Now that summer is here, stylist Trish wanted to give us some tips on how to keep that gorgeous wave that most of us have but can very seldom keep once hair dries.
‘The main way to do this is all on prepping your hair right after shampooing. First things first, you will need to use a very gentle hydrating leave-in conditioner, one of my favorites is the It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-In.
For the best results to keep your texture, spray into hair and scrunch to work it in. The next product you will need is a light pomade; these usually come in a round container, my favorite is the Sebastian Molding Mud. Although products like these are normally associated with styling short hair into a spiky look, using it on longer wavy hair will help retain hair memory and they will never be crunchy. This product is applied by rubbing a half-dime-sized amount into your hands and scrunching into the middle to
ends of your hair. For added volume you can scrunch some more into the area of your hair closest to your scalp. The very last thing to do is to let it air dry, using a blow dryer will only undo the prep and cause it to go limp. When your hair dries, you should have beautiful beachy waves, if you want to smooth out some of the fly-aways, you can always finish with hair serum such as Moroccan oil, Paul Mitchel Super Skinny or anything along those lines. Just make sure to work into your hands before applying to hair to prevent hair from appearing greasy!’
