Most Helpful Positive Review FINALLY!!
I have natural "beach waves" - but I have NEVER been able to find a product to make them not frizzy and defined... until NOW!!! This spray smells AMAZING and my hair looks/feels amazing! I got so many compliments the first day I used it! I'm recommending it to all my girls.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not great
I got this product thinking it would give me beachy waves. I sprayed it in and instantly hated the smell. It smells like sunscreen (I guess it kind of smells like summer, but in a gross way) and nothing like bananas. I began sprunching and twisting my hair and my hair turned into one giant matted nest, it was even damp! I took my brush and detangler to it just to get it to be managable enough to wash it again. And then it didn't want to come out of my hair.
I decided to try it again, and decided to brush my hair everytime I sprayed it in.. I did get some waves, but my hair was matted as soon as I took the brush away. I will not purchase this product again. I imagine if you have thinner hair it would be great, but definitely does not work with thick, waist length hair. It also dried the ends of my hair out something terrible.

I received a sample bottle of Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Soft Waves Sea Salt Spray for free from TryItSampling, and I like it! The bottle is a good size, and will last a long time. The sprayer sprays a fine mist, and is easy to use. The product smells like tanning lotion, a little coconut like, even though it is tropical banana scented. I like the scent. The spray is not oily, and easily washes off my hands. My hair feels nice when I use it. It does not make my hair feel crunchy or oily. It makes my hair feel soft. I think it helps keep my waves. Overall, I definitely recommend.
My hair looks great!

I am so in love with this stuff. I like to use it when my hair is wet. You can use it on dry hair if that's your preference. I spray it abundantly then work it in styling my hair with my fingers. I let it my hair dry naturally. My hair looks very nice. With my hair being on the dry side, the sea salt spray hydrates and moisturizes my hair. My hair feels so smooth and soft. My favorite feature is that it has aloe extract that helps with my dryness, and the sea salt gives my hair body. The scent of the tropical banana makes me think of being on the beach. It smells so good. I would recommend to all my girlfriends and family.

I love how it makes my hair alot more curly. I love that it doesn't make my hair crunchy which is nice. I also like that it smells.ncie and doesn't stink. I like that it is a a spray and not a gel which is nice.
Kyndra from Michigan
All in all the product does what it is intended to do. It gives my hair a nice wave and it has a very nice smell to it. It is very easy to apply but If you plan on using your hands to scrunch your hair after applying this spray you will find that it leaves your hands pretty sticky. The price point is nice too. It doesnt break the budget.
Beautiful beachy waves

I love this product so much! As a woman with fine, super straight hair it's difficult to style my hair to retain any texture. Normally it falls flat, but not with this product. Spray it on when hair is damp and scrunch-that's all! It stays all day ans you can even re-apply without it being crunchy or unmanageable. It also smells like a dream!! Give this a try if you want tousled, gorgeous beach waves.
It didn't work for me
Tiff67 from Phoenix,AZ
I should start by saying my hair is super long, and most products don't work for me but I had hope in this product. The smell was strong, it is supposed to be banana but smells more like coconut to me. My hair was not soft or wavy, instead it was as if I sprayed a bunch of hair spray and was crunchy. Also, I had no waves in my hair and it took a while to wash out the crunch.

Great for adding definition and refreshing waves and curls. I even use it on my grandsons thick wavy hair to tame it before he goes to school 😉

I got this spray a few weeks ago and I've used it a few times already. It works pretty well for what I've got going on anyways! It smells pretty good and it doesnt make your hair crunchy or anything .
eknielsen from Austin, TX
This product isn't bad styling-wise, but the coconut scent is incredibly strong. I found it really overwhelming and it clashed with the other scents I like to wear. I wouldn't use this for everyday use for sure, definitely something I'm only likely to use on a beach vacation.
Huskergala from Omaha, Nebraska
I received this spray via the mail and it arrived super quick. The presentation was amazing too! The product came in a nice box with little zig zag filler paper shreds and a Not Your Mother's lapel pin.
The spray itself is awesome as well. I have naturally wavy hair that's normally just frizzy when it air dries. I used the spray as directed on the bottle and scrunched my hair. I let it air dry and it enhanced my curly/wavy hair! The product doesn't weigh my hair down at all or make it crunchy either which are both huge deal makers. The only negative comment I have is the scent. I'm not too crazy about the tropical banana smell.
Whit92 from Virginia
I like this spray because it smells great and does it job by making your hair wavy. It does make your hands sticky when scrunching your hair with the product. Other then that it is pretty good spray to use for wavy hair.
Amyb123 from Tucson, AZ
I love Not Your Mothers products so much. I tried the Beach Waves in tropical banana and I can't rave about the smell enough! It's like a coconut and a banana had a baby and then it was sacrificed for this product.
The beachy waves this product gave my ridiculously long hair was also impressive. I've struggled with getting waves in my hair from other products. For this I had my hair damp from the shower, sprayed it in, and put my hair in a messy bun. Once my hair was dry, I had perfect beach hair!
Love love love!
My absolute favorite

This spray is the best spray! Goes great with styled hair and also when I'm too lazy to do my hair. Easy to apply and does wonders. Gives your hair that perfect beach wave look
Great for hard to manage hair
Mommyham13 from Mexico, Mo.
This is my favorite beach spray of all time. I tend to have greasy roots, and thick slightly wavy hair, and this works so well in it. That perfect beach look. I'm obsessed with this brand. And its not very expensive so its fits my budget perfectly.

Marie1990 from Memphis tennessee
I have super straight hair if i curl it falls out no matter what i have ever tried to give my hair some volume hasnt worked for me. But this beach wave spray has done the job it smells amazing leaves hair deeling soft and adds just enough volume to make my hair look fuller and healthier.

i didn't like the smell, and it didn't do anything for my 2a/2b waves. but it did make my hair pretty soft. still, i wouldn't buy it again
Jarisel from New York
This spray is amazing! Perfect for the perfect beach waves! After being at the beach/pool spray this onto your Roots and you will have amazing beach looking hair!
Better than mousse
BillieDenice from Spokane, WA
Smells great, love the tropical scent. It works best, for me, on damp hair. Just spray and crunch.
So easy to use!
Ebditullio from Cincinnati, OH
I love how easy to use this is! I a beginner hair product user (I usually just straighten my hair), but wanted to try something new that wouldn't so too complicated + this is PERFECT
Love this stuff
Blake from Dallas,Texas
I have wavy 2b 2c hair and as long as I've been doing my hair natural, I've always used this. This works really well on its own with out other products to give you a nice beachy look
I love it!
Anonymous from Iowa
It's so easy! I just spritz onto my wet hair and scrunch with my fingers and have perfect beach waves.
it doesn't work well
sarah the bear from somers ny
i spray it in my hair but when i brush it the next morning nothing happened
one of my staples
Katelyn from michigan
I've been using this sea salt spray for years and I love it! My hair is fine and straight. When I want waves the next day, I spray this all over straight out of the shower in the evening then I twist my hair into two side braids. When I wake up in the morning I give the braids another quick spray and then let them loose. I love the wavy texture I get, not to mention the yummy tropical banana scent!
