Introduction - Creating Beachy Waves With Sea Salt Spray Haircare Products

Most people either have some natural wave in their hair or they wish they did.  Waves which look like they developed naturally after a day spent at the beach frolicking in the salt spray are always in high demand.

Why?  No two beachy wave hairstyles ever look the same and there's no right or wrong ways to create them.

Luckily creating beachy waves with sea salt spray haircare products can create the desired texture for many different hair types and natural textures.

Methods For Creating Beachy Waves

Beachy waves as highlighted by Jennifer Aniston or recently showcased on ABC's Rachel Taylor (Charlie's Angels, 666) can be created in the following ways:

1.  Utilizing a traditional salt spray styling product keeping in mind that less is always more.

2.  With a DIY salt product (8 ounces of  water in a spray bottle mixed with 2-4 teaspoons of salt and 1-2 drops of moisturizing oils such as jojoba, Moroccan, Argan or similar).

5.  When set on traditional waves, pin curls or related rollers {{asin=B000Q7CVDQ,text=Beach Wave Rollers}} and deconstructed into loose waves with fingers and/or a brush.

Not All Salt Spray Products Are Created Equally

Not all salt spray products are created equally and work differently depending upon the hair type, texture, condition and length.  People with thin or fine hair may have better luck utilizing salt sprays for creating beachy hair then those with thick hair.

The best way to apply salt spray products are to spray them into the palms of your hands and then rake or scrunch through towel blotted wet strands.  Be sure to distribute any salt spray products from the roots to the ends.  Start slowly.

When it comes to salt sprays, less is always more since it can sometimes be drying if not combined with leave-in conditioners or a drop or two of moisturizing oils (Moroccan, Argan, jojoba, coconut or similar).

Best Styling Methods After Utilizing Salt Spray Products

After hair has been completely dressed with the desired salt spray product you have the option to diffuse dry hair, let it air dry or add a series of pin curls, rag rollers or braids to amp up the finished beachy waves appearance.

When creating beachy waves, if the proper amount of salt spray is applied and combined with the best air or heat drying, beachy waves may last well past second-day hair by utilizing dry shampoo products to revive the hairstyle.

In some cases you can apply the dry shampoo product to hair, finger rake it and finish with a blast of salt spray.

Avoid Drying Out Hair When Creating Beachy Waves With Salt Spray Hair Care Products

When applied properly, salt sprays will create beachy waves for most hair types and textures from thin and straight to thick and naturally wavy.  Salt sprays can also add target volume throughout the top of the hair and at the crown.  When combined with conditioners or oils it will prevent the formation of any frizz.

Salt sprays when used without companion oils or moisturizing creams can be very drying.  As a result, it's important to avoid overuse of the salt sprays.  It should never be used on a daily basis except for spot styling.

If you do wish to use the salt sprays on a daily basis be sure to combine it with super moisturizing rinse-out or leave-in conditioners.

Consider using a hydrating cleanser or opt for low-poo, no-poo or a diluted formulation (DS).  Remember to finish beachy waves with a tiny bit of moisturizing serum.
