Turn your hair into a mass of beautiful beach waves using this DIY sea salt spray for curly hair!
This sea salt spray is incredibly easy to make and contains just 4 ingredients. Instead of the aloe vera gel, you can use hair gel or even hair conditioner but to keep things natural, I used aloe vera gel.
We’re using liquid coconut oil for this recipe because the creamy solid one will clog up the spray nozzle when it hardens up. If you want, you can use another liquid oil like grapeseed oil or apricot kernel oil. They’ll work fine but for a beachy tropical island theme, I though coconut oil was perfect!
Let’s look at the role played by each ingredient in this DIY sea salt spray recipe:
Ingredients in this Sea Salt Spray and Uses
- Sea salt – Gives hair texture and adds volume to it.
- Aloe vera gel – Provides hold for the beach waves and curls to stay in place. It also seals moisture in the hair strands, keeping it looking smooth, wavy and textured.
- Coconut oil – Moisturizes hair and helps the sea salt spray stick to your hair.

- You can add other ingredients such as essential oils to improve the scent and promote more volume and waviness of hair. Use bergamot oil for increasing volume, lavender oil for moisturization and geranium for gorgeous floral scent.
- Store your sea salt spray in the refrigerator where it will last for a looong time – more than 3 months.
- If you want to keep it at room temperature, then you might want to add some vitamin E oil which is a powerful antioxidant that will protect the spray from going rancid or spoiled. About 1 capsule of vitamin E oil, punctured and squeezed in the spray would work.
