Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray

I’ve talked about surf sprays a bit before, but I think I may have found my new favorite. The Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray was a bit off an off-the-radar surprise for me, but it’s a very happy discovery for me.

First up, I like the smell of this. It’s the first thing you notice, it reminds me a bit of being backstage at fashion week — there’s a bit of excitement, a bit of high quality hair product, and a little bit of the smell of a high end salon. Sometimes hair products smell a bit blah, but this one is a great way to start the day. It’s bright, it’s invigorating, but it also dissipates so you don’t end up smelling like your hair product for the whole day.

Next up, the product itself is great. I can do my hair in the morning and I’m good for the day. No real needs for touchups or anything, which is always great for me, since I’m really not much of a primper. One night I did have to go out to meet for drinks and discuss a new business project, so I did touch up a little bit — just sprayed a little bit more on, hit it with a hair dryer, and I was good to go.

I tried this two different ways — one using a hair dryer, and one without. The hair dryer version gave me a ton of volume, and the look was a little more natural. When I go with this option my hair looks like it’s just hanging out, doing it’s thing, albeit with a ton of body and a bit of shine that wasn’t there when I got out of the shower.

When I let my hair air dry with this product, I feel like there’s a little bit more of a messy, undone quality that I’m ok with. It looks a little more rock and roll, albeit a slightly more polished version. I like this product because it doesn’t make my hair look greasy, which is something I’ve found with some other surf sprays.

I paired this with the Toni & Guy Casual Sculpting Powder for more volume, and more matte texture.
