I believe that we can all agree that it's quite annoying to style your hair using heating devices during summer. With all the heat in the air, using more warmth from iron straighteners and curlers to complete your look can actually be a real torture. Plus, with all the humidity in the air, well, what’s the point? You can consider yourself very lucky if you succeed to maintain the hairstyle you desired for a couple of hours, without the moisture ruining its texture. Instead, why not use the simple beauty tricks without much hassle?
The beachy waves hairstyle is generally adored look that is loved even among the red carpet celebrities. Even though the curling wand may help you achieve the desired curls within just 10 minutes, during hot summer days there’s a less-troubling option, equally fast. Rather than combating the humid conditions, try collaborating with them by supporting the natural wave of the hair.
Step 1: First of all, the secret to obtaining the look as you just arrived from the beach is in the sea salt spray. It’s an easy “DIY” spray that can easily and in no time be prepared at home.
What you need:
- 1 glass of hot water
- 1 spoon of sea salt
- 2 spoons of balm rinse (or hair gel)
- 1 spoon of coconut oil
Pour the warm water in a plastic bottle and add all the ingredients except the balm rinse (hair gel). Close the bottle and shake well until the ingredients are integrated. After that add the balsam or hair gel and shake it well again. Before you start using it, let the mixture cool down well.
Sea salt dries the hair, so don’t use this spray too often. The best option is to combine it with some argan oil.
When you have the sea salt spray prepared, the rest is easy (as well). Just follow these simple instructions:
Step 2: Dampen the hair with the spray.
Step 3: Divide your hair into 4 sections (even better if they’re not sectioned perfectly to avoid part lines) and tie them up.
Step 4: Spray lightly each section with the sea salt spray again.
Step 5: Twist the hair in the direction you want the waves to be and keep doing it until they start to coil on their own.
Step 6: Keep coiling them until you have a tight bun and use the hairpins to keep them in place.
Step 7: Dry your hair with the blow-dryer (if you want to completely avoid using heating devices, you can also leave the hair in buns overnight). The longer you blow the hair, the tighter the waves will be.
Step 8: Undo the hairpins and the buns.
Step 9: Use your fingers to separate the curls and scrunch them up a bit to boost the volume.
Step 10: Lightly spray it over with a hair spray to prevent the decrease and you’re good to go!
