How to: Use sea salt spray


There are few hairstyles as attractive as tousled beach waves. Sundried sea water locks are undeniably sexy, and thanks to the array of salt water sprays on counter, you can re-create the look without stepping foot on the beach!

Sea salt sprays primarily add texture, volume and help form (and keep) waves. They’re also the perfect product for making “too perfect” curls a bit messier. Similarly to sea water, they assist natural curls and waves while giving hold and longevity.

Here, some tips to get the most from your spray:

• Sea salt spray should be the very last product you use. Once you’ve curled or blow dried your hair, apply your leave-in cream or serum (if needed) and finish off with a few spritzes of sea salt spray.
• As soon as you’ve sprayed it, scrunch your hair up a bit with your hands – this exaggerates the style you’ve created and helps hold the style.
• Always apply to your mid lengths and ends – if you spritz it too close to your scalp it could leave your roots looking greasy.
• Only a little bit is needed. As it adds texture to the hair, you risk weighing it down if you spray too much.
• Sea salt spray can be applied to damp hair if you’re letting it air dry. Avoid spraying it onto wet hair as the product will run off and have no effect on your locks.
• Sea salt won’t magically curl straight hair – it needs a bit of a wave to work with. Letting your hair dry naturally and then scrunching it up after a few spritzes works best.

  1. Oh wow those are some really great products, sadly I have never used any of them.

  2. I’ve tried the Toni & Guy as well as the Lee Stafford. The Toni & Guy works for me, Lee Stafford doesn’t add as much texture to my hair as I would like

  3. Oooh, then I am going to try the Lee Stafford one! I have eyed it a few times, and my staple was discontinued.

  4. I found that the Lee Stafford Beach Babe Sea Salt Spray leaves amazing results, totally in love with their products! glad it got a mention.

  5. Great article. I always had problems getting the tousled beach waves look right.
