Effortlessly undone and carefree beachy waves have become the quintessential Summer hair style. I am so on board with this trend because it is not meant to look perfect and perfect hair is something I can never achieve. Having baby fine textured hair most of the styles I try fall out or frizz away. That was until I learned the importance of using the right products for the style you want to create. John Frieda® Beach Blonde™ Collection products allow you to achieve piecey perfection, windblown waves, and tousled texture, even if you have fussy hair like I do!

Because land dwelling Pisces Fish want Beachy Waves too.

Beach Blonde™ Sea Waves™ Sea Salt Spray and John Frieda® Beach Blonde™ Collection Beach Blonde™ Cool Dip™ Shampoo & Beach Blonde™ Smooth Seas™ Conditioner

Having been a long time user of the John Frieda® Sheer Blonde line I was really looking forward to trying the Beach Blonde™ Collection. They just know how to do products for blondes. Not a blonde? No problem! Women of all hair colors can use these products. It's perfect for both blondes and brunettes.
The scent of the Beach Blonde™ Collection Cool Dip™ Shampoo & Smooth Seas™ Conditioner is a gorgeous one. Both have an invigorating fresh mint scent that enlivens the senses like a beach breeze. Cool Dip™ Shampoo detoxifies and removes impurities leaving hair feeling clean with a weightless volume. Smooth Seas™ Conditioner nourishes and moisturizes your ends while keeping them tangle free and ready to style. Having fine hair I love that these products don't weigh my hair down or load them up with product.

I am so happy that they brought back the John Frieda® Beach Blonde™ Sea Waves™ Sea Salt Spray! It was one of my favorite styling products years ago. The spray is infused with natural sea salt that texturizes for perfectly undone tousled styles. It really helps to set your waves and add a piecey definition to the hair. It also has the most captivating coconut scent! You'll feel like you are on a Caribbean vacation every time you use it.

To create a beachy waves hair style I begin by washing my hair with the Beach Blonde™ Cool Dip™ Shampoo & Beach Blonde™ Smooth Seas™ Conditioner. Drying to almost all the way dry and then adding in some 20 inch length hair extension. Some times you've got to cheat to get Mermaid hair!
Adding a light spritz of the Sea Salt Spray on to dry hair beforehand will help to hold your curls. Taking 1-2 inch pieces with a 1.25” Curling Iron
I worked my way around my hair in sections curling away from the face leaving the ends out. This is just to add some body to the hair. Let hair cool 5 minutes before tousling if your hair doesn't hold curl well like mine.
Using a 1 inch curling wand wrap random pieces alternating towards and away from the face. Really there is no one way of doing these kind of waves just as long as it looks lived in and not too done.
To set these effortless waves I finished up with six or so sprays more of John Frieda® Beach Blonde™ Sea Waves™ Sea Salt Spray concentrating it through the ends. I love that this spray has a matte finish. It doesn't look or feel greasy on the hair and that tropical scent is island life.
Give it a good scrunch and tousle through with your fingers...or with the heat protective glove ;)  
Waves look courtesy of a day spent at the Beach styled by Salt & Sea even if it really was only 15 minutes spent curling our hair in the bathroom listening to Florence & The Machine "How Big How Blue How Beautiful". Ah wishful thinking!
Hours later and waves were still going strong. Having hair that falls flat in what seems like seconds (Even though I have naturally curly hair, what is up with that?) Having a style hold up for more than 20 minutes is a real accomplishment! John Frieda® Beach Blonde™ Sea Waves™ Sea Salt Spray you are some kind of miracle potion.

I picked up my John Frieda® Beach Blonde™ Sea Waves™ Sea Salt Spray and John Frieda® Beach Blonde™ Shampoo and Conditioner at my local Walmart in the Hair Care aisle. You may also find it on a special end cap.

John Frieda® Beach Blonde™ products will absolutely be coming along with me to beach vacations and to festivals this Summer. With the right products and techniques even us hair challenged can achieve those sought after Summer hair styles.
