Davines This Is a Sea Salt Spray

We fully appreciate when a brand tells it like it is. This Is a Sea Salt Spray is, you guessed it, a sea salt spray. But we’'re thinking they may want to tweak the name slightly——something more along the lines of This Is a Life-Changing Sea Salt Spray. Hair is left looking perfectly imperfect, full of sexy post-beach texture and volume. Better yet, this spray is paraben-free and moisturizes hair to boot.

Awesome sea salt spray
Purchased

I have thick straight hair that is heavy so it often looks very flat. After I get done washing, conditioning and brushing I use this on my damp hair. I flip my hair upside down and spray this in among the layers. Then flip back up to upright, spray some in again and shake it out. Lastly I comb through one more time and shake out again. I end up with a lot more volume than I normally would have in my hair and some texture/hold, all very natural looking. If I am at home while my hair is drying, I will shake it out and brush a few more times.

This also smells wonderful, I love it.

I am always surprised by people who think that sea salt sprays leave them with "sticky" hair. This is designed to mimic the effects of the beach/ocean on the hair and this is exactly what this product does. Your hair is not "clean feeling" when you get out of the ocean but it is soft, textured and has a lot of hold. This is what this product does. I can just guess that the people who are surprised by how this feels have never actually been to the beach/ocean.

A Beachy Vanilla Treat!
Purchased

I have used many sea salt spray hair products and this one is by far the best. If I use it on damp hair I get a ton of volume and texture after air drying and scrunching a bit. I'll even throw a little more in after it's dry to get the perfect piece-y beach look. I get compliments on how 'soft' my hair looks when I use this, I've even had one guy reach out and touch my hair without asking! It's a great product, you get quite a bit of it and I think the container will last me a while. The shine is a nice surprise for a beach spray, this is definitely not super matte or drying. I love the scent, it's like vanilla almond with a little sun and sand thrown in. Very subtle and not cloying at all. Worth the price, can't recommend this product enough!

mostly for short, pixie hair-do's
Sampled

Sea salt spray (no matter what brand), definitely doesn't work with my very long hair. It just makes it looks tangled. I think there are other products out there to give that beachy look without clogging my strands with salt. If I had a short pixie cut, maybe this would work better.

Works for curl but not great for frizz
Purchased

This product is quite large for the price. It works to provide my hair curl but I found it a bit drying and frizzy. I think it will be nice for humid weather in the summer when no style will otherwise work for me. I have kinky/curly hair mostly underneath layer. This product provided a very beach wave look for me. I am happy to read that it is paraben-free and will not harm my hair. The next day using other products my hair does not feel dry anymore.

Fabulous!
Purchased

This the best sea salt spray I've tried, hands down!!! It smells heavenly. After washing, I use detangler and then spray this and scrunch. I can dry with a diffuser or let air dry. Once dry, your hair is NOT crunchy. Love it.

Miracle!

I have thick, coarse hair that resists most attempts to give it waves and curls. The weight of my hair always ends up making my hair straight again but this spray has changed my life! I like to do a few pin curls on almost dry hair and a couple of pumps of the spray and I get those messy, beach waves for days. It's great on second or third day hair when I mist with water and repeat. Don't let the price throw you, it really lasts and lasts. I'm about at the halfway mark after 10 months. Caveat, don't use too much product our your hair well get crunchy. It's not the product, just a couple pumps!

Effective sea salt spray
Sampled

I liked the beachy waves it gave me, but the sickly sweet vanilla scent is overpowering. I kept waiting for the smell to dwindle down but it never really did. It's a shame because aside from the smell, it's a great product.

Not for me
Purchased

I was looking for a sea salt spray that would leave me with effortless waves that didn't feel like there was a ton of product in my hair. This did neither. My hair did not have waves and it had that crispy feel when you put too much product in it. I do have very straight, smooth hair, though, so I could see this product working for someone with wavier hair to begin with.

Perfect for fine wavy hair.
Purchased

I love the smell and texture of this product. I can get a shower at night, spray some in and go to bed. I reapply a little in the morning and I have beautiful, full waves. No blow drying, no diffusers. I love it! This is my go to "lazy day" hair product and no one even knows it! Love it! Almost through my first bottle. Will be purchasing more!
