All of these items are available at Walmart here in the U.S.A.
1 Cup water
Heat- just warm- not boiling. Just needs to be warm enough to melt the coconut oil and to help dissolve the hair conditioner that you add later.
1 Tbs (tablespoon) sea salt. Do not substitute table salt.
Mix the salt and warm water till the salt is completely dissolved.
Add coconut oil. 1 tsp. More if you like. I used 1 Tbs b/c I have hair that needs it. I generally use products formulated for ethnic hair. If you have thin hair don't use too much oil or conditioner.
Add 1 Tbs of hair gel.
Add 1 tsp - 1 Tbs of hair conditioner. Depending on your hair type. I used a Tablespoon but I have curly hair that likes extra moisture.
Add a few drops of essential oil to add more scent if you like- it smells nice without it though.
Whisk. Make sure you mix well to get the ingredients combined thoroughly.
Pour mixture into your spray bottle. I recycled one from my daughter's conditioning spray.
Shake to mix, and remember to shake before each use.
Spray on to damp hair and scrunch.
Here's a picture of it dry after being scrunched. You can also spray before bed and put your hair into multiple braids, unbraiding in the morning for more uniform waves.
