Salt sprays are a must have product in my regiment, although they aren’t very well known in Japan. I first picked up the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray many years ago after hearing the hype. I didn’t really like it at the time, until I realized that I liked the way my hair looked after I had been scuba diving. Since then, I’ve picked up different salt sprays each time I went to the US. The Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray is the newest one on my list!
What it does: (from the Ulta website)
Create natural, effortless, beach hair worn loose, soft and wavy. It adds body and texture to straight, fine strands or pumps up the curl in already wavy hair. Add extra definition to your wavy layers. Hydrolyzed Silk and Provitamin B5 protect your tresses while adding moisture and shine. Powerful UV Protectors absorb ultraviolet light to save your mane from harmful sun exposure, dehydration and color-fade. You’re left with manageable, touchable waves. Even the straightest hair can achieve tousled beach hair any time of year.
Price: $8.99 for 4.2 oz.
What I thought:
My first thought when I used this product was, “ooooh, the smell!” The product has a sweet coconut scent, which reminds me a lot of the beach. It brought me right back to Hawaii!
However, I didn’t really like the product. It seemed to make my hair stickier and less manageable than other salt sprays. Maybe the bottle was spraying too much product on my hair? I thought I was using a similar amount as I do for other salt sprays, but still I didn’t like how my hair felt.
Would I repurchase? No. If you are looking for a salt spray at an affordable price, I recommend the Not Your Mother’s Sea Salt Spray.
