Any Girl who spends a day at the beach is pretty sure what I am talking about when I say “the perfect beach hair”. Tussled and sexy, the look is perfect for summer days and nights. Celebrities always keep this style in fashion whether they are on the go and on the red carpet. Why shouldn’t mommies keep this in their bag of tricks as well? This has been the perfect hair do for all length hair for as long as ladies have been hitting the beach. Since it doesn’t take a long time to execute, it is perfect for the wife and mom on the go. The beauty is in the simplicity.
If cost is an important factor for you and you are feeling fanciful, it is relatively simple to make a spray from scratch that re-creates the effect of a “just from the beach” hair-do. All you will need is a travel spray bottle, ½ cup of water and 1 tablespoon of sea salt. If you want to be done, you can stop here. Voila! If you so choose, from this simple mixture, you can add jasmine oil or coconut oil which will add some fragrance. Remember: a drop of oil will go a long way and you don’t want to cancel out the effects of the mixture. In addition, a dollup of your favorite gel can provide a little extra hold in this mixture as well. Many options to achieve the beachin’ goal.
For optimal effect, add to damp hair and scrunch with the mixture until you can feel your hair starting to take to the texture/ dry.
If time is of the essence for you, there are products on the market that make it even easier by just spraying damp hair and using your hands to shape the tousled waves, from roots to ends, creating an at the beach look. Heading out to work or on the town? Let your hair air dry with your windows rolled down to add volume and save time. Ranging from as little as $5.00 to upwards of $30.00, there is a product available for every change purse and for every woman.
