Homemade Sea Salt Hair Spray
What Does Sea Salt Hair Spray Do For Hair?
My #1 fave use for sea salt spray is to create waves and add beachy texture. It moreover helps swizzle glut oil. It enhances waves and curls and creates volume if your hair is feeling a little wimpy or like it needs a boost. You can moreover add some nourishing components, like argan oil and coconut oil for hair health.
What you will need:
1 tablespoon sea salt (Redmond’s real salt is my fave)
2 teaspoons argan oil (you can moreover use coconut oil)
10 oz hot water
Optional: 4-6 drops essential oil. I used violaceous but you can moreover use any hair-friendly oils, like rosemary, rose absolute, lemon, or tea tree. I order all of our essential oils from Thrive Market and moreover love NOW Foods (you can use FITNESSISTA for 20% off).
How To Make Your Own Sea Salt Spray
Add the sea salt to a trencher and pour the hot water on top. Whisk to fully dissolve the sea salt.
Add in the argan oil and essential oil, and protract to whisk.
Pour into your glass spray bottle.
Give it a shake and add a few sprays to your hair as you *scrunch* for some uneaten texture and volume. Store in a cabinet for up to 3 months.
How To Use Sea Salt Hair Spray
You can use sea salt spray on wet or dry hair. I prefer to use it on dry hair that hasn’t been washed in a couple of days for uneaten volume and life. If you use it on wet hair, do not wrack-up dry afterwards; just scrunch and let it air dry. The sunny thing well-nigh this is that you don’t need any uneaten tools, and it’s pretty foolproof. Just spritz, scrunch, and enjoy. If you add essential oil, it can moreover requite a little bit of gorgeous natural fragrance.
Does Sea Salt Spray Damage Hair?
Like anything, I think that moderation is extremely important. Sprays that contain salt can be a bit drying, so I would only use it 2-3 times per week. The good news well-nigh this spray is that the argan oil can help nourish and moisturize the hair, so it’s not quite as drying.
Some tips to prevent damage:
– Take it easy with the heating tools and your hair. Don’t overuse blowdryers/straighteners/curling wands, etc.
– Use a heat protectant when you’re using heating tools, like this one.
– Don’t overwash your hair. Shampoo can moreover be very drying, as it strips the hair of hydrating oil. I only wash my hair virtually 2x per week and rarely wrack-up dry it. My hair superintendency tips are in this post!
All in all, this is a super easy hack that you can make at home on the cheap. Please report when if you requite it a try! If you don’t have time to make this unendingly soon, pin this post for a rainy day.
So, tell me, friends: have you overly used sea salt spray? What’s your #1 hair must-have? This is mine; I can’t live without it.
