Here is a recipe for self made hairspray, that smells wonderful and doesn’t have any chemicals or fragrances in it! Only thing you will need is an old spray bottle. I took my old face toner bottle. The salt in the spray is good for hair that gets greasy easily and it leaves the hair little bit crispy for styling.
For a bigger bottle you will need:
- 2,2 dl warm water
- 2 tea- spoons of sea salt
- 1 tea-spoon of olive oil
- 30 drops of lavender oil
Shake the bottle and apply it to damp or dry hair

My own hair used to got greasy very quickly before. I used to wash it very often and I used chemical shampoos. Than I started to cut down the amount of washing and I left the chemical shampoos all together. It has balanced out my scalp a lot! Because I don’t use chemical hair products, except on a rare occasion, I don’t even have a need for a heavier wash.
When you are used to chemical shampoos, your hair gets different when you leave them out. So you need to be patient with the “rehab process”! 🙂 It gets worse, before it gets better! This also happened to me for few weeks. My hair was down a lot! 🙂 Usually now I rinse my hair and scalp with warm water. You can get good natural shampoos and conditioners (some are soap bars, where there is less packaging needed) from Lush, if you don’t feel like making your own!
