The many benefits of custom setting lotions offer are volume, hold and luminous shine, as well as control from fly-away hair while you set, blow-dry or style your hair.
Using these homemade Hair Lotion recipes, you can make your own lotions using ingredients from the kitchen.
By doing this, you can choose exactly what goes into your lotions, and make sure that your lotions do not contain anything you are allergic to. Also, for the purist, you can have preservative free lotions.
You would also have homemade hair lotions that are totally natural and affordable. You also should ensure that your ingredients are fresh before using them in your lotions.
Wash your hair and let partially air dry or blow dry it until just slightly damp. Apply setting lotion sparingly yet evenly, using a spray bottle. Comb the lotion carefully through your hair, and then style as usual with the dryer.
