I hate the way my hairspray smells, but I love the way it works. I used to use Aussie, which reminds me of grape Dimetapp. But that smell takes me back to high school, so I don't use it anymore.
I don't use a lot of hairspray, just a little to
control my bangs and give my locks a little texture. When I was talking to my sister about this, she told me that a friend of hers makes her own hairspray with lemons!
You will need:
- 2 lemons (or 2 oranges if you have dry hair)
- 4 cups of water
- A clean spray bottle
It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!
- Chop up the lemons (or oranges) in six pieces on a cutting board and add everything to boiling water (seeds, juice, and all).
- Simmer for one hour, then strain so no pulp, seeds, or skin enters the spray bottle.
- Let cool in refrigerator before use.
Since it's all natural, it's great for kids hair, too. This will keep for a week without refrigeration. And it smells great!
