Top 3 Natural Sea Salt HAIR sPRAYS
If you’re like us, once you started growing that beautiful baby in your belly, you started thinking twice about all those hair sprays you were coating your hair with (and inhaling) on a daily basis. Although we didn’t feel right about regularly breathing in a million foreign chemicals to achieve that perfect tousled look, we didn’t want to commit to flat, lifeless hair for nine months either!
After a bit of searching, we stumbled upon a few excellent, natural sea salt sprays that quickly add soft, beachy volume and texture to our hair while also using clean, simple ingredients – like sea salt and nourishing essential oils – without any toxic chemicals and fillers. Simply spray, scrunch, and go!

Why we love it:
We are such suckers for simple, chic product packaging, and Herbivore Botanicals doesn’t disappoint. We just love keeping their all-natural Sea Mist on our vanities for looks alone, but the product itself makes the purchase worth it. It doesn’t offer as much grit and hold as its conventional counterparts (like the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray), but it does give hair a nice beachy texture – as if you’ve just gone for a dip in the ocean. The non-toxic spray comes in two scents, coconut and lavender. We tried and fell in love with coconut! The tropical, exotic scent makes our hair smell amazing.
Why we love it:
When we started our quest to find the perfect natural sea salt hair spray, this one from Captain Blankenship kept making the short list of best reviews. All of the brand’s organic beauty products are inspired by nature, including their line of sea-themed hair products like the mermaid sea salt hair spray. When we learned that the founder spent her childhood summers in a tiny coastal town in Maine surrounded by woods, beach, and sea, her vision for her brand made perfect sense to us! Back to the product – it's made with a very short list of all-natural ingredients and gives hair tousled, textured waves reminiscent of a day at the beach. Plus, it comes with a pleasant, light scent.
Why we love it:
Although each luxury-apothecary product from the French Girl brand is handcrafted with natural and organic ingredients in Seattle, WA, all items are thoroughly inspired by the founder’s love of all things French. Their Sea Spray, for example, was created to mimic that effortlessly chic, textured French Girl hairstyle we all admire. Made with three varieties of organic sea salt and essential oils, it infuses our hair with a healthy dose of volume and texture. It comes in two scents, jasmin and rose.
