Natural Citrus Hair Spray

I hate to use conventional hair sprays because my hair feels stiff, and I always end up coughing from the fumes in the air when I spray it.  I always knew that the fumes were dangerous to breathe in, but now I know how dangerous they actually are for your health.  I knew from experimenting with many other of my homemade formulas that there had to be a safe natural way to make a healthy hair spray that wouldn't make my hair so stiff, and without the dangerous fumes.

I finally came up with a wonderful natural citrus hair spray for all hair types and lengths.  I've been using it for a few weeks now and I love the way my hair looks and feels. 

Natural Citrus Hair Spray


1 whole organic orange (for dark hair) or 1 Organic lemon (for light hair)
2-3 T. vodka 
6-8 drops Essential oil - Lavender,Vanilla or your favorite scent


1) Cut a whole orange or lemon into wedges and combine with 2 cups of spring water in a small pot.  Boil over medium heat until liquid is reduced by half.

2) Strain liquid into a measuring cup. You should have 1 cup.  Add more water if needed. Cool.

3) Combine vodka with essential oil in a bowl and add the citrus juice.

4) Pour into a spray bottle with a fine mist and shake.  Shake before each use.

This formula makes a flexible hold hairspray.
