My hair is generally flat/limp and straight with just a slight wave when it air dries. This takes about 2 minutes and allows me to conserve my energy for whatever I’m doing that requires me to be a real person.
- Short/medium length hair – shoulder length-ish hair tends to work best for these because longer hair gets too heavy
- Beautycounter Volume & Shape Shampoo and Conditioner – this helps give some volume as a base
- Beautycounter Sea Salt Spray – this gives some texture and loose waves
- Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse – this gives some extra curl definition
Adding the sea salt spray and mousse helps fake curly/beach wavy hair so I can let it air dry without looking like a wet dog.
Why Beautycounter vs. another brand?
US beauty product safety standards are basically non-existent and all kinds of harmful ingredients are legal to use (including “fragrance” which can be a catchall for even more harmful ingredients that don’t have to be disclosed). Beautycounter abides by European standards which bans or restricts 1,400 chemicals (compared to 30 in the US) as well as other chemicals that Beautycounter considers to be questionable.

Furthermore, each product goes through rigorous testing for heavy metal contamination from the manufacturing process. At the same time, they do this without compromising quality and several Hollywood A-listers wear Beauytcounter on the red carpet.
