I've said for years that I wish there was a way to take home beach hair, and my wishes were finally answered. This is truly the next best thing (cause, let's face it, nothing really beats beach hair while at the beach... Especially with a margarita in hand!)... I first found this while scanning the hair care aisle of Walgreens for a dry shampoo. I had never heard of NYM's brand, but the labeling caught my eye, and then I say this sea salt texturizing spray directly next to it and may have actually squealed out loud in the store. I was a little skeptical, but for $5, why not?
After my next shampoo, I gave it a shot. I sprayed it through my hair, combed through with a wide-tooth comb, tousled my hair with a dry towel to soak up excess moisture and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then I blowdryed with a diffuser until mostly dry (just slightly damp). I didn't use a brush, just tousled with my hands the entire time. I set my hair in place with my fingers, used a little hairspray to set it, and then used a tiny dollop of anti-frizz serum, and voila! loose beach waves!
This is a great texture spray, just use it for its intended purpose.
I see a lot of complaints that the texture spray leaves the user with greasy hair. That's because I would never ever ever recommend using it on dry hair like the label suggests you can. If you're thinking about it... don't. The best way to use this spray is to spray it somewhat liberally on damp hair. Run your fingers through your hair and then let it dry naturally for a few minutes. Once your hair is no longer sopping wet, dry it on low with a hair dryer. I tend to blast my hair with the cooling ionizer setting once to twice during the process.
If that sounds time consuming, it is, but the results are worth it. If you have less time you can go directly from spraying the product to drying your hair with a medium or high heat. You'll still get results, but the texture won't be quite as noticeable as it would be if you take the long way around.
First of all, it smells amazing! I immediately decided that even if it did not do what it promised, I could at least spray it on my hair for a great scent. It does take a couple of minutes for this product to dry. I used it on my freshly washed, damp/towel dried hair. While it was drying, I used my fingers to comb it through my hair, scrunch up pieces, and set strands. You can pretty much tell how much of this you need to use. The nozzle does spray quite a bit at a time, so work it in your hair while you spray to get the correct amount.
Once it dried, I was so happy! I really DID have my beach hair! My hair looked and felt thicker. I had waves and twisty, loose, curls. I wore my hair with nothing else in it the rest of that day. The next day, I "refreshed" my hair with another round of this product and it was the same result. I am so happy with this!
As other reviewers pointed out, this is a texturizing spray. If your hair is thick or tends to frizz at the beach, you don't need this. It will probably create the same effect. This isn't hairspray or a curl enhancer. Texturizing spray only. And, for that, it is phenomenal.
I did order this from Amazon, although other reviewers claimed to get it at a fraction of the cost at some bigger chain stores. I checked in store and online and my local store doesn't carry it. By the time I ordered it and paid for shipping, it was cheaper to buy from Amazon. What I'm saying is that whether you pay $11 or $5 for it, THIS STUFF IS WORTH IT!
