11 Hair Mists Inspired By Summer For The Perfect Seasonal 'Do — PHOTOS
Since getting a taste of that midsummer weather on the East coast, I've been daydreaming endlessly about the warmer months approaching. One of the things I always look forward to is summer beauty trends. That's why hair mists inspired by summertime, like sea salt sprays, are my absolute favorite thing in the world. Besides their texturizing and softening properties, the summery smells they give off evoke all kinds of fond memories. There's just nothing that can uplift my mood more than the smell of sea salt, coconuts, and citrus fruits.
All the scents that we associate with summer are ideal to surround ourselves with on the daily. That's why I love using my summery hair mists all year round. My favorite product, LUSH's Sea Spray Hair Mist, refreshes and gives life to my locks between washes. But its quaint sea salt and citrus notes are even more powerful than the beauty-based benefits (at least in my opinion). It takes me back to sun-drenched pavements, to tall glasses of ice cold lemonade, and to the soothing sound of ocean waves rising and falling on the exfoliating sand.
For all you hardcore lovers of summer, for those who want to transition their beauty routines toward more season-inspired products, and for those who simply want an extra dose of sweet-scented volume and shine, here are some of the most deliciously-scented hair mists on the market right now.
