Don't you love the way your hair feels after a day at the beach?
The other day I followed a link to a slide show with summer hair. I'm currently growing my hair out after 5 years of short. So I am in need of hair ideas. This article kept talking about beach spray. And the last sentence, after suggesting several that you could buy for a pretty penny, said my favorite words: Or you could make your own.
I love those words!!! I live for those words!
I googled how to make it. I found several recipes and decided to give 'er a try. I just warmed up water (important for the salt to dissolve) and added sea salt until it tasted like the ocean. Then I added a few drops of Lavender oil so it smells good. Poured the mix into a spray bottle and I was set. (remember to shake well if you add oil)
In my house we have three different types of hair. I have medium length, fine, with natural curl. Little L has fine hair with no curl (but two whirls at the back, I kept it boy short for years cause of those crazy whirls). Miss D has hair to die for. Thick, long with just a bit of wave.
Here are the results on our different hair types:
|(Maybe taking my own pics is worse than having D take them)|
|Look at the casual curl|
|This has a great messy look|
|We had to twist it. If you have no curl, twist it.|
So, go out there and make your own day at the beach!
*My poor sweet kids have never been to a warm beach. They only know the Northern Pacific. Those beaches are cold, but still so fun. Someday they will go to a beach you can actually swim at. I wonder what their reaction will be.
Profeanna had a good question but blogger isn't letting me post comments. (Soooo irritating) So I am adding it here in hopes that she'll come back. :)
That is a good question. Unfortunately I was using a salt grinder andn I didn't pay attention to how much I put in. When it tastes less like good salt and more like bad salt (or until you gag) that might be a good indicator. I'll try a new mixture and measure before I add. Then I'll get back to you!
