In this post, we'll guide you through a step-by-step process to create your own DIY sea salt spray and provide tips on application and styling for those irresistible beachy waves.


  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel
  • Optional: a few drops of essential oil for fragrance (such as lavender or jasmine)


  1. Prepare Your Ingredients:

    • Gather all the necessary ingredients listed above.
    • Ensure the water is warm but not boiling, as hot water can damage the natural properties of the other ingredients.
  2. Mix the Ingredients:

    • In a clean spray bottle, combine the warm water and sea salt.
    • Stir or shake the bottle until the sea salt is fully dissolved in the water.
    • Add the coconut oil and aloe vera gel to the mixture.
    • If desired, add a few drops of your preferred essential oil for a delightful fragrance.
  3. Shake Well:

    • Secure the lid of the spray bottle tightly.
    • Shake the bottle vigorously to ensure all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
  4. Application:

    • Before applying the sea salt spray, ensure your hair is clean and slightly damp.
    • Spritz the DIY sea salt spray evenly onto your hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends.
    • For thicker hair, you may need to section your hair and apply the spray layer by layer to ensure full coverage.
    • Avoid spraying directly onto the scalp, as this may cause excess drying or irritation.
  5. Styling:

    • Once the sea salt spray is applied, use your fingers to scrunch and tousle your hair gently.
    • For added texture and volume, flip your hair upside down and scrunch the spray into the roots.
    • Allow your hair to air dry or use a diffuser attachment on a low setting to speed up the drying process.
    • As your hair dries, continue to scrunch and tousle to enhance the beachy waves.

Tips for Beachy Waves:

  • Experiment with the amount of sea salt spray used to achieve your desired level of texture and hold.
  • For a more defined wave pattern, twist small sections of hair around your fingers after applying the sea salt spray. Alternatively, use our styling fork to twist hair into an up-do and leave for a few hours- once you take the hair fork out you should have a perfectly formed wave. No heat styling tools required.
  • If you have naturally straight hair, use a curling wand or iron to add loose waves before applying the sea salt spray for enhanced beachy texture.
  • Avoid over-applying the sea salt spray, as this can lead to hair feeling stiff or crunchy. Start with a small amount and build up as needed.
  • To refresh your beachy waves throughout the day, simply mist your hair lightly with water and scrunch gently.
