MOVE OVER, SALT SPRAY. SUGAR SPRAY WILL GIVE YOU PERFECT BEACH HAIR WITHOUT THE GRIT.

When I first moved here from the UK, vcialis 40mg I assumed Australia was filled with bronzed beach bodies. Determined to fit in, viagra I quickly discovered salt spray as a way to at least make myself feel like a surfer babe — without, you know, the actual surfing.

I soon realised Australia is much more diverse than that – but salt spray (I love the John Frieda Beach Blonde Ocean Waves Sea-Salt Spray) has remained a staple in my haircare routine. It adds texture, creates desirable beachy waves and hides hair that definitely needs a wash.

But now there’s a new product looking to knock salt spray off its surfboard: say hello to sugar spray. To get the lowdown on the sweet (sorry!) and very new product, we quizzed award-winning international hair stylist Anthony Nader.

Have you used sugar spray before?

“I have to admit to you Glow readers that I only heard about this sweet new sensation recently and it’s definitely going to make waves… literally!” he says.

“I’m always keen to explore and experiment with any new product on the market and open minded to whatever is in a bottle to give my clients the results they are looking for.”

How is it different to salt spray?

According to Nader, the two products give very different results mostly based on how your hair “feels” and “performs” throughout the day.

“The sugar has a far softer and conditioning effect due to the ingredients, including sugar cane extract, plankton and sea kelp which feeds your dehydrated strands to healthier days,” he says.

“I would recommend the sugar spray for hair types that are highly coloured, and who still want the beachy texture but without the crunchy feeling that a lot of sea salt sprays tend to give.”

“The two are totally different. If you’re after a hair texture that isn’t gritty, then give me the sugar baby! It’s like having your cake and eating it too.”

How do you use it?

“Spray the sugar spray the same way as you would the sea salt spray,” says Nader.

I normally spray liberally onto the body of my hair, and scrunch and twist the curls until they look the way I want.

“Just keep in mind that if you’re wanting more oomph on the roots, skip the sugar on the roots and even spray the sea salt instead,” advises Nader.

“And yes, it is so fine to combine the two products!”

Keen to try? As it’s so new, there aren’t many products available here yet, but try the Tigi Bed Head Candy Fixations Sugar Shock ($18.99) and keep an eye out for stylist favourite Keratin Complex Sweet Definition Texturizing Sugar Mist to hit our shores soon.

Do you use salt spray? Would you try sugar spray?

The huge scope of products was then demonstrated in action. Using the range, Nader showed off four different looks that were both artistic and salon-friendly. Three female models and a male model were dressed in ELLERY clothing and Tony Bianco shoes.

The first look showed off a complicated and editorial Fish Braid Pony, with the model’s fair hair prepped with Fat muk Shampoo, Conditioner and Volumiser. Nader styled the loose hair with the muk Style Stick to create loose waves and finished the hair with the muk Spa Argan Oil Shine Spray.

Nader then demonstrated a day to night look, pinning a feathered fringe and curly haired style into an elegant chignon. Shampooing the hair with Blonde muk Shampoo and Conditioner, he then defined the curls with Kinky muk Curl Amplifier. The hair was curled with the muk Curl Stick and spritzed with Beach muk Sea Salt Spray for that casual vibe. Using sectioning techniques and metallic hair pins, the hair was then styled into a sophisticated up style with the greatest of ease.

The third style was a casual pony, prepped with Deep Muk Shampoo and Conditioner, as well as Beach muk Sea Salt Spray and Kinky muk Curl Amplifier to define the model’s casual waves. The products created a natural texture, with free flowing wisps of hair around the edges.
