A popular item found in beauty supply stores these days is hair spray formulated to give you the tousled just-come-from-the-beach wavy hair look. Here’s a homemade version I discovered in 100 Organic Skincare Recipes by Jessica Ress. Nothing beats the look, smell and feel of ocean misted hair, but spritz a little bit of this on your hair to capture a similar effect.
- 1 cup distilled water (optional add in, steep camomile tea in the water)
- 1 1/2 T. sea salt
- 1 tsp. extra-virgin coconut oil
- 1 tsp. aloe vera juice
- 1 T. 80 proof vodka
To Make: Heat the water to almost boiling and remove from heat. Add tea bag is using. Steep for five minutes and then discard tea bag. Add sea salt and coconut oil. Use a funnel to transfer to spray bottle. Shake well to dissolve ingredients and then let cool completely. Add aloe vera juice and vodka. Shake well before each use. Will store in refrigerator for 4 months. Makes 10 ounces.
To Use: Spray generously on damp or dry hair. Scrunch and twist into beachy fabulous waves. Works best if you air dry.
