Homemade Rosemary-Infused Hairspray

Author www.TexasHomesteader.com


  • 1/2 Cup Filtered Water
  • 3 One-inch sprigs Fresh Rosemary
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Rubbing Alcohol (as a preservative)


  1. Measure 1/2 cup filtered water into a microwave-safe container and heat 30-45 seconds until hot.  Stir in your sprigs of fresh rosemary.

  2. Allow the rosemary to steep in the water for at least an hour. 

    Then strain the rosemary pieces from the water and place infused water in a microwavable container and heat about 30-45 seconds.

    Stir in a Tablespoon of granulated sugar until it is fully dissolved.

    Allow mixture to cool completely.

  3. When mixture is cool, stir in two tablespoons of rubbing alcohol to use as a preservative.

  4. Pour mixture into repurposed spray bottle.  I use an empty hairspray pump bottle since it already sprays in tiny droplets, which are best for your homemade hairspray.

    To use, spray hair lightly and allow to dry.  If a stronger hold is needed apply a second time and allow to dry.

    NOTE:  For extra hold formula, increase the sugar to 2 Tablespoons
