Eco-Friendly Hairstyling Tips for Earth Day

Eco-friendly hairstyle tips from celebrity stylist David Babaii.

David Babaii and actress Kate Hudson recently launched an eco-friendly hair care line, David Babaii for WildAid, that not only is made with natural, good-for-the-Earth (and you) products, it also gives 10% of its revenue to WildAid, the wildlife conservation organization.


Get Curls and Texture Without Styling Tools

For long hair, follow these steps:

After shampooing, spray your entire head with the David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray, scrunch and/or twist sections, then allow to air dry. Once dry, if added texture or volume is desired, flip your head over and back and give it a quick shake. To set it all in place, lightly spray your hair with hair spray.

For short hair, follow these steps:

Towel dry freshly washed hair thoroughly. Spray your entire head with a Beach Spray and allow to air dry. When hair is dry, apply David Babaii for WildAid Molding Paste and arrange texture until you are happy with the look.

Keep Your Hair Fresh Without a Shampoo

In order to avoid excess oil or buildup (and save on water use), sprinkle a bit of baby powder throughout the hair acting as a dry shampoo, which helps eliminate oil and leaves a fresh scent throughout the day. Alternatively, you can use a damp cosmetic cotton pad and dab it around the hairline and roots to eliminate any excess oil. If you wish, mist the pad with a light oil-free fragrance or squeeze a few drops from a fresh lemon to give hair that fresh smell.

Wash Your Hair the Night Before and Wake Up with a Style

Wash your hair the night before to save time and electricity. When hair is slightly damp, place all of your hair in a messy ponytail — be creative and twist sections tight or loose to achieve various textures. When your pony tail is secured, spray with a Beach Spray and sweet dreams. When you awake, undo the pony tail for an effortless but eco-chic look.


Use Items Around the House to Achieve a Glamorous Look

— A new and unused toothbrush is a great household product; it can be used to back-brush close to the scalp area for volume or even sweep away those fly-a-ways. Going back in time, a soda can will do the trick of setting hair and achieving large lopped curls.

— Don't discard those dryer sheets. There is usually some fragrance left over to wipe your combs and brushes to not only freshen them but help with static as well.

— Use ribbons, scarves, and other items you have lying around (or even ones that wrapped a gift!) to add some jazz to your 'do. A ribbon can make a regular ponytail flirty and a scarf can make just about any look more eco-chic. This all helps to reduce the amount of household waste and makes for a great environmentally friendly choice for DIY hair.
