Video: Homemade Beach Effect Hair Spray - Preparation And Use
If we have to define THE hairstyle that wins all the votes in summer, it is the wavy mane "beach return effect"! In town or at the beach, the ripples always have an effect. To wear pretty "beach waves" this summer, the editorial staff of Deavita.fr will show you how. Because after all, we don't all have the chance to sunbathe every day to get Ariel's mane. Fortunately we can cheat! Sporting a pretty mermaid (or surfer girl) hair without having to go on vacation is quite possible. Here is how to make your own homemade “beach effect” hair spray.
Homemade "beach effect" hair spray - this summer's DIY to test
There are several techniques to consider if you want to adopt a hot "beach throwback" look without stepping on the beach. On wet hair, apply a leave-in hair care cream, scrunch with your hands and dry with a diffuser. The dream mane is yours! The same principle, but by swapping the care product for small macaron-style buns. With the salt spray, which we are going to talk to you about today, you will get the same results, except that more easily and quickly! Let's see!
How to succeed with the salt spray?
Your hair challenge every morning? Succeed in giving texture and movement to your mane with a few light and natural waves? Wavy hair is a favorite of every woman. And if the sea was the key to achieving this look, we would certainly take about two hours at the beach each morning to perfect your hairstyle before going to work. Unfortunately the reality is slightly different. Good hairstyles require a lot of maintenance. In the case of “beach back effect” hair, the salt spray comes to the rescue to give you a surfer's mane in no time.
The homemade salt spray for which hair?
Its biggest advantage? Unlike some commercial styling products and seawater, which tend to dry out and damage the mane, homemade salty hair spray is much less aggressive. It does not contain salt water from the ocean but does contain magnesium salt. Easy and quick to concoct, it is suitable for all hair types. If, for example, you have a naturally curly mane, a little bit of the salt spray will be enough to enhance your natural curls. On the other hand, if you have fine, shapeless hair, such as raplapla, apply the spray without moderation. The final effect will be most breathtaking! Movement, ripples and volume after a long day spent by the sea are guaranteed. So here is without further delay the complete recipe for our magic spray!
- 100 ml of filtered water
- 1 C. coarse salt
- 1 C. aloe vera gel
- a vaporizer
- 1 C. tablespoons hair oil (argan, kakui, coconut, macadamia)
Put the water to heat in a small saucepan without boiling it. First add salt and hair oil and stir until dissolved. Let cool and put the aloe vera gel in it. Pour everything into the bottle and shake it vigorously. Shake before each use! Once the temperatures are at their maximum, this spray will become the little darling to always have in the basket handbag (or the bathroom cupboard) and to abuse it throughout the day.
For ladies in a hurry, consider using lukewarm water and putting all the ingredients directly into the spray bottle before shaking it.
How to apply the "beach effect" hair spray to your hair?
How to use homemade salt spray and enjoy naturally wavy hair? For a canon effect, apply your spray to wet hair, or just after getting out of the shower, spraying it 15 cm from the mane. Take care to lift the top strands so as not to forget the parts below and think about the length of your hair. We remind you that fine, short hair does not require a lot of applications. Press the locks of your hair while they are still damp for a nice "wavy" effect. Finally, dry with a blow dryer, upside down. Pick up and presto, Ariel's sublime waves are yours. You can also apply to the roots for optimal volume and texture.
Note: please use it occasionally and not too often, as salt water has a drying effect on the hair and skin.
For ladies with extremely straight hair, forget about the diffuser! Wash your mane the night before and spray it with the spray while it's still wet. Form a high bun or several tight braids and let sit overnight. In the morning, your hair should be dry. Spray them with a little more spray and undo the braid. For more rigidity, spray with an additional spray and crumple the lengths.
