Regardless of the season, we’re always looking to master the art behind perfect beach waves. What we want is a look that makes our hair textured and voluminous without seeming like we tried too hard. Cue salt spray, our favorite hair product for creating a more effortless kind of curl. Whether you have dark brown hair, platinum blonde hair, curly hair, or pin straight hair, we’ve never met a more inclusive look.

This beachy bend is flattering on all hair colors, lengths, and textures. Salt spray is a great way to mimic this ocean inspired look. However, as long as your product is aimed to texturize and volumize, you can easily recreate that sea salt effect on your mane.

We gathered some of our favorite salt sprays from the L’Oréal portfolio of products to help you achieve the tousled look you’ve been dying to get. Get a paper and pen ready because these buys are worth taking note of.
