Gnarly Whale Beach Waves Hairspray Review.

About:
“Get gorgeous wavy hair without even setting your foot in the ocean. Easily add extra volume and subtle waves to your hair with just a few sprays. Our Beach Waves spray is completely vegan and made from scratch.

USE: Best used on wet hair, but can be used on dry hair as well. Spray on, dry as usual (or even let air dry!) and rock those waves. Great way to get an extra boost to hair that hasn’t been washed for a day or two, also!
 
SCENT: Peppermint
 
FRAGRANCE TYPE: Essential Oil
 
INGREDIENTS: Our beach waves products include water, mediterranean sea salt, aloe vera gel, coconut oil, grapefruit seed extract, and essential oils and/or fragrance.

We don’t consider any of our products or scents to be orga​nic, but some of our scents are natural – any of the ones with essential oils. (This includes Cedarwood, Citrus Sensation, Doublemint, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Lime, Orange, Peppermint, Pink Grapefruit, Spearmint, Tangerine, and Tea Tree.)
All of our products are 100% vegan and cruelty free. Final product testing was done on humans.

Gnarly Whale Beach Waves Hairspray Review

If you’ve read any of my prior skin care, hair care & nutrition reviews, then you’re familiar with the fact that I strive for 100% organic (the name of my blog even suggests it!) 🙂
That said, there is a spectrum. On one end of the spectrum lies the junky, chemical-pumped, hazardous products that are so loaded with harmful ingredients that it’s amazing they are allowed to be sold. On the other end of the spectrum is purity: no bull honkey, completely organic wonderment. The Gnarly Whale peppermint beach waves spray falls somewhere in that spectrum, closer to the pure end.
I do like seeing a simple ingredient list in which I can read and recognize all of the ingredients. That’s the case with this spray. However, none of them are organic. The whole reason that organic ingredients are important is because they lessen the toxic burden on the body. So, some people might view this ingredient list and see nothing wrong with it. I see it with a more honed in vision and am wishing for more quality here. I know what non-organic can mean and I don’t want that. I want to use the best products on my hair and skin.
All of that said, this beach spray performs well (which I’m sure is all that some people care about). It provides the hair a bit of volume and texture. The way I see it, it helps you do something with somewhat dirty hair. Peppermint is one of my favorite essential oil scents, and I really enjoy this smell in my hair. I see this product as a pretty good starter for someone looking to start making beauty swaps: throwing out their old junky products and beginning to use products that are closer to nature.

I had a good feeling about this brand after meeting the founders and then another good-feeling-wave after reading the first ingredient list. It’s evident that they trust and utilize plants to elevate the health of skin. As a plant nerd, herbalism junkie, and superfood geek, I really revere this. It fully resonates and aligns with what I look for in skincare.
