First, let’s set the record straight. This is a real photo. Of a real beach. Next to my house. On the lake. In the Poconos. Also? It’s not photoshopped because I’m not fancy like that and do not have those sorts of skills.
Ok, now that we have that out of the way! When I first heard about LiQWD’s newest hairstyling cream, The Perfect Wave, immediately thoughts of Misquamicut Beach in Rhode Island flooded my head. Salty air, sun-kissed skin and always the unstructured waves that gave my hair that totally sexy vibe…but always with the “crunch.” You know the crunch, right? The mix of sand and surf dried amongst your tresses. Your hair would be totally magazine worthy had it not been for crunchy hair. (That would poke your eye out if you weren’t careful.)
You only need to apply a pea-sized amount and finger through towel-dried hair. I use a diffuser when I dry my hair and also “scrunched” sections to enhance the wave effect. I totally loved how touchably soft it was…yet still wavy. Who remembers back in the day when you would try to repeat this same beach hair look by adding in tons of AquaNet to hold the wave? If you remember that…then you will gleefully love The Perfect Wave and the texture it gives you without investing in an entire bottle of hairspray to maintain it.
Find it at salons nationwide and www.liqwd.com ($22).
