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.

So far, so good

I used the Mermaid Mane Sea Salt Spray on my hair before leaving for the shore this weekend. I don't know if it was the weather (lots of rain), or if I didn't use enough (other reviews talked about how it left their hair sticky, so I was cautious), but it didn't give me quite the effect I was hoping for. The scent was okay, not unpleasant, and it left my hair feeling just fine. I think I will try it again on a warmer/sunnier day, and use a bit more, to see if it works a bit better. Overall, I was pleased with how the product left my hair with slight but tamed waves!

Not for thick hair mermaids

Although your hair smells just like the beach, if you have thick hair this spray isn't quite strong enough to really mermaidify your hair.

Smells Nice, but Ineffective.
Purchased

I was really excited to try this salt spray. I love the packaging and the name, but it just didn't do anything for my hair. I have straight hair with a bit of wave, that easily curls with an iron or when air dried in the sun. I thought this spray would be perfect for my hair type, to give me beachy looking tossle without actually needing to air dry for hours. Sadly, it didn't do that, and just made my hair look messy.

Ahhhhhhhhh . . . mazing!
Purchased

I've always been a fan of sea salt sprays in theory, but never found one that really impressed me until now. I first tried this product in the Modern Mermaid box and instantly fell in love. It smells heavenly (a light rose scent) and works extremely well. I have very fine wavy hair that I usually blow out straight. However I've been letting my waves roam free this summer thanks to this product. A few spritzes, a couple scrunches, and I'm done. It also works great to revive second day waves just as quickly (maybe even better). This product will remain a must in my routine arsenal of hair care.

Really liked

I received this in my mermaid box right before going on vacation. I loved it. I would let my hair just dry naturally and then spray this and go. Worked really well.

Smells good but ineffective

This stuff is definitely not worth over $20. It did absolutely nothing for my hair except make it wet. I do like the smell though

Magic Spray
Purchased

This stuff gives the perfect amount of grit and texture to my naturally straight hair without being sticky or crunchy. It doesn't provide instant curls, but as a finishing spray after using the curling iron it transforms curls into perfect beach waves. Others reviewers complained about the smell, but I like it. It is very herbal, but I don't find it unpleasant.

Good Sample Size

I loved that the sample sized bottle is really generous, so I could use the product a few times and see if I really liked it or not, and I have to say, it works for me. I have crazy frizzy thick hair, and a few sprays of this, and my hair seems less frizzy and more tame. I also like that the full-size bottle is well-priced and soooo cute. Now I just have to keep my friends from stealing it...

Provides good texture and body to hair, I like the smell

I received this product in my mermaid birchbox and I felt like a mermaid using it. I love the smell! It was strong at first, but smelled very much like going to the beach, more so than many products I have had. It is not a scent of "thoughts" of the sea, it really smelled "like" being at the ocean. The smell lasted through the day. You either love the scent or you don't - one coworker told me I smell like bug spray, but I still like it. The product added texture to my hair, but I don't like to wear it two days in a row, I feel like I want to wash my hair between and brushing it, no way.... I preferred this product over bumble bee sea spray. I like this, my bottle is almost empty and I plan to get another!

Fun for summer.

I don't typically like to use sea salt spray on my hair, however I really liked this one. The smell was great, the texture was good and it seemed to have worked for the purpose of textured waves.
