How to Stop the Sun, Sea, and Pool From Damaging Your Hair


When you’re planning a vacation, it can be easy to focus on all of the relaxing, exciting things you’re going to see and do and forget about the practical aspects. However, it can be worth pre-planning how you’re going to take care of your hair and skin while you’re away, as often a change in place, routine and products can cause unwanted results. Check out these tips for caring for your hair, even if you’re heading to the pool or ocean every day of your vacation.

Protect Hair From Chlorine

Anyone who has dyed their hair blonde can tell you that chlorinated water can result in an unexpected green tinge. Even if your hair is entirely natural, chlorine can dry hair out and leave it looking frizzy and dull. It may be worth packing a swimming cap to take with you on vacation, or at least make sure that you have a nourishing, protecting hair mask to apply after your dips in the pool.

Use a UV Protecting Spray

There are plenty of options out there if you want to protect your hair from the drying, and bleaching effects of UV exposure. Pack a spray with UV protection to take with you on vacation, and spritz it over your strands whenever you know you’re going to be spending a lot of time outside in the sun.

Be Prepared For A Post-Holiday Haircut

There’s no doubt that spending time in a pool, in the sun, or in the sea can lead to increased dryness and breakage. Rather than booking your next trim just before you head off on vacation, why not try a post-holiday haircut? A trim and tidy-up will restore your hair to full health and remove any damage caused by the pool, sea, or sun.
