13K Reviews: The Best Drugstore Texturizing Spray
Based on 12,564 Influenster Reviews
I have really thick hair, and even though it's cut short, I still have a problem getting products to really do anything for my hair. But, Not Your Mother's is an amazing brand.
I had seen some of their products in stores before, but never thought of buying them (so, thank you Influenster for sending me this!). I am in love.
The sea salt texturizing spray gives my hair that 'I just walked on the beach' look. When my hair is dry, it looks sassy and wind-whipped. My hair is naturally straight, so this spray gives me a nice gentle wave look. It's great for a night out if you want your hair to have an awesome, sexy wave to it!!
Oh, and can we talk about the smell? IT'S FABULOUS! And it lingers on your hair all day!!! If you like people to stop and say 'wow, you smell amazing!' this product is for you!!!
So, how do I use this stuff? Well, after I wash or wet my hair, I towel dry it as much as possible. Usually, I am left with a damp, crazy mess on my head. I spray the NYM's all over my hair, and rub it in with my hands. I let it sit for a few mins in my craziness. Then, I brush and style my hair as normal. It dries naturally into a beautiful, wavy masterpiece.
Now, my sister also uses this. However, she will blowdry her hair after applying the product. It gives your hair an even bigger wave and more volume. It works better for her, because she has longer, less thick hair-so it doesn't turn into a huge afro like mine would if I did this!!
Anyways, if you're looking for a nice-smelling, effective product to bring awesome volume and texture to your hair, NOT YOUR MOTHER'S is for you c:
Update: this stuff is magic. I used the L'Oréal extraordinary clay line, combed my hair, separated into two sections, sprayed it all over, scrunched, and air dried. My hair has NEVER looked this good with anything other than DevaCurl but even with DevaCurl I can't comb my hair or I won't get good results. Now I can have smooth, combed, wavy hair for a fraction of the price. (Sorry for my gross no makeup face, but the hair is what is important here lol)
I had heard about sea salt sprays for my type of hair but had never tried any of them and didn't hold out much hope. But this has worked great for my hair. I just spray it on my dry hair and scrunch everything up and voila - my curls are back and the frizz is not so bad.
So glad to have something that really works! And that the price does not break my bank!
