Umberto Giannini Salt Spray Review

Hey Everyone!

Taking into consideration the endless hype around salt sprays and the straightness and flatness of my hair, its a wonder I didn't purchase one sooner. After a very inspiring (and enabling) #bbloggers chat at the beginning of summer, I went a little crazy (by my standards at least) for hair products. I 'borrowed' (borrowed as in its still in my drawer months later) my mum's big can of mousse and bought myself L'Oreal Elnette Hairspray, a tangle teaser and, this bad boy. Apart from my tangle teaser, I have used Umberto Giannini's Glam Hair Grunge Glamour Tousled Salt Spray (what a mouthful!) by far the most.

Firstly, the packaging is really sleek and elegant as well as sturdy and easy to use. You can't see inside though so I have no idea (except judging by weight and sound) of how much I've used or what the product actually looks like. I'd say the best thing about this is the smell. I think you'll all know how hopeless I am at describing smells but this to me is a really lasting, professional non-sweet, non-fruity hairdressersy smell. See, hopeless. 

I apply around 6 sprays all over my hair from a few inches from the roots and brush through. As for what is does to my hair: I'm not going to lie- there aren't miracles. My flat, straight hair isn't immediately transformed into voliminous beach waves. It does however make my hair a bit grungier (dry in a good way if you will)- still healthy but easier to style. It also holds in place anything I do do with my hair. I really like putting this in freshly washed hair and letting it dry naturally then putting it in a top knot over night as I actually have a bit of volume and wave (woop!). Its also really nice used when blow dried too. The only downside of this product is that it can make the ends a bit straw like so if your hair is already damaged I'd maybe steer clear.

Overall, I really like this product and the fact I'm using it almost every time I wash my hair says a lot. I will definitely repurchase.

Have you tried this? What other salt sprays do you recommend?
