DIY: Sea Salt texturising spray.

DIY: Sea Salt texturising spray.

I recently went blonder and have lobbed off my locks in an effort to go get as close to my natural colour as possible and try and get my hair healthy again after the good old post-natal hair loss.

Which is a bitch BTW, they don't put that in the what to expect when expecting books!!

I thought summer would be a great time to indulge this whim as i'm pretty much living with my hair in a messy top knot and neglecting it all the time. This forces me to make an effort and do my hair in the morning, well not too much effort! It still needs to be fuss free and I love that lived in beachy wave look a la Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung.

According to my source the key to beach waves that stay all day and look like you've just spent all day at some amazing beach resort is a good salt spray. Now you know i like to limit unnecessary chemicals as much as i can so i've come up with my own natural sea salt texturising spray and cant wait to share it with you. 

It's the work of moments and most of the ingredients are inexpensive and probably already in your cupboard.

You'll need...

Spray bottle (got mine from Kmart)

1 cup of warm water

1-2 tbsp sea salt (i use himalayan, it's pink for extra girliness)

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp Argan oil

1/2 tsp leave-in conditioner

Make sure your coconut oil is in a liquid state, warm it up if necessary and add it into the warm water along with the salt, Argan oil and conditioner and shake until combined.

Apply liberally to towel dried hair (or even dry hair). Scrunch hair in your fingers or twist hair and tie rolled up in knots until close to dry. Unravel the rolled up hair and separate loosley with your fingers. If you like you can finish it off with a hairspray but i leave it loose and natural.

Easy!
