Have You Heard of the the One Ingredient Sugar Spray?
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 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.
