DIY Sea Salt Spray

It’ summertime and that means all we really want are the perfect beach waves for both our hair and ourselves. As much as we would all love to live by the beach-we don’t. We can still get beach waves hair with a sea salt spray.

  • Tbsp melted coconut oil
  • Tbsp of leave-in conditioner
  • 1 cup of warm water

Tip: A few drops of your favorite essential oil will make this DIY spray smell like a dream.


Step 1: The warm water and sea salt need to be poured into the bottle. Generously shake the bottle

Step 2: The coconut oil and leave-in conditioner need to be mixed in a bowl and then put into the bottle.

Step 3: If you decide the spray needs essential oils add them at this step. Shake the bottle once more. Apply to towel-dried hair and you’ll be a beachy ready beauty in an instant.
