Hair products that have been made without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and artificial chemicals are considered "organic." You can also rely on organic products if you are against animal testing. With the growing research linking certain chemicals found in non-organic foods and everyday household products, more and more consumers are making a conscious effort to purchase organic whenever possible.
Hair sprays have traditionally been filled with harsh chemicals that mask the hair to give it the shine and look of moisturized hair, but they don't actually moisturize the hair from the inside out. An organic, natural hair spray will cut out the chemicals and give your hair the raw nutrients it needs to stay moisturized and healthy!
As mentioned above, natural ingredients in our hair products are so important and it can sometimes be hard to find real organic products (many brands can get away with using the word).
Below I have listed 3 certified organic hair sprays suitable for curly hair!
The name speaks for itself! Mielle organics is a brand built on the importance and benefits of organic ingredients for the hair. This style-setting spray is perfect for those who like to use heat for manipulating their curl pattern with flexi-rods, perm-rods, curlformers or curling irons. It has been made with organic natural ingredients like mongongo oil, sweet almond oil and grape seed oil.
Obia Naturals is a brand that creates natural, PH balanced, non-toxic and herbal-based products. Their 'Curl Hydration Spray' can be used on dry hair to revive your style and is safe for those with colored hair. Its main natural ingredients (also vegan) include purified water, Argan Oil and Vitamin E. It will not give you the hold of a traditional hairspray, but it does help to refresh 2nd or 3rd day hair without additional styling product or buildup.
Jessicurl is another beloved brand within the curly hair community, and is one of the few that offers scent-free versions of their scented products! All products are cruelty-free, gluten-free and vegan. The 'Awe Inspiralling Spray' is an amazing natural curl booster that's great for after gym sessions. Ingredients include some of our favorites, like aloe vera juice, jojoba seed oil and epsom salt.
If you want to explore the organic hair care route definitely give the 3 products and brands mentioned above a try and I guarantee you will see a difference in your hair's health, all while protecting your health and the environment.
