Summer DIY: Sexy Beach Hair

Posted In: DIY >> How To

One of the greatest parts about a day spent at the beach the beautiful, carefree beach hair that results from a dip in the sea. Between the loose waves and the effortless texture, this hairstyle is the perfect look for summer.

No trips to the seaside coming up? We have everything you need to achieve that just-back-from-the-beach look, without having to get any sand between your toes—although we know you probably wouldn’t mind!

1. Lather Up

Beautiful beachy hair always involves getting a little wet. Start the look off by getting your hair squeaky clean with our best-selling Big shampoo. With a base of more than 50% sea salt, it gives limp hair the boost of volume it needs, while extra virgin coconut oil, avocado butter and seaweed infusion nourish every strand. We finish it off with a squeeze of fresh citrus juices to give your locks volume and shine that live up to the name.

2. Moisturize

Conditioning hair without weighing it down can be a challenge, but have no fear: Big solid conditioner is the perfect partner for Big shampoo! A match made in LUSH heaven, this naked conditioner is loaded with sea salt and coconut oil to soften your locks and infuse even more big, beachy volume. With a fragrance of vanilla, jasmine and tonka absolute, it smells gorgeous too!

3. Soften

If your hair tends to need a little taming, try our super hydrating R&B hair treatment. With softening ingredients like organic avocado butter and olive oil, both your hair and scalp will feel conditioned and revitalized. After stepping out of the shower, towel dry your hair until it’s still damp. Take a dab of R&B, rubbing it between your hands before applying throughout your hair, focusing on the bottom half and ends of the hair, then say goodbye to flyaways!

4. Spritz

One of the secrets to getting perfectly beachy hair is the salt water, and we’ve bottled it just for you! After using a Big combo in the shower and smoothing out your locks with R&B, pump up the volume even more with volumizing hair mist, Sea Spray. This sea salt, sea water and seaweed spritz will hold your hair in place, giving the texture of a long day relaxing on the sand. Spray all over your damp hair and scrunch upward from tips to roots.

5. Make Waves

A fresh-from-the-beach look is never complete without the soft, carefree texture of beachy waves. After you’ve sprayed and scrunched your mane, begin braiding your hair into a French braid. Make your braid tighter or looser depending on how you want your waves to turn out. Once secured, let your hair air dry the rest of the way. When it’s dry, undo your braid and let your curls tumble out, carefully using your fingers to separate the strands. For more hold, finish off the look with another spritz of Sea Spray. For even more definition, use a curling iron to create a few loose waves framing your face.

There’s no place we’d rather be during the summer than the beach. We know that’s not always possible, but our hair can dream, can’t it? Whether you’re at the office or out on the town, bring the beauty benefits of the beach with you by following these simple steps. Looking for even more summertime hair and skincare tips? We’ve got them all, just in time to beat the heat!
