The best stuff in life is free.
Like sunshine, blue skies and THE OCEAN…if you have access to it, that is.
Which I don’t.
And I know it’s only January but I’m already Jonesing for spring.
So, to scratch the itch, I decided to go with beach hair.
Problem was I needed sea spray to get the really beachy look and texture.
I was fresh out.
And it is far from free. (the kind I had cost me 20 bucks for a tiny bottle)
So with much hesitation and skepticism I took on the task of making my own, with stuff I already had around the house.
You know, free stuff.
BELIEVE me when I tell you, this is BY FAR the best sea spray I have ever used, EVER.
I credit part of that being to the fact that it was so cheap to make. I felt like I could spray with reckless abandon and use as much as I wanted (which turned out to be a key to getting the look just right.)
1 Cup WARM water
3 Tablespoons Sea Salt
1 Tablespoon Gel or Spray Gel
1/2 Tablespoon Conditioner (or leave-in)
A couple spritzes of your favorite perfume
Mix Warm water and salt first and shake well.
Add the rest of the ingredients.
Spray your hair generously and scrunch.
