In the eternal battle between Sahel and your hair, let your hair be the champ this summer season! Armed with these beach time tips, your hair will get through hours under the sun unscathed (or at least less damaged!).
Go for Gentle Products
We know it can be tempting to use more heavy duty sulfate shampoos when you’ve been in pools and the sea, but trust us on this one. Opt for sulfate free shampoo – it’ll still cleanse your hair without stripping it of its moisture. If you want curl definition, try our Curl Wonder Natural Shampoo infused with soothing Aloe Vera Extract and nourishing Avocado Oil. If you’re looking for more hydration, the obvious choice would be Moisture Bae Natural Shampoo formulated with moisture-locking Shea Butter and Moroccan Argan Oil.
Because these shampoos are so gentle, you can wash your hair more often than usual during your trip guilt-free.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Your hair will need extra love and care – and so much more hydration. Your hair might feel drier than usual when you’re having fun on your break because it’s exposed to more external factors. To combat this dryness, you need to deep condition your hair every washday. Hair masks and deep conditioners can be time consuming, and we don’t want you wasting any of your previous vacation hours, so we made our in-shower treatment, Curl Wonder Deep Conditioner, with that in mind. All it takes is 10-15 mins in the shower and voila. Your hair will feel quenched, soft, and extra shiny.
Protect Your Locks
The sun’s out and we’re all oh-so-grateful, but just like our skin needs SPF, your hair needs protection from the heat if you’re planning on spending hours outside. Our Curl Wonder Leave-In Conditioner and Moisture Bae Leave In Conditioner are both formulated with protective ingredients that’ll coat your hair shaft and act as a barrier between your hair and the sun. The Leave-Ins will also protect your hair from the salt water and chlorine in pools, not to mention, they’ll make styling your hair a breeze.
Style n Protect
Protective hairstyles are your best friend during the summer. You can go for braids, buns, twists or even play around with hair accessories. Even if we do say so ourselves, our Wander Satin Scarf and Bae-cation Satin Scarf will have you looking fabulous on the beach and give your hair that extra layer of protection. Get creative with it and play around with different hairstyles – but don’t forget to share them with us!
Now that we’ve covered the bases, we may (we definitely did) have made your dreams come true with our all new travel kits. Our Curl Wonder and Moisture Bae-cation Kits feature our sulfate, silicone and paraben free hair care products and a locally designed beautiful satin scarf all packed in a gorgeous holographic bag that’ll look bomb under the sun. Go with the glow and cop yours now!
