Beautiful commercials in which a girl runs along the coast, and her hair flutters in the wind like a mermaid - these beauty stories work great in the virtual world, but in reality, alas, everything is not so careless. UV radiation, high temperatures, drying salt, and this is just a short list of all the challenges your hair will have to face. How to prepare for them, says our expert, top stylist of BRONZE & BEAUTY salon Artem Mkhitaryan.
1. Shorten your hair
Your hair will be exposed to a variety of factors: sea salt, chlorine, sunlight, and all of them will not make the best contribution to the health of your main pride. Their effect will be especially negative on already old hair, split ends. That is why stylists especially advise beach lovers to freshen up their hair before leaving for the sea. So, you will achieve two goals: firstly, protect your hair from a depleted look, and secondly, give healthy hair a chance to rest with you.
2. Moisturize and Saturate with Proteins
To shine throughout your rest, your hair must receive the highest possible amount of moisture and protein in advance. This means - include in your beauty routine protein and moisturizing hair masks, sprays, oils (read also: "Olive oil for skin and hair: 5 beauty life hacks"). Regular hair care using these products will help them get out of any beauty disasters - with dignity and without irreparable losses.
“When going on vacation, pay attention to your hair so that the aggressive rays of the sun and sea water do not affect it destructively. A few days before leaving for the sea, you can do the care with the ZIP hyaluronic reconstruction from NYCE or the essential oil treatment from NYCE - they will create a kind of protective barrier for the hair. If you are upset with thin hair, use sealers and choose a creative haircut,”advises Artem Mkhitaryan.
3. More natural
Playful waves, immediate styling with a touch of casualness - in summer you can let your hair run freely. Hair-cut hairstyles are put off until winter: take advantage of this moment and tune into a natural style before you even get on the plane!

At sea, bouffant or artificially twisted ends will look at least out of place. But if you are not without it, we advise you to take note: “In the summer, it is recommended to use light styling products so that they do not weigh down the hair and leave a sticky feeling. If you have porous and curly hair, you can use oil-based products, and if you have European hair, it is better to leave the oil-based everyday products until fall. And, if possible, give up styling with the help of hot stylers”, - comments Artem.
4. Assemble the cosmetic bag correctly
It's a shame to forget at home your favorite remedy that makes your hair so silky and shiny - especially when there are days ahead under the scorching sun rays and the attacking effects of sea salt crystals. Here's one tip - pack your beauty suitcase in advance.
“Be sure to save space in your vacation makeup bag for hair care products. Use leave-in treatments, reliable sunscreens and two types of shampoos: a cleansing shampoo to breathe, and then either nourishing or moisturizing, which is individually selected based on the needs of your hair and scalp. When choosing a conditioner, be guided by the length of your hair."
