How to Make Your Moisturizing+Tanning Oil and Sea Salt Hair Spray

We can't deny it, summer is already here! Most of the time, I'm at the attic working in my studio which can get really hot during noon time. I drink more than 8 glasses of water to keep myself hydrated. However, when I went to La Union to enjoy the beach the other week, I knew drinking water wouldn't be enough.

So, I made myself a bottle of moisturizing and tanning oil. And since we had the basic ingredients to make a sea salt hair spray, I concocted a bottle too!

Tanning + Moisturizing Oil
1. Boil the water, and transfer it to a mug. Add 4-5 black tea bags.
2. Mix the rest of the ingredients - coconut oil, lavender essential oil, and vanilla extract - in the mug. For this project, I used organic vanilla powder from A Vanilla Story. They carry a wide range of vanilla products. You can get coconut oil from Casa de Lorenzo or Flow Shop.
3. Wait for the mixture to cool before transferring it in a spray bottle.

Sea Salt Hair Spray
1. Warm the water and add sea salt. I get sea salt from Lotus Pod.
2. Add lemon. It will make your hair lighter especially under the sun.
3. You can add coconut oil to moisturize your hair.
4. Use as often as you want especially if you miss the beach so much.
5. Wait for the mixture to cool before transferring it to a spray bottle.
