Going into the summer months, there’s nothing more alluring than that just out of bed, hardly tried, beach wave look. But, let’s face it, hair like that takes a little more preparation than the vibe it’s giving off. So, unless you are one of the few genetically blessed, here’s a few products that will cut the wavy hair effort in half. Below are the 5 best hair products for beachy waves that’ll give you those gorgeous and effortless mermaid hair vibes!
Bumble and Bumble Surf Foam Wash Shampoo & Conditioner
If you want that beautifully tousled look, why not start at the foundation? Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Foam Wash is perfect for straight to wavy hair types who are looking for that full bodied texture, with a little bit of volume. The ocean breeze scent is just a plus!
Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray
This salt spray texturizer uses dead sea salt and sea kelp extract to create soft waves with a slightly gloss finish. The sea kelp makes it perfect for coarse or dry hair. Spray some on and let it air dry, or use it to roughen up the texture of your curls.
Tarte Mermaid Waves Salt Spray
I mean, it’s called Mermaid Waves, so it’s only fair that it be on this list. This product is perfect to use for scrunching wet hair, or to reactivate waves with dry hair. Also, this is a vegan product, which is perfect for all my activists out there!
Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray
The Morroccanoil Dry Texture Spray works on straight, wavy, and curly hair. It uses an argan oil-infused texture spray to create that wavy look, but still keeps your hair soft and touchable. This is perfect for those clean freak girls who love the beachy look without the gritty feel!
Verb Sea Texture Cream is perfect for those who prefer to work product through their hair, as opposed to spraying it on. This product will amplify your current waves, or you can use it on straight hair to create individual wavy pieces, all while giving you some great volume. This product is also vegan and gluten free!
