DIY Vanilla Sea Salt Beachy Waves Spray

It's summer, and my favorite hairstyle has to be Beachy Waves. I love it. And one of my favorite posts is my annual diy beachy waves recipe. This year's recipe is for those who want a light hold, less frizziness, and a vanilla scent. Check out the recipe:

  • spray bottle
  • kosher salt
  • aloe juice
  • carrier oil
  • vanilla oil
  • water
  • funnel
  • The amount of each ingredient depends on the size of the bottle. I used a small travel-size bottle in the pic above, so my sizes will reflect that. 
  • I took a very small handful of salt and put it in the bottom of the bottle.
  • Using a funnel, I added 2/3 of aloe juice. Mine is from Trader Joes, but try any health store or online.
  • Next, I added three drops of vanilla oil and half a teaspoon of carrier oil. Think jojoba, argan, or castor oil (coarse hair), or many more.
  • Fill the rest of the bottle with filtered water, secure the top and shake.
  • Spray damp or dry hair. Scrunch hair with an old tshirt to help with frizziness.
  • This works well to add texture and volume to hair. 
  • This spray is awesome for heat or no heat waves. 
  • If you have stick-straight hair, pretty much no spray will make it wavy, if you don't have natural wave to it, so that's why I suggest using this in conjunction to waves or curls.
  • If you find your spray nozzle is clogged, shake your spray, and add more water, or consider skipping the oil. I have also added small, clean pebbles or rocks to help break up the spray.  I also have poured a little into my hand and dispersed through hair.
  • This will keep for a couple of months.
  • Since salt is drying, be sure to use a good clarifying shampoo on hair to remove any residue and condition afterwards.
