Customer Reviews:

Great for Beachy Waves

This sea salt spray is amazing for creating beachy waves! It gives my hair the perfect tousled look without feeling sticky or crunchy. Highly recommend!

Leaves Residue on Hair

I was disappointed with this sea salt spray. It left a sticky residue on my hair, making it feel greasy and weighed down. I had to wash my hair again to get rid of it.

Amazing Scent

The scent of this sea salt spray is absolutely divine! It has a refreshing tropical fragrance that lingers in my hair all day. Love it!

Gives Some Texture

This sea salt spray adds a little bit of texture to my hair, but not as much as I was expecting. It's a decent product, but nothing extraordinary.

Dries Out Hair

Unfortunately, this sea salt spray really dried out my hair. It left my strands feeling brittle and frizzy. I had to use extra conditioning products to restore moisture.

Decent Hold

This sea salt spray provides a decent hold for my hair. It's not too strong, so my waves still look natural. However, it doesn't hold up well in humid weather.

Product Summary:

Sun Bum Sea Salt Spray is a hair styling product designed to add texture, reduce reliance on gel, and provide better hold. While it enhances texture, it may not effectively hold curls or maintain style all day. Users have mixed opinions on the scent; some are put off by a chemical smell and a stinging sensation, while others appreciate the beachy, coconut-like aroma.

This spray is known for giving hair a beachy, saltwater look without the harshness, creating the impression of having just come from a swim in the ocean. It's great for adding texture and body, even to baby fine hair, without causing stiffness or crunchiness. The product helps hair retain texture and volume throughout the day, even when styled in a ponytail, and imparts a cute, natural, and slightly messy appearance.

Priced between $10 and $15, the Sun Bum Sea Salt Spray is easy to use and works well on various hair types. It's effective on short wavy hair, adds volume to fine and thin hair, and suits thick, frizzy hair. Additionally, it offers UV protection and extends the time between washes by keeping fine hair textured and volumized.

When using this product, it's important to take certain precautions. It's advisable to wash hands immediately after application and to avoid using it on freshly washed hair to prevent dryness. Excessive use can lead to dry hair, but this can be mitigated with conditioning products. For best results, apply the spray to almost or completely dry hair to avoid greasiness or oily residue.
