Use these staples in your beauty routine!

Summer is here — and that means shorts, sandals, bronzed (or perhaps burned) skin, and loose, free summer hair. Yet not all of us were blessed with breezy surfer-like hair, and therefore many women rush to the department store every summer to purchase wave spray, which texturizes hair and gives the look of just-got-back-from-the-beach hair. These pricey products can cost up to $50, but you can make one out of staples you already have in your cupboard for a fraction of the cost!

All you need to make this beauty-enhancing spray is sea salt, conditioner (any type works), hair gel, coconut oil, vegetable oil, a spray bottle (available at any drugstore), and hot water. Mix the wet and dry ingredients separately, just as you would do with a baking recipe, and then mix everything together. Finish off with an essential oil of your choice, such as lavender or vanilla, if you would like your spray to give off a sweet scent.
