Beauty DIY: Elle Sees' Sea Salt Spray for Beachy Waves



      Can I have just one more day off? How about you? Instead, I'm going to the beach for a week--on the blog that is. Join me!

First up, is my special recipe for DIY Sea Salt Spray.
 This is what I've used for years, 
and I've shared it a couple of times before on the blog.
This is good stuff and it works!
Enjoy!

I N G R E D I E N T S
   
-Inside clean spray bottle:
-Add 1 squirt of thick conditioner (I use Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle)
-In my original recipe, I used a pinch of coconut oil, but the conditioner listed works just as well! 
(I've noticed Pinterest Pinners using my recipe, 
but they aren't adding that the coconut oil 
needs to be melted, otherwise it won't spray!)
-1/4 c of Kosher salt (not table or rock salt)
-Add 1 squirt of hair gel 
-Fill rest of bottle with water.

D I R E C T I O N S
-Shake ingredients. 
-Spray on wet hair.
-Braid hair or put into bun or scrunch.
-Use t-shirt to scrunch waves--this prevents frizziness!
-Dry hair however you'd like.

*The salt gives texture.
*The gel gives hold.
*The conditioner or coconut oil softens the crunch & smells like coconut.
*The water is a base and dilutes the ingredients to make them spray-able.

  10. I so love beach hair and that's really all I sport in the summer since I spend so much time at the beach. There's really no fighting it. I wash and blow my hair while I'm there and within minutes voila it appears. Good thing I like the look or else I'd be mad. LOL.

    Love this to recreate the look in the city. Without that surf and sand it's hard to get in the city.

  13. Great idea adding the salt in there for the beachy look.

    I use a spray bottle on my hair as well, just to keep it moisturized. I use different combinations of water, conditioner, coconut oil and carrot oil.

  28. Do you have to use hair gel?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Anon: Yes, the hair gel provides hold to the waves. A very small amount is needed.
