DIY Beach Hair
I wish I had a house by the beach. Somewhere to go to when I need solace and peace and want to hear nothing but the sound of waves crashing against the shore. Having beachfront property will always be one of my dreams, but in the meantime, I just visit the beach when schedule allows and try to enjoy my tan. I’ve been letting my tresses grow long and was thinking of trying something new with it. Maybe beach hair…why not?
You know, that lived-in, wavy, textured, kinda messy look? I love that on long hair but I think it can work for most lengths. Beach hair would be great to try if you wanna do something new with your hair. It’s more of a casual style, so I wouldn’t recommend it for the office, but for casual get-togethers where you want your tresses to look pretty and sexy, I think it’d be nice.
Now, you can’t always and don’t have to go to the beach for beach hair. There are some easy, simple recipes and steps which you can do at home to achieve this. To see the ingredients and steps needed for DIY beach hair, do continue reading!
What you’ll need:
- An empty spray bottle that can contain around 8 oz. You may buy one at drugstores or Watsons, where there are empty plastic ones available in various sizes. Or, if you’ve emptied an 8 oz bottle of a beauty product, just clean the bottle and use that.
- Two cups of clean, hot or warm water
- One tablespoon coconut oil. This helps moisturize hair.
- One to two tablespoons of epsom salt or sea salt. Epsom or sea salt, which can be found at supermarkets, are preferable to table salt because they dissolve more easily. You can use two tablespoons if your hair is oily, and just one it isn’t so oily or is dry.
- Two tablespoons of vodka. This component helps lessen build-up.
- One tablespoon of hair gel or conditioner. This provides texture and hold on the tresses.
Steps to follow:
Take the bottle and pour in water. Add in the ingredients one by one. Then close the bottle and mix the ingredients together by shaking the bottle thoroughly. Done!
How to apply and style:
Spray the mixture all over wet hair, all the while twisting small to medium sections of hair, then let air dry.
Another way of styling is by spraying it on damp hair, scrunching or wringing each section or area you’ve just spritzed using your hands. After that you may air dry or blow dry it.
Or, if you’d like your tresses to look more wavy, after spraying the DIY mixture on damp hair, braid your tresses in a loose braid (remember- it shouldn’t be tight, since you’re aiming for loose waves). Leave in on until the tresses are dry, or even as long as several hours. Afterwards, remove the braid by running your fingers through your hair.
And voilà, beach hair baby! Enjoy, this is very fun to try. :-)
