beach weather

Weather condition: Salty air

Summer wouldn’t be summer without trips to the beach. But moist air + salt water = bad news for your hair. So, “the best thing to do when you go to the beach is to wear a hat to protect your hair from the sun and wind,” says Hawkins.

OK, I know — you’re going to the beach, your hair is supposed to look beachy, not covered up. So here’s the next best thing: apply an oil treatment to your hair in the morning (try Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment, $19.50). “Since oil and water don’t mix, when you go in the salt water or pool, the oil will literally repel the water and protect your hair from getting damaged,” says Hawkins.
