Somehow, the combination of sun, wind and salt water makes for really great hair after a full day at the beach. Those sun-filled summer days are waning for some of us now and will soon be replaced with falling leaves and gusty winds. But with a few simple ingredients, you can still have soft, wavy/curly "beachy" locks all year long.
1 cup boiling water 2 tablespoons Epsom salt 1/2 tablespoon Himalayan pink salt 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted 8 drops sweet orange or peppermint essential oil (optional)
Combine water and salts in a measuring cup; stir until salts are dissolved. Let cool 5 minutes. Transfer into a spray bottle with mister and add melted coconut oil; shake gently to combine. Add essential oils for scent and freshness, if using, and shake again.
To use, spritz on damp hair and scrunch hair with fingers to encourage soft waves and curls. Allow hair to dry naturally, if possible. If pressed for time, blow dry with a diffuser attachment until mostly but not thoroughly dry.
