- spray bottle
- kosher salt
- aloe juice
- carrier oil
- vanilla oil
- The amount of each ingredient depends on the size of the bottle. I used a small travel-size bottle in the pic above, so my sizes will reflect that.
- I took a very small handful of salt and put it in the bottom of the bottle.
- Using a funnel, I added 2/3 of aloe juice. Mine is from Trader Joes, but try any health store or online.
- Next, I added three drops of vanilla oil and half a teaspoon of carrier oil. Think jojoba, argan, or castor oil (coarse hair), or many more.
- Fill the rest of the bottle with filtered water, secure the top and shake.
- Spray damp or dry hair. Scrunch hair with an old tshirt to help with frizziness.
- This works well to add texture and volume to hair.
- This spray is awesome for heat or no heat waves.
- If you have stick-straight hair, pretty much no spray will make it wavy, if you don't have natural wave to it, so that's why I suggest using this in conjunction to waves or curls.
- If you find your spray nozzle is clogged, shake your spray, and add more water, or consider skipping the oil. I have also added small, clean pebbles or rocks to help break up the spray. I also have poured a little into my hand and dispersed through hair.
- This will keep for a couple of months.
- Since salt is drying, be sure to use a good clarifying shampoo on hair to remove any residue and condition afterwards.
Beachy waves in my hair--just missing the actual beach. ;)
