How to Use Sea Salt Spray for Men

How to Use Sea Salt Spray for Men

Maybe you’re an old-school gent who keeps it simple with a daily trim and a facial moisturizer. Then again, you could be the rugged type—more Grizzly Adams than Adam Driver; you like your beard on the slightly unkempt side. Either way, your personal facial hair philosophy is your own, cultivated since the moment that glorious first hair sprung. 

Maybe your philosophy includes a minimalist approach to beard products—which we respect. However, expanding your collection of beard-care tools to include sea salt spray may help you achieve the kind of full, healthy, controlled beard that lesser men can only dream of. And what’s more amazing than that?

Keep reading, and by the time you get to the end of this article, you’ll know everything about how to use a sea salt spray men need to know to achieve a truly incredible beard. 

What Is Sea Salt Spray?

Before we get into how easy it is to use sea salt spray on your beard hair, head hair, or anywhere else you’re sprouting fuzz, let’s talk about exactly what sea salt spray is. 

Essentially, sea salt spray is a special blend of ingredients that promote healthy hair.1 Depending on the brand, the specific ingredients will vary, but the best sea salt spray includes ingredients like:

  • Sea salt
  • Water
  • Natural oils, minerals, and other nutrients 
  • Occasional fragrances derived from essential oils

If you think that sea salt spray sounds like a concoction you could whip up at home with tap water, a salt shaker, and access to your girlfriend’s vitamin cabinet, don’t be so hasty. The best beard sea salt sprays, like The Beard Club’s forthcoming spray, are meticulously designed to achieve the best results possible. 

Why Should I Use Sea Salt Spray?

If you were to mention to the women in your life that you’ve discovered this wild new way to care for your hair called sea salt spray, they’d probably look at you like you’re crazy. Why? Because many women are already using sea salt spray to tame and tease their tresses. 

The fact is, the hair-boosting benefits of sea salt spray are no secret within the self-care community. 

What does sea salt spray do? As a styling agent, it offers a convenient shortcut for anyone who wants a beachy, effortlessly cool and casual hair look that suggests you just rolled in with the tide. It’s known to:

  • Add volume – The primary ingredient in sea salt spray—that is, salt—absorbs and dissolves the excess oils in your hair that weigh it down. This adds extra volume to hair and restores spring, buoyancy, and bounce to fine, thin hair. For your facial hair, that translates into a fuller, thicker-looking beard.
  • Improve hair texture – Sea salt spray neutralizes oils that lead to lank, lackluster hair. It also enhances your natural curls, so your hair has as many waves as the ocean itself. 
  • Improve finish – Although some products that promise to volumize, thicken, and texturize your hair can leave it looking greasy, sea salt spray has drying properties so that you look like you just came from the water, not out of it.  
  • Promote hair growth – There’s a chance that sea salt spray may even help your hair grow faster. Sea salt is rich in zinc, a nutrient your body can use to assist with cell and tissue regeneration. It also contains sulfur, which has antimicrobial properties that can help unclog pores, letting your follicles breathe.2

    How To Use Sea Salt Spray On Your Beard

    Alright guys, we know you aren’t the biggest fans of reading the instructions, but we’re going to walk you through how to use sea salt spray on your beard anyway. It’s a pretty simple process, but knowing how to go about it should give you the confidence to approach the endeavor like the alpha you are.

    Alongside your other beard accessories, adding a sea salt spray to your arsenal might be just what you need to level up your styling routine. There are a couple of ways you can use sea salt spray to make sure your whiskers wow every day. We recommend using it as: 

  • As a dry shampoo – You don’t always have the time to use a beard wash on your furry friend. Using a dry shampoo on your beard is a quick, easy, and water-free way to clean it and give it a styling boost. You can use sea salt spray as a dry beard shampoo by spritzing your beard with a small amount and gently working it through the hair with your fingers. Be sure to work the shampoo through from the ends to the roots. 
  • As a styling spray – When it comes to how to style a beard, sea salt spray may be your new favorite grab-n-go solution. Simply keep a bottle of it on hand for any time you need to plump up your beard. Just spray it on, style, and go. 
  • How to Use Sea Salt Spray On Your Hair 

    Yes, we drew you in by touting the secret benefits that sea salt spray can have when incorporated into your beard care routine. But now that you’re already planning on investing in a bottle, you might as well consider using it on your head too. 

    If you have oily, thin hair, sea salt spray can give you the lift you’re looking for, adding volume, grip, and texture. If you have thick hair, sea salt spray can tease out your hair’s natural texture and volume and give it a healthy matte shine that looks product-free—perfect for the guy who wouldn’t be caught dead with gels, goops, and other styling products in his hair. 

    Here’s how to use sea salt spray on your hair:

  • How to use sea salt spray on dry hair – You don’t need to get your hair wet to use sea salt hair spray. In fact, you don’t even need to wash it. It’s generally best to use sea salt spray with hair that’s slightly oily. This helps the spray—in particular, the salt—bind to hair strands and do their work. All you need to do is spray it on, grab the hair dryer and hit it with a little bit of cool air, style it to your liking, and you’re all set.1

  • How to use sea salt spray on wet hair – That said, you can use sea salt spray when you’re fresh out of the shower to retain that vaguely wet, beachy waves look all day. You want damp hair, not wet hair when you apply, so use a towel to moderately dry your hair so that it’s damp but not dripping. Then, spritz the sea salt spray evenly. Use a hair dryer to complete the drying process while you style.
    It’s worth noting that you don’t have to use a hair dryer to use sea salt spray—so you can go ahead and remove that one you just added to your Amazon cart.3 We recommend it because it makes the already fast application and styling process that much quicker and because it can help your style last. But feel free to skip that step.
  • Are There Any Risks To Using Sea Salt Spray?

    Sea salt spray is nontoxic, so you don’t have to worry about putting harmful chemicals on your face or head—especially if you go with a brand you can trust, like The Beard Club. That said, it’s always important to read the ingredients label before using any product, especially if your skin is sensitive or you have allergies.

    Otherwise, you should be careful using sea salt spray if your hair already tends to run dry. Just as your beard is going to draw compliments once you start hitting it with a sea salt spray, salt draws water molecules. If your hair isn’t very oily, sea salt spray can lead to dry, coarse, or scratchy hair. 

    Prepping your beard with a moisturizing beard oil or using a hydrating beard balm before applying the spray can help prevent over-drying. You can also use a facial moisturizer to keep the skin underneath your bead hydrated and supple.
