UV rays coming from the sun harm not just your skin; these are equally bad for your hair as these can make hair go dull, dry, brittle and faded. This is the reason your sunscreen protection should extend beyond hairline too. Similarly, seawater with all its minerals also leaves hair and scalp itchy and flaky. So you need to ensure extra care for hair too.
What you should do
● Use a sunscreen shampoo before leaving for the beach.
● Use a UV water spray on hair (and face) on the beach.
● Use a clarifying shampoo after beach day to get rid of deposits on scalp and hair.
● Apply a hair mask, later on, to give hair and scalp extra nutrition.
● Also remember: regular oiling and conditioning are always good for maintaining hair health.
Here are some quality hair care products we recommend to get your beach time haircare surfing smoothly:

Sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays are the biggest culprit behind skin’s aging. These are of two types: UVA and UVB. One tans and burns the skin on the surface; the other enters the skin’s inner layers to damage collagen protein that gives skin its youthful firmness. Together the onslaught of these can leave your skin tanned, red and wrinkled. Hence the first thing you need is sun protection.
● Applying a sunscreen serum after cleaning and toning your face. This gives double protection to your skin.
● Applying a broad spectrum and water-resistant sunscreen in suitable SPF count 15-20 minutes before you go out in the sun and to the beach. For your skin’s holistic care, it is better to choose a sunscreen with natural SPF ingredients.
● Reapplying every two hours if not getting wet. Repeat application in every 30-40 minutes if swimming, perspiring or towel drying is done with exposed skin.
● If you wear makeup and don’t want trickles and streaks on reapplying sunscreen, we recommend a spray-on sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum protection, spreads evenly and dries fast to form a transparent anti-sun, anti-pollution film on the skin. This also keeps your skin nicely hydrated and nourished.
● Other common sense beachside measures are sitting under a beach umbrella, wearing sunglasses and donning a wide-brimmed hat to minimize exposure.
