It’s the one in the blue bottle with the sailboats on it (kinda looks like a Monet painting).
Basically, it’s beach wave witchery, and I loooove it. It’s a salt spray that encourages a wavy texture, and then locks that wave into place with medium-level hold. It also lifts hair for loads of volume and, here’s the kicker, leaves your strands feeling super soft.
If you know your salt sprays, then you probably also know that in order to get that roughed-up beach waves effect, most salt sprays will leave your hair feeling crunchy (*ahem*, Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray).
Yes, all that wavy texture is awesome, but the trade-off is hair that doesn’t feel great when you run your fingers through it. At least I don’t think so.
That crunchiness is an issue for me. I don’t like it when my hair feels stiff, overworked or lacquered into place. Even when I have styling product in my hair, I still want my mop to look and feel like clean, just-washed, regular ol’ hair, ya know?
Sail does the things you probably expect a styling salt spray to do — gives you waves, volume and hold — without the stiffness, and therein lies the beauty of R+Co Sail Soft Wave Spray.
I spray it on my roots and crown area when my hair is clean and dry, going layer by layer, before also spraying the ends. Then I grab a wide-barrel curling iron, and I curl random pieces for loose waves.
After the curls have cooled, I lightly scrunch everything with my fingers to coax out the waves even more. At that point, if I want some shine and a little more texture, I do a quick spray of R+Co Trophy on the top layer. But Sail usually does enough for me.
I found this video by one of the co-founders to be really helpful…
This bottle is the lurve of my hair life at the moment, and I think you’ll feel it, too, if you try it.
