FARGO – With this glorious summer heat comes plenty of humidity.

While I’m not about to complain about the weather (Aw heck, I’m from Fargo; I’m complaining), my naturally curly hair is kind of a mess.

Sea salt spray is a great solution. It’s pretty much what it sounds like: a water-based hair spray that contains minerals that give your locks that just-from-the-beach texture.

Salon versions often cost about $15 a bottle, so when the Catwalk brand left my face itchy and irritated, I decided to try to make my own homemade version.

One of my favorite blogs, “Henry Happened,” had a great recipe:

DIY Sea Salt Hair Spray

Supplies

  • Spray water bottle

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water 
  • 1 tablespoon Epsom salt (more or less, depending on your hair texture)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil 
  • 4-5 drops essential oil (I like orange for its fresh, energizing smell.)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Sprig of rosemary

Directions

Warm the coconut oil in the microwave for a few seconds, just so it’s in a liquid form, not hot.

Combine all of the ingredients in the bottle and shake to mix well.

To use

Shake well before each use and apply to damp hair.

Scrunch ends to create body and curl. Then let air dry.

Reapply as needed throughout the day to give more texture or tame frizz.
