Ahhh Springtime. So close to summer. Time for lost clothing, shorts, hikes, and camping. It’s also that time of year for beachy, flowy hair. One thing that just makes me laugh is when people buy “Beach Spray” for their hair. Don’t be fooled! You’re buying salt water (with perhaps, a little hair spray) in a bottle – this is a very sneaky scheme. It’s easy to get scammed into buying that beautiful bottle of stuff that promises to make you look like you just returned from the beach.
Well, I have a surprise for you!!! You can make your own for pennies on the dollar.
You will need:
- Spray bottle (use one that you already own by washing it out and reusing it instead of buying a new one.)
- Salt, natural sea salt preferably
- Hairspray (try this natural DIY version)
Simply dissolve a teaspoon or two of salt into some warm water, add a little hairspray if you choose, shake, spray! Yes, that easy.
For me, I have stick-straight hair. I spray this on my dry hair and scrunch it up with my hands until the spray dries. It gives my hair a little more texture than it normally has. The more natural texture you have, the more wave you will see. Be careful though, the salt will dry out your hair. Be sure to properly moisturize your hair so you don’t damage your hair. Just because it is a natural product, does not mean that it will not damage your hair.
Have you ever made your own beach mist or hairspray? What have your results been? What kind of recipe did you use?
Until next time, I send you peace, love and good energy.
