Like many other women who like low-maintenance summer hairstyles, one of my most go-to ways to wear my hair this season is in beachy waves. The carefree style is easy to achieve, even if you’re not anywhere near the ocean.
As someone with pretty thick and dry hair, I actually tend to stay away from sea salt products (what most people rely on for this look) since most of them do little more than dry my hair out. So I’ve had to come up with my own trick to get beachy waves that are soft and moisturized while still textured. It’s really the easiest thing ever, and all the products you need can be picked up at your local Walgreens on the cheap.
What You need:
- TRESemme Moisture Rich Shampoo
- TRESemme Moisture Rich Conditioner
- Nexxus Comb Thru Touchable Hold Finishing Mist
- Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo
Wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. The TRESemme Moisture Rich Shampoo & Conditioner works really well with my naturally textured hair to give me some intense hydration without weighing it down. My hair is left soft and touchable, but easy to style.
Next, divide your hair into sections and start braiding them from root to tip. The looser the braid, the more quickly it will dry and more natural the waves will look. Let your hair air dry while in the braids. If you need to style quicker, you can assist with a hair dryer.
Take the braids out, and finger comb through your hair. Use a hairspray like the Nexxus Comb Thru Touchable Hold Finishing Mist which adds texture and hold without making your hair feel or look stiff. As I spray it, I scrunch the hair in my fists to give it a little more volume and shape after having combed it through.
Later in the week, revive the style with a lightweight dry shampoo like the Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo. It goes on invisible, even on my dark hair, and absorbs oil at the roots so you can extend your hairstyle an extra day or two past its prime. It’s a lifesaver during summer, when my hair gets limp with sweat.
This hairstyle is so easy to do on so many different hair types, and is fitting for the season ahead. Oh, and if you grab the products you need at Walgreens lbx.la/R9tE , you can get an extra 3,000 points when you buy any three of participating TRESemme, Dove, Nexxus, or Suave products with your card*.
