Hair Products For On The Go Wet Styling

During summer, you often find yourself incredibly busy travelling, partying or at festivals. Living in the moment can cause our hair styling routines to slip as we struggle to make time. Most of the time, dry shampoo can be our saviour but sometimes it’s just not enough. After a day on the beach, the last thing you want to do is go and spend hours styling your hair ready to head to the bar in the evening. Luckily, we know that wet styling on the go is really easy and with the right products, anyone can rock it! From styling tools to serums and sprays, you’ll be sporting wet hair without a care in the world in seconds!

Styling Supplies

The first step for on the go wet styling is teasing out knots for a tidier look. Grabbing yourself some good-quality styling supplies can seriously improve your styling routine. First of all, it’s important to remember that brushing hair when wet can cause hair weakening and breakage so it’s best to use a comb.

Macadamia Healing Oil Infused Comb adds shine whilst the teeth evenly and effectively distribute the oil throughout the hair. Opt for the Wet Brush instead if you have thick locks as it’s specially designed for brushing wet hair. For those of you gals with naturally curly hair, you’ll finally begin to see your hair as the blessing that it is rather than a curse thanks to the Tangle Teezer Thick & Curly Brush. It is guaranteed to be your hero.

Sun-Safe Strands

Even though you may not realise it, your hair is vulnerable to sun and needs protecting, just like skin. Exposure to the sun can cause hair to lighten, leaving you with unappealing tones. Heat from the sun will also dry it out, leaving you with dull, lifeless looking locks. Using hair SPF will protect from both UVA and UVB rays whilst you spend time indulging in the dreamy weather. Add a few sprays of Wella Professionals Sun Protection Spray or Sachajuan Hair In The Sun Cream, comb through and you’re done! Take it with you if you’re going to be in water during the day, so you can re-apply.

Now your locks are sun-safe, it’s time to protect your skin too. Knowing that you need to use SPF on your face and body is common knowledge, however, knowing how to use it isn’t as well known. Our lazy girls’ guide to SPF will tell you everything you need to know to protect your skin almost effortlessly!

Speed Styling

Do you find that letting your hair dry naturally results in a style similar to a puppy straight out of the river (but less cute, of course)? Little do people realise, just applying products can create the illusion that you’ve spent hours styling your hair. For loose mermaid beach waves, a spritz of Label.m Sea Salt Spray will do the trick. To remove frizz and add silkiness, apply a small amount of the Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream then leave to dry. If you have naturally curly hair, scrunch an egg-sized amount of Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam into your tresses when wet and leave to air dry. This will help to define your curls and hold them in place for longer throughout the day.

Now you’ve got the ultimate wet styling hair routine, you’ll need some waterproof makeup to keep your looks on fleek all day long!
