All Natural Hairspray

Hairspray has the worst chemical content.  My Mum used to use it repeatedly and I remember choking on it overtime she sprayed.  It is so nasty, and this natural alternative is so simple and really does work.


  • 1.5 cups filtered water (boil if you can’t filter)
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar (darker ones don’t really work here)IMG_0654
  • 1 tablespoon of high proof alcohol  – I used Rum
  • 10-15 drops of essential oil of choice
  1. Boil water and dissolve sugar in it.
  2. Allow to cool to room temp and add alcohol and essential oils if using.
  3. Store in spray bottle and use as regular hair spray.

Notes: This will last a long time in an airtight container.  You can add more sugar for stronger hold, but don’t add too much or your hair will be sticky.
