When I go to the beach, I don’t always prep my hair for the drying ocean water that ruins my hair. It is not the end of the world, if you have a protective style or didn’t have time to prep with conditoner. Here is what I did.
- Don’t wait to Start: I started on my hair as soon as I got home because I knew my coils will tangle up. I put my hair in 6 sections and deep conditoned with Suave Almond and Shea Butter conditioner. I was very generous with this conditioner because I wanted to coat every strand. I deep conditioned with heat for about 30 minutes.
- Cowash: After rinsing, I Cowashed with Shea Moisure’s Coconut & Hibiscous CoWash Conditioning Cleanser to clean my hair from sand and dirt from the beach. I made sure to get my scalp as well. I also left some of it in for moisture, my hair was very dry.
- Styling: I put my hair in chunky twists using Shea Moisture’s Coconut& Hibiscous Curling Gel Sourrle. It was a quick and easy style and this product will lock in moisture if I keep the twists in for more than a day or so.
That was wash day. The point is to not wait to wash if you didn’t prepare. Deep condition for moisture and Cowash for cleansing. My hair was happy that I did this.
-I hope this helps! Let me know in the comments beach lovers!
