I have baby fine hair, but I have a lot of it. When I use hot styling tools on my hair without a heat protecting hairspray my hair tends to become dry, brittle and damaged. However, I do not use the chemical loaded heat protecting sprays you can get from a salon. Instead, I make my own using simple natural ingredients and a clean spray bottle. Here you will learn how to make your own heat protecting hairspray for your hair right at home in your kitchen.
Natural Ingredients Needed for Heat Protecting Hairspray
The ingredients I find useful and use to make my homemade natural and nourishing heat protecting hairspray are a cup of pure organic aloe juice, a forth teaspoon of vitamin E oil, a forth cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, five drops each of chamomile and lavender oil and a cup of green tea. The particular ingredients I usually always have on hand, but if you do not they are easy to find at an organic whole foot grocery store near you.
The Reasons the Ingredients are Used
There are many reasons the ingredients I choose are used to make the homemade heat protecting hairspray. The aloe juice is used because it hydrates the hair and scalp while promoting hair growth and preventing dandruff. Aloe juice also smooths the hair, preventing frizz and heat damage. Vitamin E is used in the heat protecting hairspray because it prevents hair loss and gray hairs, keeps the scalp healthy, and adds shine and silkiness to each strand of hair and seals moisture into the hair. The reason lemon juice is added is due to the nutrients it contains that protects and heals against hair damaged due to hot stylish tools and hair styling products. Lemon juice also adds volume to the hair while protecting it from harsh environmental factors such as the sunshine, air pollution and dry and cold air. Lemon juice even acts as a preservative in the spray to help keep it from going bad. The chamomile and lavender oil is useful in the spray because it adds a love scent to it along with antioxidants that protect the hair. Green tea is used due to its nourishing and protecting abilities it has on the hair and scalp. Green tea even has the ability to strengthen brittle hair so less split ends and breakages occur.
Making the Heat Protecting Spray
The way I make the heat protecting hairspray is by pouring all the ingredients into a clean empty hairspray bottle. Then I give the ingredients a good shake together. After, I spray the heat protecting spray directly into freshly clean dampened hair and comb it in to make sure every strand of hair is coated. Next, I blow dry and style my hair as usual with my heat styling tools. Once my hair is dry and styled it feels so soft and shiny without any damaged caused by the heat of my styling tools. I use this spray daily and it not only protects my hair, but also keeps it soft, well nourished and full of life naturally.
The Conclusion for the Heat Protecting Hairspray
Stay away from the heat protecting hairsprays you can purchase at a hair salon and stick to make a homemade natural one right at home that will provide protections and beautifying benefits to your hair naturally. Your hair will thank you and so will the earth with this earth friendly homemade heat protecting hairspray.
