Make your own Hair spray

This recipe is so easy and you have the ingredients right in your pantry. This stuff really works, really holds, is really cheap and it contains no harsh chemicals. You may need to do a little bit of adjusting until you find the ratio that works best for you (maybe only 3 teaspoons of sugar for super fine hair or 5 for coarse hair…).
Ingredients
1 Cup water
1 Tbs. Sugar
1 Tbs Vodka or rubbing alcohol ( optional, acts as a preservative)
Spray bottle that produces a fine mist
3-5 drops of essential oil if you would like it scented

Directions:
Place water in a pot and boil. Once boiling turn off heat and add sugar. Stir to dissolve. Let cool add alcohol, cool and add essential oils and place in spray bottle .
To use: Spray bottle should be on its finest mist. Lightly spray a thin coat of hairspray on hair once dry you can reapply. Warning: don’t just go crazy with it or else you will end up with a wet head. Do apply in very thin coats.
Be sure to label the contents of your bottle.
