Beachy curls!

Super short entry but I had to share this with the world ASAP because good hair days are way more important than lengthy blog entries 😉

This is to make an alternative to Bumble & Bumble’s surf spray. Which is $23. This huge container of epsom salt was $4. And so was the hair gel.

You need:

  • empty spray bottle (I’m using my old surf spray bottle)
  • 2 tbsp epsom salt
  • a few pumps of hair gel (i used 5 because I get really product happy) *water-based: first ingredient is water!
  • water. I dunno, 3-5 oz.
Add together, shake, spray. And I feel like the salt settles, so shake before each use.
Result:

I feel the need to explain why I decided to do this: (lol) So summer is coming to an end and so are some of my best hair days. This is gross–but my hair looks best after it air dries from a long day of wakeboarding. It’s my hair’s version of “beach hair” and I think it’s because the lake water has enough junk in it to give my hair that texture that creates soft frizz-free slighty fishy scented curls-haha!

Bumble & Bumble has made the closest contender to lake water, but it costs and arm and a leg… so I did a little research and made my own. Just make sure you use epsom salt beacause sea salt and table salt will dry out your hair.
Good luck!!!
