In the summers, I typically wear my hair in loose, tousled waves with the help of a few of my favourite products. Recently came across a new DIY that gave me lovely results. I love adding a little essential oil to the spray to customize the fragrance.
1 cup distilled water if you prefer not to refrigerate
1-2 tsp sea salt
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
1 teaspoon coconut or argan oil, I prefer coconut
4-5 drops of essential oil, I prefer rose, jasmine or grapefruit
1 spray bottle
optional: 1 tsp lemon juice to lighten
Combine all ingredients except aloe vera and, if using, lemon juice in a reusable spray bottle.
Shake well to dissolve salt.
Let cool completely then add aloe vera (and lemon juice).
Shake before each use and spray on clean, damp hair.
Scrunch and twist with your fingers to define the waves and allow to air dry.
A few products below if you prefer to purchase your spray. I especially love Oribe Apres Beach Spray.
