Picked this product up as I’m always on the hunt for good air-drying products, but unfortunately this one didn’t work out quite as well as I had hoped. While not a total dud, it’s probably my least favorite sea salt spray that I’ve ever tried. Which is not to say that it doesn’t work, because it does. It actually does a pretty good job adding volume and texture to my fine, straight hair. What it also does though it make it feel immediately dirty and kind of sticky, even if I use it on freshly washed hair. It also makes my hair more prone to tangling and even matting, which is a problem as my hair does NOT need any “help” in that regard. Plus I think it stinks, though YMMV on that one. Fragrance is a personal preference obviously, but I think Kristin chose poorly for the scent for her line. To my nose it smells like a bouquet of flowers that’s on its way out mixed with stagnant water, and unfortunately the scent lingers. On the positive side I do like the packaging. You don’t often see salt sprays in aerosol style cans, which is a shame as I think they mist better than the pump style bottles.

So yeah buyer beware on this one! Like I said, it does actually add a lot of texture and fullness to the hair, but at least for me there are too many other drawbacks to this product to make it something I’d want to use.

I am slowly making my way through some of the Kristin Ess products sold at Target and she recently added a few more items at the beginning of this year. I don't need anymore hair products but I can't seem to stop trying these. They have mostly been good, a couple fails and one great (Workable Texture Spray is the bomb). This air dry spray is very good. It says sea salt on the bottle but this does not make my hair crunchy or dry at all. It has the usual smell of this line but I think she dialed it down a little for this second batch of releases as the floral smell is not as overwhelming. My hair is fine, thin and dry due to highlights and this keeps it soft and adds a fair amount of body. I have been air drying my hair over a year now and it has helped my hair feel and look better but I can't just wash and go as it just is too thin and flat. It states it has a matte finish and that is correct - no extra shine with this. It does actually give me hair some bend when I scrunch it when it is drying which is pretty amazing as my hair is stick straight. This line ranges from $10 to $14 and I think this was at the top price range. It is a spray bottle and I usually prefer a cream but that is my only complaint which is specific to me. There is another product in this line for air drying that is a cream that I have not figured out to use (there are a lot of products that seem to have overlap but if you go online you can get some pretty specific instructions how to use these). Overall, if you are into air drying, this is something to try - I am impressed with it.
