1. BEACH TO BAR
There’s only one trick to beautiful, straight-from-the-ocean hair and that is to protect the hair, like you would your skin. Simply, prep the hair with a product that provides a UV filter, prior to sun exposure. The other benefit to this is that the product will stay in your hair well after you have been at the beach, helping condition the hair throughout the day.
