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 Beachy Hair 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 spemt a day at the beach.
To get a natural beachy look, here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/3 cup Boiling Water*
- 1 Tbsp Sea Salt*
- 2 Tsp Almond Oil
- 4 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
- 2 oz Spray Bottle
Stir Sea Salt into boiling water to dissolve.
In a small bowl, mix 4 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil to 2 teaspoons of Sweet Almond Oil.
Add the oil mixture to the water and salt mixture.
Pour water and salt mixture into the spray bottle. Use caution, spray bottle will get hot.
To use, shake and spray onto wet or dry hair and then style as normal for sweet-scented natural texture.
What I love about this recipe
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 spend the day along the ocean, and I love the way it smells!
