With global temperatures soaring well over 40 degrees, our bodies are wilting – not to mention our hair. Whether covered, curly or straightened, the heat is frazzling (or rather, frizzing) natural textures, however a few sprays of simple sea-salt can have the same impact as the curling or crimping of poolside preening.
Whilst we’re often told to protect our skin, our hair is often left to face the elements. But don’t worry – we’ve sourced our favourite salt-sprays that won’t leave your hair feelings matted, sticky or uncomfortably heavy.
