Now that summer is just around the corner, I thought it would be appropriate to revisit one of our favorite DIY’s here on the blog, but refreshed for 2015.
Beach waves, mermaid locks, surf hair… whatever you want to call it, there’s hundreds of DIYS out there that will help you achieve the look, but I wanted to share one that’s a little different from any that we’ve done here on the blog. All you need are a few simple ingredients, and you’re on your way to getting the ultimate summer hairstyle!
What you need:
1 cup hot water ( I like to add 1/2 cup hot water, and then 1/2 cup chamomile tea. The chamomile will naturally lighten your hair! )
1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
1 teaspoon Hawaiin red salt
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel (best if straight from the plant!)
1/2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp argan oil (proven to help grow hair faster!)
A few drops vanilla essential oil
Add everything to a spray bottle and shake to combine.
To use, spray onto damp hair and lightly scrunch to form the waves. Try drying with a diffuser for added volume, or spray in your hair while at the beach to help lighten it!
+How are you styling your beach waves this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
