Ask anyone the secret to beach waves and they will most likely credit sea salt spray. The gritty formula amplifies your hair will and give it a nice piecey-texture. Truth is, you can have too much of a good thing. I mentioned in some of my summer-themed cards that salt is actually one of the reason why your hair fades, dries and becomes brittle. Which is why I recommend you to use it sparingly.
But, if you haven't heard, sugar spray is another way to achieve beach waves without the dryness. Who doesn't want beachy texture, moisture and a glossy finish? Before you run to the kitchen to mix your own sugar water spray, you must keep this in mind.
Sugar + water = bug magnet
The real secret is Sugar Cane Extract! It's possible to mix sugar cane extract and water to make your spray. If you want extra oomph try this one:
Recipe: Mix 8 ounces of warm water, 1 tbsp raw sugar, 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, and a dab of aloe vera gel into a spray bottle.
@jlee37 Let the jar of coconut oil sit outside in the summer heat for an hour – voila, liquid!
@allischaaff Great way to save gas and electricity! :)
@jlee37 Sorry for responding a day late. The notifications didn't show me I had a new comment. Anyways, microwave tend to dry out faster. You can take out a small amount of coconut oil and place it in a jar. Then fill another bow with hot water and let the jar sit in it until the coconut melt. If you're in a rush the stove top works better than the microwave.
@HairConfetti I used the microwave.
The only coconut oil I have is in solid form. I've melted it, but becomes solid again really fast.
