Making your own herbal hairspray is easy with essential oils and only takes a few simple ingredients you already have at home. It can easily be customizable to your favorite essential oils and to your preferred hold.

The essential oils used in the recipe were chosen because they have benefits that have been proven to help your hair and scalp.
