California Girls




I discovered an amazing hairspray by Fekkai called Marine Summer Hair Beach Waves. It's only available for a limited time and is undoubtedly the best hair product I've ever had the pleasure of using. It creates the most beautiful waves that will make you feel like the ultimate beach babe even if you've been too busy working instead. If you're lucky to catch a few waves this summer, an added benefit is the UV shield. I have many friends who swear by Fekkai and absolutely love this product. The only complaint I've heard is that some find the scent of coconut a little overpowering. There is a noticeable smell, but I find it pleasant and refreshing, and am reminded of the beach. I need to stock up and buy a few bottles before it's too late. It does a great job at controlling frizz, a battle I fight during summertime. I use a spritz or two and run my fingers through dry hair creating loose tousled waves. I usually lack the skills at styling my own hair and am impressed that my hair can look fabulous with one simple product. The texture of my curly hair is enhanced and it provides just the right amount of volume. My hair is healthy, shiny, and beach chic 'til day's end. You can buy this product at Neiman Marcus or Sephora

Why do beauty companies always discontinue their best products :( Maybe they just want to see how popular this is and they'll change their mind? I'll check it out - I LOVE coconut smell in the summer.

Thanks for the great tip, Beth. This product sounds like it'd be perfect for my hair texture and lifestyle!

This is a product I have to try! Thanks. My head is always swimming from the over - abundance of products and can never decide which one to choose. I think the coconut smell would be great for the summer.

Sounds like it's worth a try! Why a limited time? If it actually makes hair wavy AND controls frizz, it seems like it should be part of their permanent line!

I have always wanted to achieve this easy-breezy-beachy-chic look - I love seeing it on others, but with my fine hair, it seems to last about 15 minutes at the most. I will definitely look into this product! I appreciate tips such as these~

Sanity Fair- I totally agree. I hate when beauty products I love are discontinued. This product is part of Fekkai's 'Summer Hair Collection.' From what I read it's a new collection and I'm thinking the same thing as you--they're going to see how popular it is and go from there. And yes, the coconut smell is extremely nice.

annechovie- Yes, it sounds like it'd be perfect for your hair type.

A Thousand Clapping Hands- It's incredibly easy to become overwhelmed with the sea of hair products there are to choose from. I always seem to have good luck with Fekkai.

Heather- It's part of their summer collection. I'm hoping these products will be a hit and stay, or at least rejoin us next summer. There's actually a frizz control spray, that sounds pretty great too.

Sarah Klassen- There are many reviewers on Sephora with fine hair who say the product worked fabulously on them. You should definitely try it out.
