Confession. I style and blow dry my hair about once a month.
I’ll be honest most of the time my hair is in a top knot hot mess on the top of my head, I just don’t seem to find the time anymore. Between taking care of the little gingers and cooking, cleaning, picking up socks, exercising, blogging, laundry, getting lost in social media, picking up more socks my poor hair has fallen to the wayside. My beauty regime used to consist of face masks, long showers, shampooing my hair twice and blow drying it and styling it… now? I don’t even get to shower with the door closed. If I get all the suds off me in the 4 min shower I do have, then I consider it extremely successful. #momminainteasy
So I came up with a more efficient ‘get ready for the world’ regime. I use a sea salt spray! I wash and condition in the shower and then towel dry the excess water then spray, scrunch and air dry. I got the idea years ago after being on a beach vacation and in and out of the salty sea water, it seemed to add some much-needed va va voom to my extremely thin and stick straight hair. The problem was of course that I couldn’t take the sea water home with me… although I did put some in a spray bottle and try. (NOTE: it looked really gross and had weird things floating in it)
I started to look around for a sea salt spray that I could use after my ‘toddler infused’ shower’s for that wavy just left the beach look. I found a couple of different brands but they were either super expensive and full of chemicals or made my hair overly stiff and Rod Stewart-esque.
~If I couldn’t buy it then I would have to come up with something myself~
I played around quite a bit before coming up with the final spray, and I don’t think this is a spray that would work on all hair types but here is the basic formula I used.
Tip: for more hold add a small scoop of gel.
All you’ll need is the few ingredients listed below and a spray bottle.
