DIY Texture Beach Hair Spray | Leave a comment

By Ashley Devonish | Category: It Worked 4 Me, Moneywi$e, Surprize Me!, The Journey of Motherhood

 

I have naturally curly hair but sometimes when I do a deep conditioning, even I need help increasing the curls and texture. I started doing research on a good beachy texture spray and found that they all are just made with salt so why not do an easy DIY.

 

 

 

DIY Beach Spray Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of hot water (not boiling)- Can also use strong Chamomile Tea as the base if you want to lighten hair or black tea as the base if you want to darken hair, but you will need to keep in the fridge.

  • 2 tablespoons epsom salt (or more for extra texture)

  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan or Sea Salt (optional but adds stiffness)

  • 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel

  • 1/2 tsp conditioner or a few drops of almond oil or jajoba oil

  • Optional: a few drops of essential oils or a spritz of your favorite perfume for scent- Lavender and citrus are great options

  • Optional: 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon vodka or alcohol- if you want to lighten hair (the lemon juice lightens and the alcohol preserves)

 

 

 

How to Make:

Get a spray bottle that holds at least 10 ounces. I used a glass bottle made from an old apple cider vinegar bottle and a regular spray top. I also tripled the recipe to accommodate the size of my bottle. Put the hot water (or tea) in the spray bottle and add the epsom salts, sea salt (optional), aloe vera, conditioner, scent (optional) and lemon juice/vodka (if using). Put the cap on the bottle and shake for 1-2 minutes or until epsom salts and sea salt are dissolved. Store in the fridge if using lemon juice or tea base, or at room temperature if you aren’t. Will last 3-4 months or longer.

 

I found that the spray works great. Be careful though not to spray too much. It almost makes your hair feel dirty, I guess thats to give it some texture but just be careful not to over do it. If you have soft curly hair like me, I just spray near my roots to give me that extra volume boost.

 

Let me know if you try it!
