Strawberry blondes like me will understand the struggle we go…
I don’t really get a chance to head up to a cottage or lay out in the sand very often, but I do crave that beachy hair look. Luckily, LUSH has some great beach-themed products that really give my hair an “all day out in the sun playing volleyball, oops you got sunscreen in your hair…” hair.
First, I start with SEANIK Solid Shampoo ($11.95 CAD) made with two kinds of seaweed and a bit of sea salt. This softens, adds shine and boosts the volume of my hair, and it smells like the ocean (fresh and salty).
Next, I add some BIG Solid Conditioner ($9.95 CAD) to my hair by moistening the bar under warm water and sliding the bar down my hair from root to tip. This smells heavenly and actually reminds me of the scents of a beach: salty sunscreen. It’s a mix of vanilla, jasmine, tonka, sea salt and coconut oil, so you hair is left hydrated, shiny and full of volume.
I actually use SEA SPRAY Hair Mist ($12.95 CAD) when my hair is wet and dry. I spritz a bit in my hair after I’ve toweled off and then twist sections freestyle and let it air dry. This helps bring out my natural curl.
Then, once it’s dry, I’ll spritz a bit more all over to hold it in place. This orange flower, grapefruit, neroli and rosewood mist is almost like a hair perfume for me with a bit of hold. It smells fresh and a bit sweet, and when mixed with the lingering scent of BIG conditioner, I honestly can’t stop smelling my hair.
My curls are defined but not overly styled or crunchy, my hair has lots of volume and there’s a ton of shine without being greasy. And did I mention all these products together make the most gorgeous scented hair ever?
Now I can’t say how these would work on straight or fine hair, but I think you should give it a shot. The BIG Solid Conditioner has been my go-to Summer hair care for over a year and I’m never going back!
