Sea Salt Spray for Beachy Hair

How great is beach hair?  I love it.  Big, wavy and so much texture.  Sadly, we can't spend everyday at the beach, soaking up all the sun and salty air we can so here's an easy DIY product you can mist into your hair for those beach waves and texture we love.  

I always avoided this because of my bangs but hey - I think it works!  

Sea Salt Hair Spritz

2 oz warm water

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon conditioner

4 drops lavender essential oil, optional

Whisk everything together until salt and conditioner have dissolved.  Let cool.  Pour into small spray bottle.  

To use:  Spritz into damp hair, twist hair into 4 sections, turning away from your face, let air dry or hit with a hair dryer.  Loosen with fingers as needed.   Or spritz into damp hair and let air dry, scrunching with hands occasionally.  

Chocolate Cherry Sea Salt Cookies

These chewy little things have a lot of great things going for them:  chocolate, sea salt, olive oil and dried cherries.  Yum!

Makes about 16 cookies.

Chocolate Cherry Sea Salt Cookies

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon course salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup olive oil

2 eggs

1/2 cup dried cherries

pinches of maldon sea salt, for finishing

Whisk together cocoa, sugar, flour, baking soda and salt.  Stir in olive oil and eggs.  When combined, fold in cherries.  Wrap and chill in fridge at least 3 hours.  

Once chilled, heat oven to 350 degrees.  Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough and roll into balls.  Sprinkle a bit of maldon sea salt on a plate and lightly touch the balls to the salt to pick it up.  Arrange on lined baking sheet with room for spreading during baking.  Bake immediatly, for about 10 minutes.  Let cool.
