Drying and crunchy.
I really wanted to love this product. I have thick, curly hair and this product wreaked absolute havoc on it. Even when I only used a wee bit, my hair was crunchy and sticky. The worst part is the drying side effect. I had to stop using it because my hair was suffering. On the bright side, it smells heavenly like lavender! However, I would not recommend, especially if you have dry hair.

A little drying, reminds me of hairspray
The reason I gave this a try was to define my curls in the morning after brushing my hair. This smelled very nice with the lavender in it and a bit like the salty air at the ocean, which I adore. But I have fine, naturally curly hair and it kind of felt like hair spray. It dried out my hair a little, which I expect is the sea salt. It definitely gives you that day at the beach look. But for my hair I like a more smooth, tangle-free, not as messy appearance. I think it would look great on someone with fine, straight hair. My hair looked like a bird’s nest and I didn’t like that I couldn’t run my fingers through my hair. I only used a little bit. But I used it on dry hair, not wet. It may be perfect for others, but didn’t work for me.

Nice wave but react to product slightly
I liked the body and wave that this product gave to my hair. Unfortunately, I have to avoid getting it on my scalp as its get itchy from, I assume, the salt. Possibly fine if you don’t have dry skin/scalp.

I AM SURPRISED THAT I LIKED THIS. IT IS SO EASY TO USE SINCE YOU JUST SPRITZ IT ON YOUR HAIR BUT YOU HAVE TO USE IT VERY SPARINGLY. I HAVE ONLY USED IT ON WET HAIR. I DO NOT THINK THAT IT IS MEANT FOR DRY HAIR. IT GIVES YOU CURLS EASILY WITHOUT HAVING TO SCRUNCH A TONE OF PRODUCT IN YOUR HAIR. THIS BOTTLE WILL LAST A VERY LONG TIME

I really like this product. I have really curly, long hair, so there’s a lot of it, but a few sprays are quite enough for my hair. It doesn’t weigh it down, or frizz it out, and it smells nice. Just be careful not to use too much, because again, a little bit does the trick. I feel nice and beachy and in good spirits after using it.

Gives my hair and my mood a lift
I got seduced by the name but really expected this to be a bit of a gimmicky product. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how unique and wonderful this spray is. It gives such a natural texture to my hair – not a stiff hold like a typical hairspray, but more like a fullness and moveable control. I don’t get any of that flaking or whiteness that other’s complain about. This puts me in a beachy state of mind every time I use it.

Great product! Gives my long, straight hair a day at the beach look. Nice scent too.

Fun beach-y mist
It does have some of the aspects of the beach – slightly salty, and leaves hair slightly more moist. Use on wet hair – gets a little sticky if used on dry hair – and use sparingly rather than heavily. I like to combine it with the Bourbon/Vanilla/ Tangerine Texturizer by John Masters to enhance curl and softness. Also good alone, it’s fun.

Gives fine hair a boost
I hate styling products, like the way they feel. This is the first one I’ve found that doesn’t remind me of its presence all day. It gives me more body. I’ve only used it on wet hair, with no problem of flaking etc. I’ve tried making my own salt spray, but the sprayer gets clogged. Not so with Mr. Masters’. Smells great.

White film and flakes ruin the beach look
The Sea Mist does deliver a beach look. It smells pleasant: a mixture of salty and sweet. Unfortunately, the beach look doesn’t last for long and your hair becomes basically just tangled. The sea salt dries and leaves a white film on your hair, that will eventually flake off. I would recommend just using it on wet or damp hair, not dry hair. I like that it is organic, something that you can’t find in many styling products. I really wanted this product to work.
Give hair a relaxed beach look with this USDA Certified Organic spray that adds texture and volume.
