Sea Salt Hair Spray

This was my husband creation, we had seen this product in the shops and he declared (in a mad crazy scientist kind of way) “we can make that stuff, how hard can it be!”

So – that is what we (or he) did. A bit of researching of ingredients and a bit of experimenting and this is what we came up with.

For those of you not familiar with sea salt spray you spray it on damp hair to add volume, texture and (in the case of long hair) waves and scrunch that give you the “I just went swimming at the beach look”.

And it’s great!  My middle daughter has long, thick, slightly curly hair, when we spray this on it stops the frizz and makes her hair look lovely. It’s great for short hair as well, my son and husband use it too.

Making your own is very easy, and very inexpensive.

2 cups water2 tsp rock salt (or sea salt)
1 tsp coconut oil (the type you use for cooking)
1 tsp hair gel (use the cheapest stuff you can find – it doesn’t need to be fancy. We used Home Brand and it cost about $2 for a tub)
Note: measure with a correct teaspoon measure not a teaspoon from the drawer. There is a big difference in size :)

Put all ingredients into the bowl and mix at 37 degrees, speed 2 for 3 minutes. That’s it!
Then just decant into a spray bottle and shake before you use it.

You don’t need a Thermo to make this, you can just heat the mix gently on the stove top until the salt is dissolved.
Make sure you give the bowl a really good clean after making this as the hair gel is a non-food item.
