faux windswept beachy waves {Ouidad}

Ouidad, known for catering to the curly hair types, wants to take you to the beach, well, at least make you look like they did. Who doesn’t love that fresh-from-the-beach windswept, tousled hair?  Nothing says summer like beachy waves and now you can have them without the peak season crowds and sand-filled suits! Ouidad’s new Wave Create Collection transforms even the straightest hair to tresses with body and summer style.

To create faux beach hair, we better go straight the source.  What is is about the beach that gives boring flat hair all that oomph?  Why the salty seawater of course!  Ouidad’s Wave Create Sea Spray creates that tousled, wavy texture with natural seawater and mineral-rich sea salt crystals.  The seawater actually comes from the ocean and contains natural salts that create soft, day-at-the-beach waves.  Sea Spray also contains vitamin-rich seaweed and algae extracts to nourish limp and lazy hair.  This is important to note as the spray offers hydrated, soft waves, never hard or crunchy.  Oh man, how I strongly dislike crunchy curls!

The other half of the Wave Create Duo is Texture Taffy, a flexible styling cream.  This taffy has a very unique consistency that leaves hair in soft waves with no leftover residue.  The Texture Taffy also nourishes hair with its Marine Complex, a mix of vitamins and minerals.  You can use these products together or separately.  My hair already has waving tendencies so I use them separately most days, but together when I want extra curl.

Both products are to be used in damp hair and with a scrunching motion to encourage waves.  Like I said up there, I have naturally wavy hair but somewhere around midday they start to fall a little flat.  The Sea Spray is the perfect pick me up to refresh waves.  A few sprays and a little root massage and I’m good to go!  I also like to do this because it smells so good.

How do these products work for me?  Let me tell you, I am fully obsessed with the Wave Create line.  They leave my hair so soft, never sticky, greasy or crispy.  My hair is curlier with the products but also hydrated and healthy, and smelling wonderful!  I knew the spray would be a great fit for me but I was worried the taffy would be too heavy for my hair.  I was wrong — the taffy is quite lightweight and it takes very little to achieve the look I’m going for.  Just make sure to only use a little bit (dime or nickel size).

Purchase the Wave Create Duo online for $40 or separately for $23 a piece.  Keep in the know by liking Ouidad on Facebook.
