This fabulous rose scented DIY sea salt spray for hair gives your hair volume and texture any time you need it! Simply spray it on then scrunch for sexy tousled beach waves.

My sea salt spray recipe is inspired by Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, a product which has become one of my go to hair staples based on affordability and performance. Like Not Your Mother’s sea salt spray, my sea salt spray recipe also contains dimethicone to counteract the drying effect salt can have on hair. (Their product also contains Sea Kelp Extract, however I don’t currently have this in my ingredient stash. But don’t be afraid to try it on your own!) Rose water is also used to give it its fabulous fragrance.

If you prefer not to use silicones in your hair care products, you can simply omit both the Dimethicone (silicone) and the Polysorbate 20 (emulsifier) which is used to keep the Dimethicone mixed with the water. For more hold double the sea salt and omit the Epsom salt. For less hold do the opposite.

DIY Sea Salt Spray for Hair

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

3.25 oz. distilled hot water
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon Epsom salt
1 ml Dimethicone
1 ml Polysorbate 20
.25 oz. rose water (or rose hydrosol)

Instructions:

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the distilled water into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave until hot but not quite ready to boil.

Use measuring spoons to measure out the salts then stir into the hot water until the salt has dissolved completely.

Now, using a graduated transfer pipette for each, measure out the Dimethicone and Polysorbate 20 and stir into the salt water mixture.

Finally weigh out the rose water and stir into your DIY sea salt spray for hair. (As this is a water based product, you may also want to consider using a preservative such as Optiphen ND to prevent the growth of bacteria, fungus and yeast.)

This fabulous rose scented DIY sea salt spray for hair gives your hair volume and texture any time you need it! Simply spray it on then scrunch for sexy tousled beach waves.

Using a small funnel pour the sea salt spray into a 4 oz. glass bottle and close with a fingertip mister. Shake well then spritz onto hair as desired. You can use your new DIY sea salt spray on damp, towel dried hair or dry hair for different looks.

  1. I just want to let you know that I am so impressed by you!! Not only can you teach old dogs new tricks, you make them want to learn!!! Bravo! Keep up the good work!

  2. Do you use this spray as a hair spray, or simply for scenting your hair in between washes? I’d love to try making this, but just want to make sure I know what I’m making…LOL! Since I haven’t done anything like this before, where would I buy the Dimethicone and Polysorbate 20? Thank you Rebecca!

  3. What’s the shelf life? Or does it not go bad because of the salt? Can you substitute the dimethicone for glycerin? Thanks!

    • The shelf life is always the same as the shelf life of the product with the shortest shelf life. Glycerin isn’t the same thing as dimethicone and I really have no idea what that would do to hair. I imagine it’d be too heavy of product.
