Nothing quite compares to the look of beachy curls after a day out by the ocean, with a sun kissed shine and a subtle salty wave, but how can you achieve this beautiful style without actually visiting the beach? Thankfully it doesn’t have to be as difficult as you might expect, as there are a number of innovative ideas that you can make the most of to transform your hair without the help of the sea. So, if you’re ready to achieve beach chic no matter where you might be, then read on! 

Buy (Or Make) A Salt Spray 

The easiest way to achieve those all important beachy curls when you’re miles away from the nearest ocean is to buy or make your own salt spray. A salt spray is pretty self explanatory, as it’s a formula that contains a certain percentage of natural sea salt in order to provide the same effects that the ocean usually would on your hair. Salt helps to bring out and maximise the natural curls in your hair, helping to add texture. There are many different brands that offer their own take on a salt spray that you can invest in, most of which offering their own unique additional benefits such as essential oils or perfumes, but you can easily craft your own salt spray using DIY methods if you want to. You don’t need many ingredients, just a suitable spray bottle, some sea salt, olive or coconut oil and some warm water – you can choose to add your own essential oils if you want, but this is totally your choice. Always shake the bottle before you use a salt spray to make sure the salt is fully dissolved before spraying directly onto your hair from around 20 centimetres away, and use your hands or a hairdryer to separate and scrunch your hair if you want more texture. 

Find A Beach Inspired Shampoo & Conditioner

There are many big brands that aim to encapsulate the feeling of the beach and ocean in their products, offering a range of shampoos and conditioners that provide a similar effect to a dip in the sea might offer. It’s best to find a salon quality brand if you want to benefit from the best results, as drugstore standard formulas won’t have the same noticeable effects. It’s a good idea to do a little bit of research online to uncover the most popular brands for beach-curl encouraging haircare, as you can learn from the experiences of other haircare lovers to locate the best quality formula available. Some brands actually make shampoos and conditioners that contain sea salt, so this can be ideal to help promote natural beachy curls that wouldn’t look out of place in the ocean. Just ensure that if you’re using a large amount of salt based hair products, you may need to also add in a moisturizing or conditioning treatment to keep your hair and scalp feeling healthy rather than drying out too much. 

Use A Hair Diffuser

Last of all, an excellent way to achieve amazing beachy curls is by using a hair diffuser. You might be wondering, what does a hair diffuser do? Well, a hair diffuser is an attachment that links to the end of your hair dryer to spread the hot air evenly while helping to lift and separate your curls. It’s such an inexpensive way to add masses of volume and lots of bouncy curls to your hair, but it can cause damage if you regularly expose your hair to high levels of heat. Where possible, keep your hair dryer on a low level to dry it with a diffuser slowly. Always be gentle to ensure your curls do not end up becoming tangled and stuck. Combining the use of a salt spray on damp hair and s top quality hair diffuser will certainly provide you with the beachy waves that you seek!

Whether the winter months are making an ocean visit impossible or you simply live too far away to see the sea, achieving beachy curls can help to transport you back to the beach without having to leave the comfort of your home. It’s never been easier to get the best beachy curls, as all you need to do is buy or make a salt spray, find a suitable shampoo and conditioner, and use a hair diffuser to promote more pronounced waves. So, what are you waiting for? Transform your luscious locks today with these excellent ideas!
