When it comes to my hair, I've always strived for a natural look. I used to dye my hair on a regular basis and due to that it's so badly damaged. From now on, I try to use as little heat as possible on my hair, if that be straighteners or a hairdryer.
I'm always after the natural wavy beach hair look on a day to day basis and even more so in the heat.
As I crave beach hair, living in the centre of Manchester has limited me from getting it, therefore I have to recreate it myself. Here are the few products from BeautySpin that are here to help me...
InvisiBobble Hair Ring
I can honestly say that these things have changed my hair life. I've seen them around for a while now, but I've never tried them, but I totally wish that I had sooner. They're easy to put in, holds your hair firmly in place and they don't pull or break your hair when trying to take it out.
I always get headaches when I sleep with a hair bobble in, but in this heat, I can't sleep without one. The InvisiBobble doesn't hurt and it doesn't cause me headaches either. I don't straighten my hair very often, but even when it's left naturally a hair bobble can leave a huge annoying, kink. However with these, they don't even leave a mark. Perfect.
L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Wild Stylers Gel
For the tousled effect, this product is perfect. When my hair is damp, I like to add a small amount to my hair and scrunch it upwards to create slight waves. This product only works well if you have slight natural waves already as the products clings to them and enhances your curls
I adore this product, it enhances your waves, but doesn't make them feel crunchy. There's nothing I dislike more than a product that leaves your hair feeling hard and sticky. That can sometimes be the problem with gels and a reason why I've moved away from them in past, however, this one styles and secures, but you can still run your fingers through your hair at the end.
L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Wild Stylers Next Day Hair
Now this product is all about the texture.
After using the gel, I spray this all over my hair to create texture and dishevelled effect, from the roots to the lengths of my hair. This definitely helps create the beach hair that I like, especially in the summer. It holds everything in place and-and gives your hair an instant texture and volume boost.
I personally like my hair better a day after it has been washed and this product makes your hair feel like that. It doesn't feel limp and 'too' newly washed, but gives it a matte 'hasn't been washed for a few days' kind of feel.
I understand that might not be the most glamorous way to describe it, but we'll just have to go with it okay.
What are your favourite hair styling products? Do you like the beach hair look?
