      Wow, a homemade hairspray? Neat, but this worries me a bit because of the citrus factor - citrus of all kinds can affect one's sensitivity to the sun. For example, lemon juice and sunlight will cause a bleaching affect, citrus oils such as grapefruit, lemon, orange, etc. applied topically on the skin increases the skin's sensitivity to UV rays (easier to get sunburned). I am wondering how this infusion process with a real orange might or might not cause issues as I mentioned above. I could be wrong, it's just a curious thought I had while reading this. Interesting idea though. :) Have you tried this txgammi?
