Ensuring that your hair remains in top condition when you’re at the beach or on holiday can be tricky.
The beach and the sun aren’t always kind to our hair, so it’s important to be prepared to keep your hair looking its best.
We have put together some of our top tips to make sure that your hair is beach and holiday ready!
Holiday hair protection
Prevention is more effective than the cure, as they say. Making sure that your hair is protected prior to your visit to the beach is one of the most effective ways to keep your hair looking healthy and vibrant!
It’s recommended that you get your hair cut regularly, and a quality cut before you take your trip will help your hair stay happy, healthy and looking great.
There are also products that can aid with sun protection, making sure that it doesn’t become damaged.

Take a good brush!
When packing, it can be easy to forget some of the essential items that you use every day. A good quality brush can help to de-tangle some of the toughest knots, particularly with sun-damaged hair.
Wearing a hat can prevent some of the harmful UV rays damaging your hair too much, whilst also protecting your hair from the salty sea air. If it’s a windy day, a hat can prevent sand from becoming tangled in your hair as well!
Try to prevent your hair from getting wet too often
While not always practical advice, trying not to get your hair wet too often can help to aid its health and appearance.
It can be tempting to spend a significant amount of time in the pool or the sea, but try to be conscious of the number of times you get your hair wet in a day, as this can impact its health.
One top hair care tip is to wet your hair with fresh water from a shower prior to taking a dip in the sea or the pool, as your follicles soak up the freshwater first, preventing damage from the salt or chlorine in the water.
This is a particularly useful tip for those with dry hair or hair that has been lightened chemically!
