My Secret Weapon for Sexy Beachy Hair… Summer & Beach NOT Required!

One of my biggest hair secrets is texture, texture, TEXTURE!

It really adds a whole different dimension to your style.

I have very long hair – it’s basically down my entire back – & one of my favourite ways to style it is to make sure it’s full of that sexy texture.

For the most part, it’s straight, with a slight wave. The added texture helps amplify that wave. It also helps make a basic style look not so basic.

My personal favourite way to wear it, especially as  we get into fall? In a ponytail! I find the added texture adds extra oomph to it. It’s an easy way to sex up your normal ponytail.

Tis the season for cozy sweaters, riding boots & a textured pony! It really is the perfect way to complete the look.

TIP :: with your pony tail, finish off with a bow or wrap a small strand of hair or braid around the elastic and secure with a bobby pin.

Hask recently invited me to try their new Hawaiian Sea Salt beach texture line & I WAS SO IN.

Basically, it’s three products that guarentee that perfect beach hair – you know what I’m talking about, right? When you go to the beach and the salty air gives your hair the most perfect wave & texture? Very effortless, carefree, instagrammable? Well this is it in a bottle.

The Beach Texture line consists of shampoo, conditioner, & salt spray infused with Hawaiian sea salt, pearl extract, coconut oil, & blue sea-kale!

For starters, the packaging is amazing. The blue bottles go perfectly with my shower aesthetic – think all white, silver, & blue. I know that doesn’t matter but HEY first impressions!

It also smells amazing – it basically transports me back to Fiji, it smells exactly like a beach… which next to leather, is one of my all time favourite scents.

The product is even better.

Upon first use, you will absolutely see & feel a difference.

Let’s break down the ingredients a bit. The Hawaiian sea salt is the OG for enhancing hair’s waviness. The coconut oil hydrates, nourish, & moisturizes your hair. Pearl extract is KEY for nourishing & repairing hair. In fact, pearl is a major anti-aging key, I add it in my coffee every morning with my collagen! Lastly, blue seakale protects the hair & keeps it strong and healthy.

PS – it’s cruelty free & has no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, gluten and artificial colors.

In fact, I find the salt spray is one of the most powerful beach salt sprays on the market. A little goes a LONG way. You will feel the difference in texture immediately after spraying.

It legit makes your hair feel like it was at the beach. I spray it on damp hair while I let it air-dry. If I heat curl it, I spray it before & after since it sets a bit like hairspray {& will keep that curl}. I also run a wide tooth comb through the curls to give it that “effortless” look.

Since salt is drying, you will want the extra moisture. Right after I shower with both the Hask Beach Texture Shamps & Conditioner, I do a mix of coconut and dilo oil on my hair. THEN, I spray the salt spray, let it air dry & style as it.

Also, I have a very regimented Patrick Bateman-esque routine before any blog photoshoots, even if it’s just Erik taking them in our neighborhood. I’ll do a full blown post on this as there are things I do both the day before and the morning of. Well, one of them is to use a texture enhancing shampoo / conditioner, in fact, I call this my photoshoot shampoo / conditioner for that reason. So thanks, Hask, for keeping it fleeky.

I find it photographs well, even for just impromptu instagrams – check it here, here, here & here. In fact, this last one was actually a shoot (vs random instagrams) for this post but we had sim card problems and lost the shoot – i wish the camera photos turned out but thank goodness for the iphone! PRO-TIP for bloggers, be sure to take a good amount of iphone photos during an actual shoot for back up!!!

Anyways, I’m getting off topic but are you sold yet?! If so, run over to Ulta and pick it up for yourself for $7.99 a piece! If you get it, let me know – I wanna see you style it! Tag me @shannonsilver instagram if you use it & share some hair tips!

Okay I wanna know YOUR hair tips! Spill spill – any other fun ways to get that sex kitten beachy texture?! SHARE! xx Shannon

  • another Sunday, another puzzle 🕵🏻‍♀️🕵🏻‍♀️ #momentswithsunday
  • Did anyone else have a full week of Mondays or was it just me?! Either way, I’m cheersing HARD to the weekend 🔆  #tgiff
  • After trying all of the natural @skylar fragrances, I settled with CAPRI - sparkling, sweet citrus ✨🏝🍋🌟 it was a scent that made me instantly happy and transported me to the Mediterranean, beachside, in a belted swimsuit, cat eye sunnies, & a huge hat with a limoncello spritz in hand. 🥂 Instant good vibes and I love how it fades to an irresistibly sweet finish on me. I’ve been layering it with Isle from the sampler pack below and some coconut-vanilla body lotions! I love that they are non-toxic, cruelty fre, & hypoallergenic. Use the code SCENTS10 for 10% off {& be sure to get the sampler pack so you can try them all - the cost of the $20 pack will be applied to the full size}! 🍋 🌟 #ad #skylarbody #ambskyfull #ambcollab #madeinla
  • my lil urban jungle cat 💖 Last night, @erikschuchard brought home a TON of plants: we now have succulents galore, some small trees, cacti, ferns, & my fave: palms & lots of them 🌴 now I have to find some chic planters and have no idea where to begin. Any ideas?! #blackcatsofinstagram #ihavethisthingwithplants #cornerofmyhome
  • Tennis, anyone? 🎾 skipped the gym today and hit the tennis courts with @erikschuchard instead! ✨ #lovelove #mysf #slsfit
  • Good scents come naturally and I’m loving @skylar lately. 🍃 It’s a non-toxic, hand crafted perfume from LA. I love that they are all natural and cruelty free not to mention hypoallergenic & both paraben / phthalate free.
🌟
Let’s talk the scents - can you guess which full sized one I chose?:
CAPRI: sparkly citrus with notes of musk, dewy rose, & neroli
ARROW: seductive night jasmine with warm vanilla, & patchouli
CORAL: flirty & fruity with grapefruit with apple blossom
ISLE: clean and refreshing with bergamot, sandalwood, & cardamom
MEADOW: elegant and feminine with tuberose & orange blossom.
🌟
they are so pretty on their own but they layer very well together. I personally am loving mixing Arrow with Meadow and Capri with Isle.
🌟
What’s really rad is that you can try all of their 5 scents in the comfort of your home before you commit to a full size! This set is $20 but when you decide which one you want, that $20 goes into the full sized perfume. ~*but wait there’s more*~ you can use the promo code SCENTS10 for a 10% discount!
🌟
OK SO- which are you?: spicy, fruity, clean, floral, or sparkly?! ✨
