No Heat Beach Wave Hair Tutorial!

Well hello there!

I'd like to make a quick apology for not posting things properly and such, I've barely even been home for the last 3 days. If I've been home it's to sleep. Starting tomorrow, posts will be back on schedule of posting around noon every day!

On with the post!

I'm a sucker for sprays that make my naturally undefined thick wavy hair look presentable. I've had a good solid relationship with Marc Anthony's Strictly Curls Curl Booster for about 3 or 4 years, but I have had some affairs. I feel like you never appreciate a product until you test out other's which don't measure up. I've tried making my own sea salt spray, which would have been nice, had it lasted longer than 3 minutes.

But I may have found something which makes this relationship polygamous. I'm going to stop referring to this hair product usage as a relationship because it just got creepy. Marc Anthony doesn't contain any sea salt, which makes it less "beachy" to me, and it also can be crunchy if it's applied wrong.

This is where my new find comes in. This a newer product, as it says new on the bottle, but it's by Garnier Fructis Style. It's called the "De-Constructed Beach Chic Texturizing Spray." This smells like heaven (black fig) and claims to make "loose, textured beach waves"; exactly what I'm looking for!

You can spray this directly into damp or dry hair and air dry or blow dry. Buuuuuut that was too easy for me! So I decided to follow the other instructions, for overnight hair! Here's what I did to get my beachy waves:

These are all of the items I used.

 I washed my hair and towel dried it.

I brushed my hair and parted it in the middle, but you should part it where you normally part your hair.

I put some of this Hair Chemist Macadamia Oil Hair Serum in my hair, just to make it soft.

This amount works perfect on my collarbone length hair.

This is what it looks like once I've worked it through my hair.

Now comes time for the spray. The name is above or if you can read it below.

These are the directions, as stated above.

I sprayed it evenly in my hair, as directed to.

I scrunched my hair as told. I start with my ends in my hand and then squeeze my hair up toward my scalp.

This was visibly more wavy than my other spray.

Now time for the twisting. I divided my hair into 4 sections, as that's all the scrunchies I had.

Then I twisted my hair so much that it started twisting itself into this little Princess Leia buns.

I put a scrunchie around each bun. I chose scrunchies because they don't kink your hair, but you can use normal elastics.

As I said, I did my hair in 4 sections. 2 in the front, 2 in the back.

While wearing my Miley shirt, I kind of transformed myself into her.

I then went to sleep. It was kind of difficult to lay comfortably with these nubs in my hair. I suggest taking an Advil before bed so you don't wake up with a headache.

I kind of expected my hair not to be totally dry when I woke up. If your hair is dry, that's fantastic. If not, I let mine air dry, while spraying a bit more spray in it so it did look just as wavy as the other bits.

You can also wrap your hair around a very low heat set curling iron to make it look less uniform and more disheveled.

Overall, I was really pleased with how this spray worked. I could tell once I had scrunched that it was going to work, but I was definitely surprised by the actual product. Marc Anthony's spray nozzle is more of a jet setting than a mist, which I think really set this one apart from that one.

Anyway, I hope you like this tutorial! Send me pictures if you did this!
