9 Wave Sprays To Sustain Beachy-Strands Long After Spring Break Ends
Spring break is such a tease. We plan months in advance for a summer-inspired getaway, only to bask in the sunshine for a week or so, if that. What's more, our sun-kissed skin is left to fade under office attire in 9-5 settings, and bouncy beach waves will, inevitably, wilt under the lingering dry, winter conditions.
Returning to reality after vacation is hard; watching our hair suffer through the dullness of winter is even worse. But, just because spring break has to end, doesn't mean that fresh, summer-inspired hairstyle has to. Sustain those luscious, oceanic tresses, with any of these cruelty-free wave sprays.
1. Eufora Full Effect
Especially great for flat or fine strands, Eufora’s spray contains natural starches for added texture and a botanical blend of chamomile, horsetail, nettle, and henna for strong, healthy tresses. What’s more, sunflower seed extract provides optimal color protection, a necessary trait for highlights and brunettes-gone-blonde.
2. Kristin Ess Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray
Authentic beach waves are hard to mimic, but we’re not exaggerating when we say BioSilk’s beachy spritzer is basically ocean in a bottle. Texturizing salts create effortless bend, while a combination of herbs, silk, and essential vitamins nourish the scalp and strands while sustaining gorgeous body.
4. KEVIN.MURPHY HAIR.RESORT.SPRAY
Pro tip: If “resort” is in the name, it’s a clear winner. KEVIN.MURPHY’s wave spray contains wheat amino acids that absorb into the follicles and work to lock in moisture. Hydrolysed silk has also been added to serve strands essential proteins and act as a conditioning treatment for a smooth, shiny finish.
5. AG Hair Care Sea Spray
Administering a pinch of salt to a so-called wave spray isn’t exactly groundbreaking, which is why PRÊTE's obsessing over AG Hair’s clever complex that features not one, but three texturizing sea kelp extracts, as well as anti-aging seaberry oil.
6. AVEDA Texture Tonic
AVEDA’s wave spray is sugar, spice, and everything nice, combined with magnesium sulfate (salt) for beautifully crafted twists and bend. It’s also extremely versatile so if you didn’t spritz pre-styling, no worries, it works just as well post-blow out.
7. OUAI Wave Spray
Here at PRÊTE, we recognize genius when we see it, and Jen Atkin is no exception. OUAI’s wave spray is California in a spritzer bottle, and has the power of rice protein combined with coconut water and jasmine flower extract to coil even the flattest strands. This one’s a must-have for sure.
8. R+CO SAIL Soft Wave Spray
Envision gentle waves leading you to shore; that’s what SAIL embodies through your strands. With sea kelp for oceanic authenticity, amla providing vitamin C, and rose hip for conditioning, a few even spritz on styled or air-dried tresses will leave you with easy, breezy waves that are oh, so soft to the touch.
9. Oribe Matte Waves Texture Lotion
Granted, Oribe’s styling balm is obviously not a spray, but we feel this product is worth the mention. While we love that sort of boho-beachy wave that has a hint of crunch and a lot of shine, here at PRÊTE, we also believe there’s something to be said about classic body that’s a little more subtle.
Featuring the brand-exclusive, protection complex made from watermelon, lychee, and Edelweiss flowers, Yacón for nourishment, and Brazilian nut extract high in fatty acids and vitamin C, hair stays styled without any salty compound to dry out strands one by one.
