Genuine sea-salted, sun-dried beach hair may be slightly more difficult than usual to come by this summer, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t regularly give your hair some beachy texture with a sea-salt spray. We’re fans of sea-salt hair sprays for bringing out natural waves, adding volume, and giving hair a subtly tousled look — and are especially partial to Captain Blankenship’s Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray, which the Cut’s Kathleen Hou considers a dupe for Bumble & Bumble’s cult-y, superexpensive Sea-Surf spray. Today, the Captain Blankenship is half-off, bringing the price of the travel-size bottle down to a very reasonable $7. Spritz some on while you’re sitting on a folding chair in your driveway and pretend you’re staring out at the ocean instead of … well, your driveway.
