The 25 Best Sea Salt Sprays for the Beachy Hair of Your Dreams
Marie Claire recommends their favorite fake-it-‘til-you-make-it products. “Those perfectly tousled, piece-y, just-napped-on-a-beach waves? Yeah, those don't just happen. Blake Lively didn't just come out of the womb with gorgeously textured waves, and Chrissy Teigen doesn't emerge from bed each morning with gently mussed "tendrils." No, the secret to getting the ultimate "what, this ol' thing?" beachy waves is to use the actual beach on your hair—via sea salt sprays. As a sugary alternative to salt, Marie Claire recommends SeaSugar Salt-Free Beach Spray. The idea is that a gentle blend of sugars and polymers absorb excess oil—meaning you get that scrunchy, textured finish—but without the overly drying, crunchy hangover some salt sprays leave behind.
5 Hair Colors That Don’t Do Thin Hair Any Favors
Thin hair? This is for you. Who What Wear interviewed hair experts for insights on 5 Hair Colors That Don’t Do Thin Hair Any Favors. It seems like no matter our given hair, most of us spend way too much of our time wishing for something else. According to Erica Conan, ColorProof director of education, this is especially true when it comes to picking the best hair colors for thin hair. While those with thin hair have been convinced for years that ultra-light colors are the only ones that work for this hair type, this veteran stylist disagrees. "Color preservation is key to maintaining a healthy, thicker look to your hair," Conan explains. "As the right methods are used, hues from every color family can be considered for thin hair. Conan says there are styling tricks you can use to mask the grow-out between color services, such as adding volume at the root with a texturizing powder like ColorProof’s PowderFix Instant Volume Texture Powder Spray and hair parts that are more zigzag than straight. She says these tips alone do wonders for hiding root grow-out, thus helping hair look fuller.

The Best Hypoallergenic Shampoos
For sensitive scalps, Bustle gives their recommendation for the very Best Hypoallergenic Shampoos. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Kristin M. Baird tells Bustle, “The label ‘hypoallergenic’ on beauty or skin care products simply means the product claims to contain fewer allergy-producing substances, known as allergens, than other products. This does not necessarily mean it is allergy-proof or gentler for your skin,” Dr. Baird says. Instead, she suggests people with scalp sensitivities choose dermatologist-recommended products formulated specifically for their hair type, and look for formulas that don’t contain fragrances, parabens, or dyes. “By avoiding these ingredients, people with sensitive skin may experience less allergic reactions such as dryness, itchiness, and inflammation,” she says.
The best for color-treated hair, Bustle recommends ColorProof SuperSheer to keep your hair color looking vibrant in between salon visits, thanks to its unique blend of ingredients. The hydrating formula is made with blue lotus flower, shea butter, and jojoba for moisture and shine, while antioxidants like baobab fruit and edelweiss help keep your hair protected, shiny, and strong. As for what it doesn’t contain? Sulfates, salts, silicones, parabens, and fragrance.
