Hairspray…back in the day I used so much hairspray that my room (and lungs) were covered in a sticky film. I do not use hairspray everyday anymore and when I do-I use a minimal amount. I have fine, pin straight hair so some product is necessary unless I want to look like a drowned rat.
While this did work well, it was a little too stiff for me and after about a week it went rancid. I am far too lazy to keep making more hairspray once a week #firstworldproblem
Homemade rosemary hairspray (from Organic Authority)
4 tsp sugar
1 cup distilled water
1 tbsp vodka
3-5 drops rosemary essential oil
Fine misting spray bottle
- Boil water in a sauce pan, once boiled-turn down to simmer
- stir in the sugar until dissolved
- add vodka
- allow mixture to cool
- add essential oil
- use a funnel to put mixture into your spray bottle
- good to go!
This works great, isn’t too stiff, and leaves no lingering odor on my hair.
