Beachy hair- well then you probably care. For me, it takes some magic to get that “I just woke up like this” wavy hair that doesn’t look too tangled or limp. Or reeeeeally dirty. But mermaid waves still call my name! Keep reading to check out my top picks, how I use them, & where to get them. HINT- Pretty much on Amazon!
Normally I put an honorable mention near the end- but not this time! Mostly because I’ll be referencing it below a lot but also because…these kind of hair ties are the easiest way to twist my hair, let it set up, then release it without any marks or kinks!

“Inspired by the Galapagos Islands, our Enchanted Island Salt Spray offers sexy, tousled, wavy beach hair. Crafted with natural pink sea salt for texture and volume, this spray offers light, brushable hold and the lush, tropical fragrance combination of guayaba, hibiscus, & passion fruit.” – Rahua Amazon Enchanted Island Sea Salt Spray
Why I Love It: This smells really sweet & as it lingers in my hair it doesn’t smell like hairspray or product at all! I love that they source from the Amazon rain forest & also veer towards natural products. I think one of the mistakes people make with similar products is using WAY too much! You don’t need to use much, just scrunch into your hair softly. For extra definition, I’ll wrap my hair in a bun or mini buns using the hair ties I mentioned above (or see them here!) because it really gives me awesome volume!
“not just a natural bond builder. It is also a protein conditioner for all hair types. Its unique formula has certified organic quinoa protein, comfrey, aloe vera, and chamomile. Fixes fried hair, No more frizz, Prevents split ends, Improves strength, and rebuilds hair damaged by protein loss during chemical color or bleaching.”- artofcare QUINOAPLEX R3 Rapid Hair Renewal Formula Organic Bond Builder & Protein Conditioner
Why I Love It: With my colored hair- some hairsprays, salt sprays, or just my hair in general can feel weak. Then you add in more products or chlorine or heat…& hair gets pretty weak. & frazzled. & just not cute. Something like this that actually works like a detangler but also completely rebuilds the hair bonds organically is a timesaver! This works as well or better than some of the expensive ones I’ve tried!
“Highly volumizing dry shampoo that provides stability and texture to styled hair. Removes excessive oiliness. Leaves hair feeling fresh and clean. Suitable for all hair colors. Shake vigorously before use. Hold the nozzle about 30 cm from the hair and spray onto the roots. Brush through, or massage with the hands and style as required.”- Lowengrip Good to Go Dry Shampoo (Caramel & Cream)
Why I Love It: I am a dry shampoo fanatic- & this one smells DEEEEEEELISH! It smells like caramel & vanilla without being too overpowering. Like hair dessert? Yeah. I said that. Dry shampoo is PERFECT because wavy hair comes easiest when your hair has more grip- aka not on a wash day. Apply to roots as directed above & brush through for more volume, to soak up excess oils, & it blends in for all hair colors.
