Protect Your Hair at the Beach

You need to make sure you protect your hair at the beach. Just as you protect your skin against the sun, it’s important to make sure you protect your hair. I’m all about making sure I do what I can to keep my hair healthy during the summer.

Did you know that the sun can really damage your hair? It’s something that not many people think about, but it’s true. Your hair can get sun damage so you want to protect your hair at the beach.

If you’re someone who takes a lot of time and energy worrying about sunscreen and sun block, I encourage you to add taking care of your hair into your summer time beauty routine, too. It’s super important to make sure you’re doing everything you can.

Many of us head to the beach and to the pool throughout the summer. Whether you’re a bathing beauty at the beach or by a pool, wherever there’s sun – your hair could get damaged in the hot summer heat.

The beach is a big spot because you’re sitting for hours in the hot sun, so you want to make sure you’re doing everything you can to protect your hair at the beach. I know that when I’m at the beach the sun is crazy hot and everything is hot to the touch. Your hair is the same, too!

What should you do? How can you protect your hair at the beach?

1. Wear a hat – This seems like such simple advice, but it’s true. The best way to protect your hair at the beach can be as simple as just wearing a hat. Your hair won’t be on full display for the hot summer sun. It will be covered and stay under a protected base.

I love to wear straw fedoras at the beach. I feel like they’re breathable, lightweight and super easy to toss on and go. You can also buy them super cheap at various retail locations, too. You don’t have to spend a ton of money.

2. Invest in an Umbrella at the Beach – Another simple tip, but one that is true! If you’re heading to the beach for the day you should grab an umbrella. I love being able to sit under an umbrella, and protect your hair and body from the hot summer sun. It’s easy to do and a smart summer piece of advice you should be doing anyway!

3. AVEDA Sun Care Protective Hair Veil – You can always use some incredible products that you can find. AVEDA has their hair veil that works perfect on your hair. It’s a great way to protect your hair at the beach.

This is so popular and sold out in many places right now, too! A lightweight, water-resistant UV defense mist that forms an invisible screen to help protect hair from sun exposure to minimize damage and dryness. For all hair types. It’s $30!

4. Leave-in Conditioner – One trick you can do is leave your house with wet hair, along with conditioner in it for the day. It’s almost like you’re deep conditioning your hair for the day! It’s an easy way to keep your hair moisturized. The best part is that any conditioner will do!


If you get the beach and find yourself with dry hair from the sun or go into the water and the conditioner washes out, bring some along with you! You can just head to one of the beach showers to rinse your hair and re-apply the conditioner. It’s all about keeping it moist and moisturized for the day.

5. Sun Bum Sunscreen Scalp Spray SPF 30 – Another product to apply before you head into the hot summer sun. I think one of the best things to do is have a product on hand that you know will work and will protect you.

Sun Bum’s Sunscreen Scalp Spray delivers a lightweight, nourishing mist to help protect your scalp from the sun while not weighing down your hair. Works with all hair types and for all occasions.
