seasalt hairspray

Hair Spray Supplies

• hot water
• epsom salts
• Himalayan or Sea Salt (optional but adds stiffness- I get it here)
• aloe vera gel (I get it here)
• natural conditioner (I've used this Organix coconut one and Dr. Bronners Lavender Coconut ) or a few drops of almond oil or jajoba oil (optional- you may not need it if you have fine/oily hair)
• Optional: a few drops of essential oils or a spritz of your favorite perfume for scent- Lavender and citrus are great options
• Optional: 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon vodka or alcohol- if you want to lighten hair (the lemon juice lightens and the alcohol preserves)
Ingredients for Hair Spray

• 1 cup of hot water (not boiling)- Can also use strong Chamomile Tea as the base if you want to lighten hair or black tea as the base if you want to darken hair, but you will need to keep in the fridge.
• 2 tablespoons epsom salts (or more for extra texture)
• 1/2 tsp Himalayan or Sea Salt (optional but adds stiffness)
• 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
• 1/2 tsp conditioner (optional- don't use if you have fine/oily hair)
• Optional: a few drops of essential oils or a spritz of your favorite perfume for scent- Lavender and citrus are great options
• Optional: 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon vodka or alcohol- if you want to lighten hair (the lemon juice lightens and the alcohol preserves)
Hair Spray Instructions

• Get a spray bottle that holds at least 10 ounces. I used a glass bottle made from an old apple cider vinegar bottle and a regular spray top. I also tripled the recipe to accomodate the size of my bottle.
• Put the hot water (or tea) in the spray bottle and add the epsom salts, sea salt (optional), aloe vera, conditioner, scent (optional) and lemon juice/vodka (if using).
• Put the cap on the bottle and shake for 1-2 minutes or until epsom salts and sea salt are dissolved. Store in the fridge if using lemon juice or tea base, or at room temperature if you aren't. Will last 3-4 months or longer.
How to Use



Spray on damp hair and scrunch with a towel to dry for loose beach waves.

Spray on dry hair and on roots for volume and texture without the waves.
