Summer is the best time to give your hair a break from the heat — of your flat irons, curling irons, and blow dryers that is. Letting your hair air dry is like a little treat to yourself, because who wants to spend precious time styling their hair every day?
The truth is, however, most women can’t just walk out the door with wet hair and expect a great hair day. Air drying your hair does require some effort, but use these products and it will be well worth it.
Leave-in conditioner is an essential if you plan on letting your hair dry naturally. A lot of people associate air dried hair with frizzy, rough hair, but it doesn’t have to be that way if you use the right products. A leave-in conditioner like the Living Proof No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner or Ouidad’s Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner will help to make your air dried hair super smooth and avoid any unwanted frizz. As someone with naturally thick, wavy and frizzy hair, I swear by the John Freida Frizz-Ease Daily Nourishment Leave-In Conditioning Spray. It’s under $10 and works wonders on my frizzy hair–and I can’t get enough of the smell!
Is there a summer look better than natural beachy waves? Using a sea salt spray like Bumble and bumble’s Surf Infusion Spray or Herbivore’s Coconut + Sea Salt Beach Wave Hair Spray will give you those desired waves. These sprays will give you that tousled, straight-out-of-the-ocean-look when really, you just got out of the shower. All you have to do is just spray in the product and your hair will air dry with tons of killer texture. Sea salt spray is also a must-have to pack in your beach bag because if you do go in the ocean, it’ll amp up that messy wave look.
