    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!!

    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.

        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!

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

            I am growing my hair out from a short hair cut of many years. I didn't know what to do with my hair and a friend showed me Beach Babe and how to use it. It really helped control my growing long out of control wild wavy hair and it smells so good! I use less than my friend showed me to use because I don't like it so stiff, but it does look real good and controls my hair very well.

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

            I bought this along with the curl defining cream and the moose all by Not Your Mother's. I tried this one out first. I took a regular shower and washed my hair (shampoo and conditioner) I then put my hair in a towel for a good 5 minutes to get it damp like it said on the bottle of the product. I combed through my hair and put argon oil on my hair. When I put a pea size of product in my hands, I was turned off.I rubbed it between my hands and it was incredibly sticky. I really didn't want to put it in my hair but I went with it. I scrunched my hair up and played with it to make it look like I wanted. I went to bed and woke up with the most beautiful beachy waves. A little of this product goes A LONG way. Also I have a bob like hair,so maybe the product works best with shorter hair? I don't know. I am a minimalist and I don't do much with my hair so this makes my life so much easier. The frizz control is true. I was out all day at the Taste of Chicago in crazy humid weather and my waves were perfectly kept ^-^ I'm very happy with this product. By the way, I forgot to mention that I have wavy hair that has no control and thick hair. Hope this helps somebody!!!

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

            I use this with the BB Sea Salt Spray and it does what no other product has ever done for my slick, fine, straight hair. It gives me that "wet/scrunched" look I've only dreamt of that holds (seriously) ALL DAY! I bet it would work well by itself, but I always use the spray first on damp hair, then warm this up in my hands (helps it distribute easier) and put about 5 sm. dollops throughout my hair. You won't need as much if you don't have enough hair for 3 people's heads, like I do. I have VERY straight hair and a lot of it, so I clump up the product-filled sections or hair and clip to my head to air dry while I do my make-up and get dressed, then use a diffuser hair-dryer to finish the job if it's still wet. DO NOT put this on anything but damp, towel-dried hair. It needs that moisture to work properly. It leaves stickiness on your hands after you've applied it, but you can wash it off your hands and once dry on your hair, you won't notice any stickiness anymore. I love it and will be making that my go-to product for scrunchy/all-day styled hair. :)
