I have such great memories of growing up in Southern California and going to beach slathering baby oil on my fair skin and frying in the sun. Okay maybe that’s not so fond but the salt water in my long hair creating those soft full waves is. The beach still appeals to me, it’s my favorite type of vacation; the warm sun, the tropical drinks, the breeze off the ocean. While I can’t replicate that expereince here in the Pacific Northwest, Marc Anthony has made it easy to replicate the sexy, beachy hair of my youth.
“We love the tousled sexy beach hair look. The issue is how to get it quickly with little effort. When shooting for magazines hair changes happen quickly and often. Dream Waves keeps up with both its delivery of amazing waves and the fact that it shifts hair from straight to sexy beach waves so quickly. For full-on beach waves we start with wet hair, but we can actually play with the stylers on dry hair for softer waves…this is amazing to us.”
– Marc Anthony Stylist Team
The fresh-from-the-beach look can be recreated anywhere with these 4 products:
- DREAM WAVES Amplifying Shampoo
- DREAM WAVES Amplifying Conditioner
- DERAM WAVES Beach Spray
- DREAM WAVES Amplifying Lotion
I KNOW you’ve heard me
complain whine about my fine, limp hair. DREAM WAVES has special conditioning polymers to add body, Hydrolyzed Silk and Pro-Vitamin B5 add moisture and shine. Even better than those are UV Protectors to save your tresses from sun exposure, dehydration and color fade.
Here’s how the system works–and it does!!
1. Wash with the sulfate free Amplifying Shampoo and Conditioner
2. Spray Beach Spray on wet hair and scrunch–don’t worry it won’t make your hair crunchy 80’s hair I promise
3. For a defined waves, apply Amplifying Lotion on damp hair working it from roots to tips. Scrunch hair–for bet results let hair air dry or blow dry using a diffuser.
I was AMAZED at how much curl and texture I got using the Marc Anthony BEACH WAVES! My hair is short, layered and razor cut so it is NOT ideal for this type of look but I still got waves and tons of texture. Those of you with longer hair that isn’t as layered as mine will be pleased as tropical punch!!! See what these products did for Blushing Noir. Oh and, all these products smell like coconut and sand.
You might expect as I did, that a system like this is expensive. Great news! All these products are SO affordable–each one is only $7.99 at Ulta. You can also find Marc Anthony at CVS and Rite-Aid. Click here for a full list of locations.
Bottom Line: If you been longing for soft, textured beachy waves with products you can afford, you’ve found it!
