Beach Wave Spray DIY Ingredients

I added Ylang Ylang essential oil to my natural homemade 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 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 for this DIY texture spray 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 for storage.

DIY Sea Salt Texture Spray in Action

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:

  • 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.
