How To: Hair Care for the Beach


        The weather is warm and it's time fore the beach. Enjoy the beach and protect your hair at the same time. No need to worry about your hair while you have fun. Here are pre and post- beach steps to prevent your hair from suffering while you relax and soak in the sun.


Pre- beach:

  1. Put your hair up. I do not recommend leaving your hair out in an afro. Smaller braids, cornrows, a bun, or  updo, keeps your hair out of sight and mind. 
  2. Pack some of your leave-in and an oil so you can moisturize if necessary
  3. Take your shampoo and conditioner  in case you have time to wash your hair.

Post-beach: 

  1. Wear a hat after you get out of the water. The sun is drying.
  2. Wash your hair when you can. Salt water is also drying.
  3. Pay special attention to your scalp. Sand and salt water can get on your scalp and can cause dryness and itchiness.
  4. Moisturize your hair as you usually do and be prepared for some extra pampering.
