I have been using Herbal Essences Set Me Up Hair Wax for a while now and I absolutely LOVE IT! Just a small amount rubbed between my fingers and through my roots adds texture and volume to my fine locks without weighing my hair down and making it flat as many products tend to. And the scent is heavenly but not overpowering! This is a staple in my daily routine! ...read more

Normally I'm not into more expensive hair care but I decided to see what the fuss was all about with the @oribe dry texturizing spray...in my opinion his stuff receives praises for a reason! I have other texturizing sprays I enjoy using but this is truly a "dry" spray, where it gives your hair a lovely fluffy, texturizing look without feeling like you have used any product. It feels so light weight and it no sticky or tacky feel - you can run your hands through your hair or fluff it back up and you don't have any residue on your hands afterwards. I have a lot of hair but it's rather fine and goes flat super easily so I see this a styling product I definitely enjoy using when I wear my hair down. It helps gives great grip for braids and messy buns as well. Despite the price, which turned me off from initially trying it for so long, as long as they make this I will absolutely keep repurchasing! ...read more

THIS STUFF IS SERIOUSLY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .

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: ...read more

About a 2 years ago I decided to take the plunge and cut off my past shoulder length hair into a pixie cut; this decision would have been an ABSOLUTE DISASER of i hadn't been introduced to Manipulator!! It texturizes, adds hold of varying degrees, and can be worked into damp hair for a variety of styles. I added waves, spikes, blew dry smooth, you name it! So long as I added Manipulator as a base variety felt possible, which definitely isn't always the case with super short hair. It smells like piña coladas, only takes the tiniest bit (about a fingertip for super short hair like mine was) and lasts forever. I've since grown out my hair, but at this point I buy it for the smell and to work through just washed hair to make it easier to use hot rollers later in the week. Truly a keeper. ...read more

This stuff is SO good. I got a haircut recently and with curly hair it's always tough to deal with shorter locks. The hold is great and keeps away the frizz! My only dislike is my hair feels a bit dirty after use... authentic beach feel right there! It's best used when hair is wet... Use sparingly! Love the product for the price! ...read more
