No matter where you go, fabulous hair is a necessary accessory to accompany your bikini-clad body.
In a hot and humid beach, you can use a wet and wavy (sew-in) hair weave to protect your hair. The maintenance is surprisingly low. You can just wear it wavy after you cleanse and towel dry the hair. Once hair dries, you can use a flat iron or use flexi-curlers to straighten hair for a bouncy spiral look if you want to look chic for a night of dancing. You can go from poolside to night club with minimal time spent on your hair!
4 Tips for maintaining your vacation hair style
1. Wet your hair before swimming.
You should saturate your hair with water and add a coat of conditioner prior to entering the water, which can help to protect your hair from the discoloration and drying damage that salt water and chlorine can cause. Hair can only absorb so much water. Therefore, it’s best if it’s not chlorine or salt water.
2. Cleanse your hair immediately after you take a dip.
After swimming, you can’t simply ring the excess water from your hair. Both salt and chlorine will strip the hair of essential lubricants. Therefore, it is recommended to wash hair with a conditioning shampoo or do a co-wash (cleansing with conditioner only) to prevent drying the hair out any further.
3. Let hair weave or hair extensions air-dry.
4. Wrap your hair weave or extensions in a silk/satin scarf before going to bed, preventing breakage and making styling easier the next morning.
