On a recent trip to Boots to pick up some more Lee Stafford hair growth treatment I decided to try out their sea salt spray. I'd never tried a product like this before so I was intrigued to see if it would work for me. Also, with me being on a heat ban at the moment (see my post explaining why here) I thought this would be perfect, as it works best when you leave your hair to dry naturally.
This product claims to leave your hair looking like you've just stepped out of the sea. Not wet & salty! But, with naturally sun dried and wavy hair. How does it work? It contains a promineral complex of dead sea salts & 26 minerals, which bring out your hairs natural waves. As well as this the product also contains sunflower extract to keep your hair moisturised & shiny.
The first time I used this it didn't go very well & I ended up putting my hair in a bobble. But, then after a little research & a few YouTube clips I mastered the beach babe look. On my product it says to spray it onto your hair approx 10 times. However, when people on YouTube read out what theirs instructed, they all said 'approx 50 times'. So I'm not really sure what that's all about, but I definitely find spraying it around 50 times works better than 10.
So, how did I use it? When I came out of the shower I first sprayed a little oil into my hair, just to keep it soft & healthy. I then combed the oil through & grabbed the sea salt spray. I pretty much sprayed every area of my hair & all throughout my layers. I then left it to dry naturally & scrunched my hair in my hands every now & again. Once completely dried I combed my hair with a wide toothed comb & there we have it. No more styling or heat was needed.
I'm sorry the photos aren't very good quality, but you definitely get the picture. Just for the record, my naturally dried hair is usually quite straight, with the odd wave here or there.
So, I'm really impressed with this product. It's a fab way to create a nice style without using any heat at all. The only down side I would give this product is how it leaves your hair feeling. Although it isn't sticky or hard , my hair just doesn't feel as soft as it usually does. But I guess this is a given when completely covering your hair in a salty spray. The other thing I'll mention is the scent.. I can't quite describe it, but it does remind me of a salty water, beach smell. However, whenever I've used this product my Mum always tells me it smells like I'm wearing a man's aftershave, haha. This doesn't really bother me, but I guess it will some people.
If your interested in this product you can find it at Boots for £7.49. Boots currently have a 3 for 2 offer across all hair products, so now is the perfect time to treat yourself :)
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
