Memorial Day Weekend is here! I can not wait to go to the beach and celebrate. With sun-kissed skin, salty hair, and the taste of the ocean still on your tongue, you and your crew pile into the car. Windows down, tunes up, the drive home from a day spent on the beach is nothing short of magical. But if you want to have the beach everyday make this beach spray and apply to your hair. I promise it will lift your mood and you will look amazing too!
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon natural sea salt
2 teaspoons organic coconut oil
2 teaspoons aloe vera gel (straight from the plant if possible!)
5-10 drops essential oil of your choice (I used lavender)
(The shells & lavender are inside the bottle for decorative purposes only!)
To make, combine all ingredients into an empty spray bottle. Screw on the cap, shake well, and you’re ready to go! Experiment with different types of essential oils to find which scent you love most. I stuck with lavender this time, which smells beautiful in combination with the coconut oil, but I think this would be great with some lemongrass or other citrus scents, as well.
* To use, just spray the mixture onto damp hair, scrunch to form piecey waves, and then let air dry. Voila! You’re a beach babe.I also like to spray this in my hair near the roots when it’s already dry, and then blast with a hairdryer for added texture and volume.
Summer is so close I can smell it. Now that school is close to ending, eight days! YAY! I will be able to post once a week (back to my normal schedule). I can not wait for this summer. Enjoy your Memorial Day.
