The right hair care for the beach and beyond
Jun, 2021

The temperature is right for a day at the beach. But how do you care for your hair and make sure it is not damaged by the salt water? Meraki gives you a quick guide to the products you need to keep your hair hydrated before, during and after a trip to the beach.

We all know the upside of a trip to the beach. Perfectly tousled and wavy hair, a sun-kissed look and a wonderful texture. But it does not last that long and soon after comes the feeling of dry, dull and frizzy hair. Salt water is not that kind to your hair – even though it does give you a gorgeous and matt look. To get the most of the vitamin D and vitamin sea, use the right products to keep your hair hydrated and healthy.

Before the beach

Keeping your hair in good condition every day is the best weapon. Make sure your ends are trimmed and use our hair mask regularly. On days when you want extra moisture, use our hair serum on the go.

Add a conditioner and comb it through your hair before you go to the beach. That way your hair will get the benefits of your conditioner instead of absorbing the damaging salt. Another tip to consider is simply wetting your hair in the shower or with a bottle of water at the beach. Your hair will soak up the fresh water first instead of the salt water.

After-beach care

Your hair will need plenty of moisture after a dive into the ocean. Rinse it with water to get rid of the salt. When you get home, use our moisturising shampoo, followed by our deep conditioning hair mask. It uses shea butter, coconut oil and provitamin B5 to hydrate and repair each strand of hair from the inside out and to make it smooth and healthy. Do not forget to lock it in with our moisturising conditioner to complete your hair care routine.

To smooth your ends and detangle your hair, add a few drops of our hair serum. Take it with you whenever you need soft and shiny hair that is moisturised with organic argan oil, coconut oil and jojoba oil.

Take a hydrating shortcut

If you have no desire to dive into the ocean this summer, you can still get the coveted beach look with a sea salt spray. Our mattifying sea salt spray keeps your hair hydrated with provitamin B5 and nourishing extracts from buckthorn. Spray it into damp hair and let it air dry for a natural look or get added volume by blow-drying it. A short cut to defined and texturised hair.
