Haley’s Homespuns: Do it yourself beach-hair look

Hit the Beach—in Colorado!

Remember when you hit the beach last summer and your hair had those gorgeous, beach-y waves? Even Coloradans can get the beach-hair look with this homespun hack. Saltwater sprays are easy to make and give your hair that effortlessly wavy look you thought could only be earned from a day at the beach.

The best part of making your own saltwater spray is that it’s totally customizable. Is your hair dry? Add a little more coconut oil. Oily? More salt. If your locks don’t like to hold their shape, you can even mix in a little hair gel. And add your favorite essential oils for a desired scent.

Here’s a basic how-to; it’s up to you to fiddle around and find just the right recipe for you.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup filtered water
1-2 teaspoons sea salt (any kind)
1 tablespoon of coconut oil (you can also use Moroccan Argan oil or a mixture of the two)
2-4 drops of your favorite essential oil

DIRECTIONS:

Warm the water on the stove (don’t boil it) and mix in salt and oil. If you choose to add hair gel, add about half a teaspoon. If your hair needs even more repair than you’ll get from the natural salt and coconut oil, another option is to add half a teaspoon of leave-in conditioner instead of hair gel.

If you do choose to add hair gel or leave-in conditioner, bare in mind how the scents of the essential oils you choose will (or won’t) complement each other.

Let the mixture cool to room temperature and pour into a clean, empty spray bottle. Shake vigorously and spritz generously on damp hair.

Then show off those locks!
