The 10 Best Sea Salt Sprays to Elevate Your Beachy Waves

January 5, 2018

It's a rare occasion that you'll see me with pin-straight hair. I first introduced waves into my hair routine in college, and have never really strayed from that routine since. My hair is naturally straight, so getting the perfect waves was a learning curve at first (see how I style my hair in this post), but one that I've come to master over the years. Although I'm not a product junkie, one of my secret weapons for achieving that undone, tousled, just-off-the-beach look is a great sea salt spray. 

I'm so excited to be bringing on my amazing hairstylist and colorist, Mal (@hairbymaloriegreene), to offer her expert advice on all-things hair this year! Since this is the first time you're hearing from Mal, I figured a quick Q+A would help you get to know her. Mal and I have actually known each other for 20 years! She moved to AZ to attend school at ASU but is now back in New York (luckily for me) styling and coloring at Stylynne Salon on Long Island. 

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN COLORING/STYLING

I grew up with my family in the industry but started beauty school my junior year of high school.

THREE HAIR BRANDS YOU'RE LOVING RIGHT NOW

+ Schwarzkopf; I recently started using their BLONDEME line for my blondes and I am loving it!
+ Kevin Murphy hair resort beach spray is my favorite sea salt spray.
+ Fanola no yellow shampoo for blondes to get rid of yellow or brassy tones in the hair. It is the best purple shampoo (D - I second that! Mal introduced me to this and I will never go back. You can buy it right on Amazon here.)

FAVORITE HAIR HACK

One hair hack I love is the double ponytail. It creates the illusion of having longer hair and gives you more volume as well. A dry shampoo with help to give more texture and separation to the style once you are done. Section the hair from ear to ear to create your first pony. Next, create a second pony underneath and use a few bobby pins to pull hair form the second pony up. This will help to blend the two ponytails together and keep them from looking like two separate ponytails. (D - this is genius! See the look here)

YOU HAVE TO GET RID OF ALL YOUR HAIR PRODUCTS EXCEPT ONE. WHAT ARE YOU KEEPING?

The one hair product I could not live without is a good leave in conditioner. Having extensions, a leave in conditioner is so important to help eliminate tangles, moisturize the hair, and condition the extensions to keep them soft and healthy.

ONE TECHNIQUE YOU'VE LEARNED RECENTLY THAT YOU'RE MOST EAGER TO TRY

I recently learned the "901 highlight" from the girls at Nine Zero One salon and cannot wait to bring it into the salon and use their technique on my clients. Nikki Lee, one of the owners of Nine Zero, teaches this technique for how to achieve the "Nine Zero One blonde".  

CELEBRITY CLIENT YOU'D LOVE TO COLOR FOR

Cannot pick just one! Chrissy Teigen because I LOVE her personality. She would be so much fun to color for. Shay Mitchell because her hair is gorgeous or Margot Robbie!

 

 

10 Sea Salt Sprays to Elevate Your Beachy Waves
According to Mal, the most important thing to look for in a sea salt spray is not necessarily the ingredients!
Many brands will try and sell you based on what they're made of, but it's really about how it feels and interacts with your hair.

    Your wavy hair is perfection! I have never tried it on my natural hair before, but I doubt it would work the same for me.
