I purchased the John Masters Organics Spray from Amazon wanting an organic product to add bounce and life to my hair. I came across this as an option. Costing around $14-15, I fell in love with the spray. I use it nearly every day. It smells divine and leaves my hair soft and chemical free. After receveing the product and realizing it was essentially salt water and lavender essential oil I thought “Hell, I can make this myself”.. so I did! And it works just as great, if not better than the product I bought. I am all about saving some money and thought I’d share this recipe with you fine Tumlbrs and hope it works for you as well as it worked for me.
I Googled DIY sea salt sprays, and it led me to this recipe below. I, however, added Argan oil as I have found that the sea salt zaps my hair of shine. It leaves it textured, but the natural shine of my hair is dulled by the salt. Argan oil, while it can be a bit expensive, it is well worth the price as it seems to last forever. It adds light moisture and lots of shine to the hair where the sea salt seems to dull it. You can use this spray on dry or damp hair. It has saved me a lot of bad hair days. I’ve rambled enough.. on to the recipe.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup of warm water
4 or 5 drops of the essential oil of your choosing, think beachy (vanilla?)
2 teaspoons of sea salt
4 or 5 drops Argan Oil for moisture. (Optional.)
Spray bottle (you’re bound to have one available for reuse from an old or outdated product)
Here’s what to do:
Just load your ingredients into your spray bottle - that’s it!
When you get out of the shower, spray your new Sea Salt Spray over your damp hair and scrunch up with your hands. Beachy tresses to go with summer, on the fly.
