No more FOMO for natural gals!

I know that I’m not only speaking for myself when I say I get major FOMO hearing my friends rave about certain hair products, knowing that I probably wouldn’t have any use for them. That’s how I felt about salt spray—until I found a way to style salt spray on natural hair, specifically on 3C/4A hair textures! I’m certain, however, that this technique can work for many others.

Read on to learn all about my experience with salt spray on natural hair.



How to Style Salt Spray on Natural Hair



Here’s a little backstory: One night I was so tired that I didn’t have enough energy to do my nightly hairstyle maintenance routine, which involved doing my hair in multiple two-strand twists. What happened the next day? I woke up to dry, tangled curls. Unfortunately, washing my hair was out of the question, as my hair was clean so I needed to find a way to refresh and restyle my strands. I had Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray on hand, but I never thought I’d be able to put it to use. So I gave it a go.

To restyle my hair, I sectioned my it into four and sprayed the salt spray on each section. Then, I worked it through my strands with my fingers. The salt spray instantly hydrated and softened my hair and it was super easy to detangle. After the detangling process, I flat-twisted my hair as I would normally do for a twist-out style and allowed it to dry.

Who knew salt spray on natural hair would work? Here’s my hair after a twist out with salt spray.

What happened next? I unraveled my twists to reveal soft, textured curls—just the way I prefer to wear my hair. Would I style salt spray on natural hair again? Certainly! You should give it a go, too!
