Weightless, texturized hair is closer than you think.
I've always had a love/hate (mostly hate) relationship with hair styling products that claim to give hair texture. If you have stubbornly straight hair like mine, that usually is a false statement. I've tried so many salt sprays but most give my hair a stringy feeling which I'm not a huge fan of. Plus, they usually make my hair frizzier than usual without any flattering piecey texture. Before Verb's Sea Texture line, I was using my beloved Kristen Ess Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray, which works miracles in conjunction with my Remington flat iron. But even then, I was using a lot of heat styling products. With the Sea Texture fam, I have finally found my perfect match! So today, I want to share my steps to getting texturized hair---minimal to no heat required---and also talk about the latest Verb product launch: the Verb Sea Texture Spray.
Post shower, work the Verb Sea Texture Cream or Sea Spray (or both if your heart desires) into damp hair. Make sure that ample product is applied throughout your hair. If you have thick hair like me, this part is crucial. I lift my hair a section at a time before spray the Sea Spray or applying the Sea Texture Cream to make sure that I have covered everything in product. And don't worry, these products will not weigh your hair down.
Twist sections of your hair with your fingers (tip: smaller sections dry much faster!) and then blow-dry while maintaining the curls as much as possible. It's fine if the curls unravel a bit. To get that tousled wavy texture, scrunch sections of your hair while you blow-dry.
*****You can also skip the blow-dryer and just air-dry your hair. Personally, I like to air-dry my hair a bit while I do my makeup to limit the amount of heat exposure to my hair due to blow-drying.
Lightly spray the Sea Texture Spray onto dry hair. Be sure to hold the can 8-10 inches away to ensure that the product is evenly distributed. Your hair will feel a bit gritty after but that powdery texture is what keeps your hair separated. Sometimes I will even use this texture spray on days when my hair is straight or on second day hair for that tousled, voluminous look. Also, do NOT comb your hair! If I know I'm going to have a long day, I'll finish off with some Ghost Hairspray to help this last all day.
I hope these simple steps help you achieve texturized hair. Special thanks to Verb for sending me these products. Like all Verb products, the new Sea Texture Spray is also $16.
Until next time, Megan
