Beachy waves are one of the most sought after hair styles during the summer time, yet are usually best achieved when after going to the beach (hence the name)! It’s a shame because I love the way my locks look after a dip in the ocean, but going to the beach and swimming everyday just isn’t reasonable… for obvious reasons. As I was trying (and failing) to achieve this look with my curling iron, I had an epiphany. Why not just make my own salt spray to get my hair those waves I am longing for?
This DIY sea salt spray is not only super easy to make, but will leave you with soft & beautiful beach hair.
- Step 1: Gather your supplies! You will need one empty spray bottle (which you can get at your local drugstore), 1 cup of water, 1 teaspoon of sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil, a could drops of tea tree oil (optional), and a dollop of conditioner (also optional).
- Step 2: Add your water and your sea salt to your spray bottle and shake together so the salt dissolves.
- Step 3: Add your coconut oil to the bottle as well.
- Step 4: Lastly, you can add your optional “add-ons”. The conditioner will help keep your hair soft (as the salt can be drying), and the tea tree oil is great if you have a normally oily scalp!
