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.

good, not great
Purchased

I loved the idea, name, smell and packaging. I didn't think it did much to my hair to make it look "fresh from the beach". I still use it because it makes my hair soft and somewhat defines the waves.

2nd Day Hair Helper
Purchased

I have permed hair, and I typically go every other day with shampooing/conditioning. So on day 2 I always use some kind of curl activating spray. I've tried so many varieties, but this one is great because it has a subtly beachy scent and gives nice texture. Doesn't really fight frizz, though. I'll likely buy again.

Fine
Purchased

I have a lot of very fine, soft hair that appears to be thick due to having so much of it. It used to be curly, but as I get older (38) it has lost much of its curl, leaving me w/ uneven waves. This product was ok. It gave it some texture, smelled great and didn't leave my hair feeling crunchy or sticky in any way. However, it sort of enhanced the pieces of my that are wavy, but on the pieces that are on the straighter side there wasn't much effect. I'll try it on a high humidity day; I think there'd be more success then.

Great stuff!

This product adds a great light texture to hair. I have fine hair & it did not weigh it down a bit.

beach hair
Purchased

love the smell - the herbs come through. Great to perk up the roots & ends if you're skipping the wash and just blow dry a little.

This is a fun product.

Another item I probably wouldn't have bought on my own. But the sample was really fun to use. I will have to buy some soon. I have baby fine hair and it really gave my hair texture. So many products say they will give you texture, but are a waste of money. I have too many of those money-wasting things in my cupboard.

Great Concept

I love the idea of using the beach & waves to re-create that sought after beach hair, but I wasn't too convinced. My hair is naturally wavy, but I don't think it was enhanced a ton by the product. I wouldn't say I wouldn't buy it, but would need other products to work my hair into beach waves too.

I really like this!

I really like everything about this sample! It's a good size, comes in simple packaging that works well and looks like it came from someone 's home-based business. It also works great to add texture to your hair !

I want to love it!
Purchased

It isn't too bad, but it is just a sea salt spray. I wouldn't say I'm thoroughly impressed. The mermaid tail made me buy it!

Thick hair but not sticky
Purchased

I'm always looking for ways to make my hair a little fuller and more textured, but most products end up making my hair sticky and unmanageable. This product gave me a little volume and a little texture, while also (surprisingly) making my damaged and processed ends really soft! I'm buying!
