Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, 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 products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)
Best-rated sea salt spray
“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-rated (less expensive) salt spray
Best scented sea salt spray
“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!”
Best sea salt spray for fine hair
“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.”
