I am liking the brand ‘Not Your Mother’s‘ a lot. They’re fun, edgy, and promise to make me a beach babe (quite the challenge) with their sea salt texturizing spray. Sign me up. This little number is infused with dead sea salt & sea kelp, to give you waves that will make everyone think you’ve just left the beach, without even having to dip a toe in the ocean. Score.
When I think beach babe, two images come to mind. 1. Gisele in a bikini 2. Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush the movie. I am the furthest thing from these gals’ when I go to the beach, and if I wear my hair down it’s a Simba from the Lion King situation going on. Basically, I need all the help I can get when it comes to creating ‘beachy’ waves, minus the giant mop head frizz.
The Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray is designed to be spritzed into damp or dry hair, combed through evenly, and styled with your fingers to create waves. You can then let your hair dry naturally, lightly blow dry, or use a diffuser. If you’re hair is anything like mine; crazily temperamental with the urge to resemble a stick of candy floss, you’ll need a little more styling than this. I’m currently working on a full on photo tutorial to show you just how to do it!
In a nutshell though, if you have frizzy hair, I would:
- Wait until your hair is pretty much dry
- Apply an anti- frizz product
- Spritz on the sea salt
- Twist sections of hair with your fingers
- Curl random sections using tongs, or a hot wand styler
- Run fingers through hair to separate
- Apply more anti-frizz if needed
If you’re a lucky ducky and your hair is more manageable, keep that to yourself. Just kidding! Spritz on and go my friends. No need for the beach, sunblock, or sand:) This product smells incredible, coco-nutty, fresh, literally like a holiday in a bottle! Who needs to get on a plane!
