Review: Lee Stafford Salt Spray

My hair after using Lee Stafford Salt Spray on damp hair and leaving to dry overnight

In a bid to use less heat on my hair, I have been using the Lee Stafford Salt Spray to give my hair a little texture and to enhance my natural waves.

This product has the distinctive Lee Stafford smell. If you've used Lee Stafford products before, you'll know what I mean. The bottle says to spray 50 times to towel dried hair and then blow dry or leave to dry naturally or you can use it on dry hair. I personally don't like to spray that many times, as I feel it makes my hair too dry. I usually do about 15 sprays all over damp hair, trying to avoid spraying it too near the roots, and I don't do anything else to it (no scrunching, blow drying, etc). This gives me a nice amount of definition to my wavy hair and doesn't make it too dry. It also gives my hair a little texture, so it's not too silky soft and fly-away after washing. I never apply this to dry hair. I tried it a few times to see if it could revive second day hair, but I was left with my hair feeling greasy and crispy and the product just sat on top of my hair.

This has gone up in price since I bought my bottle. But at £7.49 for 150ml, it's a good product if you are trying to use less heat or like the beachy, boho waves hairstyle. I had a quick look on the Boots website, and there are some other salt sprays which are cheaper and some that are more expensive. I think this is a good middle ground salt spray, which I really like and would definitely recommend. However I wouldn't recommend this to someone that likes their hair to feel silky soft, as this really gives your hair a matte finish.

Have you ever used a salt spray before?
