Tip #1: Twist & Pin

Begin by gently combing through your hair with the Mason Pearson Detangling Comb to ensure it’s smooth and free of tangles. Then, warm up a pearl-sized amount of the Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel in your hands. This is both a texturizing cream and a rich treatment to tame unruly hair and nourish the hair fiber. Working section by section, twist your hair away from your face and secure each twist with a clip or bobby pin. After you have allowed this to set, let the hair loose; this technique creates soft waves with minimal effort and can be done on both damp and dry hair.

Tip #2: Beach Waves Hair in a Bottle

Embrace the natural texture of your hair by spritzing the Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray throughout damp or dry hair. Bring it with you to the beach to enhance your beach waves or create them at home with this finishing spray. After sprayed evenly throughout the hair scrunch and tousle gently to create beautiful beach waves without the need for heat styling. 

Hair Protection

Sun exposure can cause color fading and weaken the hair follicle. Before you step onto the beach, shield your hair from the elements using leave-in treatments. 

Tip #3: Hydrate your Hair

For summer, we recommend transitioning to hydrating and strengthening products to combat the challenges of pool swims and beach lounging. The Miriam Quevedo Black Baccara Hair Multiplying Shampoo & Multiplying Mask. The shampoo uses rose stem cells to prevent hair growth disturbances and reverse hair fiber damage caused by chemical, thermal, environmental and mechanical aging. While the mask works from the hair follicle to the fiber, this mask stimulates growth and delivers rejuvenation, strength and hydration for healthier hair. For added care under the sun, use the Multiplying Mask as a leave-in treatment. Secure your hair with a Slipsilk Scrunchie instead of an elastic to avoid creasing and to protect delicate hair. 

Tip #4: For Stronger Hair

For those seeking strength and length, the Hair Alchemy Collection from Oribe is a must. One of our favorites from the collection is the Fortifying Treatment Serum which can be used on its own or with the rest of the Alchemy collection. It is a light-weight, fast-absorbing serum that creates a protective veil around each hair fiber to improve tensile strength and elasticity while preventing breakage. 

Tip #5: Use Microfiber Towel

Unlike traditional towels, microfiber towels gently absorb excess water without causing friction or damage to the hair strands. Whether you are drying off after a swim in the ocean or just getting out of the shower, investing in a microfiber towel is a small change that can make a difference in your hair health. The Iles Formula Hair Turban Towel is generously sized and gently dries hair fast while reducing static, frizz and breakage.
