I have longed for those beachy waves..
mostly I am disappointed by the cheap
mixtures you can buy at the drugstore...
so I have been thinking of a splurge..
something like bumble and bumble's surf spray..
but at $23 for 4oz..
I haven't got it yet..
I thought I would try making my own first..
I found a few different recipes online..
what I ended up using was this one..
8 oz water
2 tablespoons sea salt
1 teaspoon gel
2-3 teaspoons of conditioner
I made it for just about $3..
plus I have tons of salt left..
I just used conditioner and gel I had around..
but a coconut conditioner would have smelt lovely..
It worked nicely I thought..
I twisted my hair while I dried it..
and used a curling iron to touch up some of the curls..
But it held nicely...
which I have trouble getting curls to stay usually..
and it feels nice and soft still..
Needless to say..
I will be saving $20!
