Sugar spray is the new sea salt spray and here's what you need to know.

It’s time to throw out your sea salt spray.

According to a report by ELLE Australia, sugar spray gives you the same great texture you get with sea salt spray, but it’s not as drying. It’s a win-win, really.

So basically, you’ll achieve the same effortless, tousled waves but without the crunchiness of a sea salt spray.

This also means your hair has a lot more movement, not to mention the shine. So. Much. Shine.

Seriously, remind us why we were ever using sea salt spray?

Mamamia spoke to award-winning hairstylist Anthony Nader about the sugar spray trend, and he is very on board.

“The sugar has a far softer and conditioning effect due to the ingredients, including sugar cane extract, plankton and sea kelp which feeds your dehydrated strands to healthier days,” he told Mamamia.

“I would recommend the sugar spray for hair types that are highly coloured, and who still want the beachy texture but without the crunchy feeling that a lot of sea salt sprays tend to give.”

Although he said we probably shouldn’t throw out our sea salt spray just yet. Whoops.

“The two are totally different,” he added.

“If you’re after a hair texture that isn’t gritty, then give me the sugar, baby! It’s like having your cake and eating it too.”

According to Anthony, sea salt spray is still great for giving your hair extra volume though – especially if your strands tend to be on the fine or limp side.

“Just keep in mind that if you’re wanting more oomph on the roots, skip the sugar on the roots and spray the sea salt instead,” he said.

“And yes, it is so fine to combine the two products!”
