To get beachy waves, nothing beats a great salt spray. While you can buy some great ones for under $30, you can make your own sea salt spray for mere pennies using this recipe. Most hair has some wave in it and this salt spray will help bring out your natural waves. Add more salt if you feel the spray needs more. You can also use less oil (or none) if you have super fine, oily hair.

What You Need

  • Epsom salt
  • Olive, extra virgin coconut or jojoba oil
  • Water
  • Spritzer bottle


To make a bottle of salt spray, take a spritzer bottle and mix in the following ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt
  • 1 teaspoon of olive, extra virgin coconut or jojoba oil
  • 3/4 cup of water

Mix and spray on damp hair. Scrunch with your hands as hair air dries, or use a blow dryer, scrunching hair in your palms as you dry from below.

Now you have the spray, find out how to use it properly in The Secret to Beachy, Wavy Hair.
