There's a new beachy waves salt spray in town

I commonly get asked if I know of any sea salt sprays that don't make hair sticky and rough and I finally found one. I'm also going through a very hippie phase with my hair; I've gone no-poo and only use products with really simple ingredients. So this salt spray was right up my alley.

The ingredients consist of purified water, epsom salts, pink Himalayan salt, organic French sea salt, dendritic salt, fractionated coconut oil and fragrance. It's a mash up of salts, really. And, it works.

The name of this wave-making miracle? Olivine Love + Salt Beach Hair and Body Mist. You can buy a small bottle for $10 or the larger bottle for $24.

And because Olivine is a perfume company at heart it's only natural that this salty hair spray is easy on the nose. Julie, the founder, says on her website, "If one drop of perfume puts a smile on your face... causes you to hold your head a little higher... puts a twinkle in your eye... inspires you to put a little swing in your hips... then I have done my job."

She's done good by me.

How I use this product: One of two ways. Air dry my hair and spray this on when it's 99.9 percent dry with a couple of finishing scrunches. Or, blow dry with my round brush and spritz this on when hair is totally dry to further define the hard-earned blow-dried curls. It's a great second day hair refresher, too.

The other really great thing about Olivine is they donate five percent of their net sales to Every Mother Counts, an organization setting out to end preventable deaths that occur during pregnancy and child birth.

Final word: The product works, it has four types of salt, the packaging is really pretty, and it donates to charity. This beachy hair sea salt spray is a quadruple threat and it's the first thing I'm packing for my trip to San Diego.
