Frizzy and Tangled Hair ? Make Your Own Homemade Hairspray


Are you tired of frizzy and tangled hair? Hair spray can be a wonderful solution for you. It not only keeps your unmanageable hair in place, but also helps you maintain your hairstyles for long. However, it might be a bit tough to spend on a hair spray every month. Why don’t make your own hair spray at your home and give your wallet a relief? Yes, it is extremely easy to prepare and at the same time pocket-friendly too. Besides, when you apply a commercially available hair spray, your hair is exposed to harsh chemicals and alcohol. Both of these are highly damaging for your tresses as well as the environment. Therefore, it is always good to switch to the DIY hair sprays to make your hair healthy and frizz-free. Check out the options below:


Homemade Hair Spray

1. Regular Homemade Hair Spray

Ingredients:

  • Sugar – 2 teaspoons
  • Rubbing alcohol – 2 tablespoons
  • Water – (1/2) cup
  • Essential oil – 1-2 drops
  • Spray bottle

Method:

Pour the water into a bowl and bring it to boil. Once done with it, take the bowl out of the heat and add the remaining ingredients to that. Stir well and finally shift the entire mixture to the spray bottle.

Sugar is the most important ingredient in this spray that manages your hair. Hence, you can increase or decrease its amount depending upon the desired strength of the spray. The essential oil is an optional item here and is used just for fragrance.


2. Homemade Hair Spray for Colored Hair

Ingredients:

  • Water – 2 cups
  • Lemon / Orange – 1 (sliced)
  • Sugar – 2 teaspoons
  • Rubbing alcohol – 2 tablespoons
  • Strainer
  • Spray Bottle

Method:

Color-treated hair can easily get affected by regular hair sprays. If you can use citrus water in place of plain water, you can prevent your hair color from fading away. Hence, take the lemon or orange and slice it up. Put the slices in a medium-sized bowl and pour the water into it. Now, boil the entire thing at least for half an hour so that the volume of the water becomes half. Add sugar and rubbing alcohol to the bowl and turn off the heat. Keep the bowl aside until the entire concoction gets cooled. Finally, strain it to obtain a fine liquid spray and fill up the spray bottle.

3. Homemade Sea Salt / Beach Hair Spray

Ingredients:

  • Sea Salt / Himalayan Salt – (1/2) teaspoon
  • Epsom Salt – 2 tablespoons
  • Water – 1 cup
  • Aloe vera gel – 1 teaspoon
  • Almond oil / jojoba oil – (1/2) teaspoon
  • Rubbing alcohol – 2 teaspoons
  • Essential oil – 1-2 drops
  • Spray bottle

Method:

At first, you need to heat up the water (do not boil) so that it becomes warm. Pour it into the empty spray bottle. Now, add rest of the ingredients to it one by one. Shake the bottle for a couple of minutes in order to dissolve the salts completely and you are done.

Usually, the rubbing alcohol used in these homemade sprays work as preservatives. You can store the spray bottles in refrigerators to make use of the content up to 3 weeks.
