Unlocking The Secrets of Sea Salt Spray: Grooming Must-Haves

The men’s grooming world is a wild one, and one of the craziest change-ups in the game has been the inclusion of sea salt spray (also known as salt hair spray) as a staple in a mans arsenal.

Here’s the deal, whether you’re aiming to find a hairstyle spray that cleans, styles, or adds a light hold and wavy look to your hair, sea salt spray does it all.

In this article, we want to look into what sea salt spray is, how you use it, what it’s made of, and much much more.

So, let’s dive in!

What is Sea Salt Spray?

So, what is it?

In short, salt sprays are a hair styling product designed to give you a “beach-hair” look. That look consists of wavy, slightly gritty, and textured hair.

Imagine having the ability to bottle up a day at the beach and apply it wherever and whenever you need. Easy does it. This spray gives your hair a tousled and textured feel that is usually worn casually.

Overall, these sprays are the perfect product for those guys out there that want to add some control and edge to their hairstyle without the stiff feeling of gels or pomades.

What Does Sea Salt Spray Do?

All About Sea Salt Spray

As we’ve mentioned before, sea salt spray adds texture, wave, and grit to your hair. Here’s a short list of what you can expect:

  1. Enhances Natural Waves and Curls: If you have naturally wavy or curly hair, salt spray accentuates these textures, giving your hair more definition and a more dramatic curl or wave. Those with straight hair will notice some texture, but not as dramatic.
  2. Adds Volume: For guys with finer or thinning hair, these sprays can add some fullness and volume.
  3. Matte Finish: The cool thing about sea salt spray is that it seriously does look as natural as a day at the beach. Unlike gels and pomades, sea salt spray provides a matte finish, making your hair look full and healthy without the shine.
  4. Easy Styling: Salt spray makes your hair more manageable and easier to style, perfect for creating a relaxed and “beachy” look.
  5. Light Hold: If your hair tends to have control issues (like we all do sometimes) salt spray offers a light, flexible hold, allowing your hair to move naturally while still maintaining its shape. This enhances the natural look without it appearing “stuck” or glued in place.

What is it Made Of?

We can’t speak for every sea salt spray out there, perhaps except for the universal inclusion of salt and water.

However, here’s what you can find in Volt’s Surf Sea Salt Spray that makes it a higher quality alternative that avoids the risk of damaging hair with drying salts.

  • Sea Salt: The primary ingredient that adds texture and volume. It mimics the effect of ocean water, giving your hair the gritty feel we know and love from salt sprays.
  • Water: Water is an obvious additive that helps dissolve and reduce the concentration of the salt to the right degree.
  • Hydrating Agents: In Volt, we emphasize the inclusion of hydrating additives that help manage and avoid salt spray that dries out hair to a harmful degree. These include things like Sea Kelp, Panthenol (vitamin B5), and more.
  • Cleaners: Volt uses activated charcoal and kaolin, a natural clay mineral, to emphasize and provide some exfoliating and toxin-removing benefits, effectively creating a dry-shampoo and hair-styling product out of a single bottle.

How to Use Salt Spray for Men

Using Sea Salt Spray is easy! Check out the following steps:

  1. Start with (preferably) Damp Hair: Although salt sprays can be used on dry hair as well, for optimal effectiveness, apply the spray to damp, towel-dried hair. Damp hair simply helps the spray spread around and overall creates an even application.
  2. Shake Well: Before spraying, shake the bottle well to ensure the salt and other ingredients are mixed properly.
  3. Spray Evenly: Hold the bottle roughly 6-8 inches from your hair and spray evenly. If you want added volume, spray the roots. If you want texture, spray the middle-ends.
  4. Go Crazy: Use your hands to mess-up, scrunch, and tousle your hair to enhance the texture and blend things well. For added volume, you can lift sections of your hair while applying the spray to get in all those covered or hard to reach areas.
  5. Let it Air Dry or Blow Dry: For a natural, tousled look, let your hair air dry. If you want more volume and texture, use a blow dryer. Blow dryers will emphasize the effect of salt spray, so use them sparingly unless you truly need it.
  6. Finish with your Fingers: When your hair is dry, AVOID the brush or comb. Use your fingers to mold or sweep your hair the way you like it to maintain the texture and hold that sea salt spray gives.


Ultimately, we believe that sea salt hair spray is a must-have in any mans grooming arsenal. It’s not only useful for cleaning, but also styling hair. And it can be done easily, anywhere.

So, the next time you want some quick texture, volume, and control for your hair, Volt’s Surf Salt Spray is going to be your best friend.
