I've used several beach wave sprays but this is my first mousse. Mousse is the way to go! My hair is very straight but this product gives me curls. Bonus is smells great!
This product is literally what I have been looking for, since I can remember. I have fine, wavy hair, that gets oily quickly, but also frizzes. This gives be the perfect bedhead texture, while still maintaining a certain polish. Not to mention it gives me the grit that holds style, and banishes the horrid squeaky clean texture that makes my hair slip and just genuinely look blah.
I have coarse but thin hair (Asian textured hair), and my hair isn't stick straight but it's not super wavy either. Sort of a half wavy. This product does a pretty decent job of creating waves and texturizing, but I don't get the desired effect without using a curling rod for some parts of my hair.
You also have to be careful about how much mousse you use. If you have super long hair, 1 golf-ball size dollop per side of your hair. If you have medium-long (below the collar bone), a ping-pong ball size per side is just fine. If you use too much, your hair will get crunchy. And you definitely have to use this while your hair is wet — it just gets crunchy (and doesn't really work) if you try it on dry hair.
I'm pretty picky about my scents, but I love the smell of this.
Overall, good for people with some wave or texture to your hair who want to get even more waves/beachy texture. I can't imagine it'll work well for people with completely straight hair or relax someone's super curly hair.
I'm not a huge fan of mousse-type products but I love this. It gives great shine and texture just like advertised. I have think, short hair and this hasn't weighed it down as others in the past have.
Summer Here I Come!
Creates wonderful tousled waves! I think I still like the dry texturizing apres-beach spray better for my fine hair, but I think I am still mastering this product. Overall, this product creates great natural waves. I just wish it created a bit more volume.
Great for curls too
I'm constantly trying new products for my thick, fine, curly hair ... always looking for something that will keep it shiny and frizz-free without weighing down. I was surprised when my stylist recommended the Oribe Surfcomber mouse. I love other Oribe texture sprays but found "beach sprays" to be way too drying. Not the case with this! The mousse goes a long way, keeps my hair shiny while adding texture and defining curls. Definitely worth the price because it replaces a 2-3 product routine for me.
