Holiday Hair Edit: Textured, Beach Waves
Beach inspired hair full of volume and texture with a matte, 'undone' finish has been my go-to everyday hair style throughout Summer. Styled with mousses, sea salt sprays and dry texture sprays, it's the ultimate 'effortlessly undone' looking hair style that requires minimal effort and time in the mornings. Now I'm in Croatia for over a month, I'm still using the same products just with a little sun protection and holiday hair twist. Being on the beach, in the sea or in and out of the pool every day definitely helps my hair look beachy but the final look is all down to the products I'm using to create this messy, textured and voluminous hair style.
TO PROTECT: Sachajuan In The Sun* / Acting like a suncream for your hair, this has been my beach and poolside buddy all holiday so far. It's a thick protective cream with ocean silk technology and a UV filter that blocks hair from becoming dry, straw like or fading colour. With a super lightweight texture, it doesn't weigh down hair or make hair greasy, it simply provides my hair with deliciously scented layer all over which keeps my locks hydrated and glossy looking post sun exposure.
TO TREAT, SMOOTH AND ADD SHINE: Moroccan Oil Treatment* / Treating and adding hydration to your hair post sun is just as important as protecting it before the sun and this luxuriously rich, yet light oil is perfect for doing just that. Absorbed instantly into damp hair, it leaves my hair feeling ultra silky and looking super shiny.
TO CREATE VOLUMINOUS, EFFORTLESS WAVES: Moroccan Oil Beach Wave Mousse* / This is the product that really gives my hair texture and a matte, cool, un-done look. It's a-bit of a hybrid product, providing more volume than your normal mousse and almost acting like a sea salt spray, it's the best product for giving actual 'I've just stepped off the beach' hair without making your hair sticky and dehydrated. I apply this on towel dried hair and leave to dry naturally.
FOR THE TOUSLED, MESSY LOOK: Sachajuan Ocean Mist* / Another of the hybrid hair products, this mix between hairspray and salt water styling spray from Sachajuan is my long standing favourite hair product. Not only is it my favourite shade of blue, it's the best salt spray I've used for adding real texture, hold and grip to my hair that actually creates tousled, undone waves that look super natural and beachy. I spritz about 4 sprays over my hair when damp, ruffle together and leave to dry for the ultimate 'beach babe' look.
TO ADD TEXTURE, LIFT AND HOLD: Moroccan Oil Dry Beach Texture Spray* / To finish it all off, I spray light mist of this argan-oil infused texture spray all over; in the roots, underneath, on top and the ends. Out of all the texture sprays and dry shampoos I've tried, this is the best one I've used for providing a textured, dry finish that keeps undone waves in place and just boosts volume all over for ultimate easy, holiday hair.
