DIY Beach Waves Spray
  • 1 cup of hot coconut milk
  • 1 tsp virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tbs Epson Salts
  • ½ tsp of Sea Salt
  • Optional: 5 drops of essential oil of your choice
  1. Start by heating up on the stove a cup of coconut milk, either canned or homemade (I used homemade: add a cup of boiling water to ½ cup of unsweetened coconut flakes, let it sit for one hour. Blend and strain with a cheese cloth). No need to boil it, you want it hot enough that it'll melt the oil and salt. Add the oil, Epson Salt, sea salt, and essential oil if using. Stir until oil has melted, transfer to a small spray bottle and shake vigorously for a minute or two.
  2. Store in the refrigerator because it contains the coconut milk.
  3. Instructions for use: It works better on hair that has been washed the day day before. Spray generously to dry hair until damp, with a towel scrunch hair to desired amount of waves. Voila! You have sexy beach waves! Now go out there, you gorgeous thing you, let the wind hit your hair and feel like a swimsuit model!
If you wish to lighten hair, you could add a tablespoon of lemon juice or chamomile tea, or black tea or weak coffee to darken hair. This spray will keep for about two weeks, I make small amounts at the time and I've never had any problems with spoilage. If you are concerned you can always add a frew drops of vitamin E or a ½ teaspoon of vodka (vodka may lighten your hair). If you wish a stronger hold add a full teaspoon of sea salt.
