beach waves

what is the time limit on when it is no longer acceptable to blog about new year's resolutions??? i might be getting close. will you give me until the weekend to do it? this 5 day work week is sucking the life out of me, but i promise to do it before the end of the weekend. mostly i want it documented to keep me accountable.

in the meantime, i tried out a new hair product...

i was in line at urban outfitters today and saw this beach babe sea salt spray. my hair has some good potential in the right conditions (living in the dominican republic), but in dryer than dry utah, there is no such thing as beach waves. whenever i get super lazy and let my hair air dry or sleep on it wet, it's basically a frizzy mess. i was pretty excited to try out this new product.

i tried it out for the first time on saturday. i got out of the shower and needed to leave ASAP so i put it in my soaking wet hair. it wasn't awful, but i didn't love it.

i tried it again last night. my hair was much less wet and i went to bed with wet hair. it was still wet this morning so i sprayed some more and used the blow dryer a little. it's so darn cold here, and i didn't want to have frozen hair. my review...i like it. my mostly air dried hair definitely looks better than it ever has before. it is way less frizzy, and i actually kind of liked it. i don't know if my hair looks like i've been at the beach all day, but it kind of feels like it.

it was only $8 which is far less than a lot of other products i buy so for the price i would recommend it. i will definitely be using it again. one paid me to review this product. i bought it myself and am expressing my own opinions about the product.


  1. I might just have to try this considering I live on the beach :)

    1. You're so lucky! Let me know if you try it.

  2. Thank for posting this!! I'm always looking for ways to cut down my hair prep time. I'm so over taking time to do my hair. I'll have to try this out sometime!!

  3. THe picture you posted looked good!
    If it's too frizzy for your liking, maybe try adding another product to combat the frizz, and see how that works... :)

    1. i did use a teeny tiny bit of moraccan oil, but i was afraid it would be yucky if i used too much. i might have to try another product.
