Whether you're looking to tame your curls or add texture to straight hair, salt sprays are a must have for perfect holiday hair...

Summer hair can be tricky. That effortless beachy look which somehow escapes frizz but has natural body is hard to cultivate.

After many hours spent melting in front of the mirror trying to craft the perfect care-free wave with a curling wand, we decided it was time to try something new.

Sea salt sprays are the new faff-free route to textured tresses. Their ability to boost volume within minutes has made them a staple product at fashion week when catwalk ready hair is necessary and time is limited.

Top tip: For natural body spritz the ends, then scrunch your hair in your fist and hold for 10 seconds. When you release you'll be left with natural curves that hold all day.

To help you choose the salt spray that's right for your, we've picked out ten of the best. From pharmacy favourites to salon elites, we've got you and your beauty budget covered...
