Easy to Make Beach Wave Spray Recipe

When spending time in a beautiful place, I always think that makes the person just a bit more beautiful. Brightened eyes, smiles always seem to be on the brink of someone’s lips, and hair escapes its normal confines.

Our Beach Wave Spray Recipe is designed to recreate a day spent on the beach. Grapefruit Essential Oil will not only help keep your hair healthy, but its scent also helps exude outward happiness. Sea salt will add texture to your hair making it look like you spent a day at the beach.

While we live near Lake Michigan, the ocean is far away. Getting that salt in the hair, sand in the toes feeling isn’t quite possible (we’ve got the sand, but not the salt). This recipe makes me feel like I’ve spent the day along the ocean, and I love the way it smells!

To get a natural beachy look, here’s what you’ll need:

Boiling Water

Boiling water is used in this recipe so the sea salt can dissolve faster! It allows everything to combine and keep their properties.

Sea Salt

Sea Salt is used to give the recipe the texture it desires! It slightly dehydrates your hair and gives it the wavy look you want!

Almond Oil

Almond Oil is used to bring some of the hydration back in this recipe! It has great moisturizing benefits and also allows for the Grapefruit Essential Oil to fully dilute.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit Essential Oil has a fresh, sweet citrus scent to it! It has great health benefits for your hair as well as having uplifting and energizing properties!

2 oz Spray Bottle

2 oz Spray Bottle is used to hold this recipe. It is small enough to carry along with you on a night out if you desire! It also is small enough to fit in carry on luggage, so you can take it on your weekend vacation!
