Has anyone tried making their own? This thread led me to google for whether I was using it correctly and I came across the recipe below from Huffington post. The only reason I'm tempted to try it is I like the idea of adding my own scent of choice via the essential oil. I might give this a try tomorrow!
1 tablespoon of sea salt (I read on another site that sea salt is drying and epsom salt is a better choice for this)
1 tablespoon of melted unrefined/organic coconut oil
1 tablespoon of hair gel or leave-in hair conditioner
1 cup of warm water
Note: You can also add a few drops of an essential oil such as lavender, mint or jasmine for a refreshing scent.
Step 1: Pour the warm water and sea salt into the spray bottle. Give it a generous shake until salt dissolves.
Step 2: Combine the melted coconut oil and hair gel (or leave-in conditioner) into a separate bowl, then add the mixture to your spray bottle.
Step 3: Add a few drops of an essential oil. Shake the bottle again, and voila! You’ve got homemade sea salt spray. Apply to towel-dried hair.
