    Yes! I used the texturizing sea salt spray for over 8 months. My Daughter suggested it when I was complaining about my hair's maddening, lifetime poof factor. It was a miracle to me, as I had curls that I didn't even know existed and the poof factor was eliminated. It was truly amazing until things started going very wrong.

    Although I had given up (maybe 2 years prior?) both chemicals (hair dye) and heat of any kind, my hair started looking and feeling, totally fried. It was when I started searching for a remedy that I learned about the CG method.

    After a ton of research, I now know my hair was fried by the salt. Salt is VERY drying - which makes sense when you think about it. It's been used as a preservative for years! You can put in whatever lovely moisturizers with it, but it's still salt. I've had to trim and baby my hair all of this time, just as much as I would have if I had been frying it with flat irons, curling wands, and blow dryers, and/or hair dye.

    I should also add, that my hair is frog hair fine and naturally, highly porous. I'm sure that contributed greatly to the damaging factor this product had on my hair.
    I would be VERY, VERY careful using any kind of beach wave product. Especially, for any extended period of time.
