  1. In a pourable container, add 1 cup of warm water
  2. A tablespoon of sea salt
  3. 1- 2 tsp of argan oil or any hair nourishing oil and stir until it has dissolved.

As mentioned before, If you have dry hair add more oil, and if you tend to get greasy hair add less. Place the mixture in a glass spray bottle, or repurpose an old spray bottle you might have at home.

So how do we use this mystical natural hair spray?
Like anything in life, first shake well before use - not sure if you got that joke. But do shake well before use, and apply onto the ends of your hair after a shower, working the spray into your hair with your hands. Once dry you should be left with textured hair like you just walked off the beach!
