ONE: In a large container, pour Aloe Vera Liquid. Place the container into the microwave and heat for approximately 1-2 minutes.

TWO: Carefully remove the hot liquid from the microwave and add both salts. Stir until salts have dissolved. If necessary, place the mixture back into the microwave and heat on 30 second bursts.

THREE: Strain mixture to remove any Pink Sea Salt that has not dissolved.

FOUR: Once the temperature is below 142 degrees, add Germaben and stir to combine. Once cooled to room temperature, pour mixture into spray bottles.

To use, spray liberally throughout hair and allow to dry. You could even try scrunching or twisting sections of hair for added curl. Always shake before using.

THREE: Section out a small amount of hair along the face. Tuck this piece of hair over the headband, and pull through the other side.

FOUR: Section out another piece of hair, including the hair you just pulled through the headband. Pull this section over and through the headband.

  1. Thanks for the demo Amanda! How does this feel in your hair compared to commercial hair sprays? Those leave hair feeling sticky/tacky and then crunchy after a few hours. I am curious because I always thought it was good for hair to be washed after swimming at the beach, so spraying salt into it seems odd. But then I seem to recall is was mostly that your skin felt funny as the salt dried on it, so maybe the shower was more to get rid of that feeling.

      Hi Margaret!

      This is definitely different than a traditional store bought hairspray. It does not leave your hair feeling sticky or crunchy. Instead, it gives your hair texture, and the salt does give your hair some stiffness. I have naturally wavy hair, but my waves are not very defined and can look frizzy. The salt spray helps to define them, which I really like. I hope this helps! :)

    I am anxious to try all 3 recipes. My question is how to put it all together. Is this how you did it? Wash with the shampoo, spray in the conditioner and leave it in? and then spray the sea salt and leave it in too? Or did you rinse out the conditioner and then just leave in the sea salt spray? Thanks for these great recipes!

      Hi Lisa!

      I’m glad you’re going to give these recipes a try! Good question :). It will depend a little bit on your hair type, and what kind of look you are going for. With the conditioner, you can choose to leave it in, or you can use it like a traditional wash off conditioner.

      If you have straight hair, the leave-in conditioner will most likely make your hair more sleek, and straight. If you’re hair is curly, our testers found that it also helped to combat frizz, and define curls.

      The sea salt spray is designed to be a leave in product. Personally, I have wavy hair, so I like to spray it on my dry hair in order to define my waves and give it texture. If your hair is straight, using the sea salt spray along with the leave-in conditioner may not work well, because the conditioner is smoothing, and the sea salt spray gives texture. Then again, when using new hair products, it always takes a little experimentation to find the right combination and way to use it for your hair type!

      I hope this helps :). If you’d like to tell me a little bit more about your hair, I would be happy to clarify my answer and make a more specific recommendation! :)

        I think experimentation is key here. I have straight, short hair that has been highlighted (dyed). I also live in an area that has very low humidity – very dry air. I have all my supplies now so I will be making all these recipes this coming week and will try it different ways over the next month. Thanks again!

    I just tried this recipe but using only fine sea salt as that was all I had on hand. I have recently gone ‘no-poo’ so I wanted to see how this natural recipe would fit in and it’s great! Definitely gives texture and much needed body for my more fine and flat hair.

    Thanks for a great recipe!!
