Captain Blankenship Mermaid Mane Sea Salt Spray

Lately it seems like your Instagram feed serves as a neverending reminder of the beach vacay you’'re not on. You may be stuck in the office, but that doesn'’t mean your locks can’'t get that post-ocean dip look. This all-natural mist gives you sexy beach hair, —minus the sand in your swimsuit. Use it year-round for the perfect combination of body, natural movement, and a touch of shine, plus a lovely beachy rose scent.

gross smell
Purchased

I'm a sucker for great packaging and have been on the search for a seaspray since my old favorite was discontinued but I actually HATE the smell of this product. It smells like a chemical factory. Gross, gross, gross. I won't use it again and would love to return it if possible - if not, I'll happily empty the bottle and fill it with something else because the bottle is gorgeous!

Summer in a bottle!

This is the perfect product for the Modern Mermaid box - which I love. I also love the smell of this sea salt spray! It reminds me of summer. I'm still figuring out the best way to use it on my hair. I have very curly hair that can be difficult to tame and this spray didn't do much to my hair when it was dry, but worked much better if I wet my hair first.

Not satisfied at all. I have naturally wavy curly hair so I use sea salt sprays on the regular to enhance my curl and add volume. Personally it made my curls fall and half my hIr was frizzy straight and half kind of curly. My hair is wavier with zero product in it than with this. Also, if you have long hair the size just isnt satisfying. I used half the bottle in one application. You can get more for your money and products that work better at yourlocal drug store or beauty store.

The smell!
Purchased

I love the branding of this as much as love the product itself. SO great. The scent, the saltiness. Traveling with my lil sis and she loved it so much I just had to give it to her.

Horrible Smell

I was excited to use the spray because I love the look of beach hair. Unfortunately, the smell was so bad I had to wash my hair right away. It is way too strong for being a styling spray.

didn't need beach hair

I didn't realize this would make my hair dry and frizzy - the opposite effect I was going for. I thought it would just help my curls curl like they do at the beach but it only made them frizzy and dry. Decided to shelve this one.

Meh

I have tried so many salt sprays and continue to go back to the cheap Organix after every more expensive one I try. My hair is very straight, very fine but I have A LOT of it. I purchased this in the Mermaid Box. It didn't seem to work at all. My routine is to put it on my dry hair and scrunch my hair up in a ponytail holder or clip for about half an hour. When I did this and took the clip out my hair went back to normal like I put nothing in it. Not worth the purchase for my hair. It could work better on other types of hair though.

Captain Blankenship Merman Mane Sea Salt Spray

This didn't work for my hair. I didn't get sexy beach hair- I got nothing, no waves or curls. I didn't like the scent either.

It was a good sized sample though.

Left my hair difficult to manage
Purchased

I was so excited to receive this product but it is a little disapointing. It gives my hair the beach wave I am looking for but it leaves my hair difficult to work with.
