Happy New Year!! I hope everyone has a very happy and safe new year!
This is a product I have had for a few months now and I've been waiting for the right time to review it. Finally, I have a chance to.
Not your mother's is a great brand with a very wide range of products. All of their products are very cheap and affordable but great quality. You can buy their products at a drugstore for about $5. Ulta also carries them. I love the names of their products, they are all very clever. I found them while browsing the internet for hair products one day.
I had been looking at Beach Babe for a while until I was finally able to buy it at my local Wal Mart. I had been looking for something to transform my normally straight hair into nice waves. Now what is Beach Babe? It is a texturizing spray meant to give you beach waves. The description from Not Your Mother's on the bottle claims:
Not everyday can be a day at the beach...minus the sunburn. Beach Babe has everyone fooled into thinking you just left the beach (you little liar!). It adds sexy, tousled waves and a lite matte finish to any hair type. Infused with natural dead sea salt & sea kelp this salon formula has you and your hair on the boardwalk all year long.
Beach Babe comes in this little plastic bottle with a trigger handle. I really like this, it's very easy to control how much product you want to use. There is also a really good amount of product in this bottle. I love the packaging of the bottle, it's feminine and very cute.
There is a little tab that you can tap to open or close this. I would still be careful when traveling with it though, in case that tab moves. You don't want hair product to leak all over inside of your bag!
This is a very easy product to use. Just spray it liberally all over your hair, where ever you want beach waves. After spraying it on, I just bunch up all of my hair and clip it into place with a claw clip then let it air dry. That isn't the only way to do it, that's just what I like to do. You can also just scrunch your hair with your fingers. Instead of letting it air dry you can also blow dry it.
Yes, this product does work! After my hair has dried, I release it from the clip and I always have beautiful, tousled beach waves. It is such a great product if you want to style your hair and you don't have the time to use a curling iron or a straightener. The application directions on the bottle claim you can use this on wet or dry hair. I have used it on both, I find that it works better on dry hair. The only problem I have with this product is for my hair, the waves don't last. My hair doesn't hold a curl well unless I use a good amount of mousse and hairspray. I'm sure it holds perfectly well with anyone else's hair, mine just likes to be difficult.
I also have to mention the smell! It has such a great tropical smell. There have been times where I've used this product just because I wanted to smell it!
If you've been thinking of trying this or any other Not Your Mother's products, just do it. Their products are great, and if you don't like it you are only losing about $5.
