DIY Salt Spray for Beachy Waves
One of our favorite things about summer is that ocean-washed and sun-dried wavy hair look. Some of us don't have access to the ocean to dunk our heads into and get that enviable look - so we have to use the resources we have at hand. Actually, I love using this easy DIY salt spray no matter what season it is because I’m generally just love that all natural soft wavy look. That and even the idea of using a salt spray makes me feel as though I'm living on a private tropical beach...hey, a girl can dream, right?
The Pink Himalayan and Epsom salt spray below is my go-to for that perfect “beachy” look. The essential oils not only smell great but also help to add a little extra texture and wave to the recipe. If you don’t have epsom salt, you can still make the recipe with the Pink Himalayan Salt or even Mediterranean Sea Salt.
