Remember when perms were the rage? And teased hair? Bangs a mile high? Aqua-net was their best friend, I’m sure.
Growing up in a home with two older twin sisters and my mom, we certainly had our fair share of hair accoutrements. Curling irons, sponge curlers, hot sticks, curlers, you name it, we had it (like every other American female). But in order to maintain all those elaborate coiffures, we had to pull out the big guns: hair gel, hair spray, mousse, and countless other goo that was popular in the early 90’s.
Don’t get me wrong. I like my hair styled. I like hairspray.
Its just that the long list of chemical names on the can has begun to scare me as we take baby steps toward a more natural lifestyle. What would make for a healthier option for me and my girls (and truth be told- my men…but that’s just between you and me)?
After some research, I found that the diy recipes consisted of the same basic ingredients. Sugar water.
What? Yes, it’s true.
Could it be any simpler?
If you’d like, you can make it with just two ingredients (sugar and water) like my friend did here. However, you will need to make it fresh every week though as it has no preservatives.
Since you’ve got the kettle out, make yourself a cup of tea.
Thanks for reading.
