What Is Hairspray Made of?

Answer

Most hairsprays are composed of industrial polymers, alcohol, plasiticers, surfactants, and hydrocarbons. The more common polymers are polyvinylpyrrolidine, and polydimethylsiloxane. In plastic hairsprays, they add in copolymers such as vinyl acetate,and maleic anhydride. For some more natural hairsprays, they use gum arabic, and gum tragacanth as the polymers instead. The plasiticer is aminomethyl propanol. The surfactant is Benzalkonium chloride. There are a few other ingredients, but it really depends on the hairspray for the other more specific ingredients.

Hairspray are made of polymers such as polyvinylpyrrolidone, and polydimethylsiloxane. Solvents like vegetable gums dissolved in alcohol are some of the natural polymers that are also used to make hairspray. Hairspray keep the hair stiff or in a certain style.
All hairspray is different but most are composed of a strong polymer (the 'glue') and a solvent. Most of the time alcohol is used as the solvent. The idea is that the solvent evaporates leaving a fine layer of the polymer.
