My Favorite Products for Loose Waves


After I posted this makeup tutorial, I received quite a few questions about my new haircut and how I style it. Despite how frizzy and crazy my hair can get, it's actually quite easy to style with the right products, and I very rarely use a blow dryer or curling iron. For this shoot, I let it air dry and just used a curling iron on my bangs and a few unruly pieces in the front.

A hair product I've really loved this year even before I cut my hair is a texturizing beach spray. I highly recommend it for anyone with wavy, frizzy hair. My favorite affordable beach spray is the Garnier De-Constructed Beach Chic Texturizing Spray. A bit of warning - the reviews are quite mixed. People seem to either love or hate the smell, so get it from a store so you can give it a whiff before you buy. And as with all texturizing sprays, you may not like the way it makes your hair feel. I wouldn't recommend this particular beach spray for women with dry, straight, or thin hair. I'm guessing those are the ones who were most unhappy with the results. My hair is thick and as I already mention, it's naturally wavy and frizzy. This spray worked partly like a smoothing and curl-defining spray for me while adding a bit of texture. This is one product I will always have in my arsenal from now on.

To add volume to the crown, especially if I don't feel like blow drying and curling, I use the Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease Hairspray. It has one bad review, but again, it must be from someone with thin hair, because it works amazing for me and has some other great customer reviews. It helps add volume as well as texture without flaking. I spray a little throughout my hair as well as at the roots.

My long wavy bob has a lot of layers. To control fly-aways, especially without a curling iron, I use
Garnier Fructis Style Pure Clean Finishing Paste. It offers control without being too greasy or heavy. Then I set the whole look with an anti-humidity hair spray. You might have guessed, it's also a Garnier product. I use the Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Aerosol Hairspray. Though I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of it, because it can cause flaking, which is why I only use it when I'm 100% finished with styling my hair. I've yet to find an affordable hairspray that doesn't cause flaking. Though this one is great with giving a flexible hold, creating shine, and controlling frizz. Just know that it isn't something you can use then restyle your hair the next day without shampooing and starting from scratch. It's a quite versatile hairspray in that you can use it lightly for touchable hold, but you can also pile it on for a more firm hold if you're styling a slicked-back ponytail or bun.
