3 effective ways to achieve beach hair without a trip to the beach

Ever got back from a beach vacation wondering how your hair looks so perfectly curled and tousled? Well, the secret is the salinity and moisture in beach air that adds volume and oomph to the hair. From Jennifer Aniston to Selena Gomez, everyone has been seen sporting beach waves at some point in time. Here are three oh-so-simple ways to get the look at home:


Salt spritz

You will need a tablespoon of sea salt, hair essential oil and some water. Mix it all in a bowl and pour the concoction into a spray bottle. Shake well and spray the mist on your hair, avoiding the roots. Scrunch hair with your fingers, wait for 10 minutes to let it set and you’re good to go. A word of caution – this method is not suited for someone with a dry scalp because sea salt will further dry the hair and roots.


The good old braid

Make braids in your hair when it’s wet and keep them overnight. Next morning, open the braids and gently comb the hair with your fingers (moistened with serum). Take a cold dryer and blow air from back to front and front to back of the head for two minutes – wait for hair to set and you are ready!


Hair buns

Use this trick on dry hair instead of wet (which can make scalp feel a little itchy.) Make mini buns with your hair and pin them with bobby pins. Blow dry the hair buns for a minute and then wait for an hour. Blow dry them again and remove the pins. Allow hair to fall in loose waves and then use salt spray (see point 1) to set the look. Remember, smaller the buns wavier the hair.
