Homemade Recipe for healthy hair after all day at the beach
Sun-damaged hair after spending the whole day at the beach? It can be hard for surfer girls and beach lovers to maintain the hair healthy and shining due to sunlight and salt water.
I spend quite a long time living in the tropics and, over there, the sun is really strong. Result: my hair got damaged really quickly.
The majority of my time has always been in the water, catching waves and not caring too much about my hair. Hence they became visibly weak and started to break. Real Hay! Heaps of chemical beauty products weren’t helping me neither. So, what about try natural treatments instead?
My top pick product: Coconut Oil. Among all benefits of coconut oil, the one that interests us in this specific case is its property as sunscreen, blocking about the 20% of the ultraviolet rays.
If you plan to stay all day under the sun, you can use it as a leave-in conditioner for all day protection.
Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants and has antibacterial properties. When used on hair, it improves scalp health, fights infections, adds shine and reduces protein loss.
Twice a week I do a hair treatment with the oil: I put the oil on my hair from roots until tips, I brush my hair to remove all the knots, I leave it on for an hour, then I rinse and I wash my hair with a normal shampoo and conditioner.
The results are immediate: my hair become much softer, healthier and they really shine!
