Most Helpful Positive Review Awesome product!
I love to try new things, and some days I don't feel like straightening, waving, or curling. I hate the heavy weight and crunchiness of gels and sprays, I like a more natural look. I tried this product and love it! Unlike other comments, my hair is not stick at all, or frizzy, or greasy looking. It doesn't feel like I have product in my hair a lot all and it does give me my beachy hair look that I get when I actually go to the beach. It is so cheap and works very well!
Most Helpful Critical Review Did not work
I have straight, thick Asian hair with a slight wave to it, and I am sad to say that this product did not work for me. I tried applying it on both damp and dry hair, and would scrunch my hair after applying. I did not see much of a difference, my hair looked a little bit thicker and like it had more body to it, but the change was subtle. This product smells amazing, like coconut. It did not work on my hair, but if your hair has more natural waves in it I think it would work.

I put this in my hair wet, put my hair in place then dry my hair. It gives my hair volume, i love it.
Sorry not sorry from USA
Do not buy this it ruined my hair. It makes your hair sticky and dry and so stiff not to mention the playdoh scent. It didn't do a thing DONT WASTE UR MONEY
Carrie from East Peoria, IL
I have placed several orders from ulta and have been happy with all of them - except this one. I received an empty bottle that had leaked in the box ruining eyeshadow that I ordered also. I had sent an email to the company. I was not able to salvage any of it and threw it all away. After trashing it all, I was asked to send a picture of the damage. I have never complained of damaged product before and understand that others may abuse the system, but I will not make this mistake again. I will not order from ulta again.
Finally found a travel size
Dr.GDM from North Carolina
This salt spray is my go to for keeping my curls separate and not frizzy. I was decanting into a travel spray bottle until I found this perfect size. Ulta: please order more travel-sized items.
This replaced so many products I used to use!
changed my life from Cleveland
I have a lot of very fine hair, and I always want volume so I used to tease it with hair spray after using a voluminous mouse and shampoo and conditioner and round-brush drying my hair at the roots for lift. Now!!! I just spray in my hair wet, work it through, blow dry normally and then! I spray this into my dry roots, give it a lil tease and let it air dry (about 5-10mins) and lightly brush it out, Viola! Voluminous hair that's pliable and not a hard sticky mess. Changed my life. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
I would not buy this product, wish I could get my money back
Sue from Madison, WI
I spray this in my hair and...NOTHING. No texturizing, no holding, no beach hair. Not even close.
Works great but the smell is questionable
Sha1 from Vail, AZ
I use this after my wavy hair has completely air dried. Then I apply this lightly and encourage waves with my fingers. Works great. No dryness, clumping, or stickiness -- just enhances my waves and holds them. So I have no complaints about performance. However, like many others, I don't care for the smell....which stays with me for probably 2-3 hours. Then it pretty much fades away. Not sure if I will repurchase due to the smell.
Great for styling bangs
Jenny from Chicago, IL
I use this to style my curtain bangs and I love it. It has a good amount of hold and it leaves them feeling feathery and soft. However, I do not use this on the rest of my hair. As others have mentioned it dries hair out. I have overprocessed hair and I don't like how it leaves my hair feeling. I also have very straight hair and my hair cannot hold a curl so it pretty much does nothing for me. I'm sure if you have a natural wave/curl pattern this product could do more for your hair.
Sweet T from Lufkin, TX
I have naturally wavy/curly hair that I spent years straitening, but now I have embraced the curls. One of my daughter's friends introduced me to this spray several months ago, and now I use it every day. First, I apply a volumizing curl mousse, mostly at the roots, then flip my head upside down and spray this all over to make sure I have good coverage. I then lightly scrunch my hair, end to root, then let it air dry while I apply make-up, fix munches, etc. I then use my diffuser to fluff and define. I absolutely love the results and my hair is not sticky, greasy, or stiff. I will admit, my hair feels a little dry, but I can't say it is the fault of this spray, but most likely a combination of products, styling processes, and environmental factors. Don't expect this to miraculously create curls or waves without a little work to help create them.
Love this product
Lau from NC
I am so happy I tried this product. I just love the way my hair came out with this product.
Its Okay :/
Sar from California
I have actually had this product in collection for a while. I don't ever seem to use it because it is so so drying and the smell is really not my favorite. It almost smells like there is alcohol or hydrogen peroxide in it?? I would never ever use it on wet hair, as the times I have before it has just created so much frizz! I only ever use this on like day 4-5 hair (I wash my hair only once a week) to keep up the texture and keep my waves/curls looking in tact. Overall I can't wait till I finally run out of it. I will probably never repurchase but I can't just make myself throw something away that I paid for.
Melissa from Detroit MI
First of all, it took me like 10 min just to figure out the cap piece when trying to open. The product also is just way too greasy. It just makes my hair feel heavy and greasy, didn't even texturize my hair at all. Will not buying again and will probably just throw the whole bottle away
It works well, but it stinks.
N from Missouri
I really like the way it makes my hair look, but I really do not like the way it smells. It reminds me of something, but I just can't put my finger on it. Some kind of drink I smelled as a kid, maybe? I can't decide if the smell is worth it.
Not my favorite
Luv from WA
This product isn't that great, smells a little bit like play-dough. My hair is naturally straight but when I swim in salt water it gets so curly, I wanted to recreate but instead of making my hair curly this just kind of made me look like I had bed head. Wouldn't recommend.
s from texas
it's an okay product but that's it… nothing special. if i knew it wasn't good i wouldn't have purchased it.
Great for curly hair
Crazy Curly from Chicago, IL
Always use it when I hop out of the shower. Tried some of the more expensive sea salts and I keep coming back to Beach Babe.
Definitely gives volume
Just a midwestern girl from Ohio
I love this inexpensive product and would use this any day. I happened to have Ouai texturizing spray laying around my house and used it and it didn't do anything. I then used this product to get the grit and volume and it delivered. Folks you don't have to spend a fortune on these overpriced products to get what you need. I use the spray for volume and not waves.
Claire from MA
With sea salt spray, my goal is to add volume to my roots. This spray weighed them down and made them look greasy instead. Bummer.
For reference: My hair is 2B, fine, high porosity, medium density,
Great on Dry Hair
karkar from michigan
I've used this for years and have found that it only works well when my hair is dry. I also spray it into my hand so that I can target the right areas and just scrunch it in. My hair is wavy with it being too straight some days.
Lilo96 from TN
Doesn't make my hair feel soft. However , I get the best results.
Cml5386 from Philadelphia
I have naturally wavy/curly hair and was looking for a light product that would give my hair some curls when I leave it to air dry but not be crunchy like a gel and this works great. My curls are soft when my hair dries and they hold well.
Donna from GA
I like it
Amanda from PA
did I get a different product than everyone else? I think it smells terrible but really works to help make separate curls and waves. I pair it with the chi keratin line and that helps with the smell which is the only reason it's not 5 stars in my book
Worst hair product I've ever used
Kelly from Atlanta, GA
I have hair that's a combination of curly, wavy, and straight (yes, your worst nightmare). This stayed sticky for days. Made my hair frizzy and gross. Absolutely terrible. Didn't help the straight/wavy parts be any more textured. Now that I see that you can add an image, I should've taken a picture of my hair.
Smells Great, love it!
Sara D from San Antonio
Seriously cannot stop smelling my hair when I use this product. It creates kind of a mess in finer textured hair like mine and weighs it down a little though. But you get what you pay for
