How To Make Your Own Surf Spray

How To Make Your Own Surf Spray By Barbie's Beauty Bits

If any of you have ever tried Bumble & Bumble surf spray, you’ll understand why I am in totally in love with this product.  It does some excellent stuff to my hair, especially the way it allows me to create gorgeous beach waves, with lots of body, lift, great hold,  texture and…. I could go on!  And if the spray isn’t enough to rave about, they also have a new line of surf conditioner and shampoo, oh the sexy matte hair, these products give you.  However, the expense of purchasing all them is enough to… gag me with a spoon!   So I had a rad idea, I was like, Dude make your own.  So here we go!  

How to Make Your Own Beach’n Surf Spray

  • 3 teaspoons epsom salt (I prefer this instead of Sea Salt, as it is less drying to your hair)
  • 2 squirts of hair gel
  • 1/2 tsp of a leave In conditioner (optional)
  • 4 ounces of hot water (the heat helps to dissolve quicker)
  • A spray bottle
  • Put the cap on the bottle and shake for 1-2 minutes or until all is dissolved and mixed thoroughly  

Other Primo Options

  • The first batch I made, the hair gel and the conditioner didn’t mix well. So, I remade the recipe, by warming up the two in the microwave prior to adding them to the others. 
  • More or Less Salt:  The recipe I have above with 3 teaspoons, gives you a lot of texture.  So you could use a smaller amount, like 2 teaspoons, if you want less texture.  If you want a beachier look, you could add more salt.   However,  be careful as you can dry your hair out,  causing your hair to become crunchy, making it harder to curl or flat iron.
  • Scent:  The leave in conditioner ( a Bumble & Bumble product), gave it a scent or you could use hair gel that has a scent. 
  • Save even more money! I also love Bumble and Bumble Tonic, which is essentially tea tree oil.  So, I decided to add some tea tree oil to another batch, how genius if I must say so myself, now I have both products in one!  Plus, tea tree oil won’t way your hair down, nor will it make it oily!
So there you have it dudettes, your own beach in a bottle; it’s like a day at the beach without the sand in your hair!
