I love wavy hair and have always struggled with getting my hair to hold beautiful, tousled waves. I have very long hair that is heavy, wavy and defiant. Whatever style I try to maintain, my hair always seems to put up a fight and frizz up. I've tried product after product and the only way for me to tame my hair is using a ton of mousse, conditioner, spritz, hairspray and anti-frizz serum, scrunch it up into clips, and use a hairdryer on low for about an hour. It can get to be a big pain in the butt, especially if you don't have the time for all that, and it's easy to add too much product so your hair ends up looking crunchy or oily.
So I pretty much gave up the idea of curling my hair and just go for the straight iron these days.
However, I was chosen to receive Influenster's 2013 Sweetheart Voxbox and one of the free products included was Not Your Mother's® Beach Babe™
Salt Spray. I've
never had the chance to try any of the Not Your Mother's brand of products, but
I've heard good things, so I was excited to do so! The scent and texture feels
exactly like you've been at the beach all day. Sweet and coconut-ish like
suntan lotion, yet is also long lasting, but without the chemical smell
that some hair products have. Texturizing Sea
Not Your Mother's® Beach Babe™ Texturizing Sea Salt Spray is natural, and leaves hair feeling light and soft, not crunchy like mousse or hairspray. It takes about ten seconds to apply, adds volume and helps control the frizz and define my hair into the beachy waves that I've been looking for without resorting to heat or damaging products. I will be definitely taking this with me whenever I go swimming or have intentions of getting wet since it helps keep my hair from being such an unruly, tangled mess.
I would like to add that since my hair is so long, I had to use more of this product than someone with shorter hair, and it seemed to me that using a bit too much could possibly dry your hair out, though for some that could be a plus if you have oily hair. I also preferred to use it straight out of the shower while my hair is still damp. It's easier to comb through so it covers your hair instead of just having "spots" that are wavy and others that are frizzy, and it works even better if it's braided and has had time to set. Though I can't say that this product has given me the super sexy waves of my dreams, I definitely think that it's worth giving a try and will be adding this to my hair care collection.
I highly recommend trying Not Your Mother's® Beach Babe™
