I have always dreamed of making my own hairspray that would be chemical free and would not harm my hair in any way. Today, I finally made it right in my kitchen and I love it!
This hairspray prevents flyaways, makes hair stronger, and holds hair together well! It works just like any other store-bought hairspray, means you can brush through your hair afterwards if needed!
It is super-duper easy to make! Get inspired and try making one yourself! I hope you will love it as much as I do! 😆
Ingredients for Strong Hold Hairspray:
- Water- 1 cup (preferably filtered)
- Sugar- 3 Tablespoons of unrefined sugar (controls hold’s strength)
- Salt – 2 teaspoons of Himalayan sea salt (adds extra texture to hair, and helps nozzle in a spraying bottle not to get clogged easily)
- Rosemary Essential Oil (optional)- 1-2 drops
- Lavender Oil (optional) – 1 drop
- Spraying bottle
*Add only 1 tablespoon for the same amount of water and salt above to get a medium hold, the rest of the ingredients stays the same.
Bring 1 cup of water to a boiling point, add 2 Tbsp of sugar and 2 tsp of salt.
Once it cools down, pour it into a spray bottle. *I used a funnel to make the pouring easier. *To speed up a cooling process place the bowl inside another bowl with ice cold water.
Add 1-2 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil and 1 drops of Lavender Essential Oil. Close the bottle and shake.
*Be careful not to put too much of essential oil into it as it may get your hair greasy.
I often spray this hairspray into a palm of my hand and then apply it to my hair with wet hands. When spraying it, I pick up chunks of hair and spray it under the hair for the volume.
