Customer Reviews:

Great texturizing spray for beachy waves!

I absolutely love this sea salt spray! It gives my hair the perfect beachy waves and adds great texture. It's easy to use and leaves my hair looking effortlessly styled.

Leaves hair feeling dry and tangled

This sea salt spray was a disappointment for me. It made my hair feel dry and tangled, and it was difficult to comb through. It also didn't provide much texture or hold for my hair.

Perfect for adding volume to fine hair

I have fine hair and this sea salt spray works wonders for adding volume. It gives my hair a nice lift and makes it look fuller without weighing it down. I highly recommend it!

Decent sea salt spray, but not exceptional

This sea salt spray does an okay job of adding some texture to my hair. It's not the best I've tried, but it's also not the worst. It's a decent option if you're looking for a simple and affordable sea salt spray.

Caused my hair to become frizzy and crunchy

Unfortunately, this sea salt spray didn't work well for my hair. It made my hair frizzy and crunchy, and it felt like there was a lot of product buildup. I had to wash my hair more frequently when using this spray.

Provides subtle texture, but not long-lasting

This sea salt spray gives my hair a subtle texture and a little bit of volume. However, the effects don't last very long and my hair goes back to its regular state after a few hours. It's an okay option for a quick boost, but not for long-lasting style.

Product Summary:

Not Your Mother's Sea Salt Spray is formulated to offer a strong hold and enhance the style and texture of fine, hard-to-curl hair. It's effective without needing additional hairspray and avoids leaving hair feeling heavy or with product buildup. While there were initial concerns about an overpowering smell, users find that the scent dissipates quickly and is actually quite pleasant.

The spray boosts body and volume, making thin hair appear fuller. It helps create a slightly curly, natural texture without a greasy look and imparts a wavy texture with a matte finish. However, the results can vary between individuals. It's particularly suitable for fine hair that has a bit of wave or natural texture but may not be as effective for very straight or thick hair.

The lightweight formula ensures a long-lasting hold and volume, keeping waves in place for hours without stiffness or crunchiness. The product shows optimal results on second-day hair, particularly for wavy or curly types, following a wash day free of other products. Using the spray the same day as washing is also possible, but waiting for natural oils to develop can help mitigate any slight drying effect of the spray.

To achieve the best beachy waves, it's recommended to apply a minimal amount on dry hair. This approach helps avoid greasiness and maintains the desired texture and appearance.
