5 Beach hair products to pack for your summer getaway

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.


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 ’till you make it.

2. Curl cream

Why: Because let’s face it: nobody wants flyaways. The combination of sun, sea and wind will most definitely leave your hair wanting to “flying away” like it’s nobody’s business. But don’t worry: you can help prevent this unwanted disaster by applying some smoothing curl cream over your natural curls and coils.

Try: The Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie is one of the best beach hair products to take with you. This will smooth and define your curls with a very flexible hold and a beautiful shine. And to top it off, it infuses your hair with moisture and hydration. Double win!


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. Natural oils are also known to nourish and moisturise hair, which is exactly what you will need for a vacay at the beach.

Try: The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil is a fantastic option for every hair type. This oil is so lightweight that is won’t weigh your hair down. But it is made with keratin and natural oils (including marula oil) that will leave your beach hair looking healthy, and feeling amazing.


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 it feel 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 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?)

5. Glitter

Why: 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: Don’t forget to pack VO5 Strong Hold Spray 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.
