DIY Friday:: Make Your Own Sea Salt Spray

PicMonkey Collage123

Why spend $5-$25 on sea salt spray to achieve beachy waves when you can make it yourself in under 5 minutes for a fraction of the cost?  Its super simple, which means even I can do it, so you can too!  You will need a few items and I’m pretty sure 1 if not 2 of these items you already have.

==========================================================

1. 1 Cup of water (you should have this at home)

2. 1  1/2 Teaspoon of Sea Salt (there’s a 50/50 chance you have this)

3. 1 Teaspoon of Hair Gel (there’s a pretty good chance you have this too, or you can be like me and steal it from your brothers bathroom…) 

4. A spray bottle ( you can pick one up from the drugstore for under $2 or be green and use an empty bottle)

5. A few drops of Argan Oil ***(this can be costly, see if a friend has some and ask to steal a few drops!)

 

Heat the water in the microwave or on the stove and add the salt, gel and argan oil and stir until dissolved.  Once the water has cooled pour it into your spray bottle.  I make sure before every use I give the bottle a good shake.  Its really that simple!!

*** While it may seem counterproductive the oil isn’t optional.  This is what keeps the spray from making your hair look dry and feeling brittle and hay like.  My hair is fine and leans towards oily but if you have dry or coarse hair you will need to add a little more. ***

Sock Bun

Sock Buns are my new go to hair do for second (or third) day hair.  There are two methods which I have found. One is to roll your pony tail over the sock.  The second is to put the sock over your ponytail, fan the hair around it, secure with an elastic and then roll the remaining hair around the base of the bun.  I have found the second method works best for me.  My hair is thick and layered, so my bun ended up being the size of my head and little sprigs of hair popped out all over when I tried to roll it.  Here is the picture I posted on Pinterest of my sock bun.

Here is a YouTube Video from RachaelJadee which shows both methods.  The way I do my sock bun is at the 3:20 mark. I do not usally wrap the remaining hair like she does, I start at the front of my head and twist, adding more hair as I go around my head until I run out which is usually around my bun one and a half times and then pin in place.  Also I do not use more than one sock, like Rachael does in the video but please do whatever works best for you and your hair.
