7 beach hair do's and don'ts

Do: Battle Flyaways With Smoothing Spray

Preparation is the key to keeping wind-tossed locks on point during a day at the beach. Prevent frizz and fight flyaways while oceanside by spritzing your strands with a polishing serum. An easy spray-on formula will allow you to reapply throughout the day, even if your hands are sandy!

Don’t: Let UV Exposure Warp Color-Treated Hair

Unless you want your freshly highlighted hair to take on a new hue and straw-like texture, shield color-treated locks with a sulfate-free protectant spray. Heat, UV exposure and the high saline concentration of ocean water have the capacity to corrode color and damage dyed hair -- which is oftentimes already more susceptible to breakage. Look for a multitasking formula that nourishes the cuticle while providing styling support.

Do: Nourish Curls With Special Shampoo

Curly-haired girls have an especially challenging time combating frizz in high-humidity environments. Keep the bounce and add definition to naturally curly strands by using special curl-enhancing beauty products. The easiest way to cater to your unique hair type is to use an oil-infused curl-nourishing shampoo and conditioner.

Don’t: Bare Your Hair

A sunburned scalp can lead to itchy, dandruff-like flakes. So regardless of whether your hair is color-treated, you’ll want to pack a hat! A wide-brimmed one will serve double duty to keep your hair, face and scalp from harmful rays, in addition to providing an excellent opportunity for oh-so-chic snaps.

Do: Replenish Locks With a Hair Mask

If half the beach comes home entwined in your hair, simply massage in a reparative conditioning treatment mask after you shampoo. A nutrient-rich hair mask will reverse damage by hydrating, restoring and soothing stressed tresses.

Don’t: Brush Out Windblown Knots

Using a brush to hack away at stubborn seawater and wind-induced knots almost always leads to breakage and split ends. Instead, spritz strands with a hydrating detangling spray before gently loosening knots with -- and this is the key -- a wide-tooth comb.

Do: Embrace a Bohemian 'Do

Save that complex updo for a formal function and let your hair down -- well, figuratively, anyway. Choose an effortless undone bun or piece-y plait instead. As long as you adequately fortify your tresses before hitting the sand and set aside sufficient time for post-beach TLC, a bit of wind and sunshine will not wreak havoc on hair.
