I have very thick wavy/curly hair that tends to get very frizzy. I have spent my entire life working to make it look good. If I just let it dry with no product it would be a huge frizzy mess that would make me look like a homeless person!! Going blonde only made the problem worse. For years I spent forever blow drying and straightening my hair. It was a nightmare!! I took forever because I would have to blow-dry for half an hour or more just to get it dry. Then I would have to go back and flat iron in tiny sections. I always needed to get it cut because it was constantly damaged! I lived in bob purgatory. I wanted to grow it longer, but my ends were too gross. I got over it!
I decided to just work with my natural texture so I could get out of the bathroom and on with my life! I’ve tried so many products, some worked, some didn’t. Since I stopped straightening, my hair is healthier, longer and I am happier. I have more time to do other things!! I really wanted to get that beachy wavy look.
I have tried a bunch of sea salt wave sprays to get that beachy texture, but they made my hair look dry and frizzy. Curl creams look nice, but not the messy, sexy wavy look I prefer. Just the other day, I tried Paul Mitchell ultimate wave, it’s a cream gel with just enough hold. I put a quarter size amount in my hand and scrunch it into my hair, that’s it!! I let it air dry, which for me takes a few hours, and it looked great!! Not frizzy at all! Back from the beach messy waves.The next day, I didn’t want to leave the house with wet hair so I blow-dryed with a diffuser for just a few minutes. Whalla! Still great.
This is my favorite hair product ever!! If it’s beachy waves you want, try this product
Because of the amount of hold, I think it might work well for straighter hair too. You may need to use less than me if your hair is not as thick. If you have straight hair, I would recommend blow-drying with a diffuser to encourage the wave.
Let me know what you think of it.
