Living with chronic illness means I have to be really careful about using too much energy on even routine self care tasks. I like having my hair on the long side but labor intensive styling is completely out of the question. For the most part, I wash and dry. I’ve grown to love using sea salt spray for natural looking, beachy hair.
Beachy hair is a soft, natural look with minimal effort that works whether you’re homebound or headed out. You can buy your own (this is the one I use) or try to make your own. A great benefit of making your own is that you can control what goes in it.
What You Need
To make your own sea salt spray, you just need some simple ingredients…warm water, sea salt and a little bit of oil so your hair doesn’t get too try. You might also want to add some essential oils such as lavender as well. Finally, you’ll need a spray bottle for your sea salt spray.
How to Make Your Sea Salt Spray
Now that you have all the ingredients together, get started! Sea salt spray is quite easy to make and only takes a few minutes. First you’ll want to warm up the water so that the salt can dissolve, so pour your water into a measuring cup or other glass cup and heat it up, just to warm it. Then go ahead and add in your sea salt and other ingredients, like the argan oil and essential oils, if using. Mix it well, then pour it into a spray bottle.
How to Use Sea Salt Spray
The best way to get a natural beachy wave look is to wait until your hair is wet or damp, then spray in the sea salt spray. That way, your hair dries with it in your hair, which allows the salt to create a naturally wavy look. You can also use it when your hair is dry, but using it on wet hair is typically preferred.
Make your sea salt spray unique by changing the essential oils you use, adding in different scents, as this also makes your hair smell wonderful.
