Two Ingredient Hairspray




My regular store bought hairspray smells chemically and is bad for my hair. After using it, my hair gets all stiff. I could just buy a different brand of hairspray, but I wanted to make my own. This hairspray only has two ingredients and costs about $10 bucks to make.

Step 1: You Need

For this project, you need:


Coconut Milk Anti Breakage Serum (long name, right? :) It's super good for your hair, smells awesome, and it's like 8 dollars, but it lasts for forever)

Hairspray Holder (I got mine at Dollar Tree for one dollar.)

Step 2:

Fill the holder halfway with lukewarm water.

Step 3:

Squirt in 3 drops of coconut milk. Then, take your finger and put a tiny glob of vaseline on it. Vaseline helps repair split ends and strengthes your hair.

Step 4:

Add more water, add two more drops of coconut milk, and shake the bottle.

Step 5:

And there you go. Two ingredients, two minutes, instant hairspray. My hair is already looking great and smells good too! Add a tulle bow or tag and give away as presents. Please comment and vote for me in hair and make up contest! Thanks!

    Good job but doesn't the Vaseline make it hard to remove?

    Thank you! No, if you only use a small amount of Vaseline, and if you mix it really well, it should dissolve or just float. I haven't had any problems so far, and I've made this many times?
