DIY Sea Salt Hair Spray

DIY Sea Salt Hair Spray

Love beachy texture and waves? Something about sea salt hair spray seems to give hair that extra “oomph” when it comes to volume, and also hold curl better all day long.

But paying $20+ for a bottle that’s practically just salt water? ...Yeah, freaking right! Turns out you can make this product with only 4 inexpensive ingredients.

The 4 Basic Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm water (for spraying)
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt (for texturizing)
  • 1-2 teaspoons olive oil or argan oil or coconut oil** (for moisturizing)
  • 4-5 drops essential oil (for smelling yummy — use your favorite oil or a mixture)

You’ll also want to have a nice spray bottle ready to go.  I used this glass bottle from Amazon.

A few other optional modifications:

  • Dry hair: If your hair is dry and you’d like a little extra moisture, add an extra teaspoon or two of the oil.
  • Oily hair: If your hair is too oily, then I’d go light on the oil and just use 1 teaspoon.
  • Curly hair or styled hair: If you want to really “set” or hold a style in place, you can add a teaspoon or two of hair gel.  (Otherwise, I’ll sometimes just use a bit of regular hairspray after styling my hair.)

**Coconut oil’s melting point is 76 degrees.  So if you store this in a place cooler than that, the coconut oil will solidify a bit. I’d recommend using olive oil or argan oil if that’s the case.  Or you can also just store the jar on a sunny windowsill or warm it up for a few seconds in the microwave before using.
