Easy Homemade Hair Setting Lotions

For a good hair style setting lotions and lacquers are used. Beer, milk, gelatine and lemon are some of the things generally used as setting lotions. Beer is probably the most effective and popular product. Simply wet the hair with beer before setting. It gives added beauty and helps the set to stay in. Milk can also be used in the same way.

Lemon juice makes a good setting lotion too, and is especially good for fair or greasy hair. Squeeze a lemon and use the strained juice to obtain a very firm set. It makes the hair soft and shiny. Lemon juice dries very fast and can be used as an effective hair lacquer. To make a lemon hair lacquer, cut a lemon in pieces and boil it with a cup of water until it remains only half a cup. Strain and
use. A few drops of alcohol (or Vodka) should be added to preserve it.

Gelatine is a protein agent, and is excellent for a setting lotion, giving body to ]imp hair. Dissolve 2 tablespoons gelatine in 2 cups of boiling water, and use it as the final rinse.

To use sugar as a lacquer, simply add one tablespoon sugar to a glass of boiling water and when it has dissolved use it as a setting lotion by putting it into a spray bottle.
