Anyone tried that 'beach head' styling stuff?

Apparently it gives you the tousled look of a sandy salty day at the beach...

Yeah, I was wondering about that. I was thinking it might make my fine hair fuller, but I wasn't sure if it would just dry it out.

My friend's look has been transformed by the stuff. She has fine straight hair and now she'd beaching it up it's all scruffy and funky and she looks great.

But she was quite gorgeous to begin with.

I've been using Alberto Umbro (sp) Salt spray and I love it. Also got the backcomb spray that does a good job on my roots. Haven't tried any other salt sprays.

After a day on the beach, I look like a crazy woman with mad, frizzy hair.

I would not want to replicate this look.

personally I prefer the equivalent product of Fekkai (I think it's ocean something) B&B was too drying for me...
Also am not an expert but I think it depends on your hair - I think these products work best on medium-fine hair that already has a tendency to go wavy - my hair dries naturally in soft wavey curls so a product like this gives them a more defined look

I use the Fekkai one. But Toni and guy do a blow out spray that's half protein half salt so it maintains the condition of your hair.
If it's volume you are after go for bumble and bumble thickening products. They are excellent.

I agree with smartypants-a day on the beach for me has me looking like a possessed middle aged mad woman....not someting I think is worth paying money for to replicate. I hate salt sprays etc anyway-my hair is greasy and sticky enough without these products!!!
