Greetings from the beach! No internet yesterday equals no blog yesterday... BUT we have internet today! Finally! One storm knocks everything out in this tiny little town. But I love it anyways and just took it as an excuse to relax all day and lay in the sun. It was an amazing beach day.
Sometimes the hardest part about the beach is the craziness that is your hair. My hair is naturally curly...I'm talking CURLY. And without the beach and salt water, it can be a disaster if not straightened. But I've found some great beach hair products that compliment the salt water impeccably and give me great beach waves.
I actually use most of these products together after getting in the ocean for the best waves. Once my hair is wet (if you don't want to get in the ocean, buy a spray bottle and fill it with the ocean's salt water and then spray your hair so it's damp), I spray in the Bumble to Bumble Surf Spray, the Lightening Spray, and the Prep and Protect. Let it air dry. Once it's dry, scrunch in a little bit of the Frizz-ease to keep it from frizzing, and you're good to go!
I use the lemon with the Lightening spray together a lot. When the bottle of lightener gets a little bit lower, I'll add some lemon juice to it to make it last longer. You can also use the lemon by itself to lighten just a bit. My hair is naturally a darker blonde, but I love when it gets a little natural highlight. So I use quite a bit of lemon and the lightening spray when in the sun.
Here's what my hair looked like with the products (and even with a good night's sleep!)
So enjoy the sun and sand without sacrificing your hair this summer!
