Last week here at Vertlog we talked about Bumble and bumble’s Surf Spray, a great way to give your hair that “beachy” look this summer season.
Bumble and bumble’s product works wonderfully, but today we’re going to show you how to make your own surf spray in just six simple steps. Many of these ingredients you may have at home already, and what you don’t can be picked up at the grocery store for just a couple of bucks.
What you’ll need:
- Sea salt (2 tbsp.)
- Hair conditioner (2 tbsp.)
- Bottled or distilled water (16 oz.)
- A spray bottle
- A funnel
1. Warm water
First take your bottled of distilled water and heat it to help dissolve contents. A quick zap in the microwave will do the trick. Be sure to use a thermos or other microwave-safe container. One minute for 16 oz. will warm adequately. If your warming container is too small, warm in two 30 second increments.
2. Pour water
Using the funnel, pour the bottled water into your spray bottle. We used a large spray bottle here, but an empty container of one of your regular products will also work well.
3. Add salt
Add 2 tbsp. of the sea salt to the spray bottle. Be sure that your funnel is dry first so that you do not lose any sea salt on the moist surface.
4. Add conditioner
Using your tablespoon, add 2 tbsp. of your favorite hair conditioner to the bottle. You may want to use the funnel once more to make sure all of the conditioner makes it in.
5. Shake well
Once you’ve added water, sea salt and conditioner your surf spray is complete. Wasn’t that easy? Now place the cap on the spray bottle and shake well.
6. Work in to hair
Spray the solution onto dry, clean hair. Work through with your fingers to achieve the curly, “beachy” look and dry to ensure it will hold.
Voila! In these few simple steps you now have your own surf spray compound. If this seems like too much work, Bumble and bumble Surf Spray is still available at Verto Salon & Med Spa for $23 USD.
