Comments about Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Cream:

This product DOES work, but just not for every hair type. I have curly, frizzy, fine hair, but lots of it, and it takes a good amount of product to get results. On top of that, it's very thick and difficult to comb through hair, resulting in crunchy pieces here and there.
However, if you have hair that is either curly or has a strong wave, this will work for you, just make sure you wait until it dries completely.

    I have short curly hair and this stuff works perfectly. It defines my curls, making them bouncy without holding them down. And you only need a little, so a bottle lasts a long time.

      Comments about Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Cream:

      I absolutely SWEAR.BY.THIS.PRODUCT. It has replaced the DevaCurl styling cream I used to use that was $25 for only 5oz! And, unlike this product, a little did NOT go a long way so I was breezing through bottles racking up a hefty bill.

      But I digress. I wear my hair like a well defined curly afro, and my hair is very thick, so a heavier product like this one is great for me. But the good thing about this is, even if you have thinner hair, you can control the look by how much you apply. It does go a very long way so if you want beachy waves, I would put about a garbanzo bean size of this stuff in your hands and emulsify it first before applying to wet/damp hair.

      I put this on while I'm in the shower with my hair very wet. A big key for the best results and a visible difference is in application. I actually don't scrunch this in my hair, it doesn't look as defined as when I finger comb it through the ends of my hair. The curls get immediately tamed but still full and bouncy. I use about double the amount you would use for toothpaste and rub it in between my hands (very important!) so that you don't just get a big glob on your hair. It is sticky, so you have to "break it up" in your hands - at least that's what's worked for me. I usually put a leave in conditioner on first and then use this for the hold, and it's worked marvelously. I'll be using this as long as I can!!

      I love this product! I use it with the Beach Babe spray and it is amazing!! It is a little sticky at first and a little goes a long way.

      Comments about Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Cream:

      Normally I love the NYM products. For summer I thought it would b fun to have a funkier wavy look for my medium length fine hair. On the plus beach babe texturizing creme smells great, like coconut water. Its just so sticky in consistency that it is like putting glue into your wet hair. Even after it dried, my hair felt sticky all day, especially if it got wet or humid. It did give a nice texture to my natural wave, but I couldn't get past the feel:(

      Comments about Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Cream:

      I have wavy hair that sometimes curls, and this product brought out the curls that I only see in pictures. I already had beachy hair, and this just made gorgeous curls! But a little does go a long way and you have to distribute it very well.

          Comments about Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Cream:

          This product was too sticky for my hair. Unlike it's name (Beach Babe) this product is NOT laid-back-grab-and-go, you gotta work it! If you don't work it it will not spread nicely which will cause strands of hair to dry out and feel crunchy. On a good note, even if it does dry out I didn't notice product flakes. When I did have time to work it into my hair (I'm talking salon-style kinda blow-out), this product gave me lift and thickness. When I used my curling iron, I got a longer lasting curl.

          So, all in all, this goop is decent and just needs a name change, less sticky/tacky feeling. Would give 3 stars, but stickiness drops it to 2.

          BTW, my product reference on styling creams are Bumble&Bumbles Styling Creme, Living Proof Prime Style Extender

          Comments about Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Cream:

          I have thick, wavy-curly hair that has a lot of natural body and texture and this works very well. I apply it to damp, towel dried hair as instructed, then scrunch and air dry. It controls the frizz and enhances my natural waves. My mom has thin, straight hair, and after applying it to dry, curled hair, it gave her more texture and hold.

          It is a bit thick and sticky, so a little goes a long way even with my thick hair. It took a couple times of using it to get used to the texture of it, but I love it.

            this gives more hold than the spray, but is sticky at first and then dries a little harder than I'd like. once dry, you can run your fingers through it and it loosens up. lasts all day and smells amazing!
