The secret to post-beach hair

Prefer to spend your lazy summer days beachside, poolside or otherwise near a body of water? While a daytime swim can be refreshing for you, it's a little taxing on your hair. The salt and time spent under the sun can leave your locks feeling salty and parched. Got post-beach plans? Here's what we recommend.

What you do before you slip into your bikini is just as important as after. Come summer, it's wise to step up your deep conditioning hair routine so that any damage is minimised from the outset. Try the after shampooing and gently squeezing excess moisture from the hair. To apply, take a 2-3 inch section and work the mask in, focusing on the lengths and ends. Repeat until all the hair is covered, then leave for the recommended time and rinse thoroughly. During summer, keep this up once per week.

After stepping out of the ocean, you'll end up with a really messy, textured mane. But in a good way. At the same time, it will probably feel dry to touch, so always apply a protective oil after a swim. contains both grapeseed and avocado oils and will restore shine and gloss to your new post-beach 'do. Use only a few drops and work into the mid-lengths and ends.

If your hair is especially fine and, post-swim, looks raggedy and lifeless, there's a solution for that too. After working in the oil, reach for a texturising hairspray that will give body and shape to your summer mane. Messy Cliche French Girl Hair Hairspray is our pick for a glamorous, nonchalant tousle that looks effortless (and virtually is).
