DIY Sea Salt Spray for Beachy Waves

A day spent on the beach always feels luxurious. A little salt water, a little sun and sand, and you have the perfect beauty regimen! While these ingredients may make your skin glow, they’re sure to make your hair look a little messy. Here’s the perfect little trick to take with you on your next beach day.

What you will need:
1 Spray Bottle (you can find these in the travel section at any drugstore)
1 Cup of Warm Water (or enough to fill your bottle up half way)
1 Tbsp all-natural sea salt
1/2 Lemon (lightens your hair naturally in the sun)

*Extra Step: For moisture add 2 teaspoons of organic virgin coconut oil.

Combine all of these ingredients in to your spray bottle and shake it up! It’s that easy!

Spray over hair in pieces, starting from your ends moving upward and texturize by scrunching or twirling pieces around your fingers. Apply right on to damp hair (perfect after a swim).

    this is the best ‘recipe’ I have seen for beach waves yet – and it’s really simple 🙂

    What an easy concoction! Thanks!

  • Good tips but be careful with the lemon juice. It’s true that it will help lighten your color but girls with really dark strands run the risk that it won’t lighten enough. Essentially it lifts pigmentation out of your hair but doesn’t deposit new color. As a result you could end up with hair that’s orange/copper. Just a word of warning!

  • Does the lemon juice affect how well the spray works? It’d great to find an alternative to the expensive surf sprays out there, but I’d like to skip out on the lemon juice because my hair color already gets faded out in the sun.

    • Emma

      Sea salt spray is basically only used for texturising your hair.
