I am so excited to share with you this effortless diy natural hair spray that will add volume to flat and thin hair.
I’ve been using it for the past 2 years and I am literally in love with it ! As you may know branded hair spray products are expensive and usually full of chemical ingredients and silicons! Wouldn’t you feel more at peace saving some money and especially being totally aware of what you apply on you hair getting an awesome result?
If you’ll give this a try and totally love it you’re going to change the way you look at hairspray forever 😉
Check out the video-tutorial below for the recipe!
In order to make this natural homemade hair spray you’ll need: demineralized water, apple vinegar (or any vinegar you may have at hand), aloe vera gel, your favorite organic fragrance, an ecological and organic preservative, panthenol, phytokeratine powder and rice proteins (or wheat or silk proteins – any of these will do).
In order to add volume to your hair you will need at least one of the last 3 ingredients of the recipe: phytokeratine / panthenol /rice (silk or wheat) proteins .
On the whole these 3 ingredients are the ones that will give your hair the volume and thickness you long for. You may get discouraged by having to purposely buy these ingredients but consider that they do not cost more than 3-4 $ per type and they will last you for years. A small investment now to save some money in the years to come!
The phytokeratine which is in fact hydrolyzed wheat protein will improve and strengthen the hair structure, maintaining its moisture, making it soft, shiny, healthy looking.
The panthenol (or vitamine B5) will fortify and repair your hair from tip to root and it will promote your hair growth.
The rice proteins (as well as the silk or wheat proteins) will give your hair strength and volume and it makes your hair easy to style
If you only have the rice proteins, you may use 4g instead of 2g.
The vinegar will make your hair shiny and soft and closes the cuticles. When the cuticle is in good shape, is unbroken, and lies flat, your hair has a smooth appearance. When the layers of the cuticle are tightly knit together, the light is able to reflect off the cuticle. This is what makes hair shine! The cuticle opens when we shampoo our hair. When the cuticle layers are open and not knit together, the hair will feel rough, coarse and brittle. The hair will absorb the light rather than reflect it, which gives the appearance of dull and lifeless hair.
Of course you will get the best results following the recipe. You will find the ingredients in any retail supplier of natural ingredients and cosmeceuticals for skin care, hair care online or sometimes even in your trusted pharmacy.
Instead of using a fragrance, you may also use your favorite essential oil (for cosmetic use). You just have to remember to shake the bottle for 5 seconds before using it.
If you do not add the preservative, you may increase the life of your hairspray, storing the bottle in the refrigerator. It will last for at least a couple of weeks and I strongly advise you to do a smaller quantity (50 g instead of 100 g as per my recipe)
The ph of this recipe is 5 due to the low content of apple vinegar. The mildly acidic nature of this product will harden its outer layer, flatten its cuticles, and shrink the diameter of the hair. This serves to make the hair glossy, shiny and less prone to tangling.
Okay, but in the video I’m talking about a personalized DIY hair spray! Yeap, you can personalize it and make it stronger or weaker. It’s all up to you and to your hair 😉
If you tried the recipe of the video tutorial and yet you’d like a stronger version of the hair spray you may wanna try the following recipe:
demineralized water 75g
rice protein 2g
aloe gel 10g
apple vinegar 10g
fragrance 3 gtt
preservative 16 gtt
The ph will be of 4,5 therefore still in the range of the ideal pH of 4.5 – 5.0 for hair care.
I think you’ll be astonished at how well it works, and how incredibly simple it is to get such an amazing hair product.
If instead you’d enjoy a 100% natural, ready-to-use alternative, take a look at my Texture & Volume booster extracted from green walnuts & green leaves and with hydrolyzed oats proteins from my organic, vegan & gluten free cosmetic line Beautilicious Delights.
You’d have to add it to the Beautilicious Delights Active Leave-in Hair Spray whose unique, lightweight formula, rich in moisturizing active principles (aloe gel), with restructuring (panthenol, sodium hyaluronate), conditioning (betaine) and shine enhancing properties (fruit acids derived from apples, grapes & lemons) will deeply penetrate into the hair fibre repairing, fortifying & leaving it soft, shiny and vigorous.
This synergy between the Hair Spray & the Volume Booster will pump up your hair from the roots helping it acquire a fuller looking style and customizable volume, feeling thicker & silkier with an all-day weightless volume that feels naturally yours.
