Sweet and Salty Beach Waves Texture Spray!
We just spent the last week at the beach...and you know what...?

I love salty sandy hair!

I love the thick beachy texture of salty sea hair!

I wanted to be able to duplicate it at home without adding sand!

Step 1: DIY Texture Spray!

Help soft and silky hair hold fabulous beach waves!
My beautiful daughter has oily but super silky hair that doesn't hold curl for long.

This easy DIY formula is great for keeping long lasting waves and beachy texture!

1 cup hotish water

2 tablespoons of honey

1 tablespoons of sea salt

spray bottle

Mix ingredients then

Pour into a spray bottle

Shake bottle before each use.

Step 2: Spritz Hair!

Started with fresh clean hair!
(her hair was dry, but you could spritz this on right after a shower)

She already has some natural waves...and a natural ombre look!

Pull up sections of hair and spritz some texture spray near the roots.
We're not trying to soak her hair...just about 10 mists of spray total.

Scrunch it up with your fingers a bit while it dries.
You'll be able to feel the "dirty" or as I like to call it "beachy" texture!

It's not sticky though, but the honey helps it hold it shape.

Step 3: Wave or Curl!

Now to style.
There are dozens of great ways to add waves or curls.

(Like this one by Penolope Bulnick)

I did it with a 3 barrel and a flat iron.

Gently pull up most of the hair from the ear lines around.

Section it off and use the 3 barrel to add waves.

After finishing the sectioned off hair,
remove clip and section off the next row,

repeat until all hair has been waved.

To finish it off, I used my flat iron to add some loose curls over the top.

Gorgeous! Set it with a flexible hold hairspray!

Step 4: Enjoy Your Beachy Hair!

Enjoy those beach curls and your salty sea hair!

Later on we brushed out her hair.
Easy to brush, no excessive tangles, not sticky!

Feels clean and beachy!

I'd be worried about bees wanting their stuff back :)

Haha, there's only so much time in the day...don't spend it worrying! :) I've had no problems with smells less than most shampoo/conditioner/hairspray or any other hair product! :)

The other side of the grass is always greener..I guess it's true! My hair is curly, When I brush off the curls it's wavy but I dream for dead straight hair ;-).

doodlecraft (author)shazni2014-06-27

You know, I had straight straight hair all growing up but it changed to wavy after I had now I just scrunch it and go with the sort of wavyness that it has. I can curl it or straighten it...but I rarely do! :) It's so hot and humid here anyway, so mostly it ends up pulled up in a bun--so much for super long hair! Haha. Oh well! ;)

:-D hair is in a bun 90% of the time. Btw. Congrats on becoming finslist in the wedding contest. If you win the steamer it would be real useful!
