I know everyone is familiar with Salt Sprays for getting that sexy just got back from the beach look, but a product that I recently heard about was a Sugar Spray for achieving the same effect. Salt Sprays can be drying to your hair and sometimes give it that crunchy feeling, which I’m not the biggest fan of. Sugar Sprays on the other hand are moisturizing so they strengthen the hair and give it the same tousled look but with a touchable feel. Sugar Sprays are supposed to work best on medium to thick hair, so if your hair is pretty thin you may want to stick with a salt spray. The recipe I followed was from Refinery 29 by Sarah Potempa, I’ll link it below for you
What You’ll Need –
- 8 0z warm water
- 2.5 Tbsp Sugar
- 1/2 Tbsp Gel
- 1/2 Tsp Coconut Oil
- 5 Drops of Rose of Lemongrass Essential Oils
Mix all ingredients together and pour them into a spray bottle.
I picked up my glass spray bottle from Whole Foods and I grabbed Lemongrass Essential Oil from a local natural food store. I used a Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Frizz-Free Curl Mousse as my gel from Target
This is my hair after using only the Sugar spray, I do have naturally wavy hair just so we’re clear here. Don’t mind the Snapchat filter flower crown, it just complemented my beachy waves so well!
If you just want to quickly test this out to see how it works for your hair, there is another recipe that simply uses sugar and water from In Sonnet’s Kitchen. Try it out and let me know what you think!
