Sea Salt Hairspray

Sea salt sprays are all the rage, and it’s no wonder why. They’re fantastic for styling hair, providing light hold to keep shorter styles in place, and for adding texture and definition to longer cuts. Making your own is easy, and you’ll be amazed at how well sea salt spray can effortlessly boost your style. 

Sea Salt Hairspray Recipe

1 cup distilled water
1 tbsp sea salt
1 tsp jojoba oil
1 tsp aloe gel (not juice)
25 drops essential oils (I used 20 drops lime and 5 drops vanilla and LOVED the scent!)

1. In a kettle or small pot, heat distilled water then add to a glass measuring cup along with sea salt. Stir until dissolved.

2. Stir in remaining ingredients and pour into a misting spray bottle.

3. To use, shake bottle and mist onto damp or dry hair. For wavy or curly hair, use fingers to scrunch ends and lift hair at the roots, or twirl sections around fingers for softer waves. For straight hair and shorter cuts, spray and style as usual for definition and hold. Allow to air-dry, or blow dry on a cool and low setting.
