DIY Hair Styling Setting Spray

It’s time for something different.

To my delight, I finally found a basic recipe for homemade hairspray! yipiee!

Citrus-Lavender Hairspray

  • 1 whole orange (for dark hair) or lemon (for light hair), preferably organic (to avoid having pesticides in your hairspray)
  • 2 cups distilled or filtered water
  • 2-3 tablespoons high proof vodka (or other clear grain alcohol)
  • 6-8 drops of lavender essential oil

Step 1

Cut a whole orange or lemon into wedges and combine with 2 cups water in a small pot. Boil over medium high heat until liquid is reduced by half.

Step 2

Strain liquid into a measuring cup. If you boiled too much liquid out add water until you have 1 cup. Allow citrus juice to cool.

Step 3

Combine alcohol and essential oils in a small bowl, swirl to mix, then add to the cup of citrus juice. (Feel free to experiment with your favorite essential oil or leave them out altogether.)

Step 4

Use a funnel to pour into a spray bottle with a mist bottle or a spray bottle and shake to combine ingredients. Shake before each use.

A Few Things to Note

  • This is not a maximum hold hairspray that will freeze a prom up-do or 80’s bangs, it’s a flexible hold formula.
  • Use an orange for darker hair, and lemons only if your  hair is light-colored. There is a chance the lemon can lighten your hair when exposed to sunlight.

 

Grab the orange or lemon sitting in your fruit bowl and give this hairspray a whirl!

Keep Chuckling!!

Hair Washing Tips

Hello beautiful people, as we all love our hair but we still deal with same problem i.e. Hairfall. So I have come to your rescue, trust me this is an awesome tip to wash you hair which leads to less hairfall and its tried and executed. 🙂

Note – Even guys can try this, trust me I am not gender biased 😛

Don’t worry I will clarify the steps with basic logic (not biological lol).

I also call it “Reverse Washing” 😛

Steps for Reverse Washing

  1. Wet your beautiful hair
  2. Apply your favorite conditioner first, including the roots! (yes you read it correctly conditioner first)
  3. Wait for a min or two
  4. Very important Note “Do not wash your hair now”
  5. Directly apply your favorite shampoo like you already do
  6. Now you can wash your hair completely
Drying Tips
Do not rub your towel on your hair, just press it on your hair so that it can absorb the extra water and let your hair air dry.
Combing tips
Never comb wet hair, if its highly essential i.e. you need to be somewhere, then let your fingers gently gather a few of them and clutch/pin them.
Just try this, I am positive you will thank me (for doing that do let me know in the comments below or on twitter)
Benefits
  • Nowadays all shampoos contain chemicals , applying a conditioner before shampoo prevents the chemicals in the shampoo to directly attack your hair or scalp.
  • Conditioner conditions your hair, so its kind of conditioning your scalp and hair before applying shampoo.
  • By trying this I have found out that my hair feel more softer, more shiny and have less hairfall.
So, take care!
