When the snowdrifts swell to biblical proportions, our minds often wander to warm summer beaches—and we’re probably not alone. That said, while we may not be able to control the weather, there are steps we can take to fight back against winter's cold. This year, our weapon of choice is the maritime hairdo: Reminiscent of a day spent seaside, this light, textured look can be achieved with a few quick tousles and a healthy dose of sea spray. Here are six of our favorites to get you started.
This husband-and-wife brand produces simple, organic formulas, and their no-frills sea spray is certainly no exception. Dead Sea salt gives hair a wavy, matte texture, while aloe vera and essential oils keep it healthy and hydrated. Fun fact: This versatile product is so rich in moisture, it can also be used as an all-purpose body spray.
Like Herbivore Botanicals, Davines puts an emphasis on eco-friendly ingredients, but it also enhance its products with a dose of clinical science. This aptly-named sea salt spray releases moisture over time, keeping hair superbly conditioned throughout the day. If you only have time for a quick morning spritz, this is the spray to use.
While anyone can appreciate a little extra texture, some guys make convenience their top priority. If you prefer the path of least resistance, this user-friendly spray will suit your needs perfectly—its formula is designed to work with any hair type, and the aerosol format makes application a breeze. If you’re concerned about its resemblance to hair spray, just think of it as a super-versatile air freshener.
This Swedish-made spray is the brainchild of Sachajuan, a haircare brand that specializes in boosting both strength and volume. While the formula packs enough salt to give hair a wavy texture, it’s also designed to maximize volume and body. This makes it a great choice for anyone with sparse or thinning hair.
Sure, it’s called “Mermaid Mane,” but how can you argue with a guy named Captain Blankenship? He probably sports an enormous beard, kept salty and spry with this all-natural spray (when he’s not off fighting a Kraken). Like everything a sailor owns, its ingredients are simple—sea salt adds texture, while aloe, glycerin, and essential oils keep hair soft and smooth. A perfect fit for the salty sea dog in all of us.
If you’d rather not splurge on a branded spray, you’ll be happy to learn that it’s easy to make your own. It won’t be as effective as a pro-grade formula, but it will do the job in a pinch: All you need is some sea salt, a moisturizing oil like coconut or jojoba, and an extra spritzer bottle. For the step-by-step rundown, check out this handy recipe from the folks at Free People.
