Using this product alone will dry out your hair, because salt is one of the main ingredients. However, when using with a styling cream, this is a miracle product that will transform your curls. Whether you want loose waves, or bouncy ringlets, this will do the trick. Works best when you let air dry outdoors or blow dry.
This product left my hair a sticky frizzy mess. It was ok at first applying in the am, but as the day wore on it got worse. An expensive mistake on my part.
I have 3a thining hair. (The thinning part totally sux but unfortunately a reality of getting older for many women.) The two major attributes I look for in styling products are volumizing and curl enhancement. I'd heard that South Surf Spray was a texturizer which means increasing volume for my type of hair. At first I wasn't sure how to use this product but I was determined to figure it out. After experimenting with it for a week or two, it has become a regular on my list of hair styling products. I've outlined the way I use South Surf Spray below. STEP 1: Aloe Vera Gel I exit the shower with hair dripping wet. I apply a liberal amount of aloe vera gel to my scalp and hair in a two step process. First, I apply it to my hair in gentle scrunching motions making sure that all areas of my hair have aloe vera gel on them. The second step is make sure that the aloe vera is applied to the roots and my scalp. To do this I use my finger tips to distribute the gel by "pushing up" the roots all over my scalp. It is important to try to leave the curls untouched while pushing the roots. I accomplish this by starting at the base of my skull UNDER the hair and working my finger tips up my scalp in small circles gently pushing up on the roots as I move around my scalp. I access the crown of my head by lifting up sections of curls near the top of my head and then pushing up roots in the crown area. It is a very quick process taking a minute or two at the most. STEP 2: Microfiber Towel I immediately take a microfiber towel and gently use it to dry and help curl my hair by softly scrunching my curls, including those on the crown. I try to touch each area of hair only once with the towel. STEP 3: South Surf Spray Once this is done I proceed with other post-shower activities. When I'm done with everything else it's time for the South Surf Spray. I spray it lightly all over my head. I then proceed with another round of "root pushing". And as my hair dries I continue to push the roots every 10-15 minutes. RESULTS By the time my hair is fully dry the styling products and root pushing have maximized the volume of my hair. The South Surf Spray has kept my hair from getting frizzy which it does when I use the aloe vera gel only. My curls are well-defined, they are not crunchy, no frizz and the style holds all day and into the evening. I would have rated it 5 curls if it was more reasonably priced. It costs $23 for 4 oz (not $15 as stated in the product description above) and that is too expensive for only 4 oz of product.
I love this stuff. I use it on my hair when it is wet. I find, for me, it works better this way. It gives just the right amount of hold. I also use either gelee or biolage hydroseal creme first.
Love, love, love this product. I have 3A curls and when I want a real 'beach hair' look, this does the job. It loosens up my girls and provides my hair with a beach wave as though I was at the beach in Italy (mediterranean salty water feel) and the hold is great. Love it! Much better than the Bohemian Beach spray by David Babaii.
Works ok, but leaves my hair feeling dry. The curls come out kind of stringy too - but that is how my hair normally looks and feels after the beach.
Interesting product. Not great for my thick, coarse hair. But would probably work well for finer or wavier hair for a piecey look
