Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Salt Spray

Categories: Beauty,Haircare

I don’t know about you, but when summer humidity arrives, I have a hard time keeping my hair straight and I don’t want to use hot tools everyday. As we spend our weekends at the cottage or the beach, quick and simple hair solutions come in handy. I know it’s easy to throw my hair up on a hot summer day, but I prefer textured, beachy waves. Alas, we don’t all have an ocean at our disposal to get that effortlessly textured look, but Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Session Label Salt Spray makes it easy to achieve the desired effect at home.

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Salt Spray

I always thought that salt sprays should only be used on wet hair, but you can actually use it on dry hair to create beachy waves too. I find it easier to shape or scrunch my hair to the level of wavy that I prefer when it’s damp, but using it on dry hair creates a softer, matte finish.

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Session Label Salt Spray provides just enough manageability for that imperfectly tousled look and it actually makes my hair feel thicker and fuller too!

Stylists love using this product to create texture and grip for various styles, especially updos because it creates volume without that sticky residue that other styling products leave behind.

You can buy Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Session Label Salt Spray at various salons – find one near you using the Salon Finder online and rock those beachy waves this summer!

As a lifestyle blogger, it’s important for me to remain active on my social networks no matter where I am – from downtown Toronto all the way to the Rocky Mountains and the Calgary Stampede, the Samsung Galaxy S5 kept me connected to share the adventures with my followers.
