How To Get Beachy Waves With No Heat

Mermaids rejoice! We can finally look and feel the part without the split ends that usually come with hair styling. This summer while we stroll to the beach, we can arrive with beachy hair that looks shiny, feels silky and will give Ariel a run for her money. This time we are ditching the heat by leaving the hot tools in the bathroom and using easily accessible items for our desired result. Try these techniques the night before for a set-in style that adds health and body to your already fabulous hair.

For most of us, we get that weird wrinkle in our hair when we just tie it up in a ponytail. Well, the same theory applies to braids! Pulling hair into tight braids creates a soft wave all over and requires not much more than a rubber band and hands!

STEP 1: Apply moisturizer. For those with fine hair, dampen with a bit of water. For full hair types, use a pea sized amount of your favorite oil – we suggest almond or coconut. For thick, curly hair, use shea butter, olive oil or any leave-in hair treatment. This is optional and only a small amount is needed, but the lubricant boosts the hair’s shine and smoothness.

STEP 2: Determine how tight you want your waves. For hair that has a crimped effect, you’ll want a lot of small braids, at least 6 on each side of the head. For larger, looser waves, part down the center and create two French braids for waves that start at the root, or two on each side of the head for abundant waves that are loose and beachy.

STEP 3: Braid, secure with an elastic, and then cover the hair before bed. Use a silk bonnet, scarf or an old cotton t-shirt if necessary. This step isn’t mandatory but it prevents the hair from getting frizzy overnight. If you’re doing this step on the same day, don’t worry about covering the hair. Instead, spend 10-15 minutes out in the sun and use the natural heat to set the style in place.

STEP 4: Unweave the braids carefully as not to disrupt the curl. If desired, apply setting spray, hair accessories or add in another braid for style. It’s as simple as that!
