Make Your Own Hairspray

Making your own hairspray is a cinch if you’ve got the talent for boiling water, and, your sugar bowl is at hand.  This recipe is particularly useful for people with skin sensitivities who would normally breakout from the sometimes harsh chemicals in over the counter hairsprays.

    This actually WORKED! Not that I doubted you fine people of course, but it worked! This was good for the “beachy hair look.” Not strong enough to wear every day for work, but perfect for spraying my post-swim hair into a beachy hair look.
