What Causes Beach Hair Damage?
First, beach water can strip away the natural oils that protect your hair causing beach hair damage. Second, salt water can dehydrate your hair, making it more prone to breakage. Third, the sun’s UV rays can penetrate through the water and cause damage to your hair.
How to Prevent Beach Hair Damage
If you still haven’t noticed a lot of damage, there are plenty of things you can do to prevent saltwater damage to your hair. Here are a few tips:
– Rinse your hair with fresh water before swimming. This will help remove any build-up of salt or chlorine on your strands.
– Apply a leave-in conditioner or oil before hitting the beach or pool. This will create a barrier between your hair and the water, helping to protect it from damage.
– Avoid using hot tools on salt-water-damaged hair. The heat will further dry out your strands and make them more susceptible to breakage.
– Use a deep conditioning treatment once a week to help replenish lost moisture and nutrients.
– Get regular trims at the salon, every 6 weeks.
Products That Help With Beach Hair Damage
One of the best things you can do for your hair is to use a leave-in conditioner or mask. A good leave-in will help to hydrate and protect your hair from further damage. It’s also a good idea to use a deep conditioning treatment once a week. This will help to restore moisture and elasticity to your hair.
