How to Use Salt Spray on Hair in the Winter

Alyssa François | 12 November 2016

Winter-fresh hairstyles ahead. 

As the seasons change, so does our hair care and styling routine. Out with lightweight hair conditioners and in with the hair masks we go. Just because it’s getting cold out, it doesn’t mean you can’t enhance the look of beach-inspired wavy hairstyles using salt spray. Salt sprays are stylers that can be used all-year round to create a tousled texture, add more grit to your hair before styling, and give you the coolest undone updo hairstyles.

Before you toss this much-needed styling product into the back of your medicine cabinet, here are 2 easy ways to use salt spray on your hair during the colder months.

2 Ways to Use Salt Spray for Hair in The Winter

1. To create subtle winter waves.

Winterize your summer wavy hairstyle routine. After washing your hair, use a salt spray, like the Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray throughout your hair while it’s damp. Instead of heading out and air-drying your hair, like you would in the summer, use a diffuser to dry. After drying, tousle your waves with your hands to enhance volume and fullness. Then set your hair with a hairspray that offers a flexible hold — like the Dove Style + Care Strength and Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray.

2. To add texture to updos.

Using salt spray for off-the-neck styles is a great styling hack for those who want to fake fuller hair, or for those who want an updo thats chock full of texture. Twist your hair then generously spritz damp hair with some of the TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray to create a tousled texture. Release your twists, finger comb to detangle then gather your hair into a loose low bun. Add pins to the base of your bun to secure and you’re done!
