Homemade Sea Salt Texturizing Hair Spray

I am loving all the amazing Hair tutorials on Pinterest  and while I’ve been learning new fun ways to style my hair I’ve also learned that I’ve been missing out on a styling product for years. People kept mentioning “Sea Salt” texturizing hair spray as a needed styling tool for those lose beachy looks. I’ve never heard of this stuff and all the links they referred to listed pricy bottles of product that I wouldn’t dare spend the money on and I was bummed out thinking I’d never be able to achieve that style without it.

So then I put on my “find a solution, Rebecca!” hat and started my search. Come on! It’s Salt spray! It can’t be that hard to make right? Thanks to a few searches I found a recipe for homemade Sea Salt spray! Thanks Glamour!

Water, Coconut scented conditioner, Sea Salt, hair gel and  a spray bottle! That’s all it takes to make this wonder spray and the best part was I had every single ingredient already!

1. Add 1 teaspoon of Sea Salt to 8 oz. of warm water. the warm water will help the ingredients dissolve easily.

2. Add 1/2 a teaspoon of Coconut scented conditioner. This adds that beachy scent and helps give the spray a slightly conditioning feature.

3. Add a dab of hair gel! This gives a slightly controlling feature to the spray.

4. Mix it all together. The conditioner doesn’t dissolve completely so stir it really good right before you pour it into your spray bottle.

(this is my gym bag bottle!)

You’ll need to shake up the bottle before each use! I spray this on my damp hair close to the roots to the tips and blow dry! I used this great tutorial for hand curls and found this spray to be a hit! I also noticed that when I use the Sea Salt spray it help with my “second day oily hair problem!” Day two my hair wasn’t nearly as oily at the roots and I could almost go a third day without washing!

It also helps by adding that tiny layer of texture that helps with styling! It’s like Dirty hair in a bottle without the dirty hair yuck feel!

All in all I LOVE this new spray and it cost me only pennies to make! So hello beachy wave, goodby over prices salt water!

    Oooh Becca, I am so excited to hear what you think of this! I had a product that sounds similar I used to use years ago. Loved it, but they discontinued. Must try this!

    I use this same thing but with epsom salt from http://www.notmartha.org/archives/2009/05/27/diy-hair-styling-spray/ (which is slightly cheaper since there is no conditioner…can add if you would like, and epsom is usually cheaper than sea salt or you can buy in bulk) after I fell in love with Bumble & Bumble’s Surf Spray. Great stuff and I don’t need to spend $20/bottle anymore!

    Does it have to be sea salt? Would regular salt work?
