How to Make Sea Salt Spray— the Easy Way
Around the office, we’re pretty much obsessed with trying out new products all the time… but of course we all have our tried-and-true favorites. This month our very own Griselda T. is sharing her fave and the ultimate beach wave hack!
Unless you’re a real life mermaid, or spending the day at the beach, sea salt spray is pretty much the only way to get those sexy beach waves, right? Nope! There are are a few choices.
There are tons of store-bought sea salt spray options to choose from, but let’s be real, they can be expensive. Plus, the ingredients in fancy sea salt sprays aren’t always as natural or simple as you would think.
You can bottle up sea water on your next beach day, but that’s not very practical for year-round beach waves. Oh and those store-bought sea salt sprays? There’s actually a good reason the ingredients can get so complicated.
The thing is, straight up salt water isn’t all that good for your hair. The good news is you can still have beautiful soft beach waves without drying out your hair, or spending a fortune on sea salt sprays with too many synthetic ingredients.
The secret: Himalayan salt body scrub.
Griselda’s Staff Pick: Himalayan Salt Scrub
As Executive Assistant to the founder & COO, Griselda is closely involved with all aspects of product development. Literally, no product passes by without her having first-hand experience checking it out.
Our Himalayan salt scrub with jojoba oil is hands-down one of our customers’ favorite bath & body products. It’s no surprise Griselda loves it too. Here’s what she had to say about why she picked Himalayan salt scrub out of all the products we offer.
“Firstly, the Himalayan salt grains are very fine, so it buffs and polishes my skin without feeling scratchy or too rough. Some other salt scrubs I’ve tried are just so [pausing] aggressive.” She said laughing.
“I also like that Himalayan salt has tons of minerals without any additives. That’s really important to me.”
I asked her how often she uses the Himalayan scrub. “Oh at least 2-3 times a week. In the winter it keeps my skin from getting too dry and itchy. Right now the sun is just starting to come out more and I want to be ready for warmer weather!”
Was there anything else she wanted to add? “What I really can’t say enough about is how moisturizing our Himalayan salt scrub is. Jojoba oil is one of my favorite beauty oils to use on my skin and the fact that it’s a main ingredient just means everything.”
“It’s basically one-stop-shopping. Scrub, let sit a minute or two, and that’s it. My skin feels smooth and soft all in one go.”
What Makes a Good Sea Salt Spray?
To make a good, natural sea salt spray, you usually need sea salt (of course), nourishing oils like argan or jojoba oil to moisturize and seal your hair, and essential oils or fragrances to make it smell good.
That’s a lot of ingredients and measuring for easy-breezy beach waves. Enter Griselda’s amazing sea salt spray hack featuring Himalayan salt scrub. It’s so simple and genius that once you hear it, you can’t imagine why you didn’t think of it yourself.
Firstly, authentic pink Himalayan salt is mined from ancient sea beds deep below the Himalayan mountains. Himalayan salt has been untouched for literally thousands of years, which means it’s not exposed to the same modern pollutants as sea salt sprays made with salt from the ocean.
Secondly, as Griselda pointed out, one of the main ingredients in this particular Himalayan salt scrub is jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is used in bath & body products because it moisturizes without leaving a greasy residue.
Guess what— that means it’s great for moisturizing dry hair too. Using Himalayan salt scrub with jojoba oil for your beach wave sea salt spray is the best of all worlds.
You’re creating the desired texture with the sea salt spray while also moisturizing your hair. This means soft sexy beach waves, not crunchy brittle ones.
The Easiest Sea Salt Spray You’ll Ever Make
Add 1 tablespoon Himalayan Salt Scrub, to a 4 ounce spray bottle. Fill the bottle the rest of the way with water. Shake before using. Done.
No really, it’s that simple. What are you waiting for? Grab your Himalayan salt scrub and get to mixing!
