While that formula worked, I wanted something different that I could make in a hurry. In the course of inventorying my cabinets the sugar bowl caught my eye. I thought about how sticky sugar is when it gets wet and the idea was born.
Feeling inspired, I performed an online search where I learned that others have used sugar to make hairspray. After reading several posts I decided to give it a try. I kept it simple, just two ingredients, sugar and water.
After my first attempt, I realized that I needed to increase the hold so I added more sugar to arrive at my current formula.
Here it is:
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 teaspoons sugar
- Boil the water
- Dissolve the sugar in the boiling water
- immediately remove from heat
- WHEN COOL ENOUGH TRANSFER INTO SPRAY BOTTLE
|This is my hair before using the hairspray.|

- The spray really works.
- I am not coating my head with toxins that are soaking into my scalp.
- It holds all day.
- It washes out easily.
- It does not pollute the environment.
- It doesn't damage my pillow cases.
- It is inexpensive to make.
- The formula can be modified to suit individual needs.
