DIY Salt Spray

A DIY Recipe That Will Give You Sexy Beach Waves in Minutes

Achieving those highly covetable beach waves doesn't mean you have to head to the ocean. It doesn't mean you have to break out the curling iron or store-bought texturizing spray, either. Save a few pennies with this DIY salt spritz — and stock up on sunscreen with the cash you save. Fabrice Gili, creative director of Frédéric Fekkai SoHo, divulged his quick and easy recipe for carefree waves that requires only three ingredients (all of which you probably have sitting around at home).

  • Step 1: Take an empty and clean spray bottle, and fill it up with eight ounces of water.
  • Step 2: Add two heaping tablespoons of kosher or sea salt to the water, and shake.
  • Step 3: Mix a teaspoon of your favorite hair gel in the saltwater solution, and shake it once again. This will give hair a little bit more texture.
  • Step 4: Spray a liberal amount onto wet or very damp hair, and do not brush through; finger-comb only, if necessary. Scrunch hair in your hands to help curls form, or just leave it be and let it air-dry naturally.

My hair has a lot of texture but this is definitely something I think my straight haired friends should try.

I thought we were supposed to rinse the salt water out of our hair after a swim? Wouldn't that salt dry the crud out of your hair?

i think if you don't overuse it and wash ur hair, it'll be fine. i used to use the garnier surf spray but i think this will work just as well and cost pennies, not $3.00.

Yess!!! I'm so trying this. I moved to the east coast for college after growing up in San Diego - and my hair has been ugly and frizzy ever since. Maybe the beach spray will help bring some of the old cuteness back.

I LOVE beach hair. The salt water help dry the frizz out of my hair. But his makes me wonder, is it bad to be frequently adding salt water to your hair like this? Would it suck all the moisture out and damage your hair over time?
