How to Use Sea Salt Spray for Beachy Waves

By Christa Titus

Sea salt spray helps replicate the light, textured waves your hair can develop while at the beach, without actually having to visit the shore. This casual style works on all hair lengths and is a healthier alternative to getting a perm, as the spray does not contain harsh chemicals that can dry out your hair. Sea salt spray can be washed from your hair the next time you shampoo.
