Essential steps for hair protection

Salt water spray, the secret of wavy hair
- We not only intend the wavy waves for surfers or those who spend their day by the sea.
- Thanks to the salt water spray (also called surf spray), you can display the hair “back from the beach” effect without leaving the beach city.
- Straight from Australia, these mists reproduce these crumpled-looking ripples, naturally created by seawater and wind in summer.
- The salt in these styling products coats the hair fibre to give it more texture and an ultra-trendy wavy effect.
Salt water: Instructions for use
- Step 1: on dry or towel-dried hair, start by generously spraying its spray over all the lengths, avoiding the roots.
- Step 2: for those who have applied their spray to wet hair.
- Then dry their lengths upside down using a hairdryer while crumpling them with your finger.
- You can also twist and twist a few strands and dry them one by one.
- Step 3: (if you have applied the spray to damp hair): we spray again (2 or 3 sprays, no more).
- Then with the fingers, we crumple its lengths while making the hair go up. And voila!
The editor’s recommendation
- We can choose what we want depending on the hair type (straight, fine, thick, curly).
- The waves will not be the same.
- We recommend the application on dry hair for already wavy or curly hair and those on damp hair for fine hair because drying with dry hair gives more volume.
