Celebrity Hair Tips: How to Protect All Types of Hair at the Beach

Celebrities seem to always look effortlessly chic, even in the beach's harsh hair conditions. But don’t be fooled, they’re not unprotected! Sam Villa, Founding Partner of the Sam Villa® brand and Education Artistic Director for Redken 5th Avenue offers tips for beauty in the sun and the sand.

To Keep Hair Bright and Shiny
To help prevent locks from fading, put 4 drops of Redken Satin Wear 02 in an 8 oz. water bottle and spray on hair before hitting the waves. It helps seal the cuticles so hair doesn’t absorb as much salt water. Feel free to reapply as needed, it also adds a luxe shine.

For Colored Hair
To protect color, apply Redken Color Extend Shine Enrich – it has UVA and UVB filters for anti-fade protection. It helps seal split ends and the heat from the sun helps penetrate cranberry oil and Ceramides for optimal conditioning.

Have Fine Hair?
Fine hair is a whole other story. Don’t saturate it with conditioner, it will weigh hair down. Scarves and hats are a great option.

Want Beachy Waves like Vanessa Hudgens?
Spray hair with Redken Curvaceous Wind Up, braid hair and sleep on it. In the morning, take braids out and run fingers through. Take the bottle to the beach to recharge curls throughout the day - just spray and scrunch for instant texture!

Wind Protection
And if riding in a convertible where the constant whipping of hair in the wind dries it out and causes major split ends, tie hair back to reduce damage.

Now just spread out to suntan and look pretty!
