The First Hair Spray for Native Americans

Before the emergence of modern hair products like hairspray, Native Americans employed resourceful techniques to maintain their hairstyles. One such method involved the use of clay as a natural hair spray. Native American tribes across the continent had their own variations of this practice, but the underlying principle was consistent. To style their hair, individuals would take a small amount of wet clay, often mixed with natural earth paints for decorative purposes, and apply it to their hair. The clay served as an adhesive, helping to mold the hair into the desired shape or keep it in place. Once applied, the clay would be allowed to dry naturally, effectively 'freezing' the hair in the desired style. This approach not only helped them achieve intricate and ornate hairstyles but also represented a connection to the earth and its resources. It's a testament to the resourcefulness and adaptability of Native American cultures, showcasing how they utilized their surroundings to meet  everyday needs and present themselves in a way that was harmonious with the environment.
