Give your hair a BOOST!

The way to boost flat, lifeless hair is to add waves to it.

Have STRAIGHT hair?
Use a curling iron or straightener to achieve beachy waves. Don't forget the heat protectant!! Click here to see how to get waves with a straightener :) To finish it off, apply pomade or wax or even sea-salt spray as this will help your style LAST (see below).

Already have WAVY/CURLY hair?
Use pomade, wax, or a wave-enhancing spray to scrunch hair up. This works best if done when hair is damp so the style will last.

Another option is to use a sea-salt spray. To make this DIY spray at home it's simply 8 fl. oz of distilled or filtered water and 1 tsp. of sea-salt (for every 8fl.oz. added). Place this all in a handy, clean spray bottle and that's it! If you want to add some scent, add 1/2 tsp of coconut conditioner or oil. This will help to counteract the dryness of the salt also.



Don't use heat products?
-Tie your hair into a bun after you get out of the shower. They higher the bun, the more waves there will be.
-Wait a good 15-20 min at least (the longer you have it the more defined the waves; try sleeping with it)
-Remove the bun and spray with a wave/curl enhancer OR the DIY sea salt spray. For more texture, use pomade to separate the hair.

Let me know how this works for you!

Good luck & stay maganda!
