A day at the beach in the salty seawater and warm air gives your hair body, volume and natural waves. You can give yourself this same effect by mixing up this simple hair spray. It can be drying, so try to limit how often you use it and make sure to use a good hair-conditioning pack weekly to keep your hair soft and flexible.
