Air Dry Products/ Beach hair/ Beach to dinner


I am planning a beach trip and i’m finding that I have to go straight to dinner from the beach. There will be outdoor showers. Any tips on how I can go from messy, smelly, salty beach hair and get it to look nice, soft, and smell good for when I go to dinner? I don’t have time to go back to the hotel and properly shower/change/blow dry. I have naturally straight/slightly wavy hair. Doesn’t get extremely frizzy. Slight highlights as well. Please recommend any products/routines 🙂 

Re: Air Dry Products/ Beach hair/ Beach to dinner

@Lizzy10125 Some ideas to consider:


1.  Braid it before you go to the beach and just leave the braids in for dinner, or take them out after showering for a wavy look.  You might need to add a little oil or serum if you take the braids out, just to make it look a little more polished.  Before braiding, you could use an airdry cream if you plan to take the braids out before dinner, for hold and frizz control.




2. Use a leave-in conditioner beforehand to help protect your hair from salt and wind, use more to detangle before showering, and then put in an airdry cream after showering.
