Forget the expensive sea salt sprays at stores; instead, make your own, to get beautiful natural beachy salty hair!
You can take this DIY Sea Salt Spray to the beach or use it at home, either way it will help to give your hair texture and oomph while reminiscing of the shimmering ocean and sand in your toes. If you crave the messy, beachy, wavy look, then this homemade method should help to do the trick, thanks to the wonders of the salt.
This is an easy, simple and cheap method that’s packed with natural ingredients that protect and nourish the hair. Here are the benefits to using these natural ingredients.
It’s always important to use sea salt rather than the overly processed table salt, as the former has the nutrients still intact and the latter becomes altered artificially. With so many minerals present in sea salt, it helps to get that desired volume and bounce in your hair you desire.
Also, if you have oily hair, it can help to absorb the excess. There are concerns that too much salt can damage hair. This is especially true for salt straight from the ocean, as it is more concentrated than this DIY spray. This sea salt spray has the bonus of coconut oil to help moisturize your wavy luscious locks.
Coconut oil is a fantastic solution for dry, damaged hair, as it soothes the scalp and softens the hair. Check out these 5 Homemade Hair Conditioners to Try Next Time You Shower that incorporate coconut oil and essential oils.
Use any essential to suit your preferred fragrance. For example, lavender, lemon or orange would work really well to add a delicious aroma to your hair. You could even create a mix of your favorite scents! Lavender oil can improve blood circulation in the body, including the scalp, which can help to promote healthy hair growth. It can nourish the hair, helping to moisturize and hydrate.
Epsom salt is a crystallized form of the mineral compound magnesium. It has many nourishing properties for the hair and also relaxes the muscles of the body. It can help to reduce excess oil in the hair and scalp while helping to revitalize and add volume to the hair.
The lemon provides numerous beauty benefits aside from its culinary use. The rich vitamin C content makes this citrus fruit a great choice for healthy hair, whether you consume it or apply it due to its important role with growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body.
Lemon juice can help to prevent hair damage and promote growth while nourishing the hair follicles. Signs of a vitamin C deficiency include dry and splitting hair, so adding a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to the scalp and hair can help boost luscious locks.
