How to Make Your Own Hairspray

Since exploring the no poo hair care method we have been testing out some hairspray recipes.   So far, I have found one that I absolutely love.  See the original post here.  I have been using this recipe for over a month now on my own hair, as well as on my daughters hair.  I have no complaints.  It is SO cheap and it works really well! It also smells wonderful–definite plus!

I’m sure you have access to some water and some sugar.  If you don’t have access to the essential oils, you can shop for them here.  The essential oils will help support your scalp and hair.  They also make it smell amazing!

I also tried making the hairspray without the essential oils.  It was totally doable, but I definitely prefer including the essential oils!

You can add more or less sugar depending on how tight of a hold you want for your hair.  Using the measurements from the original post works wonderful when I put my daughters hair in pony tails, but if you need a tighter hold go ahead and add another 1/2 teaspoon to your recipe.
