Diy Sea Salt Hair Spray For Beachy Waves

Beach days are the best days! There’s nothing better than the sound of the ocean and the sand between your toes.

And let’s not forget about the sun-kissed skin and tousled beach waves.

Summer isn’t quite here yet but this DIY sea salt hair spray will make you feel like you’ve spent all day at the beach!

I love this spray because it can help you achieve perfectly tousled beach waves even if you don’t live anywhere near the beach. And it’s super simple to make!

It’s also really cheap to make. You may already have all the ingredients on hand.

I was kinda shocked when I saw how expensive some sea salt sprays cost. $28 for a bottle of saltwater? Um…..no thanks!

You can find cheaper versions at the drugstore but they’re usually filled with a bunch of nasty ingredients and in my experience they really don’t work that well.

 

Take for example the Garnier Fructis Style Beach Chic Texturizing Spray. It costs around $4. But it’s filled with things like propylene glycol.

I would much rather take the time to make my own DIY version that is completely toxin-free and works way better too!

Sea Salt Spray Benefits

Sea salt spray gives your hair a little extra volume and also gives it more texture. It can also create natural curls and waves in your hair.

Sea salt spray can also help to soak up extra oil on the scalp which can be great for people with oily hair. 

With that being said, if you have really dry hair I would avoid using any type of sea salt spray more than once a week because it can dry out your hair even more.

All Natural Sea Salt Hair Spray INGREDIENTS

This homemade sea salt spray contains only 4 ingredients.

You will also need a glass spray bottle. I use these ones. If you prefer a larger bottle you could use this one or this one.

How To Make Sea Salt Spray For Beachy Waves

The amount of water you will need will depend on the size of your bottle. I use a 4 oz bottle.

You can use whatever size bottle you prefer but just note this recipe is based on a 4 oz bottle. If you use a larger bottle you’ll just have to adjust the amount of sea salt and coconut oil.

Fill the bottle with water and then pour the water into a pot on the stove. Heat up the water so it’s a little hot. Not boiling but just hot enough to dissolve the salt.

Then add 1 tsp of sea salt, 1/2 tsp of fractionated coconut oil and 3-4 drops of lavender essential oil to the pot.

Stir well and then pour into the glass bottle. Shake up and you’re done! Don’t forget to increase the amount of the other ingredients if you’re using a larger bottle!

How To Use Diy Sea Salt Hair Spray

Spray this liberally all over towel-dried hair.

I like to let my hair air dry as much as possible and scrunch it up with my hands while it’s drying.

If you prefer you can scrunch up your hair while you’re using a blow dryer.

Either one works but I do think my hair looks better (wavier and less frizzy) when I let it air dry and use a blow dryer on the roots once the hair is almost completely dry.

And that’s really all there is to it.

I try not to use a brush on my hair when using this spray because it tends to make the waves and curls flat. So I just use my fingers to comb through my hair.

When I’m all done scrunching and my hair is completely dry I like to add a few drops of shine serum to my hair.

diy sea salt spray without coconut oil

I like to add coconut oil to this sea salt spray because it adds extra softness and shine to the hair.

But it isn’t absolutely necessary. You can leave it out completely or use almond oil or argan oil instead.

HOMEMADE SEA SALT SPRAY TIPS

You can adjust the ingredients of this DIY sea salt spray to your liking.

If your hair is more oily or you want more texture then add more sea salt. If you want more shine and softness then add more coconut oil.

You might have to play around with it a little bit until you find the right combination for you.

Also, the added essential oil is completely optional. I add it for the scent. You can use whichever essential oil you like best.

I like lavender because it’s really good for your hair. You can read this post about the best essential oils for hair growth to give you some ideas of other essential oils that would be good to add.

Or you can choose to not use essential oils at all.

Need Essential Oils?

There are many essential oil companies that sell high-quality essential oils. I used to use Young Living oils exclusively but I just couldn’t afford to use them anymore.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover several brands that sell amazing, high-quality essential oils at very affordable prices.

I love Florihana essential oils and I use them quite often. If you’re not familiar with Florihana essential oils you can check out my full Florihana essential oils review here.

I also regularly use Eden’s GardenPlant Therapy and Simply Earth essential oils.
