Why make your own hairspray?

Making your own hairspray is kind to your hair and the environment. It doesn’t contain aerosol propellants or artificial fragrances so it is also safe for people with allergies too. It does not contain alcohol or silicones and nothing that is harsh on your hair so perfect for the curly girl method also. There is no need to worry about any more harsh ingredients!

How do you use sugar water hair spray?

This Hair spray is made easily using just sugar and water and actually works! It sprays on wet but actually dries crispy just like hairspray. If your spray on dry hair it takes a little while to dry fully around 20 mins depending on how much you spray. I find spraying whilst styling along with other products makes my hair crispier just like hairspray and adds hold. When learning how to make hairspray you can vary the amount of sugar to make your hairspray stronger or less so.

When wet the sugar hairspray does leave you hands sticky but once dry this disappears.

How do you use hairspray on curly hair ?

The great thing about a spray is that you can use it at any point in the drying process to. As your hair is drying if you feel like it needs a bit more hold you can spray directly on to the the hair without touching it. This means you will not add any more frizz to your hair but just add more definition.
