Homemade Spray Hair Gel - Health Starts in the Kitchen

I’m always searching for nontoxic hair and body products. Often the super fabulous, all natural product lines are expensive, but I’m on a budget… I love experimenting to come up with amazing products you can make in your own kitchen, with all natural, healthy stuff!!

My hair is naturally wavy… I don’t use any “product” on my hair and most often it’s just allowed to air dry. I missed a hair gel that would help to define my waves and keep the frizzies away. This recipe is really easy and I love how it defines my waves (even boosts my waves to curls!) My hubby even uses it on his short hair to give him light styling control!!

  1. Would it be okay to simply mix the Aloe gel with water, and not use the gelatin at all? If so, in what proportion would I mix it? Thank you.

  2. You’re so awesome! I do not suppose I’ve read through a single thing like this before.
    So nice to find somebody with genuine thoughts on this topic.
    Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This web site is something that is needed on the web, someone with some originality!

    1. No I haven’t. I do have a after sun spray that’s similar that we use after hot days to cool down our skin.

    1. Extracts, are essential oils dissolved in ethyl alcohol, glycerol or propylene glycol and may also contain water, a sweetening agent or a food color. – I wouldn’t recommend using them in my spray gel sorry.

  3. Hi Hayley,
    I’m really excited about the homemade spray gel. However, is there a way that I can keep it from congealing between use? I had made it a head of time and when I went to use it it had gelated. I warmed it in the microwave and it was fine. Is this what I will need to do to use it as a spray? Thanks.
