Look after and Love you hair, wherever you are….

The more expensive product - but it really is GOOD.

The more expensive product - but it really is GOOD.

As surfer girls, we spend so much of our time in the sea and in the sun, which constantly puts pressure on and dries out our hair. We see the damage as split ends, and coarse, brittle, dry hair that breaks easily. I try and do lots of different things to keep my hair looking healthy and growing strong, so here are a couple of tips. These are also great tips for you girls in the freezing cold right now who need a way to brighten up their hair and add shine to give that healthy glow 🙂

Coconut Oil once a fortnight:  Once or sometimes twice a fortnight, I leave coconut oil in my hair over night for a great conditioning treatment. Obviously putting in a lot of coconut oil into your hair makes it looks greasy, so this is why I let it soak in over night and then shower and wash my hair again in the morning. It works best applying it to wet hair, and always try and chose a natural brand of oil or coconut extract that comes looking like a bar of soap. A great place to check if they have it is your local health food store, they normally stock organic oil like this. If not, there are plenty of options to buy it online :-).

Comb through your conditioner!!!: Easy peasy, and makes the world of difference to your hair every time you wash it. Haha, I have only just started doing this after about 20 years of washing my own hair, and I can’t recommend it enough!

Argan Oil: (Also known as Moroccan Oil). This stuff is like GOLD DUST to me. Sometimes I use it in a similar way that I use the coconut oil – as an over night mask. But I also use it as a serum. A tiny coin sized amount combed though the ends of your hair is a great way to treat it with goodness after every wash. It’s filled with so many great things for your hair that will make it feel super soft and look shiny and healthy. There are many different brands selling Argan Oil products at the moment, though I was lucky enough to get on a surf trip this year to Morocco and pick up about 10 bottles of it from the local markets there. My favourite serum however is the Organix Penetrating Oil. It’s awesome and not super expensive like some of the other brands.
