I have fairly short hair and really enjoy doing it in curls, or braids, or even short up-dos. It makes me feel put together, and when I feel put together I feel confident.
So it’s just something that I make into a part of my day.
Because I have short, thick hair, anything I do to it stays fairly well, so I just stopped using hair spray all together. It has a ton of chemicals in it, and I will detox anywhere I can, and that was just a convenient area to do so.
Anyways, we are going to the beach soon, and because of the constant breeze, it’s actually pretty hard to keep whatever you do to your hair to stay. Most of the time people just throw it up in a bun, clip, or pony tail, but my hair is too short to do that.
Instead I am going to just spray my hair down with this sea salt spray to have beachy waves all week long!
This was actually really quick and easy to make, and it is of course, toxin free!
So here is what you will need:
- 1 empty doTERRA Spray bottle. You can use an empty On Guard Hand Sanitizing Mist bottle, TerraShield bottle, or, I used an empty Verage Toner bottle. Doesn’t really matter, but you just need a spray bottle from doTERRA because they are industrial plastic or lined so that the essential oils don’t break down the toxins in the plastic. Or get one that is glass.
- Sea Salt Spray. This gives a nice texture to your hair.
- Aloe Vera Gel. We will be using lots of this on our skin after being out in the sun too.
- Fractionated Coconut Oil
- Lavender Essential Oil
Just clean out the inside of whatever empty doTERRA bottle you will be using really well.
Then you are going to take 1/2 a Tablespoon of crushed sea salt and add it to the bottle, along with 1/2 a Tablespoon of Aloe Vera Gel, 1 Teaspoon of FCO, and 6 drops of Lavender essential oil.
Then fill to the top with water, put the lid on and shake well. It may take a few good pumps to get the combination through the pump, but just keep working at it until it sprays.
Then you have your incredibly easy and toxin free DIY Sea Salt Hair Spray.
I am going to be using this in my hair at home as well as a replacement for hairspray, because when it is texturized it stays even better!
Spray this on dry or damp hair after you shower, or before you curl or do your hair!
