Shake your head to let some of the sand fall while you vacuum at the same time so that the falling ones are caught before they find another home in your hair. It’s the perfect way to get as much sand out of your hair prior to washing so give the vacuum a whirl and see how much easier you make your after-beach clean-up!
What to do about Saltwater/seawater
Saltwater is known for making wavy hair curly and curly hair coily so many curly girls love it! Despite the benefit, saltwater or seawater can dry out your tresses so be smart while at the beach.
Remember to rinse your hair with tap water and add a heavy oil like olive or coconut to your tresses to help protect it. Add some cheap conditioner and try keeping your hair in twists, braids, or a high ponytail to combat the sure to follow tangles. Now, go have a blast!
When you are done having fun at the beach make sure to wash your tresses ASAP! Get started with a good rinse for a few minutes to truly get all the elements out of your tresses. Don’t just rely on the shampoo and conditioner to do the job as rinsing can help remove saltwater and any lasting remnants of sand out. Even if you can’t get to your shampoo and conditioner right away make sure to at least rinse your strands if nothing else.
Shampoo with a gentle but effective brand and don’t skimp on the conditioner and deep conditioner. Use the best products (and even spend a few extra dollars if you can) to really bring your hair back from the seawater.
Stay clear of the heat for a while so your hair gets a break especially if you are going to be in the water and sun a lot the rest of the summer. It’s OK to have fun this summer but remember all of this beach bumming can be hard on your hair so pamper them with great conditioners that are made to moisturize, hydrate and revitalize your strands.
Protecting your hair is not just a winter routine. As we find our summer winding down and we get ready for fall and school, don’t forget that changing seasons may mean changing your hair routines. Don’t skip on the weekly deep conditioning, monthly protein conditioning or the protection from the sun. Sun damage is real so have fun in the sand, sun and water but be smart and do it right.
