Most Helpful Positive Review Love this for beachy waves
I have somewhat wavy hair and I'm a fan of the beach waves look. I don't enjoy the process of curling my hair tho. How wet this spray has changed my daily hairstyle. I love how it smells and it gives my hair a light texture but defines my loose waves really well. I love it and needed the smaller size for traveling because I can't live without this spray.
Most Helpful Critical Review Unsure how I feel about it
Because I like to sleep in, I am constantly on the look-out for items that make my morning beauty routine fast and simple. I bought the travel sized version of Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturing Spray because my hair has been growing out and I wanted to try new products without committing to a whole bottle. (For reference, my hair is fine, wavy, and usually color treated.) The product is insanely simple to use - just point, spray, and scrunch - but I find it doesn't really create beachy texture for me. If I use too much of the product, it leaves my hair sticky and very hard to style; if I use only a few sprays, the waves are gone by the end of the day. (I live in AZ with a very hot, dry climate.) The smell is glorious - like coconuts! But even that fades away after a few hours. This is an "okay" product, nothing fantastic.

It does add a matte finish & has a pleasant smell. It did nothing to existing waves or to add new ones. I won't be buying again.
Spilled all over

this was spilled and ruined my other 2 products.
Not for curly girls

I'm not even sure how this product would work for me. I got it as a free gift. I used it once and my hair hated it. IT left my hair dry and frizzy. I am sure it would work better for someone with straight hair that wants some texture. If you have textured hair like me, then this is a no go for your curls.
I like this product overall
Emely from NY
I've used this product on one of my previous vacation, I liked it made my hair dry nice and not oily or nothing. But recently I've got it in my latest order as a FREE "gift". Received it today and when I opened everything little did I know that this product was half empty, I was like WHATTT. Compared to the one that I've used before and my old bottle somehow ended up having more product than this did.
Love it. Great price and works as well as others.

Great quality, smells great, great price.

I'd read reviews on other texturizing products. But I hate to invest in a full-size product without having tried it. So when I found this travel-size Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, I decided to give it a try. It really does add nice texture and body to my fine, straight hair.
Great product and great price

I love this for my curly hair but I wish it didn't make it look dirty
LM from Arkansas
I bought this product to give my flat, straight as a board hair some life when I curl it. However, it mostly just makes my hair feel dirty and greasy. It did give my hair some texture which is what it is made for, but I didn't notice much difference in my hair when I curled without it vs. with it. It may work better on hair that is already wavy rather than straight hair.
Works great for thin hair
Lisa from Averill Park, NY
I also use Plump For Joy with this. Kind of layer it. Not sure if that is the right way, but it works for me.
Came to work today with straight hair, added these products in my work cubby, and wha-la! Curls!

At first this was great. Used on dry hair (like it says for an option on the back), to create a more beach wave look. However, lately it has become more sticky and hard to come my fingers through and is creating tangles instead of getting rid of the frizz. Going to keep using and try the damp hair option so we'll see
I really liked this product.

I sprayed it all over my hair when it was still kind of wet and air dryed.

I have blonde hair with no body to it. This gives texture to my hair, and has a sweet summery smell.
Kat from Orlando, Fl
I have the straightest hair ever. Grabbed this on a whim in the checkout line and I'm so glad I did! I actually gives my hair some wave. I put it in damp hair then add some Big Sexy hairspray and the wave stays all day. First time in my life I've had waves! I can't even keep curls with tons of hairspray for more than an hour. Loving it!!!

I used the product to give my hair a beachy look. It made my hair look oily.
PAK from Cranston
I use this to help keep my beach waves in conjunction with Ouidad Curl Cream. Not sticky; very light.
Didn't do much
AnnaBanana from Vernon Hills ULTA
Didn't do much to my hair but my hair felt softer and it smells really good
Glad I went with the smaller bottle
Amber from Indiana
This did not work on wet or dry hair.
I would NOT buy this again
agentelle from West Hills, CA
I read the instructions. Used per instructions. This did not work for me AT ALL. Glad I bought a travel size. This is the second "Not Your Mother's/Beach Babe" product I have purchased that did not work, so that's it for this brand. From now on it truly is "not her Mother's" anymore.
Definitely for people with fine wavy hair.
Sarah N from Michigan
I bought the travel size just as an add on to get free shipping. 😂 I've used texturizing sprays by other companies before but this one gives me the results I was looking for. I spray it on my wet hair before drying and then again when it's dry to give me the texture i desire. I really like what it does for my hair on day two (or three). I can get that tussled beachy look quickly without having to spend time taking it.
If youre on the fence, buy the travel size
Jacqueline from Allentown, PA
My hair dries straight with heat, wavy with air. I've been wanting to try this forever, and I bought the travel size. Personally, I don't feel like it does much. If I use a lot it makes my hair very sticky and hard to style - I've found that I get the best results spraying generously - not excessively - a good distance away from my hair. Helps control waves while creating a natural look, and adds a great smell. I likely will not be repurchasing, but it was great to finally try.

This is very lightweight and does not leave a funky coating on your hair.
❤️ NYM Beach Babe Spray!

Love this product! Perfect for vacation ❤️
I repurchase this often
Cammy from CT
I really enjoy this product in the trial size over the fill size bottle. The full size bottle has a thicker consistency that leaves my hair sticky and hard.. not too sure why. I really enjoy this product for some easy beach waves. I spray some in and scrunch after the shower then usually pull my hair into a bun on the drive to work to let it finish. Easy use. Love it.
