Have you ever dreamed of having that beach babe “I swam in the sea and my hair dried like this” look? I did when I had long hair. Not ALL the time, but in the summer, yes. It had its time and place. Now that I have short hair it’s a whole other story cause it tends to look more like “I slept really bad and then it got really windy” kind of thing, lol! That being said, surf sprays are still useful with short hair, and today we’ll be looking at Clean Enhanced Organics Surf Spray ($21 USD).
You won’t find their ingredients list online, but since I have my hands on a bottle, here they are.
Magnesium Sulfate – An inorganic salt found in sea water and in mineral deposits.
Polysorbate 20 – A surfactant and emulsifier used in cleaners and personal care products.
Sodium Chloride (Dead Sea Salt)
Laminaria Digitata (Kelp) Extract*
Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Peel Exytract*
Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli) Leaf Extract*
Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil*
Betula Lenta (Birch) Oil*
Tetrasodium EDTA – A chelating agent, used to sequester and decrease the reactivity of metal ions that may be present in a product.
Phenoxyethanol – A preservative used in cosmetics and personal care products.
Potassium Sorbate – A potassium salt of sorbic acid, a naturally occuringantimicrobial compound; used as a preservative.
Surf Spray creates a salty, sun-dried, wind-swept and sexy look in hair. Provides extra-strong hold, control, moisture and style.
So, what do I use this for? Texture! This spray is perfect for adding texture to my hair. I spray some in before I dry my hair and it gives similar results as if I was using mousse or gel. I find it easier with this to control where and how much I use, because of the pump.
It has a very pleasant fresh smell that kind of reminds me of the sea.
I tried using this as a setting spray and it gave a really light hold, and it also took longer than regular hairspray to dry. So using it that way isn’t worth it for me.
While I can’t say how this would work on long hair, I can definitely say that it adds great texture to my hair and it’s been working great for me.
Have you tried a surf spray before?
