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 for mere pennies. 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.

Prep Time: 3 minutes
