Updated: Jul 9, 2023

Nothing embodies carefree summer vibes quite like beachy hair. Whether you've just returned from a day at the beach or want to recreate those relaxed, sun-kissed waves, beachy hair is the epitome of effortless beauty. In this blog post, we will dive into the secrets of achieving those tousled, texturized locks that will make you feel like a Merperson fresh out of the ocean.

 
 

1. Embrace the Texture:

Beachy hair is all about natural texture and movement. Embrace your hair's natural waves, curls, or even straightness, and work with what you have. Avoid using excessive heat styling tools like flat irons or curling wands. Instead, opt for techniques that enhance your hair's natural texture, such as braiding, twisting, or scrunching.

2. Salt Sprays for the Win:

One of the key products for achieving beachy hair is a salt spray. This magical sprays mimics the effects of ocean water, adding texture, volume, and a slightly tousled look to your locks. Spray the product onto damp or dry hair, scrunch it gently with your hands, and let it air dry for effortless, beach-inspired waves. Try out Swirl sea salt spray- it's sulfate free so it won't fade your color. Alternatively, you can create your own DIY salt spray by mixing sea salt, water, and a few drops of your favorite essential oil.

3. Perfect the Art of the Braid:

Braids are not only a stylish way to keep your hair off your face on a hot summer day but also a fantastic technique for achieving beachy waves. Before going to bed, braid your hair loosely or create multiple small braids throughout your head. In the morning, unravel the braids and finger comb your hair to create beautiful, natural-looking waves. For extra definition, you can spritz some texturizing spray or dry shampoo.

4. Embrace the Power of Sea Minerals:

Another fantastic product to add to your beachy hair routine is a sea mineral spray. These sprays are infused with minerals and vitamins found in the sea, which provide nourishment and give your hair that coveted beachy texture. They can be used on damp or dry hair, and a quick spritz and scrunch will instantly give you that windswept look.

5. Don't Forget the Dry Shampoo:

Dry shampoo is an absolute must-have for achieving beachy hair. Not only does it refresh your hair between washes, but it also adds volume and texture. Apply dry shampoo to your roots and massage it into your scalp to absorb excess oil and add lift. This will give your hair that effortlessly chic, just-off-the-beach appearance.

6. Finish with a Texturizing Pomade:

To add the finishing touches to your beachy hair, consider using a texturizing pomade. This product will help define your waves, add shine, and provide a light hold without making your hair feel heavy or crunchy. Work a small amount of pomade through your hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends, for that effortless, lived-in look.

With the tips and techniques mentioned above, you can easily achieve the coveted beachy hair look. Embrace the natural texture of your hair, experiment with salt sprays, braid your hair, and add products that mimic the effects of the ocean. Remember, the key to beachy hair is to keep it effortless and tousled, as if you've just spent a glorious day by the seaside. So, unleash your inner merperson, and let your hair reflect the carefree, beach-loving spirit within you.
