Simple Hairspray Formula for Winter Flyaway Hair

Simple Hairspray Formula for Winter Flyaway Hair

The heat is on in our homes and offices, and the air outdoors is cold and dry. This can spell big trouble for our poor abused tresses: flyaway hair is everywhere! If your hair could use a little soothing help, try this one-ingredient hairspray. Unlike commercial hairspray products which often contain harmful toxic chemical ingredients, this is totally natural. It smells so fresh and clean, is super-simple to make and use, and works like a charm to tame those flyaway locks!

Find out the easy directions here:

INGREDIENTS
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
boiling water to cover

1. Place the rosemary in a coffee mug and cover with the boiling water. Allow to steep for several hours, then strain the liquid into a spray/spritz bottle.

2. Spritz onto dry hair.

Makes about 1 cup of spray. Will keep for a week, if refrigerated.

Thanks for this natural hairspray. I am a hair stylist and use better quality salon hairsprays. I can see how this could also be beneficial to clients who are scent sensitive. I had an art instructor who had asked her students not to use hairspray products in their hair when they attended her class. I will definitely recommend this one.
