Is Sugar Replacing Salt As The Essential ‘Beachy Waves’ Ingredient?

Joanna Fleming

Without fail, I’ve always got a salt spray on rotation. That’s my secret to creating my signature waves – I use my wand to curl my hair, then I spritz my salt spray before brushing the curls out. Voilà! Beachy, undone waves that actually stay put for days.

But it’s true that salt sprays can be drying on your hair. So what’s the alternative? Sugar, of course.


I’m Listening…

I’d like to introduce you to Pureology’s new Beach Waves Sugar Spray. Part of the latest Style + Protect range, this non-drying texturising spray makes beachy, tousled waves that much easier to create.
