Dense fog and crippling humidity don’t quite translate to beach weather, which means that beachy waves (you know, that sexy volume and effortless texture achieved by hours spent on the sand and in the sea) aren’t as accessible as they were a few months ago. The good news, though, is that you don’t have to fry in the sun for surfer-girl style – all it takes is a really good sea salt spray. They’re incredibly easy to use; all you need to do is spray onto damp locks, scrunch, and let dry. These are the ones we swear by at Savoir Flair.
Philip B 'Maui Wowie Beach Mist'
Hawaii hair in a bottle, this beach mist gives you that just-stepped-off-the-sand texture – minus the expensive plane ticket. Unlike other salt sprays, it doesn’t dry out locks thanks to a blend of pure botanicals and essential oils. Instead, it helps thicken the hair cuticles for a hit of sexy volume.

R+Co ‘Rockaway Salt Spray’
Combining powerful natural plant ingredients and vitamin C, this super spray literally does it all, and then some. Cranesbill and yarrow extract boost body and fullness, Indian balm mint protects and prevents color fade, Peruvian sage revitalizes and strengthens, and antioxidant vitamin C protects from free radical damage. Oh, and its bright, breezy scent of Sicilian lemon, green tea, and eucalyptus is seriously addictive.

Rahua 'Enchanted Island Salt Spray'
Transport yourself to a tropical paradise with just a spritz of this all-natural salt spray. Inspired by the lush Galapagos Islands, its sweet-smelling formula evokes a beach holiday with notes of passion fruit, hibiscus, and guayaba. These ingredients also work to strengthen the hair’s core, lock in moisture, and add shine and bounce.

If your version of beachy hair is less Blake Lively and more Monica from Friends in Barbados, then this offering from Balmain will be your new beauty best friend. Adding texture, body, and flexible hold, it uses silk proteins and argan oil to help hair retain moisture and keep humidity-related disasters at bay, while working to repair and protect damaged, dry locks.

Made with over 95 percent natural, organic ingredients, this magical mist leaves locks smelling like lavender while adding a boost of body and tousled texture.
