    DIY Beach Spray - Made this today, and am IN LOVE! I have naturally curly hair that has always been frizzy and looked yucky because of the dry, non-humid, climate I live in. This made my hair as curly as it was when I was little! No frizz, either.

    Softer, longer hair. Coconut oil will do wonders. 2 spoonfuls of coconut oil, heat up in a bowl for 30 seconds, massage in to scalp, then apply it into your hair, leave it on for about an hour and a half.
