With spring here and summer around the corner, mastering the perfect beach wave is on the to-do list. Whether you are headed to the beach or simply running errands, let us help you nail this look by following these quick and easy steps.
Step 1: Comb Out Your Hair!
Fresh out of the shower, towel dry your hair without pulling on it and gently squeeze the water out. Be careful not to be too rough as this can damage the cuticle of your hair and cause breakage and frizz. Next brush out any knots in your hair with a wide tooth comb, start at the ends slowly working your way up to the root.
Step 2: Apply Zenagen Boost Volume Foam
Add 1-2 pumps of the Zenagen Boost Volume Foam to the mid shaft of your hair and massage it into your ends. This product gives the instant lift at the root you’re craving, while leaving your hair with all-day body.
Step 3: DIY Professional Blow Out
After massaging the foam into your hair, it’s time to blow it out. We like to use a round brush and the Chi brand Blow-dryer. By using a boars hair round brush, it will help give you that salon blow out look at home. Use medium heat during this process, as temperatures that are too hot will strip moisture from your hair and cause the dreaded heat damage. Grab a section of hair, place it on the brush and guide the bush down the hair shaft with the blow dryer pointed directly towards the brush.
Step 4: Section Your Hair
After you have given yourself that D-I-Y blowout, it’s time to brush it out and section it off. We like to section my hair down the middle first with hair on both sides and then section off the crown. Always section hair with a clip instead of a pony tail so you don’t get kinks in your hair.
Step 5: Time To Curl
Next turn on your curling iron. We used the 1 ½ inch by Hot Tools and from experience, it helps get the best curls for the beach waves look. Adjust the temperature of the iron depending on your hairs thickness. The thicker your hair, the higher the temperature you can use. Starting in the back, grab a horizontal 1-inch section and wrap it flat on the curling iron. Be sure to leave the ends out. Hold hair on curling iron for just a few seconds and move on to the next piece. Rotate directions of the curls of the hair that are behind your ear. Once you have reached in front of your ear, go ahead and curl your forward pieces away from your face.
Step 6: Add in Zenagen Texturing Powder
Finally add some texturing powder to the root of your hair. Focus on the roots and gently puff the dispenser where ever volume is desired and shake the hair out after you use to disperse it well.
