Some of you guys must have seen reviews of Healthy Sexy Hairs Soy Renewal Beach hairspray
popping up on various Pakistani blogs, which were generously sent to bloggers by the Pakistani Beauty Blogging Community - PBBC by the company. Here's what my experience with the product in question has been like :)
First things first, it smells divine! I love the smell, and the scent lingers on your hair as well for a bit so thats always good. The pump and its secure open/close mechanisms definitely insure that there will be no unwanted leaks anywhere. The product, according to what's written on the back, can be used in two ways. It can either be applied to damp or dry hair. I've tried this under both circumstances a couple of times each and here's my experience with it.
While applying this on damp hair, I found that it ends up drying my hair and makes them feel a bit straw-y, definitely not the look anyone aims for but it does define my curls wonderfully. All my waves get instant oopmh immediately, giving the 'beachy' look. When applied on dry hair, or as I tried it on my second day hair, it gives a ton of volume! Again, it is drying but my thin hair really needs volume on the second day of shampoo-ing and this does just that.
In a perfect world, I would have lovely defined curls with a ton of volume, so what I do is basically use this on dry hair and then to counter act the dry-ness and the stiff-feeling hair I usually put a hair serum on afterwards. Seems like extra hassle, but sometimes I end up using the spray like that.
I tried taking before and after pictures of my hair but honestly the difference really didnt show up on my not-so-fancy camera haha, so here's a before and after shot of my sister's hair, who has hair that is mostly straight.
As you can see, the frizzy-ness is reduced and the waves are more defined after that usage of the spray. The spray claims to have Argon Oil in it, but I just can't see how a product with Argon Oil could be drying, since I personally use Argon Oil for my hair and it is very moisturizing.
All in all, I really like the way this spray reduces frizz, defines waves and adds a ton of volume but the part where it makes my hair rough isn't something I'm keen on. I've found a way to work with that, so I still end up reaching for this at least once a week.
