This all natural and vegan hair spritz gives you beachy waves!
Summer is here! Time for summer hair. What says summer more than the sunny beach?
The look of effortless waves is the envy of many city dwellers, but it's totally easy to achieve sans-beach! Celebrity hairstylists rely on chemical-laden and totally overpriced beach sprays to give their clients "the look". Plus, anyone who buys these sprays is basically buying 80% water.
That doesn't work for me, or for my DIY-ers.
So, why not create a totally natural and totally handmade version yourself?
Silly question, I know.

The DIY version produces the same results, see above.
Yes, your spray will be about 99% water. But that's ok, because we are taking out all the nasty chemicals and other undesirables you really don't want in there anyways. What's best about the spray is that it won't smell like artificial fragrances; it will smell of fresh herbs.
Much nicer to your nostrils and the environment.
Enough talk; let's begin.

  • How to make a hair spray. Beachy Hair Spritz - Step 1
    Step 1

    Step 1: Get an old spray bottle (I used a small one, maybe like 4 oz., recycled from a Bath and Body spray). Fill it up with water (distilled). Dump this water into a glass.
    Gather a generous handful of fresh herbs from your garden, if you have one. I used a combination of lavender and spearmint.
    If you don't have a garden, you can use herbal tea bags. Maybe like chamomile or peppermint would be nice? You could also try a combination.
    Place the herbs or tea bags into the glass.

    Step 2: The magic ingredient; sea salt. It will mimic the saltiness of the sea, and give your hair that beach texture. Get a handful of sea salt and add this to the glass.

    Step 3: Get a wooden spoon. Muddle all these ingredients together; really break up the herbs, and if you have tea bags you might want to break open the bag and dump the herbs into the water to make sure you get the most out of your muddling.
    Muddle, muddle, muddle.....
