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.

Better for naturally wavy hair

I can see how this spray would make naturally wavy hair look amazing - sadly it didn't do much for my straight hair. Would like to try again and follow up with a waving or curling tool to see if it would increase the hold and give me longer-lasting body.

I loved it

Didnt make my hair crunchy or sticky- simply made my hair beachy! I cant wait to order the larger size because I was terrified of running out with the sample size
(which was a great size)

I love everything about this product
Purchased

perhaps a little spendy, but the product is wonderful and it comes in a beautiful glass bottle to boot. I use this on days I've just washed my hair or need a little light texture.

Okayy...

This is my first salt spray, so I am afraid I have no reference aside from natural beach waves I love. This spray doesn't give me those waves per se, but it def gives the wave/curl a nicer texture than just letting my hair air dry after showering, which results in a frizzball (not curly, nor straight). I must say I do NOT like the smell at all. Will probably try something different after this.

not too heavy

I have previously used bumble and bumble's sea spray and this stuff is slightly better. It isn't too heavy and does what it is supposed to do!

Salty Hair Spray

I'm not sold on these salt sprays, so I may have a slight bias. That said, I like this better than I thought I would.

Nothing does what ocean water does. Nothing does what even pool water or sitting in a bath tub does! When you come out of water, your hair does things, the water drips off of it in a way that cannot be described, and bottles and sprays simply cannot capture. Mermaid Mane does smell nice.

Gave only a little texture

This worked a little but didn't give me the desired beachy look. But I have very thick hair, so maybe that's the problem.

Shmeh.
Purchased

Bought this, sight unseen, because I am a sucker for both all things salt spray and the BEAUTIFUL packing on this stuff. I'm sad to say this, but I should have trusted the other reviewers. This stuff is pretty non descript. Also, for me, the smell was a little stuffy and hospital-ish. At least the bottle will look charming on my dresser!

not for me

I can not fathom a need for a product like this for my life style or my hair type.

I thought it did a great job for my hair! I have very fine hair and it gave it the beachy look with out the crunchy hair.
