What comes to mind when I say the words “sea salt”? Maybe you envision the ocean, cooking, or anything other than a hairstyling and grooming product like sea salt spray for hair. After all, salt can’t be all that good for your hair, right? Wrong!
The truth is, sea salt is an extremely important and versatile mineral and has been used in thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of different ways, including hair styling and grooming! Today, we’re going to talk about why sea salt spray is one of the most versatile and underrated grooming products on the market!
Before we get right into it, here’s a quick video on sea salt spray to give you a good idea of the results you can expect from sea salt spray!
What is Sea Salt Spray?
Sea salt spray is a grooming product meant to absorb moisture, provide texture, volume, and control to your hair. The result is a classic and attractive “beach hair” look that never gets old! All in all, a salt spray gives your hair rigidity and texture without any sticky gels, pomades, or other problematic hair products.
Sea salt spray is designed to give you a light hold, allowing you to touch up or alter your hairstyle throughout the day with little to no trouble and is often also used as a dry shampoo, allowing you to get rid of some trapped moisture and breathe life and texture into your hair without the added trouble of a shower.
What is Sea Salt Spray Made Of?
We can’t speak for every salt spray manufacturer in the world, but we can dive into the most common ingredients of our Premium Volt Surf Sea Salt Spray and describe what these ingredients do to benefit your style, hair, and more. Most of these ingredients are common among salt sprays, but there are some key differences that you’ll want to consider when looking for a truly quality salt spray to use in your beloved hair.
If you think that sea salt spray is just a combination of salt and water…think again! That would just be too easy, wouldn’t it? The truth is, salt alone is not good for your hair. Salt attracts and absorbs moisture, therefore pulling moisture away from something else – your hair.
Although this is somewhat the desired effect, it is also important to note that dry hair is damaged hair. This is why you must choose a sea salt spray that doesn’t just dry your hair but manages the moisture in your hair instead. This is why there are far more ingredients than just salt and water in a quality sea salt spray!
Common Salt Spray Ingredients:
- Various Sea Salts: Adds volume and texture.
- Activated Charcoal: Absorbs oils and dirt.
- Sea Kelp: Softens and hydrates skin: manages moisture.
- Kaolin: Gentle cleansing: fortifies hair.
- Panthenol: Promotes elasticity and retains moisture.
As you can see, a good amount of ingredients in our Volt Surf Salt Spray are added to clean the hair, absorb oils and dirt, and retain moisture. This is what you want from a quality salt spray because it ensures that the salt in the spray doesn’t completely damage or dry out your hair. The moisture is simply managed while providing you the texture, volume, and styling effect of salt sprays!

When Should You Use Salt Spray?
Now, let’s dive into why sea salt spray is considered a “do-it-all” hair product. Put simply, there’s so much that a good salt spray can do for you in terms of styling and cleaning your hair/scalp that gives it the designation of a “do-it-all” product.
Volt Surf Salt spray can…
- Provide texture and wave to any hair type.
- Provide volume by controlling the amount of moisture in your hair.
- Clean your hair/scalp with charcoal and kaolin to exfoliate and absorb toxins/moisture like a dry shampoo.
- Act as an additive to other hair products such as pomades, molding muds, and gels.
Not to mention the ease of using sea salt spray as a dry shampoo that doesn’t leave your hair sticky, tacky, smelly, or damaged.
Keep in mind that the benefits of sea salt sprays are most noticeable in longer hair (longer than 1 inch). That way, the waves, texture, and volume that surf salt spray provides are seen and experienced relatively easily.
For all of these reasons, Volt Surf Salt Spray is an awesome product to use on its own or alongside your other hair and grooming products to elevate your style!
