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.

Things You'll Need


Quick-Styling Method for Beachy Waves

Shampoo and rinse your hair.

Towel dry your hair to get rid of excess moisture.

Gently brush tangles from your hair with a wide-toothed comb.

Vigorously shake the bottle of sea salt spray for one minute to thoroughly mix the ingredients.

Hold up a two-inch wide section of your hair and lightly mist the entire length of it with sea salt spray.

Scrunch the section of hair in your hand by squeezing it and pushing the ends upward. Do this four times.

Repeat Steps 5 and 6 around your entire head until all of your hair has been misted with the spray and scrunched by hand.

Let your hair air dry.

Lightly fluff your hair with your fingers.

Lightly spray your entire head with hairspray to hold the style.

Braiding Method for Beachy Waves

Shampoo and rinse your hair the day before you want to style it.

Towel dry your hair to get rid of excess moisture.

Let your hair air dry.

Brush tangles from your hair with a wide-toothed comb the following day.

Vigorously shake the bottle of sea salt spray for one minute to thoroughly mix the ingredients.

Hold up a two-inch wide section of your hair and heavily mist the entire length of it with sea salt spray.

Tie the section of your hair into a loose braid, securing its end with a ponytail holder.

Repeat Steps 6 and 7 until all of your hair is braided.

Unwind one of the braids after an hour to see if your hair is completely dry. Re-braid that section if it is not dry and check it again in another hour. Continue to remove the rest of the braids once they are dry.

Hold up one section of dry, unbraided hair and lightly mist the entire length of it with sea salt spray. Repeat until all of your hair has been sprayed.

Lightly fluff your hair with your fingertips.

Lightly spray your entire head with hairspray to hold the style.

Tips

  • Braid you hair into sections that are three-inches wide for looser waves. Braid your hair into one-inch sections for tighter waves.

  • Alternatively, set your hair with the braiding method by following Steps 4 through 8 of Section 2 before you go to bed. In the morning, follow only Steps 9 through 12 to finish styling your hair.
