Awesome Waves That Smell Great!
As a child I had the straightest straight hair you can imagine. Curling it was impossible. As I have matured, that has changed somewhat. My hair's not curly by any means, but it has the potential to be wavy. I blow it out regularly and wear it straight, so the waves haven't ever been given a chance to develop much. Since it's summer, I decided to put away the blow dryer for a while and let my hair air dry. Well, that was a frizzy, wavy-ish disaster of a mess. I don't use shampoo on my hair, so I don't use many products on my hair. I decided I needed something to bring out the waves, but it had to be free of build-up causing silicones, waxes and petrochemicals. I had a trial-size bottle of another Alterna Bamboo Beach waves product which I started using and loved. I decided to buy a full-size bottle, but Folica doesn't carry the Boho Waves. However, they have this one, which has a nearly identical ingredient list, so I bought it instead.
I love the smell of this product for starters. But, I also love the style it gives my hair. I start out with pretty wet hair. I spray some Alterna Kendi Dry Oil Mist on my hair first (to nourish and shine). Then I bend over, scrunch, spray the Beach Waves mist through my hair, scrunch some more. I stand upright, turn my hair into ringlets and spray again. Once hair has completely air-dried, I run my fingers through then spray and scrunch a bit more. It gives me a really cute, relaxed, frizz-free wavy style that I have never been able to have my entire life, and I LOVE IT!
I will definitely repurchase this product!

Great Hold, Feels Great!
Love this product! I sprayed it through my hair and scrunched. I have very thick hair, it held the beachy waves well and felt great in my hair. Oh, and it smells awesome like all the bamboo products..This is a wonderful addition to an amazing line of hair care!
