Have you ever wondered how to get the perfect beach waves? I know I have. I’ve tried everything. I’ve tried expensive luxury curling irons, drugstore brand curling irons, I’ve tried leaving my hair overnight in braids, sea salt waving spray. You name it, I’ve probably tried it.
After all of this I decided to try the Beachwaver curling iron. I had heard great things about the brand, hair products, and irons, but I had never tried their iron because it was a little more expensive. But after going back and forth about buying one, I found one on sale (and they’re on sale right now!) and couldn’t wait for it to arrive.
Beachwaver Irons come in 3 sizes, .75, 1, and 1.25. I went with the S1 Iron, because I wanted looser waves, and I have fine, thin hair. S.75 would have been perfect if I wanted smaller, more defined waves, and the S1.25 would have been great if I wanted even bigger, beachier waves.
When my iron finally came in the mail, I could not wait to try it. As soon as UPS dropped it off, I plugged it in and got to work. After watching a video posted by the brand’s founder, Sarah Potempa, I quickly figured out how to make different types of curls using different techniques, and I was very impressed with how quickly I was able to curl my whole head of hair. I sprayed my hair with their Great Barrier Reef heat protectant spray and sectioned my hair.
Using the technique for a beachy wave (as shown by @sarahpotempa) I followed the process for each section of hair, starting from my bottom layers and working my way up to my crown. I couldn’t be more pleased with my end product!
My hair has also been a little dry since I got my highlights at my last hair appointment and I have been loving their Reparative Hair Care Kit. It comes with a pre-shampoo foam, shampoo, and conditioner. All three of the products smell wonderful and my hair feels so silky, soft, and hydrated after using them! This kit is available as set and available to purchase separately if you don’t want to try the pre-shampoo foam.
