Top 5 Haircare Tips for Curly Hair at the Pool or Beach

Top 5 Haircare Tips for Curly Hair at the Pool or Beach

Summer days at the pool or beach can be incredibly fun, but they can also be draining on our hair. The combination of chlorine, saltwater, and sun exposure can leave your curls dry, frizzy, and dull. 

We rounded up our expert haircare tips to keep your hair healthy and beautiful while enjoying all your summer activities.

1. Pre-Swim Protection

Before diving into the pool or ocean, it's crucial to protect your curls from the harsh effects of chlorine and saltwater. Saturate your hair with fresh water and apply a generous amount of our Hydrating Curl Cream or a protective oil like argan oil. This creates a barrier that helps prevent your hair from absorbing too much chlorinated or salty water, which can strip away natural moisture.

2. Rinse Immediately

After swimming, rinse your hair thoroughly with fresh water as soon as possible. This helps remove chlorine, salt, and sand, which can all contribute to dryness and damage. If you have access to a shower, use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo, like our Curl Care Shampoo, to cleanse your hair, followed by a deep conditioner to restore moisture.

3. Deep Condition Regularly

Swimming can strip your hair of its natural oils, so it's essential to incorporate deep conditioning treatments into your routine. Use a deep conditioner or hair mask once or twice a week to replenish lost moisture and nourish your curls. Look for products with hydrating ingredients like mango butter and avocado oil.

4. Protect from the Sun

The sun's UV rays can be just as damaging to your hair as they are to your skin. To protect your curls, wear a wide-brimmed hat or scarf when you're lounging by the pool or beach. 

5. Gentle Detangling

After a day at the pool or beach, your hair might be more prone to tangles. Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to gently detangle your hair, starting from the ends and working your way up. Apply a detangling spray or our Curl Care Conditioner to make the process easier and minimize breakage.

By following these expert tips, you can enjoy your summer activities without compromising the health of your hair.

With a little extra care and attention, your curls will stay hydrated, defined, and gorgeous all season long.

Happy summer days, hermanas!
