Today we’re talking hair… I love talking about hair!! Before I get into this new fave, let me give you a bit of a background. I have thin, fine, boring, no volume to be seen hair. Hair products never really do what they say they’re going to do for me without a little help from some other product friends.
When I first got my hands on the Thai Coconut scented Beach Waves from The Gnarly Whale, I’ll admit, I didn’t have high hopes because my hair refuses to hold any form of curl without adding a massive amount of product. It’s just how it is, I have used other products aimed at giving you that ‘beach wave’ look before and my hair was left stick straight and kind of crunchy.
I knew going in that I couldn’t just follow the easy directions and ‘spray liberally over wet hair and let dry’ while that will absolutely work for most people who have a natural wave, curl or even straight hair that isn’t anti-curl like mine. I decided to follow those directions ‘sort of’ because I know my hair. Here’s what I did, and this gave me in my opinion the best kind of beach wave I could have imagined!!
1. Spray liberally over towel dried hair.
2. Flip your hair over & blow dry on low (cool setting)
3. Scrunch while drying
4. When hair is *almost* dry, spray a bit more all over
5. Flip hair and blow dry upside down on the cool setting
I was super impressed with the volume I got from this alone, especially since I usually need a root lifter and a good Jersey girl tease to see any type of volume and the waves? Oh Em Gee, I have NEVER used anything that gave me the kind of wave, dare I say loose curl that this did without heat and 10 different products. I don’t think impressed is enough to describe how absolutely amazed I was with the Gnarly Whale Beach Waves!
As if those lovely waves aren’t enough to make you want this product… Here are just a few more of my favorite things about it, and why I will always choose this over another brand! My hair was left feeling super soft no crunch here and the curl held up all day without adding hairspray, SUPER WIN! It’s the perfect mix of sea salt, coconut oil, and aloe vera gel to give that beach beauty look all day long. As with other Gnarly Whale products it is completely Vegan, so you don’t get that harsh chemical scent or residue in your hair, there was no product build up from this at all. Like I said, I have this in the ‘Thai Coconut‘ scent and I am obsessed with it but there are so many scents to choose from &&& I think I need Strawberry & Coconut Lime Verbana in my life ASAP!!
