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.

This homemade sea salt spray contains only 4 ingredients.
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.
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.
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.
