5 beach hair products to pack for your summer getaway

Sun, sand, sea and wind? No problem: our section of best beach hair products will ensure you still look good on vacay!

Going on a tropical holiday this year? Lucky you! But while you’re soaking up the sun by the pool or playing volleyball on the beach, you’ll want your hair to look and feel good, right?

Well, the good news is, you can have gorgeous hair every day on vacay – that is, if you pack the right hair products, of course!

So, before you jet off, have a read below to find out which beach hair products you should take with you on your summer vacay.

1. Sea salt spray

Why: They’re known for helping to create that effortlessly chic, lived-in beach hair look that we’re all after. If you don’t have natural beach waves, hair products like a sea salt spray will help you fake it ’til you make it.

Try: Spray VO5 Texturising Sea Salt Spray onto your damp mane and scrunch your waves for sexy, textured beach-ready locks. Trust us, this product will be your new go-to hair companion all summer long!

2. Anti-frizz cream

Why: Because let’s face it: nobody wants frizzy hair. The combination of sun, sea and wind will most definitely leave your hair wanting to frizz up like it’s nobody’s business. But don’t worry: you can help prevent this unwanted mane disaster by smoothing some anti-frizz cream over your tresses. Bye-bye frizz, hello smoothness!

Try: Apply VO5 Frizz Free Cream through the lengths of towel-dried hair before blow-drying to achieve a super sleek glossy finish. If that wasn’t great enough, the VO5 Frizz Free Cream comes with heat defence too, meaning you’ll have one less thing to pack.

3. Hair oil

Why: All of that exposure to the elements may leave your hair a little worse for wear. By using a hair oil, you can help to make your hair feel smoother and look shinier, as well as improve its manageability. Knots and tangles, be gone!

Try: Helping to reduce hair breakage, restore moisture and boost colour vibrancy, the VO5 Nourishing Coconut Hot Oil is a must-have beach hair product.

And the holiday hair benefits don’t stop there. The VO5 hot oil treatments help to remove chlorine from your hair, and the handy travel sized oils are coconut scented too! Because nothing screams holiday than coconut scents, right?

4. Dry shampoo

Why: Just think about how much you sweat while you’re sunbathing. Now think about how much of that sweat will be sitting on your scalp, making your hair look and feel greasy and icky. Enter: dry shampoo.

When most people think of beach hair products, a dry shampoo may not be the first thing to spring to mind, but trust us, a quick spritz will help to absorb all of that nasty sweat, while instantly refreshing your ‘do at the same time. Now that’s what we call a true beach “hairo” (hero, but for hair – get it?)!

Try: Use theVO5 Refresh Dry Shampoo to absorb grease and leave hair looking and feeling fresh.

Use on dry hair, paying particular attention to the roots and gently work the product through with your fingers.

5. Glitter

Why: Full Moon Parties to a trip to Playa d’en Bossa, beach parties can play a major part in your trip, so why not go all out with some hair glitter!

Whether you go for a subtle sprinkle along your parting or a full glitter bomb finish, there is no better excuse than a beach party to bring out the glitter.

Try: Create the ultimate party look with VO5 Hair Glitter. With 5 exciting colours available, there’s a shade for everyone.

Don’t forget to pack VO5 Fixing Spray For Glitter in your suitcase. Use in short even bursts over areas of the hair where glitter has been applied to help hold your style in place.
