Beach Hair

Everyone loves a day spent relaxing by the water, except for your hair, that is. The salty sea air and water can do serious damage to your hair if you’re not careful. Here are some ways to rejuvenate your hair after a day spent near the waves!

Leave-in Conditioner

Leave-in conditioner is definitely one of the fastest and easiest ways to rejuvenate your hair. Spray a little bit in your damp hair, and you’ll notice a world of difference when your hair dries. It will feel soft, even if you just spent the day swimming in salt water!

Dry Shampoo

If your hair looks a little grimy after a day at the beach, spray some dry shampoo in it. Not only will it get rid of any grease and build-up, but dry shampoo also adds a nice texture to your hair, as well as giving your hair a lot of volume to play with!

Play with Your Natural Texture

If you just spent the day at the beach, there’s a fairly good chance that the salty air has helped your hair achieve the beach waves goodness we all attempt to replicate on a daily basis. If you’re satisfied with how it looks naturally, leave it rather than try to tame it with different oils and moisturizers!

Coconut Oil

If you have thin hair, proceed with caution when it comes to coconut oil, it can leave the hair looking greasy. It’s a great moisturizer for your hair, especially after a day at the beach, when you’re looking for something that will get the job done while smelling as amazing as the beach you just left. If you apply it before, it can help seal in your hair cuticles and protect them from damage.

Do Some Prep Work

If you’re worried about damage before you go to the beach, you can try a moisturizing mask or a leave-in conditioner before you head out. If you’re spending the day at the pool rather than the beach, there are so many products we offer that will save your hair from chlorine damage, whether you’re blonde or brunette!

Give Your Hair a Break

Both before and after a day at the beach, it’s important to give your hair some time off. Don’t run straight to the flat iron or blow dryer after a day at the beach, no matter how tempting it may seem. Think of it this way: you’re worn out after a day at the beach, and so is your hair. Don’t put it through too much after a day of salty air and swimming!

Try a Moisturizing Mask

If your hair is in major need of repair after a day at the beach, try our brazilian blowout hair masque or our intense hydrator. The night after a day at the beach, slather your hair with a moisturizing mask to get it back to its original softness. In fact, your hair may even be softer than you remember!
