How to Have Great Beach Hair

“Great beach hair” doesn’t have to be an oxymoron, if you follow our advice.

You will need

  • Leave-in hair conditioner with sunscreen
  • Anti-frizz spray
  • A hat
  • Straightening cream
  • A clarifying shampoo
  • Baby shampoo
  • Swim cap
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • A killer swimsuit

Step 1 Apply leave-in conditioner Before you head to the beach, wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo, use a good conditioner, and then apply a leave-in conditioner with sunscreen.

Step 2 Take along anti-frizz spray Toss an anti-frizz hair product into your beach bag and spray it on every few hours.

Step 3 Wear a beach hairstyle Wear your hair in a beach-friendly hairstyle, like slicked back or in loose braids.

Step 4 Bring a hat Bring a hat. A wide-brimmed straw hat tied under the chin with a scarf is always chic. Or, for a less girlish look, don a cowboy hat or a baseball cap.

Step 5 Rinse your hair after swimming Rinse your hair with fresh water as soon as you come out of the pool or ocean.

Step 6 Apply some balm Rub a small dab of straightening cream between your hands and then wipe it on your hair if it starts to frizz.

Step 7 Clarify and condition your hair Use a clarifying shampoo once a week and deep condition your hair once a month.

Step 8 Buy a killer bathing suit Buy a killer bathing suit. Then no one will be looking at your hair.
