Healthy Hair Beach Day Tips for Every Hair Type

As temperatures rise, so does the amount of damage the sun does to your hair. Summer is coming and the best way to dive into it this year is by planning. Summer is the season hair most notably dries out and experiences breakage. The cause-and-effect result from high temperatures from the sun beating on your hair for extended periods. For a visual, imagine sun-kissed hair lightened by the sun. Although sun-kissed hair is the most requested in-salon color, just as bleach strips the hair of its pigment, the heat of the sun does the same to your hair. If you use OLAPLEX in your hair color, why wouldn’t you use it daily while exposing it to environmental damage?


Look, the most important thing here is to have a fun, safe summer, but that doesn’t mean you have to do so with damage! OLAPLEX can protect and rebuild your hair all season long, and the steps you need to take are more accessible than you think. Just like you apply SPF onto your skin for protection, you can use OLAPLEX on your hair to mitigate the damage from the sun. OLAPLEX Nº.7 Bonding Oil protects against UV rays, heat to 450º f, adds shine, rebuilds bonds, and moisturizes your hair. Your beach day prescription is to apply this throughout your hair as protection. Now, the amount you use is entirely customizable depending on your hair’s texture. For fine hair, start with a drop or two. The more coarse your texture is, apply more. You know your hair best, especially when it has too much product, so apply as delicately or liberally as you see fit.


If you leave the house with wet hair before the beach, there’s an even more effective step you can take by combining OLAPLEX Nº.6 Bond Smoother with Nº.7. Bonding Oil. Nº.6 helps eliminate frizz for up to 72 hours, which is essential for those hot summer days where the hair is looking for flyaways to singe and damage. Simply cocktail Nº.6 and Nº.7 into your hands and apply throughout; applying the same ‘less is more’ method when using on fine hair and more for coarse textures.


Using OLAPLEX protection when you’re out in the sun will leave your hair healthy throughout the season. Remember, recover from any damage incurred by applying weekly OLAPLEX treatments! Find our summer prep guide here for more intensive beach day prep and recovery.
