Salt water spray for hair is excellent for adding texture and promoting natural waves that last all day. Try this DIY sea salt spray recipe.


  • 8 ounces hot (not boiling) water
  • 3 tablespoons Epsom salt
  • 1 teaspoon mineral-rich sea salt, such as Celtic or Dead Sea salt (you may add up to a teaspoon more to add stiffness to curls)
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon argan oil (use less if you are prone to oily hair)
  • 23 drops of essential oil of  your choice; rosemary or lemon are good options (optional but recommended)


  • In a small mixing bowl, add 8 ounces hot (not boiling) water, Epsom salt, sea salt, argan oil and essential oil. Stir well to mix.
  • Carefully pour the hot water mixture into your spray bottle. Use a glass spray bottle to avoid the contaminants in plastic bottles.
  • Place top on spray bottle and shake well to combine, about 30 seconds.
  • DIY sea salt spray may be stored at room temperature and will have at least 3 months of shelf life.


  • The essential oils are optional. Experiment with different types and how many drops you put in.
