How To Get Drop-Dead Gorgeous Beachy Waves With A DIY Sea Salt Spray
I have a confession. I can spend hours styling my hair. I’ve fruitlessly attempted way too many youtube tutorials on how to achieve perfectly wavy hair. One particular video convinced me that I would have a luminous waterfall of effortlessly, cascading wavy hair by tightly braiding my wet hair and sleeping in it overnight. Sigh.
When I woke up, my hair was a rat’s nest of horrifying ringlets. I looked like Shirley Temple on drugs. (I still have nightmares.) I had to brush my hair out for an hour and wash it twice to get out all the pigtail curls. Shudders.
I’ve learned quite a bit about my hair since this disturbing night. And an easy and effective way to create gorgeous, beachy waves is by getting in the water! Salt water, that is. But I actually am terrified of the ocean. I’ve binge-watched too many Shark Week episodes. So saltwater pools are my SOS. Before diving in, I slather leave-in conditioner on my wet hair. (Imagine Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala.)
And I go for a jaunty swim in a luxurious, saltwater pool. And voila! My dry hair looks gently windspent and textured. I feel like a 1950’s movie star relaxing in her Mediterranean getaway. Of course, I can’t afford to swim in expensive, resort saltwater pools enough for this to be a practical DIY hack. I wish!
