Jessica Alba’s hack for getting the perfect beachy hair texture

Jessica Alba hair texture

It’s so easy to try for yourself

Jessica Alba is the sort of celeb who you get the feeling simply rolls out of bed and immediately looks immaculate. If she told us “I woke up like this”, we’d actually believe her. And apparently, it’s not too far from the truth. In a recent interview with Byrdie during her time backstage at New York Fashion Week, the actress and founder of Honest Beauty revealed that all it takes for her to nail her effortless, beachy waves is to sleep with wet hair.

“I like to take a shower at night. I feel like taking a shower or taking a bath, it just kind of like – I wind down,” she said. And she uses it as an opportunity to get a head start on her hairstyle for the following day. Jessica explained, “I don’t even mind going to be with my hair wet. I think it’s fine. And then I wake up with lioness hair.”

Jessica’s top tip is to “spray some leave-in conditioner and a little sea salt spray before you go to bed; it gives you that extra volume and texture.”

While this trick may work better for some than others (you need some natural curl in your lengths – sorry straight-haired beauties), we’d definitely say it’s worth a try coming into summer – purely for how low maintenance it is.

If you feel like trying a more dramatic hair change for the warmer months, these are the haircuts, colours and styles experts predict are about to be huge!
