Not Your Mother's Hair Care: Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

Happy Monday!!!

I know it's quite hard for us to go back to our daily routine after the weekend... and especially after Thanksgiving break. But hey, on the bright side, Christmas countdown is officially on! :D

I am super excited for Christmas, but I do miss the beach.
How fun would it be to have a beach bonfire right now?! Haha.


Another thing I love about going to the beach? Beach-y, wavy hair!

It's a hairstyle that screams a California carefree and relaxed vibe.
It's a hairstyle that is perfect for everyday -- not too formal, but still fab!

One product that will really help you achieve that effortlessly cool hairstyle is

Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray.


Now everyday can be a day at the beach... minus the sunburn. BEACH BABE has everyone fooled into thinking you just left the beach (you little liar!). It adds sexy, tousled waves and a light matte finish to any hair type. Infused with natural dead sea salt & sea kelp, this salon formula has you and your hair on the boardwalk all year long.

I love this product!
Although it's not perfect, I can honestly say that it's pretty close to it.

Lightweight. Not sticky.
It has a faint scent -- kinda like an infusion of salt and coconuts -- just like the beach!

The design of the bottle and nozzle makes it really easy to use.
It has an open/close lock -- you can be sure it won't leak.

So affordable! It's only $5.99!

I tried taking a photo of my hair when I used it... unfortunately, it was so difficult to capture the texture with my brown hair. I was very lucky that my friend came over that day, and she was happy to give Beach Babe a try.

Directions: Mist generously onto clean, damp or dry hair. Comb through evenly and style with fingers or a brush to create random texture, waves and body. Air dry naturally, use a diffuser or lightly blow–dry. Oh and don’t forget your sunblock (wink).

Here is a picture of my friend's hair pre-spray, just right after a shower:


I sprayed Beach Babe on, scrunched her hair a bit, and then used a diffuser while still scrunching (until her hair dried).

Here is her hair after:


I edited the saturation of the picture in order to show you guys the texture achieved after using Beach Babe.

She loved it! She described her hairstyle as "messy cool". ;)

I have to remind you guys though that it does take some work and effort to get a beach-y hairstyle. Simply spraying Beach Babe on and scrunching your hair a couple times won't really do the trick -- that's the mistake I made the first time I used my spray. I realized that it's not magic and I have to do my part, haha.

I've learned to think of ways to make my hair extra wavy -- like putting my hair up in a bun or braiding my hair after spraying Beach Babe on...
If you think of other ways, please let me know. ;)

Anyway, final verdict is this is an amazing product!
You won't regret getting Beach Babe because it works well, it won't damage your hair, and it is super affordable!

I think every girl should have one. :)
