I have very frizzy hair, especially in humid weather (hello Central Coast summer time). As I get older my hair is also losing some of it's oomph. I like to use beachy spray to give my hair a bit of body but don't like all the chemicals in the commercial products, or buying endless plastic bottles. I've played around with a few different recipes for this and this is the one I use now.
Salt (1 tbsp) - This is the ingredient that will give body to your hair. It may also leave your hair a bit stiff so play around with the amount that suits you. Most recipes say use sea salt but I use Murray River Pink Salt Flakes. It comes in minimal packaging and we also use it for cooking. This product also assists with the salination problem along the Murray Darling Basin.
Coconut Oil (2 tspns) - This ingredient softens your hair without leaving it feeling sticky. It's not a problem to spray this in the warmer weather but in the colder months it can tend to solidify in the spray bottle. I run a bit of hot water into the bathroom basin and place the bottle in it for a few minutes while I have my shower. You could also put it on the floor of the shower (as long as it's not glass).
Essential oil. (6 drops) Strictly speaking this ingredient isn't required but I like to use an orange blossom oil for the lovely fragrance. You could also use other oils that are scalp friendly such as lavendar or franckincense.
Warm water (1 cup)
Making the spray couldn't be easier. Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl, then when the coconut oil is thoroughly blended in, use a funnel to pour into your spray bottle. I just keep using the last bottle of commercial spray I had (several years ago) but I believe some of the larger stores sell brown glass spray bottles.
