The best part of summer is going to the beach. There’s nothing like having sun-kissed skin and beach hair. Unfortunately, more times than not, you leave for the beach looking like a goddess and end up looking like a hot mess. It happens to the best of us. Luckily, I’ve done some research on summer hair products that will combat the heat and salty air. This way, when 5 o’clock rolls around you’ll still look as beautiful as the moment you left your house!
The first step is to use a moisture-rich shampoo and conditioner. In the summertime, your hair needs a little extra TLC because of the drying effects of the sun. Redken’s All Soft Shampoo provides 15x more conditioning, which helps to keep your hair nice and moisture rich. It also offers a keratin-enriched complex to repair your hair and keep it healthy, shiny, and smooth. This shampoo hasn’t received multiple awards for no reason!
Speaking of awards, the All Soft Conditioner is no exception. With argan oil technology and Keratin Enrich Complex, this conditioner is designed to transform your hair. It’s great to use in the summertime because it keeps the hair frizz-free, shiny, and touchable. All of which are necessary before your beach visit!
Now that you have a solid foundation, it’s time for a great styling product, and we recommend the famed Moroccan Oil! This product transforms and repairs the hair to create a beautiful style for any hair type. With antioxidant-rich argan oil, shine-boosting vitamins, and strengthening proteins, Moroccan Oil leaves the hair healthy and manageable. After showering, apply a little throughout your hair and let it dry naturally. In fact, if you can get to the beach with wet hair that’s even better. The heat from the sun will cause the oil to penetrate the hair better.
Moroccan Oil is the perfect prep for any beach hairstyle, and it’s also one of the best-kept secrets for touchups on the beach. After a swim in the ocean, apply a little bit of oil to your hair and then let it dry. While salt water can give your hair a beautiful wave, it also dries the hair out. Moroccan oil will help to keep your hair moisturized and frizz-free.
If you’re more of the type to throw your hair back, Bumble and Bumble’s Leave-In Conditioner is perfect for you. After you shower, work a little through your hair, pull it back in a loose bun, and head out. When you let your hair down later, you’ll have shiny, frizz-free waves.
Now that you have the tools to create a beautiful hairstyle, enjoy your day at the beach! Also, be prepared to get multiple compliments. Just because you’re surrounded by salty, humid air doesn’t mean your hair has to suffer. You can achieve a look that’s just as gorgeous as a hair day in zero humidity.
