I’ve often been asked for a natural alternative to hair spray, after trying a few different recipes this one stood out. It’s not too heavy but tames fly aways effectively whilst nourishing your hair.

The essential oils in this spray give it a nice scent and have specific properties that improve the texture of your hair instead of drying it out.

Rosemary Essential Oil helps to improve dry, frizzy hair and subtly boosts volume. This woodsy invigorating scent also freshens hair.

Lavender Essential Oil smells lovely, adds a healthy shine to hair and helps to improve texture, it’s also an antiseptic.

Rose Geranium Essential Oil helps to cut through grease and balances oil production. This uplifting floral scent works well with rosemary and lavender.
