Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray

Captain Blankenship
Mermaid Mane Sea Salt Hair Spray

I have a new favorite hair product. I picked this Captain Blankenship
Mermaid Mane Spray
up at Urban Outfitters while looking for the Mermaid Shampoo to sniff (but it’s online only apparently.) I didn’t find that line but I did find this sea salt spray. I was a little skeptical until I watched this video tutorial on the best way to use the spray. Now I love it. No really, I’m thinking of buying another as backup already!

I had never used a sea salt spray before but I have used other “beach inspired” items like Bumble & Bumble’s Surf Spray and was never happy with how flat and greasy they made my hair. This spray adds a lot of volume and texture to my flat thin hair. The texture is a dry beachy feeling with lots of movement without being brittle or stiff.

And the scent is fantastic! It’s described as a “beach rose” but I find it to be more citrus smelling than floral. Very similar to neroli.

Mermaid Mane Sea Salt Hair Spray

Extremely easy to use
Works on both wet or dry hair
Great fragrance that isn’t overpowering
All day style hold
Love the packaging design

Bottle size is small and you have to use a lot of the product
Price is a little high for how quickly you use up the product

As listed, my only complaint is the size of the bottle. It’s small and you tend to need to use a lot of the product for the really beachy look. I think the bottle should be a little bigger or the price should be a few bucks less. It’s more of a splurge item IMO.

But, ya know, mermaid. :)

Liese Hair Styling

Liese products

Tried out two of the 3 Liese products I received courtesy of Yesstyle. One for an airy style and the other for permed styles. Both are used on dry hair as “fixes!”

Liese products

Liese Airy Style Blow-Dry Water

Gives an airy volume without greasy texture
Easy to use
Dries quickly with hairdryer

Does add a slight hairspray texture

I really liked the Airy Style Blow-Dry Water spray. It does exactly what it says. The texture it leaves behind isn’t too bad. It’s similar to a hair spray texture but with more give. I would recommend this for anyone with thin flat hair like mine

Liese Wave Style Defining Foam

Easy to apply
Fast drying
Weightless texture

Best for permed hair

The perm I got in the summer is about 99% washed out however I found this product to be pretty useful in adding waves. I applied a bit of the Wave Style Defining foam to my un-styled but dry hair. I then put it up in a ponytail bun (where you create a sort of bun from only pulling your hair halfway through the tie) and I took it out about an hour later when I got to work and had these great waves that lasted all day! Usually when I do this the waves fall out throughout the day but this product added a little extra hold to them.
