Bionic Homemade: Sea Salt Spray for your hair

Welcome to another installment of Bionic Beauty Homemade with Joycey Couture!

Want that “just stepped off the beach” wavy, piece-y hair look, even if the closest body of water is a tiny lake? Piece of cake!
Bionic Beauty shares a tip on making your own Sea Salt Spray for beachy wavey hair

The Bee-you-tee-full Ingredients:

  • 8 ounce of distilled or filtered water,
  • A clean spray bottle. You can find a cheap one at your local grocery store, just make sure that it can hold at least 8 to 10 ounces,
  • 1 teaspoon of finely ground Sea Salt, per 8 ounces of water (add a touch more sea salt to your mixture if you have oily hair – it’ll help absorb some of your extra moisture),
  • ½ teaspoon of scented conditioner, more for dryer hair.
  • A dab of unscented hair gel. Opt for a gel that is not too thick or they won’t mix easily.
  • Dump them all into your misting bottle, shake and spritz.

Want to add a little something extra?
Choose an yummy essential oil to add!

  • Ylang ylang will soothe senses and sensitive scalp skin,
  • Rosemary to deepen the color of brunette hair or,
  • Chamomile to brighten blondes (squeeze a bit of the concentrated tea or leaves into your spray)
  • Coconut, vanilla, or something fruity- whatever scent you adore!
  • Add a bit of tea tree oil if you have a sensitive and oily scalp.
  • A squeeze of lemon or lime juice are other good options – they provide citrusy scents and extra hold.

The Preparation:

Mix the ingredients and give your spray a shake. In fact, make sure to shake your beachy-wave spray before each use. When mixing- if the hair gel and/or conditioner don’t combine well, just warm the mixture slightly in a microwave. Let it cool and spray it on!

Now, who’s up for some Beach Blanket Bingo?

Stay Bionic,

This sounds great! I can’t wait to try it. Does anyone have an idea of about how long this mixture will stay good? Or if it should be refrigerated? I love that it doesn’t have chemical preservatives in it, but I’d like to know how to help preserve it! Thanks for the fab recipe!! :)
