Sweetheart VoxBox: Not Your Mother's Spray

I am a beach girl, through and through.  As many of you know, I grew up in Rhode Island, and I spent every summer day at the beach as a kid.  In my teenage years, I would get home from the beach and refuse to shower because I loved the waves the ocean gave my naturally straight hair.  I was so excited to receive NYM's Beach Babe Texturing Sea Salt Spray, especially since I live an hour and a half from the beach now.

Example A: Angsty high school Meg [with beach curls]

Here's how I used NYM's Beach Babe: After I showered, I blow dried my hair for 5 minutes.  Then, I put about 10-12 sprays into my hair, all over, and brushed it through.  After that, I flipped my hair up and down a few times and ran my fingers through it, trying to give it some volume.  Immediately, the roots felt very greasy and it didn't seem to have too much hold.  However, after an hour or so, the greasy feeling completely went away and I was left with some volume at the ends.  Yes, I acknowledge that my super-long straight hair is probably not the demographic they were looking for, but it did seem to give my hair more bounce without feeling hard.  The best part, I would have to say, is the amazing coconut smell.  The next morning, my hair still smelled great and was still not greasy.

It looks like the spray added some bounce and wave to your hair! I have stick-straight hair and have a hard time achieving "beach waves" without a curling wand. I enjoyed all of your reviews :)
