Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ’em, which means the much-beloved Surf Spray unfortunately doesn’t make the cut) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written before about the best hair products for air-drying and oily hair, plus the best products for adding body to short hair, here we’ve rounded up the best texturizing sea-salt sprays on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best cheap sea salt spray

John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray
$6 at Amazon

“I am maybe a little obsessed with this now! Great product. The smell is like a blue coconut snow cone! Takes me right to that summer mood. It also works for its intended purpose. Win-win situation! I have naturally curly hair, and it turned it into awesome beach waves. Love it. I’ve ordered three times now and still very happy.”

Best sea salt spray, overall

OGX Moroccan Sea Salt Spray
$8 at Amazon

“I’ve tried several brands of sea-salt spray, and this is by far my favorite. Very economical, gives great texture, smells pretty nice. Spray it on damp hair, scrunch and curl with your fingers while it’s drying, and you’re good to go!”

Best scented sea salt spray

Davines This is a Sea Salt Spray
$28 at Amazon

“I LOVE this spray! I’ve tried multiple sea-salt sprays, but none did the trick. This spray makes my waves that perfect beachy look. You can’t use a lot, just one spray per area of hair. After showering, I usually tousle my hair around, then use four to five sprays for my whole head, never repeating the same area. Whenever I’ve used too much it did make my hair crunchy. So with this spray, less is more! I will continue using this spray!”

Tigi Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray
$14 at Amazon

“I’ve had this spray for a couple weeks now, and I’m just loving it. First of all, it gives texture and waves exactly as advertised. I have a lot of hair, but it is baby-fine, and I have the hardest time finding products to give it texture without making it look greasy and weighed down! This Tigi salt spray is so impressive though. I spray it on wet hair, scrunch, and let it air-dry. So simple. Plus, it deserves five stars just for the fragrance alone. I love it and will definitely purchase it again.”

Best sea salt spray for curly hair

Aquage Sea Salt Texturizing Spray
$13 at Amazon

“I love this product. I have naturally curly/wavy white hair. This product keeps my curls from looking frizzy and wiry. I get exactly the look I want.”

Best keratin-infused sea salt spray

Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturizing Sea Spray
$21 at Amazon

“This product is amazing. I have fine hair. I love to air-dry my hair, and this spray gives it volume and thickness, and it is perfect for summer! I totally get the authentic beachy look. This is going to be a staple product for me now!!”

Best paraben-free sea salt spray

Sun Bum Texturizing Sea Spray
$12 at Amazon

“First sea-salt spray I have used that does not get sticky, even when you use it on dry hair. Loving this stuff so far. Smells great and hair looks like effortless waves. I have very fine straight hair and it works wonders.”
