All of our wavy haired girls can attest that as hyped as we are for summer, it also brings with it a whole host of hair-related issues. Frizzy, undefined waves aren’t exactly the summer vibe we’re going for after all. So, to weatherproof your mane, we’ve put together our favourite wavy hair products.
From shampoo and conditioner to curl revivers and frizz-fighting creams, with these wavy hair must-haves it’s possible to enjoy the weather without having to stress about your hair. Wonderful waves are just a scroll away…
Must-have summer wavy hair products: Our top 5 to try
1. Nexxus Oil Infinite Shampoo and Conditioner
Use this for: Everyday manageability
Great hair always starts in the shower, so before you even think about adding any other wavy hair products, make sure you’re using a shampoo and conditioner that caters to your hair type. The Nexxus Oil Infinite Shampoo and Conditioner range is enriched with elastin protein, babassu and marula oil to cleanse and condition frizzy hair and leave it smooth and shiny.
2. TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray
Use this for: Creating beachy waves
The key is to work with your waves, not against them, so if your waves aren’t naturally as defined as you’d like try a sea salt spray like this TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray. Spritzing onto damp hair and scrunching in with your hands encourages the curl and gives the look a tousled, surfer-like texture (think Kate Moss vibes) that still looks natural.
3. TONI&GUY Wave Memorising Balm
Use this for: Reviving flat curls
Do you find that you start off the day with nice, full-bodied waves but that they always seem to fall flat by the afternoon?
Like memory foam but for your hair, the TONI&GUY Wave Memorising Balm is applied through towel-dried lengths and its wave recall technology actually memorises your curl pattern (yes, really). Whenever your hair starts to fall a little flat, you can just give them a quick scrunch and they’ll transform back to their former glory.
4. VO5 Frizz Free Cream
Use this for: On the go touch-ups
The problem with summer frizz is that you can’t ever really predict when your hair is going to play ball, so it’s good to have wavy hair products that you can just pop in your bag for when humidity strikes.
The VO5 Frizz Free Cream (which can be used on both damp and dry hair) is ideal for combating frizz and redefining waves, just squeeze a small amount into your hands, rub between your palms and use it to smooth through your lengths.
5. VO5 Volume Foam
Use this for: Creating natural volume
Love how mousse makes your hair look but hate how it feels? Lighter than a traditional mousse, the new VO5 Volume Foam has all the benefits of a regular mousse (hold, root lift, movement through the ends etc), but with a lighter, airier feel than some heavier alternatives. Use it before you blow dry for model-worthy waves that last.
