Just spritz it through dry or damp hair, work it in, and enjoy the extra volume and movement that’ll have all the ladies (and fellas) going “wow, that guy’s got some serious locks on him!”.
Ahead, we’ve curated our favourite salt sprays, with plenty of options that are ideal for any hair length:

Murdock London Sea Salt Spray 150ml, RM133
This cruelty-free texturising sea salt spray adds texture and volume to any hair type, allowing you to shape your hair as you please. It can be used on wet or dry hair and is an especially great option for day-old hair, thanks to its matte finish. It also smells delightfully refreshing; infused with citrus, coriander, and clary oils along with other fragrance extracts, it’s your newest styling essential.
Triumph & Disaster Karekare Tonic Salt Spray 150ml, RM110.50
If you’re after a more weightless option, this texturising spray is for you. Infused with natural salts to define curls and essential root extracts like sea beet to enhance volume and shine, the spray adds long-lasting texture to your hair. Further, the spray is blended with willow herb to stave away dullness for the ultimate surfer vibes.
Herbivore Sea Mist Texturising Salt Spray / Coconut 240ml, RM90
If you’re looking for an olfactory experience with your hair care routine, this is the spray for you. It almost smells like a piña colada, only this cocktail is here to give your hair texture and body rather than to get you tipsy. Plus, don’t worry about feeling dry—this salt spray contains aloe for lightweight hydration, so you don’t have to worry about the crunch. Just watch out around your roots: this isn’t a mattifying spray!
Percy & Reed Beyond the Beach Texture Spray 50ml, RM94
It’s lightweight, long-lasting, and volumising—what else could you want from a salt spray? Conditioning vitamin B5 helps to offset the drying nature of the texturising Cornish sea salt in this formula, so you can enjoy tousled waves without the dreaded salt crunch. Simply scrunch into wet hair and either blow or air dry, or spritz into dry hair when you need an extra zhush.
Aveda Texture Tonic 125ml, RM132
This texturising spray by Aveda is a little different to the rest—while it uses Epsom salts to add grip and texture, the key ingredient here is actually cane sugar. Cane sugar works to enhance the hair’s natural texture while hydrating and softening as it goes. The result? Non-crunchy, tousled hair that feels as good as it looks. Just don’t go overboard—a little goes a long way with this one!
Virtue Labs Texturising Spray 140g, RM188.50
Treat your hair while you texturise—as with all products in the Virtue Labs line, this texturising spray contains the Alpha Keratin 60ku protein to help reduce the appearance of split ends and breakage. Further, unlike most texturising sprays, it manages to add body and movement to your hair without the help of salt. Overall, it’s a lightweight and airy formula that boosts flat roots and adds a burst of life into dull strands.
We Are Paradoxx Volume Texturising Salt Spray 100ml, RM117
The Irish brand channels its roots with this Celtic Salt-infused styling mist. The texturising spray is formulated with potent extracts such as Irish whiskey, white nettle and honey locust, which work together to enhance shine, volume, and strength within the hair’s strands. Simply spritz over dry hair and scrunch evenly for excellent texture.
