Bet you didn’t know sea salt is the key ingredient of one of my favorite hair styling products. That’s right, Redken Fashion Waves 07 texturizing sea salt spray ($19) revives a curl and flat ironed hair like nothing I’ve ever used before.
Redken Fashion Waves 07 is a sea-salt based spray that offers medium hold, a matte finish, and loosely curled texture to your hair. It wasn’t until recently when I began to appreciate the benefits of texturizing sprays for giving both my naturally curly and straightened hair a gorgeous finish. When I use this spray on my curly hair, it helps to revive my curls and give them an extra bounce when needed.
It takes a lot of effort and elbow grease to flat iron my hair, so on the occasions I wear my hair in this style I want to keep it looking as good as possible as long as possible. I can stretch a straight style to 3 and even 4 days with some TLC, but by day 3, an intervention that is not more dry shampoo is required. That’s where textured salt spray comes into play.
So, what do you do when your hair do is looking less than it’s best? That’s when it’s time to spritz and scrunch Redken Fashion Waves 07 with the best of them. Here’s how to revive your hair style with Redken Fashion Waves 07:
1. If needed apply a dry shampoo to the roots. I like Batiste’s version.
2. Liberally spritz Redken Fashion Waves 07 on length of your hair.
3. Scrunch your hair to evenly distribute the spray and create loose waves.
5. Scrunch some more.
6. Voila! You’ve successfully revived your hair style and are ready to press on with fabulous, beachy waves that maintains its hold.
While I don’t braid my hair too frequently, I’ve been using Redken Braid Aid 03 ($25) when I’m perfecting my fishtail braid.
This balm gives hair grip, which is a great thing when you’re actually creating a braid as well as for helping the style last longer.
Use about 3-5 pumps throughout your hair to create the texture that does not weigh your hair down, and say hello to fabulous braided hair styles.
