All About Sea Salt Spray

What is Sea Salt Spray?
If you love that gorgeously tousled, just-come-out-of-the-ocean look and crave it all year round, a sea salt texture spray is for you. Sea salt hair products are a type of styling spray that can add loads of casual texture and volume to hair and give you the envious appearance that you have just spent a long day at the beach.

The secret to a salt spray lies in the ingredients. They are commonly made with a basic formula of water, sea salt, and Epsom or other salts. Many brands also include extra ingredients such as coconut oil to nourish and soften hair while leaving a tantalisingly tropical scent behind.

The way that hair salt sprays work is quite simple. The natural water molecules in the hair are attracted to the sea salt and absorb it through the hair cuticles. This causes them to dry out and shrink the strands which creates a tousled, wavy effect that also adds volume while providing a flexible hold. 

A saltwater hair spray is amazing when used on naturally wavy hair as it builds on the wave pattern you already have and adds more body. However, you can also use sea salt spray on straight hair and fine hair to give it a boost and create some lived-in texture to make your hair appear fuller. At Hairhouse, you can find sea salt hair spray for men and women by iconic brands like Eleven Australia, Nak Hair and Alfaparf

How Do You Use Sea Salt Spray?
Saltwater hair products are designed to give you casual, surfer-style tresses that look natural and effortless. Like most styling products, there’s a right way to use them so that you get the best results possible.

Sea salt for hair actually performs better when used on slightly unclean hair. This is because unwashed hair has more texture and grip for the beach waves spray to cling onto and add even more body. If your hair is a bit oily, try using a dry shampoo beforehand to refresh it.

To use a sea salt spray, follow these super easy steps:

1.    Start with damp hair that has been towel-dried
2.    Run a comb through your hair to remove tangles and separate the hair follicles in preparation
3.    Shake your chosen sea salt spray bottle well and spritz your hair in sections. Pay close attention to the roots if you are looking for volume
4.    Start styling by scrunching up your hair and twisting the hair strands to create sexily tousled waves
5.    To set your waves, you can dry your hair with a blow dryer set on cool. Use a diffuser to keep the waves separated if desired. You can also just leave your waves to dry naturally. Apply a hair spray for further hold.

Is Sea Salt Spray Good for Your Hair?
A natural sea salt spray will create divine texture and body in both coarse and fine hair. For coarse hair, it adds more thickness and makes it more manageable to style. For fine hair, the sea salt plumps the strands to make them appear fuller and gives a lift that can last through the day. If you have oily hair, the salt will absorb excess sebum and help you to go longer between washes.

For those with dry, damaged, or frizzy hair, you need to choose a spray that is designed with your hair type in mind. The sea salt in a saltwater spray absorbs the natural oils in your hair which can leave it feeling drier and more frazzled. As such, the best salt spray is one that is also infused with botanical oils and other moisturising ingredients that can nourish and hydrate the hair while still giving you the look you want.

Goldwell StyleSign Curls & Waves Surf Oil is an excellent choice. Pureology Style + Protect Beach Waves Sugar Spray is another great alternative to sea salt spray that uses Tuberose, Almond Milk and Cedarwood to soften hair and Antifade Complex to prevent fade in coloured hair

You can also try using a leave-in conditioner, hair mask or other hair oil to counteract any dryness that may occur while using a sea salt spray for hair.
