I have been using this product for years. My hair gets oily quickly and I haven't once experienced that with this product. I spray in the middle/ends of the hair and it bounces up really nicely. No crunchiness also. Totally natural feeling and looking
Compared to a few of the other "Sea Salt" and "Surf sprays" I prefer this one. It does make my hair feel a little bit dry but if I'm curling my hair - this stuff is pretty awesome for helping my straight hair curl and hold. It doesn't really make your hair feel crunchy unless you spray it heavily.
