DIY Hairspray-Strong/Medium Hold

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

Supplies:

  • Spraying bottle
  • Funnel

*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.

How To:

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.

Tips:

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.

Some Benefits of Rosemary Essential Oil:

  • Prevents hair loss/baldness.
  • Improves hair growth (increase in “rapid” hair growth).
  • Increase in microcirculation of the scalp, which promotes healing.
  • Improves the ability of hair to resist traction.
  • Improves memory and helps people be more alert.

Some Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil:

  • Natural Perfume
  • Improves mood
  • Supports brain
  • Antimicrobial
  • Antioxidant
  • May prevents allergic reactions
