I’m sure by now that most have heard about sea salt spray for your hair. My husband is the one that mentioned it to me many months ago. He has longer hair and was looking for a way to get the hold he wanted without having to add a ton of product. So after many, many trial and errors I finally figured out the formula that works great for not only his hair but for our littles hair as well. I even add it to my hair on occasion and love the results I get. It gives me just the right amount of hold, along with the “just getting back from the beach” look.
Sea Salt Spray
The ingredients are pretty simple that I use for my Sea Salt Spray. It’s made up of Dead Sea Salt, Epsom Salt, Jojoba Oil, Aloe Vera Gel, and essential oils.
Why these ingredients
Dead Sea Salt is very beneficial to this spray because it helps to add texture.
Epsom Salt is commonly used to give hair volume and it also has conditioning properties.
Jojoba Oil is great for hair in that it helps to replenish moisture and improves texture. It also can be used to add shine and soften hair.
Fractionated Coconut Oil is added because it’s incredibly moisturizing. It also helps the sea salt spray to coat your hair.
Aloe Vera Gel offers such nourishing properties that I hate to leave it out of this sea salt spray. With tons of vitamins and minerals, it’s great for helping to keep your hair strong and healthy. It’s also been known to promote hair growth and decreases dandruff build-up.
How to make Sea Salt Spray
1 cup distilled water
1 Tablespoon Dead Sea Salt
1 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil
1 teaspoon jojoba oil
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
1 teaspoon epsom salt
15 drops essential oil (this is completely optional. feel free to use whatever oil combination you like. Since the guys use this more than me, I usually add 10 drops cedarwood and 5 drops sandalwood)
8oz glass spray bottle
• Heat 1 cup of distilled water until it’s hot.
• Add 1 Tablespoon Dead Sea Salt and 1 teaspoon Epsom salt to the hot water.
• Stir until the salt is completed dissolved.
• Once dissolved, add 1 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil and 1 teaspoon jojoba oil and your 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel.
• Next, add in the essential oils of your choice. I like using cedarwood and sandalwood in mine.
• Stir it all together and then use a funnel to pour it into the glass bottle.
How to use the Sea Salt Spray
• Shake the bottle well before each use.
• You can spray this on either wet or dry hair. My husband actually prefers to spray the sea salt spray into his hands and then rub it onto his hair. This is how I do our boys as well. With the length of my hair though, I find it easier to spray it directly on. Just remember that a little goes a long way.
•My husband uses a diffuser at the end of the hair dryer and blows his hair dry. This also works great if you allow your hair to air dry.
