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 really like the product - just don't want to get stung by bee. The bees didn't leave me alone until I washed my hair.
Works so well!
Addy from Rockwall
I have dirty blonde, straight hair, with absolutely no shoe or volume at all. I spray this in my hair after my morning shower and scrunch my hair while blow drying and my hair looks completely different! Such good product for such good price!

This made my hair look puffy and greasy, I loved the not your mothers curl talk so I was excited, but after using it I don't recommend
J from Anchorage
Not a huge fan. My hair looked greasy after using.

I love this stuff. I used to use the "texturizing" one, but I prefer the smell and feel of this one way more. I go back and forth between this one and the sun bum sea spray. The only downside I see is that it contains silicones, but i'm not super strict about that anymore. I have never had an issue with this causing build up or anything like that. I have long naturally loose curly hair and I spray this over my curl cream and then scrunch, and its the dream team for me.
Not for me
Bea from KS
I was really excited to try this product but I wouldn't recommend it for fine/thin hair. I have fine hair that's a little wavy naturally and it becomes straight and flat when I use this product. It seems to weigh my hair down no matter how little I use. It also only works on wet hair. When I used it on dry hair, it made my hair so tangled and sticky that I could barely brush through it.
SILICONE! False labeling
D from OH
The brand specifically states ON the bottle "no silicone" yet there actually IS silicone in the ingredient list on the bottle! "Dimethicone" IS SILICONE! So frustrating you can't even trust brands own labeling on their products.
Love this stuff

This works so well for my fine hair. I use it at the end when my hair is almost dry, it works best that way.
Lexi from Texas
I love not your mothers but I can't speak to the quality of this item because it smelled so bad. I'm glad I found someone who didn't mind it; otherwise I would've thrown it in the trash.
The smell made me throw it out!
E from IL
I bought this product at another store because I liked the low price point, but after bringing it home and trying it I had to throw it out... I just couldn't handle the smell.
Use this regularly
Lisa from Beaverton, OR
I use this daily too fine my very fine curls a little more curl and volume. When styling I can add a light spritzer for extra hold without excess build-up.
Great hair product!

This leaves your hair smelling amazing, like you just left the beach! I love the beach waves it leaves on my hair!
THE ONLY SEA SALT SPRAY THAT WORKS FOR ME
Katelyn from Cleveland
I have naturally wavy hair, but when I let it dry on its own, the texture with no product is just not cure. I tried this spray out a few years ago and haven't looked back since. It gives me perfect mermaid waves in my hair that look natural. The best part of all is that is doesn't leave my hair feeling crunchy or like there is product in it at all. This will forever be my holy grail for when I choose to go with a wavy look!
Not buying again
Wendijo from Fairfield
It made absolutely no change in the texture or waves of my hair.
I love this
BloodDAnna from Washington
So many bad reviews from not using correctly. Wash hair, do your makeup, remove towel and a few light sprays on each side. scrunch upward, use a diffuser and lightly scrunch hair until it's about dry. If you just spray it on wet hair and air dry your hair is going to be clumped and crunchy and look wet. Think about how your hair looks after swimming in the ocean and air drying, it's not pretty. I actually think the banana scented works better than the plain, no idea what the ingredient difference is but I do notice a difference.
Bought travel size but will definitely go back for full size
JK from Charlotte NC
Doesn't feel sticky like a lot of "beach wave" sprays do. Smells wonderful!!
Ash from New York
I love this brand and this spray makes me look beachy all day.
YesiC from Turlock
Don't know how to feel about this product. It has a great smell but it did nothing to my hair besides making it straight (I have medium length wavy/straight hair).The bottle says to spray onto Wet hair when the description on here on how to use says to spray onto DAMP hair so i might give it another try when my hair is damp.
Smells horrible, doesn't give wave, and makes hair dry!
Jess from Neosho, Wisconsin
I was super excited about this product. Unfortunately it smells horrible (who wants a banana smelling hair product like for real?), doesn't give wave, and just made hair feel dry. Not worth the money and wouldn't recommend buying unless you wanna smell that play dough mikes with banana lady taffy... so disappointed!
it works just like advertised

i usually use the beach babe texturing sea salt spray, but it was sold-out so I tried this product.
after using it 3 or 4 times i just threw it out. my hair was so sticky when I used it that i couldn't even run my fingers through it.
prusnak4 from akron,ohio
I have super thick hair and it's super straight. it takes a lot to hold any type of wave in my hair. I tries this to see if it would work and it actually did. I followed the directions on the bottle and used it to make sure it did it correctly. My waves turned out nice. my waves held up for most of the day. It smells good and made my hair soft too.
AndyPandyCottonCandy from Austin, TX
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!
gloria386 from Antioch, TN
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.
Samie11 from Indianapolis
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.
