Product Review: Aquage-Sea Salt texturizing spray

Photobucket

Has anyone ever used this stuff before? It all started when I went on Amazon.com to order the bumble and bumble surf spray. My order was canceled due to out of stock so I got right back online and ordered the next sea salt spray I could find. This was what I got. It cost me $18.
I've used it twice and I hate it! I was under the impression that when sprayed on wet hair I would have these great beach waves as it air dried. The first time I used it, I sprayed it on my hair when it was wet and when I looked in the mirror 2 hours later I was a frizzy, stringy mess!
The second time I tried it I waited until my hair was damp and I got better results, but had to put frizz serum on the top because there were tons of fly-a-ways. Also, it still looked stringy to me. UGGGG!! Is it just me? Am I using this product wrong? Or is this one just a dud?
Also, has anyone tried the bumble and bumble one? Is it better or still stringy?

Update: I just read in this months issue of Glamor that a trick to surf spray is to spray it in damp hair. Make hair into 3 sections and make buns. Let dry completely (or sleep on it). When you undo the buns the surf spray helps to hold the wave that is made. Sounds good! Will be trying this asap!

Oh dear! That is an expensive product not to work. Thanks for the heads up.

Please let me know how the Glamour method works out for you, because I've been contemplating some surf spray myself!

Thanks for posting this - I've been on the hunt for similar products and I will be sure avoiding this one!

I haven't used these products as I like to wash my hair every other day and I know using something like this would require a daily wash. But I would think if you have frizzy hair to begin with you would need to put anti-frizz product on towel dried hair then put this spray on when the hair is damp.
Cause i know when I am on the beach the naturally salty hair of mine is always frizzy!

I've seen the Bumble and Bumble on Sephora's website several times, I think it's one of their favorite items right now. Maybe they have it in stock?

I'm not a huge fan of these sprays because the salt water drys the heck out of my hair! I curious to see if their tip works...a blog post for that is definitely in order! xo
