Its no surprise that beachy hair is my all time favorite hairstyle whether I am on or off the beach. I love the messy undone look with a good amount of texture and subtle volume. And even though this style looks quite effortless, the right tool and products make all the difference. I have tried a couple of products to achieve this look but always keep going back to a few of my absolute faves, cos they work so well for my naturally wavy hair to get that tousled après beach look.

At any time while styling my hair I obviously don’t use all these products at once! I usually end up using 1-2 products in this list or a combination of a few depending on the look I am going for. Here are some of my favorite hair products for beachy hair :
1)Fave product for surfer girl hair is the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. This was the first beach hair product I ever tried years ago, and it was certainly love at first ‘spray’ ! This is a great product to get a sexy windswept look and the easiest way to fake surfer girl hair. It does add a lot of texture , so if thats something you are looking for this product is fantastic. I also have the Surf Infusion which is an oil +sea salt spray amazing for softer waves. These 2 products can be used on wet or dry hair. If you prefer to use your product only on wet hair, try the Surf Foam Spray Blow dry which is a part mousse part salt spray that works the best before blow drying. Check out this post for my full review on how I use these 3 products.
2)Favorite everyday sea salt spray : I am in love with the Herbivore Botanicals Sea Mist Spray. I spray this product on my hair everyday! It is lightweight, perfect for daily use and smells so incredible! I have tried both the coconut and lavender flavors, and they’ll both make you feel like you stepped into the tropics. The spray also has aloe vera, which is weightless, nondrying and keeps hair balanced and healthy. Another natural everyday wave spray that I have tried and love as an alternative is the Ouai Wave Spray.

3)Favorite Tool for Mermaid Waves : T3 Micro curling irons! Handsdown my absolute fave if I use heat to style my hair. Read my full review in this post.
4) Favorite Texturing Spray : IGK Beach Club works wonders. Infact IGK hair is my new obsession in the hair product category, I have tried a bunch of their products and am totally hooked. I use the Beach club spray for giving my hair that extra texture before curling. But it also works like a boss when used by itself and gives you that salty ocean kissed look in seconds. I use it in combination with the IGK Styling primer.

5) Favorite Dry Shampoo : Dirty hair is your best friend for achieving the perfect kinda beach waves. But who wants actual dirty hair am I right haha! Thank goodness for dry shampoos. My new favorite is the IGK Jet Lag, it works sooo well, smells ah-maz-zing and gives you va-va-voom volume all while making you look like you just got back from a beach sesh. The best part about it is that it leaves no residue and the texture it leaves is touchable and natural looking. If you prefer a paste version of a dry shampoo, try the R+co Badlands. I have tried this and loved the results too.
6) Favorite Finishing Spray : Unlike ideal curls, you want beach curls to be more natural looking and effortless. I love opting for a softer hair spray to achieve this like the Ouai soft hair spray. I spray this after curling my hair. I also love the Oribe Apres beach spray which gives you that same windswept look while keeping your style in place.

7)Favorite Drug Store Beach hair products : If you are looking for a good beach hair product without breaking the wallet, I would recommend the OGX Moroccan sea salt spray for volume and the OGX Moroccan surf paste for adding texture.
8)Favorite Sun protection for hair : And most importantly if you’re actually out in the sun, dont forget your sunscreen for your hair ! My fave is the Aveda Suncare protective hair veil.
