Beauty Bounty: Oribe Après Beach Spray

The last time that I was cajoled, a sucrose sweet coercion, into purchasing a salon product from my favorite and trusted hair stylist, I have to admit, I was not disappointed; I use the product frequently, and to my great satisfaction, it does wonders for smoothing and calming my hair as I blow it straight. During my most recent visit to the salon, I was again vulnerable, susceptible to the roving rhetoric of hairsprays, pomades, gels, and other such chemical and organic materials of primping and preening convenience. This time, the seduction was with the Oribe Après Beach spray; as the name would suggest, it lends the hair a tousled and sultry look, however, does so without imparting the saline sheen and crunch that many beach products seem to embody. My hair remained soft, and maintained its natural wave throughout the day, voluminous and wildly tame. The type of beach spray that evokes a long, pleasant ride about on a sailboat, or a yacht, as opposed to fighting the surf and succumbing to the force of the tides.

  1. No salt and crunch huh? If this was one month ago I would have given it a shot but I've lopped off all my hair
