About Captain Blankenship
Captain Blankenship’s lush, botanical hair and body products were inspired by founder Jana’s childhood on the coast of Maine, where she spent every day immersed in the natural beauty of the area. The company’s ingredients, from Nilotica shea butter sourced from a women’s collective in Uganda to an Atlantic ocean seaweed called bladderwrack, are renewable and natural, unlike the conventional stuff most beauty brands rely on. Captain Blankenship takes its relationship with the planet seriously: It’s a Certified B Corporation and a 1% For The Planet company. With its clean, affordable products that feel like sunshine and salt breeze in a bottle, Captain Blankenship is on a mission to create a direct link with nature that you can tap into every day, no matter where you live.
Why we love them
Captain Blankenship’s Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray has gained a cult-level following for a reason: The texturizing spray gives your hair perfect beachy waves without being stiff, smells amazing, and doesn’t have a single scary ingredient. It even works on our team member Ciara’s stick-straight, zero-volume hair, which stubbornly resists most efforts to style it. We’re super excited about the Golden Waves Sea Salt Shimmer Spray, too, which is the exact same as the Mermaid Spray but with flecks of gold mica for a subtle, sunkissed shine. For day-to-day use, we love the Sea Shine shampoo and conditioner, which use sea mineral extracts, aloe vera, and shea butter to give you extra-moisturized, voluminous, clean hair.
