    I’m looking for natural ingredients that will give the hair hold and volume. Having a hard time finding any. Ideas?

    What is your definition of “natural”?

    If at all you decide to let go of ‘natural’, try Acudyne series and the one which suits u best.

    Tier one or two, preferably. I’ve made sea salt sprays, which has been OK, but sometimes can be a little drying.

    Care to elaborate on what tier one or two natural’s are? I rememebr reading it somewhere but I have no clear memory of it.

    @AuroraBorealis - In our natural formulating course we use the following to describe types of natural formulating.

    Tier 4 - Greenwashing
    Tier 3 - Following a natural standard (like COSMOS or the Whole Foods list)
    Tier 2 - Following the USDA organic standard
    Tier 1 - Directly from nature (e.g. coconut oil)
    Hope that helps.

    try using soluble starch, if you can find any that meets the criteria for tier 1 or 2
