Hey, I'm not that out of touch. I already know beach-y textured hair becomes a trend every summer. As the proud owner of textured hair I also know taking good care of it can be really time consuming and expensive.

The $28.00 for 4 oz. of Salt Spray is fairly off-putting. Along with the price is the press. Something that, "promotes a dry, gritty texture"? That's just not the direction I want to go with my hair. But if you think you might be tempted to spring for this product here's what you're getting...

In the interest of full disclosure... Magnesium sulfate, the second ingredient in the list for Surf Spray receives a zero hazard rating from Skin Deep. The site also notes
it's an inorganic salt found in sea water and mineral deposits and has not been assessed
for safety in cosmetics. Here are some of it's synonyms:
Anhydrous Magnesium Sulfate
Magnesium Salt Sulfuric Acid
Would it be too b**chy of me to say I guess it depends on how important it is to you to look beach-y?
