Sun, sea and sand do wonders for our wellbeing (not to mention our tan) – but they can wreak havoc on our hair. When it comes to tousled waves, we’d rather be beach-beauty than Ursula-the-sea-witch.

Perfect Beach Hair ~ Tousled waves

So we’ve picked our top products for perfect beach hair (and think of the packing-space you’ll save by not taking your straighteners!):


We’ve long been fans of Herbal Essences – Tousle Me Softly, with its subtle pomegranate and violet scent, is perfect for calming curls. We’re also loving the new Bee Strong range with strengthening honey and apricot extracts. Perfect for repairing sun-damaged hair (and if it’s good enough for Ms Scherzinger, then it’s sha-mazing enough for us).

If you’re a holiday water babe you might be in need of deeper TLC: try Aussie 3-Minute Miracle – a super-quick way to give your hair a deep condition and healthy shine.


Umberto Giannini Flirty Curls Scrunching Jelly is our go-to everyday product for soft, tousled curls. You only need a small amount, so it lasts for ages and doesn’t leave any gel residue or greasiness. For tighter ringlets try John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Serum – fabulous hold and shine, and comes in a handy travel-size, perfect for packing.



We have a new-found addiction in Percy & Reed Finishing Polish : just a tiny amount of this silky cream smoothes waves, adding a healthy, glossy, salon-shine. Perfect for taming down humidity-induced frizz. The packaging is super-stylish and it smells divinely more expensive that it actually is too.


After a long day lazing on the beach or sipping cocktails round the pool, you want a product you can grab, style and go. New Got2b Beach Matt Salt Spray is perfect – all the benefits of relaxed, just-stepped-out-of-the-surf sexy waves, with none of the gritty sand of actually coming off the beach.

So there you have it – perfect beach curls whether you’re abroad or in the comfort of your home. Got your own favourite products? Tweet us @tweetjanes
