DIY Hair Spray
Make Your Own Hair Spray
For pennies...of course!
What you'll need:
Spray bottle with a fine mist spray (the mist part is very important)
1 cup of very hot water
1 1/2 tbsp of sugar (white or brown)
10-15 drops of essential oil(s) of your choice (I used lemon)
What you'll do:
Turn on your hot water faucet and let it run for a minute or two. Fill a 1 cup measuring cup with the very hot water.
Using a funnel, put your sugar into the spray bottle. Swirl the bottle around and around until sugar and water are mixed and sugar is dissolved. You could even put the bottle top on and shake gently.
With top off, let water/sugar mixture cool completely.
Add your essential oil(s) in and swirl or shake again. Fill the bottle the rest of the way with cool water. Swirl or shake again.
Viola! You are done. Enjoy!
This hairspray is strong; a little goes a long way so go easy at first.
Let it dry for 30 seconds before reapplying, if necessary.
Because the base is water, be careful to apply a light mist on your hair. You do not want to saturate.
Personal testimony on this hairspray; I used it for the first time and had to walk in the heat 30 minutes. I was dripping wet and the back of my hair was soaking wet. I was withered like crazy, but my bangs I'd sprayed back had stayed put ALL day and night!
Found this recipe over at A Blossoming Life. Check out this site because 1. She has some great info and recipes. 2. Her name is Amy, so she must be awesome!
