DIY Sea Salt Spray for Hair + Body


I’m so ready to go to the beach this year! The salt water and wind always combine to make my normally flat-as-a-pancake hair super textured and full of body. So I finally got around to trying a DIY sea salt spray for beachy hair, and, what a surprise, it works!

I don’t normally use hairspray or much product in my hair, but I’m now addicted to this stuff – it gives loads of texture and volume, plus it instantly makes me feel all beachy and ready for a pina colada.

Sea salt and Epsom salt have so many beauty benefits, from reducing inflammation to improving detoxification. Here are two simple recipes for getting the salt benefits for your hair and skin.

Naturally Lightening DIY Sea Salt Spray for Hair

Sea salt is great for oily hair as it naturally pulls out oil and moisture. To counteract the drying effects of the salt, add a small amount of oil to condition the hair.

Using chamomile tea and lemon juice will naturally lighten your hair as well. But if you use tea as a base, the spray will need to be refrigerated.

Rosemary is another herb that’s awesome for your hair. So feel free to infuse in a bit!

Green Tea Sea Salt Body Spray

Not only does salt water make your hair look awesome, but it can also firm your skin. You know how a day at the beach leaves your skin feeling tight? This spray is a version of the same thing – the appearance of wrinkles, pores and cellulite is reduced, but your skin won’t feel dry and parched. This is especially great for oily and acne prone skin.

Plus you’ll be absorbing the vitamins, minerals and trace elements from the salt through the skin. Sea salt has a high concentration of calcium, magnesium, potassium and bromide that naturally reduces skin redness, irritation and swelling. Epsom salts draw toxins from the body and are rich in magnesium.

You can spritz on your face or all over the body. No need to rinse!

Sea Salt Spray with Green Tea

I used green tea as a base for its powerful antioxidants, tannic acids and polyphenols that can sooth red, irritated skin as well as heal sunburned skin. Use distilled water if you don’t want to keep the spray refrigerated.
