Make your own Sea Salt Beach Waves Texture Spray!

This DIY Beach Waves Texture Spray caught my eye and I had to try it out! Plus, it is super inexpensive to make at home!

I am definitely not a hair pro, but I happen to know a few people that are! I really wanted a second opinion on this spray to make sure it is worth sharing with you, so I am grateful that my talented friend, Kylee, agreed to test it out. Thumbs up!  (In fact, here is a picture of her daughter from her instagram feed).

I added Ylang Ylang essential oil to my natural salt spray because it offers such a beautiful, positive, and calming floral scent. Bonus: It is also known to have nourishing and protective properties and may promote healthier-looking hair! I like the idea of adding in an oil that not only offers a great scent, but also adds benefit to the hair and can even lift your mood while you’re at it. 🙂 (See below for more ideas of essential oils to use in this recipe.)

The other ingredients are warm water, natural sea salt, fractionated coconut oil, and aloe vera gel. You can use the gel from an aloe vera plant, or buy some aloe vera gel online or at a store. With essential oils, it is always good to use a glass container.

Ok, so if you’re not quite sure what Beach Waves Texture Spray is really all about and how to use it, here’s the gist of it: You can use this light beach texture salt spray to add volume and texture to hair. It will also add grip or grit to the hair, which is helpful for some hairstyles, like braids and knots.

My hair is naturally on the curly side and can be frizzy, so I need to use a hair product in addition to the spray to keep the frizz under control. The spray added some nice volume for me though. I wet my daughter’s baby-fine hair with the salt spray, then scrunched her hair with my hands, and it added some cute waves and texture.

If the hair is really thick, you might want to tweak the spray to be a bit heavier by adding more salt, but I would start with it as written and go from there.


We recommend using high quality, pure essential oils for the best results. You can add your favorite essential oils, or you may want to use one of the following for their proven effects on hair:

  • Roman Chamomile promotes youthful-looking skin and hair
  • Sandalwood (Indian) improves the look of hair, restores moisture and gives hair a silky shine.
  • Hawaiian Sandalwood improves the look of hair.
  • Ylang Ylang may help hair appear more healthy and shiny.

Thanks, Kylee! (She knows her stuff – check her out on Instagram!)

    That’s pretty awesome! Those name brand sprays can be pricey. Does it still leave the hair soft? or a bit crunchy like hairspray?

      I think the hair stays pretty soft, but I suppose it would also depend on how much you use. It adds some grit, which is great for a gripping texture. You could add more salt for even more texture.
