So, you’re looking for ways to rejuvenate your hair after a day at the beach. 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. Whether you just got back from the beach or are looking to plan in advance for your next day at the beach, look no further, because these ways to rejuvenate your hair have got you covered!
1. Leave-in Conditioner
Leave-in conditioner is definitely one of the fastest and easiest ways to rejuvenate your hair after a day at the beach! 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!
2. Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is my ultimate go-to quick hair fix. 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!
3. 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!
4. Coconut Oil
If you have thin hair, proceed with caution when it comes to coconut oil. It’s a great moisturizer for your hair, especially after a day at the beach, when you’re looking for something that’ll get the job done while smelling as amazing as the beach you just left. Plus, if you apply it before, it can help seal in your hair cuticles and protect them from damage. However, you need to be careful if you have thin hair, as it can make your hair look very greasy very quickly.
5. 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 on the market that will save your hair from chlorine damage, whether you’re blonde or brunette!
6. 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!
7. Try a Moisturizing Mask
If your hair is in major need of repair after a day at the beach, pull out the big guns. 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!
