Beachy Waves...

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.. 
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.. 
great bonus.. 
Needless to say.. 
I will be saving $20!
