7 Must-have items to bring with you to the beach on National Beach Day

 7 Must-have items to bring with you to the beach on National Beach Day

National Beach Day is upon us on August 30th, and it’s almost your last chance to get out and splash around. Take full advantage of the opportunity to relax in the sun and sip tropical cocktails while the surf licks at your toes. Just don’t forget about your hair.

The sun, sand, and saltwater can do loads of damage to your hair and undo all the care you’ve given it for the last several months. You certainly don’t want to miss out on the beachy fun, but you want to keep your hair hydrated and healthy. 

Luckily, you can do both. It just takes a little extra care and planning. 

Packing for a day at the beach

In addition to all the other supplies you’ll be bringing with you, these hair supplies could save the day. Not everything is right for every person, so make sure you pick the ones that suit your hairstyle best. 

1. Sunscreen

Your scalp can burn and suffer damage just as easily as the rest of your skin can. This is why it needs protection when you spend time in the sun. 

But it’s not just your scalp that’s at risk; the sun can be very damaging to your hair, too. Your hair helps protect your scalp so that it can be more at risk than your skin.

You can spray sunscreen directly onto your hair and scalp to get that broad-spectrum protection you want, but that typically causes your hair to look limp, and it can cause other problems. 

Instead, opt for haircare products that have built-in sunscreen for constant protection and ingredients that are designed for hair health.

2. Big beach hat

Go one step further, and cover your hair with a stylish beach hat. Not only does a great beach hat protect your hair, but if it’s big enough, it can protect your face from sunburn and premature aging, too.

3. Hair mask

Douse your tresses in a mask that moisturizes and nourishes to build strong and healthy hair that’s perfectly hydrated. Try the Hair La Vie Masque, and you will walk away from a day at the beach looking like you spent it at the spa. It’s really that good at moisturizing and nourishing your hair.

4. Conditioner or leave-in conditioner

When you’re in the sun, your skin and hair have all the moisture leached out of them. To combat this, you need a powerful conditioner on your side. 

The Hair La Vie conditioner is perfect for preparing for your beachy vacation and repairing the damage. It can also be used as a leave-in conditioner to keep your hair soft all day long.

If you want all-day moisture but a lighter hand, try N°77 Leave-In to soothe your sun-damaged locks without product build-up weighing you down.

5. Wide-toothed comb

No brush should touch your hair when you’re spending a day in the sun. Instead, use a wide-toothed comb to manage wind-blown knots and sea salt matted curls. Use your comb to work out straggly hair and to evenly disperse conditioner at the beach.

6. Serum 

Sometimes you need to take your hair repair to the next level. Luckily for you, Hair La Vie Serum is ready to come to your rescue, and it even comes in a handy travel size for your beach bag. 

This nourishing blend of oils loads your hair up with protein for strength, moisture for softness and manageability, and silk amino acids for touchable brilliance.

7. Damage-free hair ties

Finally, pack up a few hair ties so you can pull your hair back, twist it up, and create an effortless look that speaks to the season. Using damage-free ties gives you the styling versatility you want without causing weakness or breakage.

Final thoughts

These essentials are key to keeping your hair looking selfie-ready at the beach and beyond. They let you enjoy the sun, sand, and surf without suffering afterward. It’s the perfect way to get that golden glow without fear.

The great news is that these products are not just for the gals; they work just as well for guys and even for beards. Thoughtful hair products with the right ingredients can transform anyone’s hair from dry and drab to elegant and enviable. If you put in the effort, your hair will certainly reward you.
