First things first. My hair is SO LONG right now. I’m getting it cut tomorrow, and couldn’t be more excited. *cue fanfare*
Since it’s summer, I’m giving the good ol’ curling iron a rest, and enhancing my natural waves, which requires a LOT less effort. Hallelujah. Here’s how you can do it in 5 easy steps.
Products used – Ion Summer Shampoo, Ion Summer Deep Conditioning Treatment, Ion Spray Gel for Wave/Curly Hair, and Ion Texturizing Sea Spray. Also, a hair dryer with a diffuser attachment. (All from Sally Beauty.)
1. Wash and towel dry your hair, squeezing any extra moisture out of your hair. Try not to rub the hair – just gently squeeze it.
2. Apply Ion Spray Gel all over your hair.
3. Give it a good scrunch.
4. If you have the time, let your waves air dry, but if you are pressed for time, use a hair dryer with a diffuser attachment to keep hair frizz at bay.
5. After your waves are dry, spray Ion Texturizing Sea Spray to create definition and texture throughout for a true beachy look. I like to twist a few small sections of hair, however, the key is not to fuss with your hair too much – the more fuss, the more frizz. Seriously, that should be a t-shirt slogan. More fuss, more frizz.
Voilá! Go forth into the summer months like a beachy, mermaid goddess.
