This post has been a long time coming, but I’ve been getting a ton of questions about my hair. I wanted to get it all together in one post so I’m breaking it down into different sections with all the products and tools I use.
Growing up I always had stick straight thick hair that was really heavy and wouldn’t hold curl. I longed for natural curls or waves and had a few perms in elementary school. A few years ago I finally mastered curls and beachy waves by wrapping my hair around the curling iron barrel. Flash forward two years and I noticed how damaged my hair felt. I tried to cut back but my hair felt so flat and blah so I realized I needed help.
Here’s my hair haul. I’ve used it’s a 10 and bain de terre for years but I recently started the Kerastase products and can already tell what a big difference they’ve made on my hair health. My hair feels smooth and much more nourished now.
After showering I use it’s a 10 (I’ve used the regular one as well as this one with Keratin, they’re both great but this one nourishes more) as a detangler and leave-in then throw my hair up in a towel for 5-10 minutes to soak in the moisturize. After I let it out I apply a small drop bain de terre serum in it. Later I’ll apply, again just a small drop, of keratase resistance topseal cream in it and follow with a blow dryer. After styling my hair I finish with keratase soleil aqua-seal.

I know summer is almost over, but when it’s hot I never want to do my hair. I love the look of relaxed beachy waves but don’t always want to heat style my hair…. so, when all else fails I reach for some beach spray. It’s best when you work it through wet to damp hair, scrunch and let air dry. But if you’re in a hurry a diffuser will also do the job.
I have stick straight hair and all four of those products will give me a relaxed wave. But I started thinking, this can’t be too hard to make yourself, right? Guess what? It’s not. Here’s a super easy and cheap recipe to try.
you will need…
1 spray bottle
1 cup of water
2 teaspoons of sea salt
2-3 squirts of your favorite styling gel
1 squirt of a yummy smelling conditioner
This will cost about $10 and all items can be purchased at a drug store. Mix and spray on wet to damp hair and… voila!
