I am not a huge fan of chemical filled hairsprays and think they do more harm to the hair than good. Instead, I like to make a rosemary lavender hairspray and use that instead to help keep my hair in place and looking the best as possible. The spray is easy to make and smells wonderful. All you need are some basic natural ingredients and a clean spray bottle.
Natural Ingredients Needed
The ingredients I use to make my styling product are raw cane sugar, rosemary essential oil, lavender essential oil, distilled water and vodka or rum. The reason these ingredients are used is that they help your hairstyle stay in place while leaving it smelling beautiful. The herbs also help stimulate new hair growth, keep the scalp healthy and add strength and shine to your beautiful locks. You can find these natural ingredients at your local herbal shop or whole food grocery store. I tend too always have them on hand because I firmly believe in natural beauty and I am always creating new natural products to help keep me looking naturally gorgeous.
Creating the Handmade Product
To create the homemade styling spray all you need to do is fill your empty clean spray bottle up half way with warm distilled water. You can heat the distilled water up in a pot on the stove or in the microwave. Make sure the water is warm, touchable, and not boiling hot. If it is, it will melt the spray bottle. After, add in some sugar and allow it to dissolve into the bottle of distilled water. You will need one tablespoon of sugar for a light hold product, two tablespoons for a medium hold, or three tablespoons for a maximum hold styling product. I always do medium because I hate crunchy stiff locks. Next, add in ten drops of each essential oil and a tablespoon of vodka or rum. Then, place the sprayer onto the bottle and leave it sit on the container top for around an hour so the ingredients can mellow together. After, you can give the bottle a gentle shake to combine the ingredients together well. Then you will have a lovely product to use.
Once you have your hair styled just the way you want it just spray the product in and wait five minutes for it to dry in and so it can hold your gorgeous hairdo in just right. After, your locks will look beautiful and smell stunningly beautiful with a lovely rosemary lavender scent that is calming, yet uplifting.
If any of you are allergic to any of the ingredients used in this beauty remedy, you should not use it at all. I have experienced not allergic reactions from this hairdo product. I have only experienced the perfect stay put look. I hope those of you who make and use this too experience the something.
