4 Ways To Protect and Restore Your Hair at The Beach

Your hair called; it needs you to know it’s calling out SOS from frying in the sun. It may sound melodramatic; however, summer and winter months are most notable for environmental damage on the hair. Environmental damage is the kind of damage that gets forgotten about, as its effects are often gradual. By gradual, we mean, you know, three months in the sun then come September you notice the split ends and dryness. This summer, let’s skip to the good part by keeping the hair healthy all summer long!

OLAPLEX No.0, No.3, No.4, No.5, No.6, and No.7 all rebuild bonds in the hair and are easier than ever to apply while you sit on the sand! Each product works it’s own magic, from an intensive reparative treatment to heat protecting shine-boosting touch-ups. Pick them all or choose your favorite to ensure you greet the Fall with the healthiest hair possible. 

No.0 & No.3 Treatment: The No.3 Hair Perfector has been a long time favorite for rebuilding hair while at the beach for OLAPLEX Ambassador, Bianca Hillier. Bianca loves to leave the treatment in her hair while on the beach or poolside. Though the No.3 works marvelously on its own, the new OLAPLEX No.0 launched just in time to amplify your bond-building treatment this summer. Apply No.0 to the hair, leave on 10 minutes, then layer No.3 onto the hair for another 10 minutes at minimum and enjoy until you’re ready to shampoo and condition out! 

Pro tip: When opting to treat the hair at the beach with No.0 and No..3, opt for cute wet look hairstyles! Wearing your hair in a braid, braid crown, high bun, or cornrows are fabulous ways to ensure your look is just as dynamite as the bond building happening. 

No.6 Leave-In: A very low maintenance hair prep before a day at the beach is styling your hair with the OLAPLEX No.6 Bond Smoother leave-in styling cream. Start with a dime-sized amount and either comb through the hair or apply throughout and scrunch for a textured look. That’s it! No.6 rebuilds the bonds in the hair, moisturize, and eliminate frizz for up to 72 hours. Applying No.6 at the beach is the easiest way to ensure you’re rebuilding hair while keeping it tame and conditioned! 

No.7 Bonding Oil: Need a touch-up? No.7 is the perfect companion to keep tucked inside your beach bag! Saltwater and chlorine can drain the hair of its moisture, leaving it feeling crunchy and frail. Apply No.7 as needed throughout the hair for glorious shine and bond rebuilding under the sun. 

No.4 & No.5 Shampoo and Conditioner: Post beach cleanse, repair, and conditioning. Wash the sand and water away from your hair with No.4 and No.5. Now washing your hair is something you’ll be doing already, doing it with No.4 and No.5 elevates the process from washing to bond rebuilding. Pro tip: a day under the sun can severely dry out your hair, leave No.5 on a little longer in the shower for a mini conditioning treatment to rebuild bonds and moisturize!
