Hearing great things about this stuff...gotta pick some up at Ulta. :) "The perfect beach/wave spray :) Makes your hair looks like you were at the beach for a week, smells like coconuts, and leaves your hair super soft :)"
Several weeks ago, I borrowed this book from the library - The Curly Girl Handbook by Lorraine Massey. I was in desperate need of a haircut, was wearing a lot of ponytails, the weather was humid and atrocious, and I had read about this "Curly Girl Method" and figured I'd see what it was all about.
IT DIDN'T WORK - THE COCONUT OIL ENDED UP JUST FLOATING TO THE TOP AND HARDENING AFTER THE FIRST DAY. DIY beach hair: 1tbs coconut oil, 1 cup warm/hot water (to melt coconut oil), 2 tbs alcohol, 2 tbs sea salt (not table salt), 1 tbs hair gel. You can add more sea salt if you have oily hair, dont skip the alcohol makes the spray last longer and helps break down your hairs natural oil build up>>> I might try this one but with orange peel "hair spray" rather than gel
