The Quest for Beachy Hair: Charles Worthington Front Row Rough & Tousled Salt Spray

The quest for beachy hair continues, as the sun is out today I have been reminded of my love of surfy waves and messy curls and the 'just walked out of the sea' look that is unachievable living in the Midlands!

I have loads of these salt sprays and I couldn't resist this one when it was in a half price sale set at Christmas. I've tried it a few times before so thought I'd do a review for you all.

It retails for £6.29 and you can buy it from Boots.

What They Say:

Create that tousled beach look all year round with this unique sea salt spray, specially created to add power and lift to your hair while bringing out your natural waves and curls.
This clever sea salt hair spray is also a perfect way to create a modern matte finish when you’re done styling your locks. The more you use, the better the results. So whether you want a look that makes a big splash, or just causes gentle ripples, use the power of the sea to get the results you’re looking for on damp hair - concentrating on the ends - or on dry hair to restyle. 

How I used it:

I towel dried my hair and then sprayed it liberally through the ends of my hair, I got a bit carried away and probably sprayed too much but never mind! I then blowdried my hair with the diffuser attachment on my hair dryer using a high heat and medium speed. While I was drying it I scrunched sections to help the waves form.

What I Thought:
  • It has quite a nice fresh scent
  • The spray is a fine mist which makes it easy to cover your hair 
  • The bottle is the ideal shape to fit in your hand, not too wide like some bottles can be
  • While scrunching the product in it doesn't feel sticky or like there is something in my hair
  • It gives a matte finish when your hair is dry, bordering on frizzy - I don't mind a bit of frizz though!
  • It's really volumising, my hair is huge!
  • It's given me nice waves throughout all of my hair

Overall I think it's done it's job, my hair is wavy, matte and messy and it doesn't feel like it's got loads of product in. It doesn't feel like it's got any product in actually - always a bonus! Another bonus is all the volume that it's given my hair! 

Would I Repurchase?

  1. Great post! I recently purchased the Not Your Mother's salt spray but I wasn't able to get any texture or wave in my pin-straight hair. I'm glad it worked for you though! Maybe I should try the Charles Worthington brand.


  2. @ChelseaLauren17 - Thanks for the comment lovely, I find these salt sprays really hit and miss! This one works pretty well though!
