Beach Vacation Packing List

Salty ocean water, chlorinated pool water, and time spent under the sun all lead to excessive drying of your hair. Maintaining essential hydration not only keeps hair feeling soft and resilient, but it can also visibly reverse the appearance of sun-damaged strands.

To ward off dryness, wet your hair down and apply a leave in conditioner before entering the water. Double up on your moisturizing efforts and apply a hair treatment, then wrap hair up in a top bun to beat heat damage and maintain sexy beach hair.

Here is our Beach Vaca Packing List
