A Cheat’s Guide to Beach Waves

Now Summer’s here, a majority of us have considered working that long-haired beach wave look whilst appearing effortless.

So sit back and stun away as when it comes to hair, the messier the better!

It’s best to apply gels, serums and cream type textures to wet hair, maximizing results to allow the product to mould into the hair before drying; in this case, it’s important to start with a focus on volume to the mane providing height to the wave.

*Remember to scrunch those roots with your recommended product and blow-dry hanging your head upside down for a bigger and better finish.

The following products aren’t needed together but are a good selection to get you on the road to big waves and see what product works best for you – a Hair Density Serum, Mega-Curl Enhancer, Leave-in Defining Cream and an Anti-Frizz Smooth Curling Cream:

  1. Grow Gorgeous Hair Density Serum Intense

    Grow Gorgeous Hair Density Serum Intense

    Grow Gorgeous’ best seller is the Hair Density Serum – this is a valuable hair product that contributes towards getting the beach wave look as the serum helps thicken the hair.

    The serum is packed with glycine and zinc to improve hair length for a fuller look, whilst the Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3 and Clover Flower Extract Active Complex have been proven to increase hair density by 13% within four months. Another ingredient, Bio-Active Pea Sprout, works much quicker by improving hair growth within the first 2 weeks of use.

    Without getting too technical, the other key ingredient is hyaluronic acid which penetrates the scalp and spurs on hydration so the hair will be left feeling volumized and bouncy. Not to mention another main unique selling point of the product – this Hair Serum promotes the growth of 13,000 extra hairs! That’s right; a perfect addition to your fierce beach waves.

    Now you’ve got the volume from Grow Gorgeous, here’s the curl from Philip B.

    This is possibly the most straightforward of methods as you simply need to run this product through damp hair and leave to air dry. The amino acids and botanical extracts help to boost color retention and the Mega-Curl Enhancer also releases moisture into the hair for supple definition.

    Aside from the function of the product, the scent has been described as “sweet-woody” as it exudes Pure Oud essence.

    The Mega-Curl Enhancer is also suitable for all hair types – whether you have curly or straight hair – it should keep everyone pleased.

    Another great product for enhancing curls – this crème is powerful as all you need to do is leave it in damp hair and it basically does the job for you.

    Make sure to finger comb from the scalp to deeply massage the product in – you don’t want it escaping anywhere!

    How to use: Apply evenly from the root to tip of the hair. The mollis leaf and tomato ferments are the secret ingredients which will smooth and prevent hair from frizzing – a massive issue for a majority of the population on a daily basis.

    To finalise the beach look, the hydration to the hair will come through the avocado oil which helps hair to keep its natural moisture and avoids damage to the strands.
