I was a fool to spend to $20US on salt h20. All this did was add a tacky film to my hair, much like Avene Thermal h20 which I also dislike. Really did nothing for the texture or beachiness of my hair. Do yourself a favor and pass on this one.

The reason I bought this product was because it was a *natural* sea salt spray, containing very simple natural ingredients (water, lavender and sea salt). I had previously been using Lee Stafford's sea salt spray - I was happy with the results that gave, but I felt like I was inhaling a massive amount of parabens on a daily basis (as it has a million of them), what with blow-drying hair after having sprayed loads in. So this product appealed because it didn't matter if I inhaled loads of it regularly!
My hair is very fine, flyaway hair usually - but it is also thick, so there's a lot of it. It looks awful when it is flat and volume-less, so I am on a constant quest to find ways to inject volume into it and have tried literally everything.
I used the sea salt spray by putting some mousse in my hair first, then liberally spraying the sea salt spray in. I found you use A LOT of this product (or it doesn't have much effect), so I literally drench my hair in it and comb it through. Given that it is around £16/bottle (for essentially salty water), that is pretty pricey. I then blow dry upside down, with a diffuser, still scrunching hair.
No matter how much I spray in, I find that this leaves my hair rather 'soft' feeling - which is perhaps the result of the lavender oil in it. This 'softness' also tends to make the volume fall out faster (as opposed to a slight crunchyness which holds it in). After having used half a bottle, I wondered if perhaps there wasn't enough sea salt in it and maybe that was why it wasn't as good as other products I've tried. So I ground up a tablespoon of sea salt and added that to it - no difference!
Over all - not as much volume as other sea salt sprays; leaves hair feeling soft. Some people might like that, but the downside of it is that the volume falls out faster.

This is such a con--salt and lavender essential oil--for 16 pounds???

I love this product and the result it gives my hair, however it's just salt water and essential oil, so I will just make it next time instead of paying high prices for this.

LOVE this spray! I use it on my 2 daughters hair at night after their bath and before I braid their hair. RESULT: their hair has a pretty wave for school the next day. Plus I use it on my hair. I spray sections before I use the curling iron and it holds my curl longer!

i bought this because i wanted a beachy curl texture wave look to my hair. i feel that it does give me that look for the most part. i dont really like the smell when it goes on my hair but i dont think the smell stays on my hair very long. the reason i would not purchase again is becuase i dont think i will run out of the one i have becuase i dont think you need to use a lot or it makes your hair feel gross.

A nice idea as a take on all the salt sprays that are on the market, but after a few uses, I never reached for it again. You definitely need to have some texture to begin with for this product to work; my hair is pretty much straight and very dense, so this product just made it sticky and clumpy. Yes, it's drying, as all salt sprays are, and the bottle specifically says to use a deep conditioner/moisturizer if you use this regularly. I won't be repurchasing, but I'm leaving a neutral rating b/c although it did nothing for me, I think I used it incorrectly, and should have curled or braided my hair first to produce some texture for the spray to work with. Expensive for what it is, very nice packaging.

This is basically lavender-scented salt water, which would have been ok if it had made my hair look like I spent a day at the beach. Instead, I got hair that had flaky dried salt from where the spray dried and a really really really itchy scalp. Also, no discernible increase in volume either.
I could have bottled this myself from the salt I have in my kitchen and it might have been better, or at least just as bad.

I had high hopes for this and I'm sad to say I hate this stuff! I have pretty wavy/curly hair and I thought it would make my curls look amazing... uh no. It didn't do anything for my hair but make it look dry and brittle. It doesn't smell that great if you ask me. The thing I hate the most is how it feels on my hands if I touch my hair. GROSS!!! It's so nasty if you get your hair in your mouth by mistake it tastes like you poured a jar of salt in your mouth. Double GROSS.

Of all the beach-hair styling products on the market, this is my favorite! My hair is thick, heavy and slippery. A few blasts of this spray gives it that textured bedhead thing without making my hair dry, matted or tangled. The ingredients are very basic (I'm almost embarrassed that I don't try and make it at home myself - I might give it a go).
Ingredients: aqua (purified, deionized water), maris sal (sea salt), essential oil of lavandula angustifolia (lavender)

I really love this stuff. I have very fine, very straight, medium length hair. I picked this up on a whim when I got some John Masters shampoo (love it as well!). The bottle sprays a very fine mist and can be used on either damp or dry hair. I've used it both ways. A little goes a LOOONG way! It is great for adding massive texture to my hair. Very faint smell. If used on damp hair, it gives really nice body/texture. If used on dry hair, you can scrunch it in various ways. If you use too much, it will make your hair feel dry, so I'm careful to just use a little (hence the -1 lippie). I will definitely buy this again...which is saying something for me. The greatest bonus is that it's made from natural ingredients. I picked mine up at Earth Fare. It rocks!

Oh my god, I HATE this so much!! It dries my hair out like no tomorrow, and I've tried it with other moisturizing products, as well as alone. No, my hair looks awesome and sexy after a day at the beach, not like I've been rubbing my head against a balloon. Grrr, waste of money. I do like the spray bottle, and will be washing it out to use for other products.

Don't know why I like this product but I do. 5 or 6 sprays in damp hair gives insane texture and body. It makes my wavy, coarse, light golden brown hair look even more wild and unkempt. Great for making your hair look like you seriously don't care al la mary-kate olsen... and a lot less expensive than a pair of balenciaga platforms. Moderately pricey for a hair product, but i'm all about afforable luxury.

I have medium- fine hair with a lot of bend to it ( my ends never stay straight). This is one of the very few products that doesn't weigh my hair down and I think it works better than the Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray I used to use. It's also much healthier. I just generously mist my towel dried hair and scrunch. It brings out the bend and wave and defines my layers. It's great for lazy hair styling people- like me!

I am blown away by this item. It is fairly new to the John Masters line and contains just three ingredients - water, sea salt and lavender. Wow wow wow. I have just above shoulder length very fine hair made even finer by recurrent iron deficiency anemia.
I have some natural curl, again dimished by health issues, but have never found ANYTHING that doesn't weight my hair down - despite all the promises. I find my hair responds better to being handling hardly at all.
I decided to try this - well why not - I'm a natural product girl and prefer not to load my skin and hair with chemicals- it is amazing. Having never been one for the poker straight hair trend I've always struggled to find a product to add volume and encourage curl with no greasiness and that lasts more than one day. This product does just that. I now have curly, clean feeling hair and the results last even after sleeping on my hair. I am so pleased with this, will def repurchase and would recommend it to anyone with a similar hair type to mine who has always been let down by promises of a curl enhancer and volumiser that never works.
It isn't the cheapest (in the UK) but what I'll save now my search is over means I'm better off an I can see the 200ml bottle lasting me for a good few months. Thank you John Masters I'm a happy curly girl again.
