Helmet Hair with Homemade Hairspray

You're all heard me talk about my obsession with the lemon-vodka hairspray I make. I mean, come on. How cool is that to tell people? It's been one of the most simple yet practical things I make at home that really does work.

The lemon vodka combo however isn't the strongest hold and might not keep together your prom curls or Mohawk. Instead, I have discovered the power of sugar hairspray! Almost identical in easiness, sugar hairspray will leave your hair rock hard. Like, think strong hold written all over the bottle. I'm sure you could Taylor it to your preference but the version I made, won't be used on me till my wedding day.

So, if you're looking for another option (or just happen to be allergic to lemons) check out this easy recipe!
