DIY Essential Oil Texturizing Sea Salt Spray for Hair
by Danielle De Guzman July 17, 2016
There are tons of ways to get those textured, just jumped in the ocean, effortlessly gorgeous locks. But who wants to deal with curling irons, serums, pastes, and bobby pins when you can simply spritz and go? The downside to those store-bought sea salt sprays is that many contain harsh ingredients, like silicon, which can cause heavy build-up in our hair and add toxic, carcinogenic chemicals in our bodies. Yuck! That’s why we asked our talented team of aromatherapists for a solution to our flat-out flat hair problem. Luckily, they delivered, and this recipe for a texturizing Sea Salt Spray is making waves. What’s better is that it can be whipped up in a jiff using ingredients found in the kitchen (and it's free of toxic chemicals!).
What You'll Need
5 oz Spray Bottle (PET plastic or glass)
2 ½ tablespoons of Sea Salt
1 teaspoon of Coconut carrier oil
1 teaspoon of Aloe Juice
1/2 cup of Warm Water
6 drops of Tea Tree essential oil
8 drops of Elemi essential oil
10 drops of Geranium essential oil
6 drops of Rosemary Spanish essential oil
Simply combine the ingredients above, shake and spray throughout damp hair. Fluff and comb fingers through hair. This recipe is perishable and will have an approximate 1-week shelf life when stored in a cool, dry, and dark area. A preservative can be added to extend the shelf life.
