Whether you’re headed to your community swimming pool, or hitting the sand for some beach fun, don’t let your hair keep you from enjoying yourself. If you’re looking for some hairstyle ideas that you can wear to the pool or beach, we have you covered.
But first, let’s talk about how you can protect your hair from the chlorine and salt if you plan to wear your hair out. One technique is to saturate the hair with water and conditioner before you go swimming. The idea is that once the hair has absorbed the water and conditioner, it is more difficult for it to absorb the chlorinated or salt water. After you are done playing in the water, be sure to cleanse and condition your hair. If you were in water treated with chlorine, be sure to use a shampoo designed to remove chlorine.

Hi Joanna. I have been trying to go back natural for the past 3 months now but it is taking too long. I really need back my hair the way it used to be before I relaxed it. Is there any pro
ductiI can used to hasten it? Or do you think I should go bald and start growing it from scratch? Is there any product I can use to let it grow fast?
Products don’t make hair grow faster, you just need better length retention.
Hi, I have super coily hair and I’m going to the beach soon. I want to know how to keep my hair protected and still stylish for the beach. I’m kind of looking for an easy hairstyle to do on my own, that takes a short amount of time and little hair products. Can you please let me know if you have any hairstyles in mind for me?
