Haircare, the final frontier. Also known as the never-ending search to find products that make my hair look shiny and voluminous, without being frizzy, greasy or weighed down. This is one area of my beauty routine which always seems to be a challenge. Recently, I discovered some new styling products from Not Your Mother’s that may or may not help.

First, let’s start with the product that didn’t work for me. It’s the Beach Babe Soft Waves Sea Salt Spray. I love salt sprays, especially during summer. I really like that beachy, tousled hair look, even if most sprays leave your hair feeling kind of crunchy the next day.

When I saw that the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe spray delivered soft waves I had high hopes. Would it give me waves without the crunch and residual product build-up? Yes and no.

The spray is formulated with sea salt and sea kelp for texture, and aloe to prevent dryness and help with hydration. Unfortunately, the combination of these ingredients didn’t work in my hair. My hair looked weighed down and frizzy. I had to play around with it a lot to even achieve the look above.

Once I went outside, the humidity hit my hair hard. The waves I did have became puffy and frizzy. No matter how many times I use it, the results are disappointing. Although it’s a 2016 Best of Allure pick, it’s not a best of pick for me at all.

Now let’s talk about the Not Your Mother’s styling product that did work on my hair. It’s the All Eyes On Me 10-in-1 Hair Perfector, and it’s quickly become a styling product favorite.

One of the things I like best about the All Eyes On Me spray is how it helps keep my hair looking amazing on day 2 and 3. In fact, each time I use it, my hair looks better as time progresses. It has body and shine, without looking frizzy or weighed down. I think this has a lot to do with the fact that the Perfector seals the cuticles, while also strengthening and protecting my hair.

I can’t say enough good things about this product. It actually lives up to its 10-in-1 hair benefiting promises. This is precisely why I am showcasing a picture of my hair at the end of a full day of being both inside and out, in the summer, in the south.

If you’re looking for an all-in-one styling product, I highly recommend the Not Your Mother’s 10-in-1 Hair Perfector. It will make your hair more manageable, without the need for numerous products.
