DIY Salt Spray

how to get beach hair
DIY SALT SPRAY

Aaah, Beach Hair. One of the most desired hairstyles of all time. Faking those salt speckled hair do’s are much harder than they look. Today I’m sharing with your my DIY Salt Spray recipe. Some salt sprays like the Bumble and Bumble Salt Spray are awesome but are pretty pricey. This one can be made with a few items lying around your house and a spray bottle which you can purchase from pretty much any beauty supply store or even your local Boots. All you need to do is add a few heaped tablespoons of sea salt to a spray bottle of water and shake. My personal secret DIY Beach spray addition is to add a little hair gel. The hair gel gives the mixture a little extra texture and hold when styling and will enhance the mixture.Then all you need to do is spray a liberal amount into wet or damp hair and scrunch or finger comb to help encourage movement. Leave the hair to dry naturally and fingers crossed you’ll have the beachy hair of dreams. If your hair doesn’t have a natural wave then pull out a wide barrelled curling tong and curl in different directions to cheat the look a bit!

  3. This is reallllly easy to do actually! I've got very curly hair so my hair looks quite dry most of the time so I kind of avoid sea salt spray but my sister will like this little diy! x
