Scanning the break for beachy waves? If your mane/mop naturally has a lot of volume to it (read: when left to its own devices, it’s big and voluminous enough to exert its own gravitational pull), then Ouidad’s Wave Create Texture Taffy ($23) can tame that untapped volume and turn it into well-behaved waves.
A new flexible styling cream, it coaxes beachy waves out of straight or wavy hair. I’ve been using it for the past few days to tame my tresses and create full-on beachy waves.
Now, I lurves big hair (big hair don’t care!), but sometimes I lurves it more when it’s controlled and not wild.
Enter Texture Taffy. It adds just enough weight to hold down wild volume without making your hair lie totally flat.
Take a dollop the size of a nickel, rub it between your palms (watch it stretch!), then scrunch into damp hair to encourage better beachy waves. The process takes about five minutes total, and then I just let my hair air dry.
Texture Taffy contains giant sea kelp extract to nourish curls and enhance shine, and algae extract to moisturize.
The product dries to a matte finish and creates waves of large, defined pieces. It also definitely makes my hair feel softer, and I love the pineapple scent.
It’s a little extra work to use, but if your hair tends to get big and wild, and you want the look of defined waves, with Texture Taffy (I keep wanting to type “Texture Tabby”), surf’s up!
