    DIY Sea Salt Hair Spray

    sea salt beach hair

    Dipping your locks in the sea gives hair lots of volume and soft beach waves. But lets be honest, I’d like to get that beach hair without going into the sea every time. Sea salt hair spray is super easy with only a few ingredients. Save some money and get crafty! Beach hair, or as I like to refer to as ‘mermaid’ hair, is my favorite summer hairstyle. Mix this up in a clear spray bottle, give a good shake and you are good to go.

    Ingredients:

    1 tbs Hair Gel (add more if you want more control with frizzy-friends)

    1 tbs Coconut Oil* (extra virgin/unprocessed) – this will keep the hair conditioned from the drying effects of salt

    2 tbs Sea Salt (I like to grind mine to help dissolve faster)

    1 to 1-1/2 cups Hot Water

    Clear Spray Bottle (try the beauty section at the local pharmacy store)

    Thats it! Put it all together in the bottle and shake it up! I wrapped some seashell jewelry around the top so I know it’s beach related.

    I prefer to flip my head upside down and spray to dampen my hair. Then scrunch it up, massage my scalp to create some lift and stand up straight and use my fingers to twirl a few curls to create more controlled waves.

    *If you don’t have coconut oil, you can substitute with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Argan oil (which I hear is fantastic for your hair), Grapeseed oil, Shea Butter, or even Jojoba oil.

    Have fun, hashtag #cocorave so I can follow your post with beach hair or comment any other recipes that worked well for you too!
