This spray is simply AMAZING!To start off, I was in a long search for something to even come close to how the now Sunsilk waves of envy salt spray.The sunsilk spray was discontinued few years ago so I was sad I couldnt find anything nice and lightweight to put on my thin straight long hair.I bought this and it works amazingly just as well as the spray.I found it was a couple dollars cheaper at [@] so check there first if your a super saver like myself.I tried this spray on dry hair,damp hair and ive come to the conclusion that I prefer it on damp almost completely dry hair.Too wet and it feels limp and too dry of hair it weighs it down.IF you have my hair type youll love this product cause it does give that beachy effect.I also come to figure that it looks really cute on hair that I curled with a curling iron. I just run my fingers through the curls to losen them (i dont like the too much effort into my hair look) and then sprayed this around my hair a few time.It define those curls and made them really natural looking.A little of this spray goes a LONG way.If you have thicker hair or dryer hair i DO NOT recommend this for you simply because the salt in the spray will dry your hair out.Thicker hair needs creamy textured products.herbel esences makes a curl defining cream

I recieved this as a gift from my mother who had used this product herself and was moderately pleased with it.

I'd like to start off by saying the smell of this product is amazing. It's coconuty. It's beachy. It smells like it should belong in a Carribean cruise commercial.

When I used this on my damp, straight hair, I managed to get a decent amount of beachy waves after much scrunching. As my hair dried, it became terribly stiff. I (stupidly) tried to brush it out, which was a painful experience that left my hair looking seriously frizzy. As I do with most products I have a bad first encounter with, I tried using this again with less spritzes just in case I had over-estimated and put too much in the first round. Once again, I had stiff, crunchy, unmanagable hair.

After much thought and consideration, it was obvious why this product made my hair so bad. It was the salt. Anyone who knows a bit about science or cooking would know that salt pulls out moisture; healthy, beautiful hair NEEDS moisture. In otherwords, this spray was murdering my hair.

This product is going straight into the trashbin. Too bad, this really does smell terrific and is a very reasonable cost.

    Comments about Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, 8 fl oz:

    I have naturally wavy hair, so this product really enhances my waves. I took this on my trip to Mexico because I refused to use a blow dryer and flat iron. I needed a product that was simple and easy to use. After I showered I used a leave-in moisture conditioner then I applied the sea spray. I used a generous amount because I have a lot of hair. I air dried it. By the end of the night I had loose beachy waves.

    It didn't leave my hair sticky and it also did not dry it out. Use a good conditioner prior to using the sea salt spray. I think that is what helped my hair from drying out.

    I'm unsure how this words on straight, fine fair. It works amazing on natural wavy hair though.

    I don't know if was just the one I ordered but it smelled like play dough in my hair. I really wish it smelled like coconut like most stated. Worked well just couldn't get past the scent considering it lingers in your hair.. Sadly disappointed and gave it to a friend.

      Comments about Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, 8 fl oz:

      I'm in my 40's and my hair has started to thin in the back. Using gel or other products weigh down my hair and emphasize my thin (balding) area. I am also allergic to hair spray so it is not an option. Mother's Beach Babe has been an awesome solution. I spray it on and run my fingers through my hair to style it and then blow dry it or let it dry naturally, depending on how hurried I am. It doesn't hold as well as hair spray but if I style it, dry it and lightly spray it, it holds just fine and makes my hair look much thicker. Consider this a great side effect.

        Comments about Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, 8 fl oz:

        This is a fun product to use. It really makes your hair feel like you've been at the beach. I grew up at the beach, so I would know! I have very fine and thin hair... so using this product gives me texture, while making my hair feel more full. The smell is great too! Has a slight coconut scent, or something similar to a sunscreen smell. It's an attractive and fun scent. I have used this product with damp hair and dry hair. You will get more texture if you use with dry hair. Warning: Put a towel down on the floor before you start spraying your hair... it left my bathroom floor slippery! Overall, it's a nice and fun product I will use all summer long!

            The only other salt spray I've used is B&B Surf Spray. It's pricey though and I don't care for the fragrance.

            NYM's spray smells nice, isn't heavy, but strangely does the exact opposite for my hair. It makes my hair very smooth and shiny, does away with any fly-aways. I don't get any texture or body that I'd hoped for.

            I'll still use it, but not for what the product is intended for.

              I never take the time to leave reviews, but I had to for this product.

              My hair is very thin and pin straight, this gives it bounce and body... without even blow drying. It lasts all day and smells amazing!!

                      My hair is difficult. I had a sea salt spray in the past that worked very nicely. This one works well but not for hair that is difficult (for example my hair does not curly well) so this worked for a little while then my hair falls flat again. If you're hair is not difficult you probably will not have any problems with this product!
