Summer may technically be over…but that’s not stopping me. I am the kind of girl that keeps summer going as long as possible — especially since moving to Los Angeles. And nothing says summer like beachy and — honestly — MESSY, hair.
I have a ton of my favorite beauty secrets here on the blog — most of which are all natural and homemade — so, I’m surprised I haven’t shared this already with you — it’s been a long time coming to be honest!
They thing is, it’s incredibly easy to create beachy waves at home. See, it’s all about the texture.
Texture is what makes beachy hair. Like I said MESSY. So, really, when you want beachy waves, you gotta get your hair a little dirty. 😉
You know the Moroccan Oil brand?? Yeah they use argan oil — Ok, confusing, I know.
Here’s the deal, argan oil comes from the Argan tree, native to Morocco. Morrocan oil IS argan oil, as well as a few other oils and ingredients…I’ll explain it in a another post soon, with some more benefits of true, 100% argan oil…basically argan oil is the REALLY good stuff — it’s like liquid gold.
So, add a little argan oil and Himalayan salt (or sea salt) to some distilled water, add a few drop of essential oils if you wish, and you have yourself and all-natural and non-toxic beachy wave spray you can use all year long.
- Heal the distilled water in the microwave for a minute or over the stove, until simmering. Add the salt into the warm water and mix to dissolve.
- Combine the salt water and remaining ingredients in a measuring glass and carefully pour into your spray bottle. Shake to combine the ingredients.
- After a shower when hair is still damp, shake the bottle up to re-mix the oils and salt, and spray the texturizing spray all over your hair, focusing on the ends, and scrunch your hair a few times, allowing your hair to dry naturally.
