I love the carefree, effortless look of beach wave hair … especially when the look is actually effortless to achieve! You know like that look that the you’re supposed to get after swimming at the beach and letting your hair air dry while you soak up the sun? Well unfortunately for me my hair usually has a mind of it’s own and although my hair is naturally wavy, it is also very frizzy so when I do leave it to air dry it tends to look less ‘Gisele Bundchen waves’ and more ‘I just got electrocuted and this is what it did to my hair’ waves! But since at times I can also be lazy … especially now in the summer when I would rather be out and about than stuck inside doing my hair, I am always on the lookout for a good product that will help achieve that ‘no fuss’ hair that actually looks good!
So recently I decided to try the V05 Give Me Texture Tousled Style Spray … I actually bought it on a whim and I wasn’t expecting much as I never really read anything about it and I’ve often tried products like this that don’t do much for my hair. I’m not quite sure why I bought it, all I know is that its bright pink bottle caught my eye and since it wasn’t expensive at all I thought I would give it a try. Thank goodness I did because now I am loving it!!
Here are a couple of pictures that I took when I was ‘out and about’ after styling my hair with it.
All I do to get this look is wash my hair, use my favourite frizz fighting products as I usually would, then spray the V05 Give Me Texture Tousled Spray all over my damp hair and scrunch, scrunch scrunch! That’s it! Then I’m out the door! (And if you have straight hair I have some tips for you at the bottom of this post.)
Here are some pictures that I took especially for this blog post
In the above picture my ends were still pretty wet so that’s why they look a bit stringy … but after they dried they looked like the rest of my hair.
Do you see why I like it so much?! No frizz and defined waves!
Another thing that I like about it, is that you can use it on dry hair too! This makes it perfect on second day hair that is looking flat and needs some extra ‘oomph’ to revive the waves.
There are only two things I would suggest caution on when using this product. The first is that you should try to not use it too often because it can be drying to your hair (not sure if it’s much worse than heat styling though). The second is that you should probably wash your hair the day after using it because if you leave it in your hair for a second day it might start getting flaky.
Bonus Tip for Straight Haired Girls (as promised!):
To get the beach wave look without heat curling your hair; dampen your hair and put it in several braids the night before you want it styled and sleep with it like that. The number of braids you put in your hair depends on how much hair you have. Most people suggest three braids but I would suggest at least four or five with a couple of braids on the top layers of your hair and a couple of braids on the bottom layers of your hair. This will help to keep your waves from having a uniform look. Then in the morning after you undo your braids, spray this spray all over your hair and scrunch, scrunch, scrunch! That should do the trick since this spray can be used on dry hair. (I’ve used it on my hair when it was dry and it works great!)
