I love when my hair has a messy, undone look. I basically want it to look like I just woke up from a nap on the beach. These are the products I love to mix and match to add texture, wave, and volume for an effortless finish.
IGK Down & Out Dirty Spray ($35)
Best Used For: A Messy Look
You know when you have second-day hair and it looks amazing even though you know you should probably wash it soon? Well, this product gives you the same volume and texture as having dirty hair – even if you just got out of the shower. Coconut oil nourishes the hair and gives it slight separation, while an ingredient called zeolite helps with texture. This is the perfect product for a sexy, lived-in look. This spray is also amazing to add texture if you are styling your hair in braids or a bun.
Verb Sea Texture Cream ($18)
Best Used For: Smooth Waves
This texture cream by Verb does an amazing job at making my waves look smooth, not frizzy. I apply it to damp hair near the front pieces where I get a lot of flyaways. It helps to give some hold to the waves around my face. It also adds a little bit of texture, which makes my waves look more beachy and undone. Be careful not to use too much or it will make your hair appear greasy.
IGK Cleansing Walnut Scrub ($43)
Best Used For: Dry Scalp
This one technically isn’t about wavy hair, but I thought I would throw it on the list anyway because I love it so much. This sugar scrub smells amazing and gently exfoliates your scalp. It is perfect for cold winters when dry skin can lead to dandruff. It contains apple cider vinegar, peppermint oil, walnut shell powder, and silica, which all help to rebalance and purify the scalp. If you feel like the winter has left you with a dry skin, I would highly recommend this product.
OUAI Wave Spray ($32)
Best Used For: Enhancing Waves
If you want to enhance the natural waves in your hair, this product is your best friend. You simply spray it around the ends of damp hair and scrunch it upwards using your hands. Without this product, my hair usually dries really flat and lifeless. I like this spray because it is light hold. Even though it enhances waves, it doesn’t make it feel crunchy or sticky. It has a strong floral scent that is almost like perfume. I personally love it, but if you are sensitive to fragrance be cautious.
