As someone who moves around a lot, I usually don't have room to bring products like hairspray with me, and I hate having to shell out money for storebought spray when I know I won't use it all before I move again. I love the idea of making your own; it would really make my life a lot easier.

This is such an interesting idea! I'll have to try it as soon as my current hairspray runs out.

Wow! I never would have even thought to make my own hairspray. I love the idea and I think my daughters will as well. They have pretty thick hair and I'm wondering if this spray would hold a style for them. Does it leave any sticky residue where it contains sugar? Also do you think it hold up in humidity? I can't wait to try this! I've never purchased essential oils but I think I might be soon!

Great post. I've been using homemade hairspray for the past several years and for me it works! I use rubbing alcohol instead of 'alcohol', only because I would rather drink the true alcohol. Lol. Anyway, I will try some orange and grapefruit EO'S. I currently use Rosemary and Lavender.

So the rubbing alcohol does work? I do not have any other alcohol in the house and I do not buy hairspray because of the harmful ingredients in it. There are times when I really need to but I don't. I do not like the sticky stiff feel either. Is this homemade one sticky. My daughter wears it way too much so if I could get her to use natural one it would be great.I love rosemary and Lavender so I will have to try that and the orange and grapefruit sounds good too.

I really like to use natural hair sprays not only because they're better for your hair, but these types of sprays are better for the environment too! Plus, these are so easy to spray in your brush and brush through your hair or spray directly on your head without getting super sticky!

Store bought hairsprays can be so sticky and full of chemicals. This is a must-try for me for all the flyways I have during the humid weather!
