Thread: DIY Hairspray

  1. #1

    Default DIY Hairspray

    Thinking of cutting back on the chemicals you use on your hair this new year or simply just cutting back? Whatever the case may be, I am going to teach you how to make your own hairspray right in your own kitchen!

    What you'll need:
    Empty Spray Bottle
    Sugar
    Water

    Medium/Strong Hold Hairspray:
    1. Pour in 1/2 cup of water in pot and wait for it to boil.
    2. Put in 3 tsps of sugar and stir until it's completely dissolved.
    3. Pour liquid into empty spray bottle.
    *OPTIONAL: To add a nice fresh smell, simmer a few slices of oranges in the water first, take them out and then add in the sugar.

    TIP: Since this isn't regular hairspray, you're going to want to spray it on your hair in layers. Spray on one thin layer at a time, let it dry, spray on a second layer, let it dry, so on and so forth.

    This hairspray should be stored in the refrigerator and will only last for about a week , after which, you'll have to make a new one. To extend the shelf life to 2 weeks, add a tablespoon of vodka to the mixture.

    wouldn't your hair be sticky? i don't use hair spray anymore. used to use the cheapest kind. you could bounce a ball off my hair!!lol but that was the style back in the sixties!
    stopped using hair spray in the 70's. my hair is now long, down below my waist if i had a waist! have you tried your homemade hair spray? does it work? just wondering.

    That's very interesting, but just be sure to stay inside on the days you use this. I imagine the bugs would find you too enticing. XD

    @Vencasand: Yes I tried it myself and yes, it does work.
    @Blondie:Actually not, unless you will go to a bug farm or bee farm.

    Is there anything you can use besides sugar? That's what I would want to know.

    Lemon juice is used by some people. I don't find any DIY hairsprays work at all though.
