How To Have Great Holiday Beach hair .. And Keep Your Hair In Great Condition Too!
If you are about to get away on a sunshine holiday and want to look after and style your hair easily whilst away, or if you just want to create the look of having wandered home after a great day at the ocean's edge, beachy hair is for you.
Beach hair reminds us of the beautiful heads of celebrities such as Elle Macpherson and Jennifer Anniston, and we are pretty sure that they use premium products to create their own beach head styles. There are plenty of products available which promise so much, like defining curls, adding shine, mending split ends, but we think it's so much more fun to create your own individul hair product. It's also a whole lot cheaper than buying a premium hair styling product!
If you want to create your own personal beach hairstying product, its pretty easy to do. If you are wondering why bother and not just pop out and buy something off the shelf, creating your own styling product means you can tailor it to your own hair type, add additional moisturising products if you hair is dry and also add your own perfume. As all the ingredients used are easy to find day to day items it will also only cost you pennies.
You will need:
- Small to medium sized spray bottle
- Warm water and a jug to mix ingredients
- Water (you can use mineral water here if you have it handy, but tap water is also ok)
- Sea or rock salt
- Hair gel
- Hair serum
- An essential oil of your choice (this is not absolutely necessary but it makes your hair product individual to you and adds a lovely perfume to your locks)
Next, its easy! For approximately half a pint of warm water you will need to add two good heaped teaspoons of rock or sea salt (the more salt you add to your mixture the firmer your finished product will be in your hair). Add two teaspoons of hair gel, one teaspoon of conditioning hair serum and about eight drops of essential oils. Mix this together until the salt has dissolved in the mixture, and pour into your spray bottle. Make yourself a cute label and there you have it, your own designer, beach hair styling spray.
We have tried this out ourselves, and we can confirm it definitely defines waves and adds texture to hair - ideal for a no-fuss, casual day-at-the-beach look.
