DIY Sea Salt Spray

You'll need:

A plastic spray bottle

1 tablespoon of sea salt

1 tablespoon of melted unrefined/organic coconut oil

1 cup of warm water

Note: You can also add a few drops of an essential oil such as lavender, mint or jasmine for a refreshing scent.


Step 1: Pour the warm water and sea salt into the spray bottle. Give it a generous shake until salt dissolves.

Step 2: Combine the melted coconut oil and hair gel (or leave-in conditioner) into a separate bowl, then add the mixture to your spray bottle.

Step 3: Add a few drops of an essential oil. Shake the bottle again, and voila! You've got homemade sea salt spray. Apply to towel-dried hair.
