Product Review and Comparison: Sunsilk Waves of Envy Sea Mist Spray vs. Garnier Fructis Surf Hair Texturizing Spray

Sunsilk Waves of Envy Sea Mist Spray

While this spray did leave my hair soft, like it claims, it didnt give as much texture as I would have liked. It did make my hair wavier then I can normally get though.

The smell is salty, which, compared with Garnier's citrusy smell, gives it more of a beachy feel.

I had to use more of this product to get the same effect as I got with less of the Garnier Fructis Surf Hair Texturixing Spray

Which Product is Better?

I would definitly reccomend the Garnier Fructis Surf Hair Texturizing Spray over the Sunsilk Waves of Envy Sea Mist Spray. While both products do give my hair texture, the Garnier givesa lot more texture and volume with less product.

Product Review: Garnier Fructis Style Surf Hair Texturizing Spray

I'm not sure if this product is still being sold in retailers, as I couldnt find it on Garnier Frucit's website. But here's a review of it anyway, since Ive had this product for a while now, and use it occasionally.

It smells really good, kinda citrusy. It claims to "provide definition and volume to hair with a flrxible hold anf non gloss, matte finish. It definitly gives volume to my super flat hair, which is a plus. I tend to use this spray on bad hair days, when my hair won't volumize for anything. It won''t give my hair beach waves unless I really work at it, but for me, thats not a problem since the only thing I really ask for in any product is volume. If your hair is thicker, and tends to curl easily, this may be able to give you easy waves. And I know if you already have curly hair, it will give you the loose beachy waves, since I used to use this when I had a perm.

Later this week, I will review the Sunsilk Waves of Envy Sea Mist spray, then do a comparison of the two. Which one do you guys think is best?

Current Ins and Outs

I just read on Allthatglitters21's blog her list of Ins and outs, and thought it would be a great idea to post mine. :-)


  • Tank tops: Its been super hot lately, and usually I dont like wearing tank tops, but this summer Ive been wearing them a lot. Ive figured out new ways to create style with them, that previously I never thought I could.
  • Twitter: I LOVE Twitter I am so addicted, but its ok, lol. I feel so connected to so many different makeup gurus, beauty stores, fashion stores, even magazines, with Twitter. People who diss Twitter, obviously have not tried it for long enough.
  • Water: I always have a water bottle with me, I need to stay hydrated and I feel soo healthy for it
  • Heroes and True Blood: I jsut started watching these shows the past few months, and LOVE them so much.
  • Lotions: I NEVER used to use lotions, now I use it every chance I get. Currently I am using Victoria's Secret Pure Seduction Body Lotion


  • The heat: seriously, it is way to hot here.
  • people who dont mind their own business

I dont think there are many more Outs

What are your Ins and Outs? Post them as a comment, I'd love to see them :-)
