DIY Beach Spray

Isn't James so lucky?


He gets to wake up to this every morning.


I don't smile like this.
I am not a morning person, and it takes me at least an hour a cup of coffee to get going.

And I never have the desire to get ready. I'm usually always in a hurry and my hair is long, stick straight, and takes forever to do anything with.

So when my hairstylist told me I should look into getting beach spray, because it's quick and easy, I was all over it!

It's really expensive to buy…but pretty inexpensive to make yourself!

Of course I hopped on Pinterest (of course) and found some!

Beach Spray:

1 TBS coconut oil (you could use conditioner too, works the same way)
1 TBS sea salt (must be sea salt!)
1 TBS vodka
1 TBS hair gel
Warm Water

Mix all ingredients in an 8 oz spray bottle.

It works best if your hair is already wet. But it still works on dry hair.
Just spray generously over your hair and scrunch it!
It really give it a "just got back from the beach" look.

I love it! It's quick, easy, and perfect for summer!

I'm definitely going to pin this and try it out! Only does the vodka smell go away?

I love it - looks great! Hopefully I don't run into anyone from the church while trying to buy Vodka. I'm not sure they would believe it is for my hair ;)

That's interesting, never heard of that before....but living in Scotland we usually get wet hair before we go anywhere near a beach!!

I wish I looked half as good as you when you wake up.
