If you’ve ever tried to comb through your hair after spending a long day at the beach, you know that the struggle is real. Combing through strands that have been soaked in salt water and then dried in the sun can be challenging to say the least. Perhaps that’s why the undone summer braid has become the quintessential summer hairstyle.
The summer braid is effortless and easy and manages to give off a detail-oriented and intentional impression without taking up too much of your time or energy. After hours in the sun, it’s hard to imagine anyone would have the energy to sit and comb through their salty windblown strands. The summer braid is the ideal style for this scenario because it looks ‘done,’ but really just makes good use of your sea salt-filled air-dried hair.
What if you could recreate that texture at a moment’s notice?
Step Up Your Summer Braid Game
The secret to the perfectly imperfect summer braid comes from your favorite post-beach style. Easy texture, salty strands and a quick braiding technique that doesn’t require anything more than your own two hands and your tinted car window as your mirror. Sounds ideal, right? But what about those summer days when you’re stuck in the office or don’t have the ocean outside your window?
Enter: Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. This narrow bottle is small enough to sit comfortably in your medicine cabinet and won’t take up too much space in your work bag. This spray is infused with a carefully chosen blend of rich minerals from the sea that will give your strands that coveted body without sucking the moisture out of them. Simply spritz this spray on damp strands, let them air dry and bask in the all-over body and loose textured look you’re left with.
