Hair Spray for Fine Hair
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 C Water

Quantity:  Makes about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of Lemon Hair Spray.

To Make:  Chop up the Lemon in a wooden bowl so that you don't lose any of the juice.  Add the chopped Lemon to the water in the top of a double boiler.  Simmer the mixture until the liquid has been reduced by half.  Strain through cheesecloth or fine silk cloth and pour the liquid into a bottle that will fit a pump-type sprayer.  A washed and rinsed Windex bottle will do for your spray container.  Add 1/2 cup of water to thin the mixture if necessary.

To Use:  Spray your hair with this mixture whenever necessary.  Since it is gentle, with not alcohol or chemical additions, it can be used on children's hair too.  Should be made fresh every few days and kept in the fridge between uses.

Tip No. 1:  One cup of the Lemon Hair Spray can be preserved with 1 oz. or more of Bay Rum.

Tip No. 2:  Substitute an Orange for the Lemon for dry hair.
