Make Your Own Natural Homemade Hair Spray

I’m always on the lookout for natural alternatives to chemical-laden products that I use every day. For example, one of my favorite hair styling tools is hairspray, but the aerosol cans are not eco-friendly and contain harsh chemicals like alcohol, acetone, methylchloroisothiazolinone (a preservative), and methylisothiazolinone (another preservative).

There’s no need to use these kinds of sprays since there are so many more natural options out there! Instead, try this Homemade Hair Spray Recipe.

DIY hairspray recipe for hair

I have been using the same hair spray for years now. I always see commercials advertising new kinds but never buy them because my old one works just fine. But recently, there’s been a problem with my old favorite, so I’ve started looking into other options to find something that will work better than what I’m currently using.  One of the first things I found was this recipe for natural homemade hair spray, and it seemed perfect! It uses ingredients that are all things you can find in your kitchen cabinet, including water! The best part is that it doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals like some store-bought hair sprays, which is important.
