If you’re a fan of beachy surfer-girl waves, you don’t have to actually stand on a surfboard and let the ocean rough up your hair to get the look. In fact, you can easily get the look at home with a DIY salt spray, using ingredients you may already have. Here’s a recipe from Glamour Magazine’s beauty blog, as well as a few products that will enhance your waves.
First, make sure your hair is prepped and ready by lathering up with BORGHESE – Shampoo Purificante Cleansing Treatment for Hair and Scalp in the shower. Also, grab a gentle-hold hairspray like Leonor Greyl – Laque Souple Gentle Hold Hair Spray to set your waves after you apply the salt spray.
Now, fill a clean spray bottle with water and sea salt. Use one teaspoon of salt for every eight ounces of water. Add in ½ teaspoon of coconut-scented conditioner or coconut oil, which will smell great and combat the salt’s tendency to dry out your hair. A tiny bit of unscented hair gel added in will also help to hold the wave.
Shake it up and spray it on before curling your hair or just leave it in to enhance your tresses’ natural waves. Easy!
