Creating Beach Hair


Do you want beach wavy hair, but are unable to hit the surf and sand? It’s a look we all love, especially with summer in front of us. Here’s an easy step- by- step approach, using a few ARROJO products.

  • First, start with damp hair, either by washing or simply misting lightly
    • If you wash your hair, be sure to also dry, leaving it damp only
  • Next, put ARROJO’s Curl Enhancer throughout your hair, making sure to spread it from the roots to the tips.
  • Part you hair and braid it on each side
  • Let it sit at the minimum for four hours, but overnight is even better
  • When you’re ready for the reveal, loosen your braids carefully and toss your head
  • If your hair is still damp, blow it dry lightly to remove any moisture
  • Finally, use ARROJO Wave Mist or ARROJO holding spray to give your beach hair a great hold
  • This should last at least a few hours, but if you’re hair holds curls well, it could last up to two days

Protect your color

Summer is coming. And with it, the sun, sand and surf that makes us fall in love with the season. But let’s face it the chlorine and salt water can also play havoc on our hair and our hair color. This summer, don’t let the elements ruin your look, try these ARROJO products and protect your hair.




Protective Thickening Lotion:

We love Protective Thickening Lotion because it thickens hair strands and fattens up limp hair! Great if you’re going to be out in the sun, Protective Thickening Lotion will also guard against breakage that can occur when you’re in salt water and chlorine.





Whipped Treatment:


Clients who have tried ARROJO Whipped Treatment love it. This color-saving product will preserve the shine, luster and tone of your hair color.   Keep your hair healthy, and help your color last a little longer with this deep conditioner.




Healing Oil:

We all love products that do what they say they’re going to do! And that’s why we recommend ARROJO Healing Oil. It will keep your hair looking healthy without weighing it down. Want amazing shine this summer? Try this restorative glossing spray that we refer to as “Miracle Oil!”

Hit The Waves

It’s time to get that surfer-chic look that we all crave as summer finally rolls in.  The look that’s making headlines is effortless and undone.  With the right products, anyone can have beach waves.  Whether your hair is straight, curly, wavy or relaxed, take note and jump in to the summer’s must have style.

Using ARROJO’s Wave Mist and a few styling tips, you can get this gorgeous texture.  Wave Mist is made with Sea Salt and Sea Kelp and creates a loose, sexy, playful look.  It’s great for creating lasting body and bounce.

To get the lived in look, spritz Wave Mist into towel-dried hair and then:

• Blow it dry and use your hands.  The result is amazing body and loose waves.

• Use a diffuser and create a ton of waves and plenty of curl.

• Air-dry and scrunch, for the most natural-looking waves.


Going out at the end of the day and want to recreate an effortless look?  Wave Mist is perfect to reactivate your waves and curls.  Just mist it lightly into your hair and then tousle with your hands.   You’ll have a gorgeous beach texture that screams “I’m ready for summer!”
