Q: I love the look of hair after a day at the beach, the problem is, we don't live near the ocean! How can I achieve this look with my hair even though I am in the middle of the desert?
A: This look is surprisingly simple to recreate even without the ocean or a beach in site! You can do it a number of ways. If your hair is naturally wavy, you should wash and condition it at night, go to bed with a loose bun, and when you wake up, viola! you have your "beach wave" look. Add a bit of styling mouse or gel for hold and you're good to go. Another approach is to use a salt water spritzing spray for added texture and waves, such as Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. Or you can make your own with a couple of tablespoons of sea salt, with some water in a spray bottle. Spritz your hair when it is damp, scrunch, and allow to dry naturally.
Over-use of this practice can make your hair dry. You can keep it moisturized by using Tijeras Naturals daily shampoo and following with the Tijeras Revitalizer.
