Big hair does a body good.

Let's just face it: I have giant hair. It's thick, wavy, and loves to expand.  Does it scare me? Hells no. I love it! I love sleeping on it wet and waking to my lion mane.  I love that I can try a million looks and I never have to add extensions or hair pieces for special events.  This is getting a little braggy, so I'm going to stop my hair love letter.

One of my favorite go-to hairstyles for the summer, other than the infamous bun, is beach hair.  It's sister is sex hair, but come on now, it's a little too intimate and I despise the term.  On that note, take a look at the wild mop that is my hair:

Circa 2010 with bang action.

Yes, most of this work is done while I'm sleeping.  The last part of the look is completed with a few key products and a diffuser.

Step 1: Creme!
Frederic Fekkai Luscious Curls Cream 4 oz (100 g)

My friend gave this to me as a sample and I fell in love.  Put it in wet or damp hair and start your engines, er I mean, hair dryer and diffuser.  You will see definition and minimal frizz.

Step 2: Beach it!

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, 4-Ounce Bottle
Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray
Yes, I know this is a cult favorite, which also means it's also my favorite.  I spray some on, tussle my locks, do a little scrunch action, and I almost look like Gisele.

Step 3: More Fekkai.

I swear this stuff is made with magic potion or virgin tears or something astounding.  As soon as I spray it on, I see the curls develop in slow motion.  It's equal parts creepy and amazing.

Last step: Diffuse again with your head down.  You then flip it over.  This allows for maximum volume and lion mane-ness (official term).

My mom's going to be so proud!
