FoolsintheRain:  Do  you let your hair air dry or do you blow dry it? I do both, depending on the day/what I have going on. 

If I air dry my hair: I divide my hair into 4 sections and twist them away from my face (whenever you curl your hair, ALWAYS curl the sections closest to your face away from your face). I just keep twisting them throughout the day and lay them gently against my shoulder or back. If I notice they become untwisted, I retwist. I don’t secure the ends. This helps them dry into loose waves. Air drying definitely produces a more natural beachy wave. 

If I blow dry: I dry my hair until it is still slightly damp. Then, I finish drying it section by section and twist the sections. 

I also find that curing with a straightener gives better beachy waves than curling with a curling iron or wand. 

You can make up a sea salt spray, spray your hair, and scrunch it. You can buy similar sprays, but it’s much cheaper to make your own. Here’s a recipe http://wellnessmama.com/5054/diy-beach-waves-spray/

FoolsintheRain:  glad I could help! I actually saw someting on pinterest about twisting your hair as it air drys to produce the beachy waves, and I said to myself “Hey! I do that!”. If people are pinning it, I must be doing something right! Good luck!

Oh, I just thought of something else. My Fiance uses this product in his hair that I absolutely love (he’s got a cut that requires he styles it to look nice). It smells a little on the manly side but it’s not overpowering. And the texture and hold it gives your hair is really nice. I put a little on my palm and rub it around in my hands. Then I kind of scrunch it into my hair after I curl it- on the ends and at the roots. It gives your hair a little bit of a messy look when you use it like that so it amplifies the beachy-ness. I believe this is the stuff: http://www.americancrew.com/products/style/fiber. It’s really thick and sticky almost- it feels more like wax than a cream or anything.

Use a one inch curling rod (doesnt have clips) I have the Sultra from sephora, works wonders.
