Summer is almost here and we’re pumped to start doing all the fun things warmer weather brings us, like picnics, vacations, and heading to the beach.

But no matter how much fun the beach is, the truth is that it can take a toll on your skin and hair. 

We’ve obviously got you covered when it comes to keeping your skin safe, but the sun, sand, and water can also dry out, weaken, or otherwise damage your hair.

Keeping your skin and hair healthy and looking its best is why we’re here. So today, here’s our round up of the BEST hair products for the beach and post-beach day.

Beach Babe Must-Haves: 9 Best Hair Products for the Beach 

Best Products for Frizzy Hair at the Beach

In Common Magic Myst

If you find your hair gets super frizzy at the beach from all of the wind, salt, and water, then this magic elixir may be just what you need. It’s a 4-in-1 product that works as a leave-in conditioner, a detangler, a smoothing balm, and a heat protectant. It seals and smooths hair cuticles AND it also tames frizz, taking your hair texture from dry to the smooth and shiny locks you were ALWAYS meant to have. Plus it smells amazing.

How to use: Mist on damp hair and comb through for effortless style, prep, and protection. Mist on dry hair to refresh or touch-up on the go.

Claw Clips

Did you know saltwater can cause dry hair? In fact, saltwater pulls the moisture from your scalp and hair, stripping them of their natural oils. This tends to make frizzy hair frizzier, which is not the move. 

One of the best ways to protect hair at the beach is to keep it OUT of the water entirely. And since wet hair ties can get caught up in your hair and cause more breakage, we’re steering away from them. That’s why a claw clip is a great option for you if you have frizzy hair. The goal is to pin your hair up and then keep it out of the water entirely. 

DAE Prickly Pear Hair Oil

This Prickly Pear Hair Oil was made for frizzy hair problems. With the killer 1-2 combo of moringa seed oil, which boosts keratin production and restores moisture to the strands, and also prickly pear seed oil, known for conditioning strands to be soft, silky, and healthy, you literally can’t go wrong. Moreover, this potent blend offers a natural solution to tame frizz, nourish hair from within, and promote overall hair health, making it a must-have in your hair care routine.

In addition, it’s vegan, sulfate-free, cruelty-free, and free of synthetic colors. So if you’re on the market for non-toxic beauty finds, this one’s for you. 

How to use: Use it as a super-smooth finish on dry hair, a breakage remedy on damp hair, or an overnight hydration treatment.

This product also contains Vitamin E, which protects against free radicals and oxidative stress. Plus, it’s super moisturizing due to its ingredients of organic coconut oil and jojoba oil.
