Salt spray is not recommended for all hair types. If you have curly hair, the sea salt spray may cause frizziness and dryness in the hair. One way to try this product on curly hair is to use it as a texturizer or by spraying it on damp curls before drying.

How to Make Sea Salt Spray
Let's make our own homemade sea salt wave spray to look like we have been playing in the ocean mist all day. Printable recipe card is below.
Then add in one cup of boiling water and stir it together with a spoon until salt is completely dissolved. Once dissolved and cool add 10 drops of essential oils for hair.
Finally, pour the mixture into an empty 8 ounce spray bottle or any other container with a nozzle. Shake well before using on your hair!
How to Apply Sea Salt Spray to Hair
The best way to use salt sprays is to start with damp or towel dry hair, spray a bit of the product on your hands, work the product in your hands, and then distribute the product evenly throughout your hair by scrunching sections of your hair then smoothing down the damp hair with your fingers. Just let your locks air dry, for the tousled texture of beachy waves.
Alternately, you can simply mist a little of the salt water solution on dry or wet hair to enhance your natural waves, if you have wavy hair.
Don't apply too much though. We want wavy hair and over application can end up looking greasy and limp, particularly if you have fine hair.
