Beachy Waves

Awh, it's kinda rainy today. But we won't let that ruin our miss-lovely-ness! Today I am going to show y'all how to get beachy waves. Of course I would know because I was just in Hawii! Everytime we went swimming in the ocean my hair would get curly. Why?  The saltwater of course! My hair got super curly and wavy and I loved it! Even if you already have curly hair, you could try this out to give it a more wavy feel. You can do this in 9 really easy steps. Let's get started!

You will need:
  • The hair products you use after you use after you take a shower
  • water about 1/2 a cup
  • 2 tsp. salt (depends)
  • hair thing (Why do people call them "hair elastics"?!)

Step 1:

You are gonna want to take a shower the morning before you want your hair curly. So say I want my hair curly on Monday, I would take my shower on Sunday morning. Anyways, take a shower, shampoo and condition you hair (duh) and when you get out, brush your hair through.

Step 2:

Then evenly spread out an anti-frizz cream through your hair. This will help because drying your hair without a dryer and making your hair curly can cause your hair to frizz up. I use Aussie anti-frizz cream.

Step 3:

Next add whatever you usually add to your hair after you get out of the shower. I use "It's a 10 miracle leave-in product" it does everything! I love this stuff you should try it out.

And then I spray on a little bit of shine spray that also nourishes, seals and protects the hair. This is "Fructis Triple Nutrition Nutrient Spray".

And remember this is just what I use. Do your normal routine.

Step 4:

Once you have done your routine, head down stairs to make your salt water. And it's okay if your hair starts to dry while you are making the salt water. First, well get a glass of water! I used half a cup but you are not going to put that much salt water on your hair!! You can just keep the rest in the fridge and use it another time.

Step 5:

Then add about 2 teaspoons of salt. You can add more or less depending on how many curls you want. 

Step 6:
Then stir, stir, stir!

Step 7:

It would be much better if you pour it in an empty spray bottle, but I didn't at the time so I just dipped my hand in and scrunched it in my hair.

Step 8: 

Put your hair in a bun! It's that easy!

Step 9:

Since it's going to take a while for the hair out side the bun and especially the hair inside the bun to dry, you are going to leave it in all day. So just relax and do what you do! You could watch TV... (I would suggest the food channel haha)

Or you could sleep...

Or you could work on your essay! Hahaha  

Now what makes you think I don't want to do my essay? :P

Step 10: 

When you go to sleep take out your bun, if your hair isn't dry yet thats okay. Just take your hair out, don't brush it through and sleep. In the morning you should have soft beachy-like waves! This is what I got a couple days ago when I did it. I will post a picture tomorrow morning of what it looked like this time. 

It doesn't show up well, sorry! I will just post the picture tomorrow. Thanks for reading you guys! Comment below what your trick is to wavy hair. 

You might want to take a shower that night because well, when you come back from the beach don't you take a shower? You don't want to leave salt water in your hair for too long. So, it would be a good idea to do that.
