The Easiest Way To Get Beach Waves & Texture — Without Actually Going To The Beach


Even if you're not near the beach (or restricted from visiting one), you can still get tousled waves and texture at home — no ocean required. In fact, there are enough pro-approved sea salt sprays on the market that work for a variety of hair types and concerns.

Evidently, the main ingredient used in most sprays that delivers that texturized, messy finish is some form of sea salt. But, sea salt sprays on the market today have evolved and now offer up no-salt formulas. If your hair is already on the brittle side, a no-salt spray might be a better fit. "Salt can tend to be drying and damaging with continuous use," Naeemah LaFond, editorial hairstylist, tells TZR. In this case, try out Amika's Bushwich Beach No Salt Wave Spray or Dry Bar's brand new Spritzer Salt-Free Wave Spray. And there are specific ingredients to look out for if you're worried about hair concerns. To combat frizz, opt for a formula that includes argan oil or silk proteins. Or if you're seeking added moisture, you'll want a sea salt spray that contains glycerin.

Skip the beach and score luscious waves at home with any of the 16 sea salt sprays below, recommended by the industry's most sought after hairstylists.
