Sally sells sea salt spray by the seashore,
the salt sally sells is surely from the sea.
Now say it ten times fast! I altered that childhood tongue twister just a smidge…
Although Sally may sell sea salt spray, there’s no need to buy it from Sally or go to the sea for it anymore. Now that it’s that time of year, where flat ironing your hair is being trumped by cusp of summer humidity (hello frizz, call me frizzelda) and the popular look of beachy waves seems impossible to achieve if you don’t live near the ocean (even if you did, it’d be a lot of effort to dunk your head in the Pacific as part of your getting ready routine every morning). I’m going to show you how to DIY your own bottle of it, no beach needed!
-Glass of water (8 oz.)
-5 drops of essential oil (I prefer coconut oil–smells yummy!)
-1 pump of hair gel
-2 spoonfuls of sea salt
What to do…
1. Heat up the water so that all ingredients will dissolve easier. I boiled the water in a medium size saucepan!
2. Add your drops of oil, hair gel, and salt to the boiling water and stir till everything is combined and until they are broken down into the same consistency.
3. Once the mixture is successfully combined, let the mixture cool down to room temperature before touching it again.
4. Pour the mixture into an empty spray bottle. I suggest using a funnel here or a measuring cup with a spout to give control while pouring into your empty spray bottle!
5. Apply to hair when it’s damp or dry for most effective results! When applied damp it’ll enhance your natural waves more. When applied to dry hair it’ll add a tad bit of texture to give a more tousled look.
