How should I take care of my frizzy hair at the beach?

Drier and more fragile than other hair types, Afro hair needs to be pampered, especially when sea water, sun and sand increase the amount of external damage inflicted on your locks. From treatments and styling to accessories, we take a look at how you can take care of your curly hair at the seaside.

A hydrating leave-in treatment

This is an essential product for hair which tends to get dehydrated. It compensates for the damaging effects of sea water and the sun which exacerbate the dryness of your curly locks. Choose one with UV protection to shield your locks whilst constantly nourishing the hair fibre all throughout the day. Handily, you can pop it into your beach bag just like sun cream, so you can do touch-ups on dry hair or damp locks after going for a swim. Not only does it treat your hair, but it also prevents minor hair issues such as knots forming and poorly shaped curls.

A hairstyle to help prevent split ends

When dry hair gets damaged, the tips fork and form split ends which must be trimmed. Afro hair is even more subject to split ends as it is finer than other hair types. To avoid getting your hair cut when you come back off holiday, go for a hairstyle which protects the tips of your locks (the most sensitive part) from sea water, sun and wind. Opt for a chignon bun which will protect your hair's tips as the locks are wound around themselves. The extra benefit? It is the perfect beach hairstyle for keeping your hair off your neck and staying cool!

An accessory to protect against UV rays

To tame unruly curls and shield against harmful rays, you cannot beat a hat or a scarf tied around your locks when the sun is at its hottest. It is down to you to choose the ideal headgear as a finishing touch to your summer outfit. If you opt for a panama , go for a cotton one rather than straw to prevent your frizzy locks from getting stuck in the woven material. Otherwise, opt for a silk or satin scarf which will protect the hair fibre from static electricity.
