Our Best Tips for Air Dried Hair

Have you ever dreamed of having perfectly undone wavy hair? With these tips youâ%u20AC%u2122ll be able to say goodbye to the hot tools, shorten your morning routine, and have healthier looking hair! Always remember that everyoneâ%u20AC%u2122s hair type is different, so you might have to experiment with the products you use to get the outcome you are looking for.

Tip One: Finger Comb Your Hair in the Shower

Brushing your hair before you let your hair air dry will cause it to become frizzy, which is something no one wants to deal with. Instead, finger comb your hair in the shower before rinsing out your conditioner. This will help get any tangles out without it getting frizzy.

If your hair is fine or easily tangles, try combing your hair before you shower and still finger combing it while your conditioner is in.

Tip Two: Dry with a Microfiber Towel

Microfiber towels are gentler on your hair compared to your typical towel and help reduce frizz, which is important when air drying. After you get out of the shower, use a microfiber towel (or old t-shirt!) to remove excess water from your hair to speed up the drying process.

Tip Three: Embrace Hair Products

We are huge fans of embracing hair products to elevate your hairstyle, especially when weâ%u20AC%u2122re air drying. We carry a large collection of products in our salon, including DevaCurl and All-Nutrient. We not only use these products in our salon but also use them to style our own hair!

When air drying, start with a leave-in conditioner followed by a sea salt spray or texturizing product. Together, these products will help reduce tangles but give your hair some grit, which will give it that â%u20AC%u0153just left the beachâ%u20AC look.

Tip Four: Loose Braids are Your Best Friend

Our secret to getting perfectly undone beach waves is to pull your hair back in a low, loose French braid with big sections. This will give your big, undone waves. Once your hair is almost dry, let your hair down from the braid and let it dry the rest of the way.

If you let your hair dry all the way in the braid, your hair can get super kinky with very defined waves. If you like this look, braid your hair in smaller sections!

Ways to Perfect Your Beach Waves:

  • Apply a dab of oil to the ends of your hair to give it some shine.
  • Looking for more volume? Add a spritz of dry shampoo to your roots! This will not only give you volume but will soak up any extra grease.
