What is Sea Salt Spray?

Sea salt spray is a hairstyling product that helps you create loose, textured waves with a matte finish, similar to the effect of a day spent by the sea. It's a secret weapon for adding volume and texture to your hair while keeping it natural and effortless.

Styling with Sea Salt Spray

Here's a simple step-by-step guide on how to use sea salt spray to achieve beachy waves on Filipino hair:

  1. Start with Damp Hair: For best results, start by towel-drying your hair after a shower. Sea salt spray works best on damp hair.
  2. Shake the Spray: Ensure the salt and other ingredients are well mixed by giving your sea salt spray a good shake.
  3. Spritz Away: Hold the spray about 6-12 inches from your head and spritz it evenly throughout your hair. Be careful not to overdo it, as too much can crunch your hair.
  4. Scrunch or Twist: Use your hands to scrunch your hair towards your scalp or twist sections to create more defined waves.
  5. Air Dry or Diffuse: Let your hair air dry naturally, or use a hair diffuser for extra volume and defined waves. Avoid using a brush or comb, as this can disrupt the natural wave pattern the sea salt spray helps create.

A Note of Caution

While sea salt spray is generally safe to use, it can dry out your hair over time due to its salt content. Hence, always pair it with hydrating hair products. Davines OI Oil (from P1,250), a blend of Roucou oil and hair-fortifying vitamins, is great for maintaining moisture levels.
