The Ninety-Second Secret to Managing Weather-Sensitive Hair

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked editorial director Izzy Grinspan.

Salty Dog Sea Spray, $26.95 at Evo

My hair is usually straight, but it tends to puff up and lurch off in strange directions when the climate gets too damp. For years, I dealt with this by blow-drying the hell out of it, then trying desperately not to get rained on. But then I discovered Evo's Salty Dog sea spray.

Now, instead of aiming a blast of hot air at my head every morning, I'm just schprizting with this delicious-smelling Australian stuff, making a couple curls with my fingers, and going about my day. The result is loose, piece-y "beach hair"—hair worthy of a photo shoot in Aruba, as opposed to what my hair actually does at the beach.
