The Secret to Beachy Waves and Curls

The secret to beachy waves is volume… And lots of it. Start your style with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner like Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo and Dove Oxygen Moisture Conditioner. The duo helps up hair 95 percent while gently cleaning your strands and making them shiny-looking and healthy.

When hair is damp, apply a volumizing mousse, like Nexxus Exxpand + Volumizing Whip. This super lightweight mousse works with every hair type by creating controlled volume. It’s like the best beach hair products in a jar. After applying the mousse, bend down, then flip your hair over, so that it should be hanging loose and directed towards the floor. Then, gently take your locks and scrunch them in your hands. Slowly turn your head to the right and left, scrunching strands as you go. Stand up and flip your hair back. Remember the key to this look is volume, to create beachy waves and curls, so the next step is to perhaps spritz root lift spray on the roots of your hair. Grab Catwalk by TIGI Root Boost Spray (think of it as the secret to best beach hair products that mimic the volumizing strength of a tropical breeze), then spray at the roots of your hair, all over your head. Next, blow-dry hair with a diffuser attachment until almost dry. Then use Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray all over your hair, and then tweak the curls and waves into place with your fingers.

To lock in your beachy waves and curls in place all day long, use TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1. This anti-frizz hairspray is a flexible natural hold spray that like the best beach waves products, loves beachy styles and gently keeps your style on point, while letting your tousled tresses move.
