What is the purpose of sea salt spray??

Okay, so as summer and warmer weather approaches, I am sure you have heard the buzzword 'sea salt spray' ... am I right? You may have been asking yourself(I know I have) what is the point of sea salt spray and what does it do?

Let's chat some history. Sea salt mixed with water has been around..well forever. Anytime you have gone swimming in the ocean, you might notice a different texture for your hair. I definitely do and then as I sit on the beach and it air dries, hello, I am all for it. 

I was looking at my mom's sea salt spray a couple of years ago and noticed ingredients that did damage like fragrance and/or just water and 2 different types of salt and no other nourishing ingredients. So it would dry out the hair and cause damage. This is why I specifically formulated this sea salt spray; to nourish hair strands as well as provide that sea salt texture. 

So, let's chat the why and purpose of incorporating sea salt spray into your haircare routine.

Sea salt is a key ingredient in sea salt spray(obvi haha), and it holds significant power when it comes to boosting texture and volume in hair. Here's how sea salt works its magic:

  1. Adds Grit and Grip: Sea salt has a gritty texture that helps create grip and hold in the hair. When applied, it clings to the strands, giving them more texture and making it easier to style and manipulate.

  2. Enhances Natural Waves and Curls: Sea salt spray encourages the formation of natural waves and curls by adding definition and separation between the hair strands. The salt particles create a slight roughness on the hair's surface, enhancing its natural texture and movement.

  3. Creates Volume and Body: Sea salt spray lifts the roots and adds body to the hair, resulting in increased volume and fullness. The salt absorbs excess oils and moisture from the hair, which can weigh it down, helping to create lift and bounce.

  4. Provides Long-Lasting Hold: Sea salt spray provides a lightweight hold that helps maintain your hairstyle throughout the day. It gives structure to the hair without leaving it stiff or crunchy, allowing for natural movement and touchable texture.

  5. Ideal for Fine or Limp Hair: Sea salt spray is particularly beneficial for those with fine or limp hair, as it adds volume and texture without weighing the hair down. It's a great way to achieve fuller-looking hair with minimal effort.

  6. Perfect for Effortless Styles: Sea salt spray is perfect for creating effortless, undone styles with a hint of tousled charm. Whether you're going for beachy waves or messy bedhead, sea salt spray helps you achieve that relaxed, lived-in look effortlessly.

  7. Works on Damp or Dry Hair: Sea salt spray can be used on both damp and dry hair, offering versatility in styling. For maximum texture and hold, apply it to damp hair before styling. For touch-ups or added volume throughout the day, spritz it onto dry hair and tousle with your fingers.

A STAR ingredient in my particular Mermaid Hair Texturizer aka sea salt spray, is organic sea kelp extract.  Sea kelp is thought to be beneficial to hair strength due to the vitamins and minerals it contains. It is a source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, plus zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron, copper and potassium. That is so helpful for strand and hair health. 

Hope this helps clear the air on what the purpose of sea salt spray is(basically adds volume and texture) and when to use it.
