Beach Waves Sea Salt Texturing Hair Spray

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Tousled wavy beach hair? Yes please! Who doesn't love the casual low-key look of effortless waves, especially with summertime on it's way! So here's my recipe for how to make your own beach wave sea salt hair spray.

What You'll Need...
  • Aloe Vera Juice/Inner Fillet (I use Lily Of The Desert, it contains citric acid and potassium sorbate, mold inhibitors to help extend the shelf life and keep it fresh)
  • Sea Salt
  • Hair Gel (Aubrey Organics blends well)
  • Fragrance oil of your choice (I use Jasmine/Jojoba Essential Oil Blend)
  • Mirage Gold Mica (optional)
  • Spray Bottle 

Fill your bottle with Aloe Vera juice, leave room for the other ingredients, add sea salt and hair gel. Shake to blend. Next add several drops of fragrance oil and if you want shimmer add 1/8 of a teaspoon or less of mica. Shake to blend and you're done!

I make small batches, my 2oz bottle lasts me about 2 months. I keep it at my vanity and take it with me on the go. I haven't found that it needs refrigeration, the citric acid and potassium sorbate work great at keeping it fresh.

  1. I have to comment here because my phone won't let me comment on YOUTUBE. :(

    I recently found your channel and love, love, love all your videos. I really dislike the hater comments but they must be bored so whatever right?

    I wanted to ask you if you ever use apple cider vinegar and if so, could you do a video on how you use it. I've been hearing about the health benefits about it and was curious if you used it.

    I recently purchased coconut oil, tea tree oil, Argan oil ALL because of the benefits you have found with them. I can't wait for my grandgirls to come over and we are going to make the powder boxes and some powder. They will think I'm just a ROCKING grandmother. Yes, I'm 53 and I'm a mimi not a granny... lol... and I love your videos. You are an inspiration to beauty and health and I am subscribed to your channel so I don't miss the next update.

    I loved watching the Q&A's to learn more about you. I love it when Michael shares the screen with you and when you talk about the "pigs" and "Dottie" and her feathered friends.

    Thanks for sharing so much of your life with us and teaching us what you know and have learned through experimenting. OHHHH... I just reserved the essential oils book from the library... LOL.

  2. Aww thank you so much Lisa! That's so cool, your grandgirls are going to have a blast!

    I love using apple cider vinegar! Sometimes I mix it with green tea or african red tea (rooibos) and it makes an excellent facial toner. I also like adding a splash to my drinking water. I'll have to do a video on it soon.

    Much love and Aloha!!

  3. I absolutely love this recipe Christine and I'm definitely going to try it! As I'm from the UK and haven't seen Aloe Vera juice will water be okay to use?

    I really enjoy the fact you blog now too as I'm a blogger myself :)


  4. This looks amazing. Now if my hair would only grow faster lol... I wish I knew about the coconut oil before chopping off a lot of my hair. The bleach just killed my ends.

    So pretty! I will be trying this for sure once we get at a decent temperature in Ontario. Some how beach hair doesn't feel the same when its 30F.

  5. I made this today, and it's wonderful! I've been using a high-end brand forever, and this just replaced it. My hair feels great, and the waves look better than before. I hope you don't mind, but I linked to your post on my blog so that readers can come over here for the instructions and to watch the video. Thank you!

  6. Can I use hair wax or hair style paste instead of hair gel??

  7. What a neat idea! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Do you have any thoughts on how long something like this would keep? Does it need to be refrigerated or anything?

  8. Just purchsed items from Vitacost and cannot wait to try this. I've made the cute boxes and I think you created a monster. Everytime I go to the thrift store I look for boxes to create pretties out of . Some paper mache, some cardboard, some wooden. Waiting patiently for more of your ideas Christine! Okay...not totally patient but I have the beach spray and boxes to keep me busy for awhile.

  9. Hi Christine! Thanks so much for this recipe! I can't wait to try it!

    I have pretty curly hair, do I spray this to my dry curls or should I use it when it's still damp?

    Thanks again!

  10. Hello I really want to make it but I can't buy the ingredients can I buy the beach wave hair spray from you.? (The final product) please ? I really wan it please reply me :)

  11. I really like your hairsrpay! The effect is also just MAGNIFICENT!!!

  12. I am interested in the diy shimmering body spray you mentioned in the summer essential video on youtube. Could you please share your recipe for that?

  13. If you want volume and texture without the crunchy and weighed down hair, use the Shielo Volume HairSpray. My hair still looks clean and healthy while still has all this fullness. It also has an amazing smell!

  14. It’s my fortune to go to at this blog and realize out my required stuff that is also in the quality.

  15. I'm really glad I found you blog, thank you so much for sharing with us.
