Home Hair Care Recipes - Hairspray Recipe and Detangler Recipe

Home hair care recipes for homemade hairspray and homemade hair detangler are quite easy to make. Learn how to make your own hair care products with this step by step video and hairspray recipe page.

Have you seen the prices of hair care products recently? A decent detangler will set you back a few dollars, but what is in it really? What makes it so much different (and more expensive) that a standard conditioner? Well, I decided to make it easier on our budget and make these two products myself. Let me share with you my homemade hairspray recipe and detangler recipe.

Making Homemade Hairspray

Let's get started with the hairspray recipe first. You'll need:
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons rubbing alcohol
  • 8-10 drops essential oil
  • Spray bottle
  • Put your hot water into a bowl. I used my electric kettle to heat the water. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Add the rubbing alcohol and stir in the essential oil. I use tea tree oil in my personal care products, mainly because I like the fragrance, but you can use any essential oil you enjoy. Funnel it into a spray bottle and enjoy!

    With all home hair care recipes, it's a good idea to shake before use. This hairspray works fantastic! There are some ingredients you can swap if you desire. Try substituting vodka for the rubbing alcohol, or another clear grain alcohol.

    If you dislike the sugar, make a reduction of a whole lemon and use it instead. Simply cut your lemon into quarters. Add the lemon and 2 cups of water to a pot; boil until the liquid has been reduced to 1 cup. Strain into a measuring cup, and if you're a little short, add in water to make a cup. Let cool. Add your rubbing alcohol and essential oil.

    Some moms skip all the other ingredients except the sugar and the water and swear by it! Spray on with a fine mist. Let dry, and reapply if needed.

    Making Homemade Hair Detangler

    Now let's make some hair detangler. Here are your supplies:
  • Hair conditioner
  • Water
  • Spray bottle
  • Fill the spray bottle about 2/3rds with water. Add in your favorite hair conditioner to fill the spray bottle. Shake well. Spray as needed. It's almost silly how simple this is, and it works as good as any detangler on the market.
