Can you boil water? If the answer is yes then you have the skills required to make hairspray from home! Not only is it simple to make but it is also inexpensive and made with natural ingredients you probably already have in your home. By making your own hairspray you will be avoiding all the nasty chemicals found in store bought hairsprays.
I honestly do not wear hairspray very often but when I do I want to use a product that is natural and non-toxic. What better way to know exactly what I’m putting on my hair then by making those products myself. I discovered how easy it is to make a homemade & natural hairspray and best of all it works great! Now I’m sharing how simple it is to make hairspray with you and of course a cute label to go on your bottle because I love to make cute labels for everything!
- 1 cup water
- 4 teaspoons white sugar
- 1 tablespoon high proof alcohol like vodka
- 10 drops essential oil of your preference
- Recommended essential oils: Geranium essential oil, Lavender essential oil, Peppermint essential oil, Rosemary essential oil and Clary Sage essential oil. Avoid citrus oils (Lemon, Lime...) as they can lighten your hair if exposed to UV light.
- In a small saucepan, combine sugar and water.
- Bring water to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved.
- Remove saucepan from heat and cool.
- Add essential oil and high proof alcohol to sugar water.
- Pour cooled sugar water mixture into an 8 oz fine mist spray bottle.
- Shake well before each use.
- Customize this recipe for the perfect hold for you: Use more or less sugar depending on how strong you want the hold to be.
- Add any combination of the essential oils recommended as long as the drops equal 10. (2 of each recommened essential oil, 8 of one + 2 of another...)
