Surfer Girls especially those who teach surfing lessons every day in Hawaii, have special challenges when it comes to having nice hair. While the sun does it’s job and bleaches it blond it also dries it out beyond belief! On top of that the salt water and pull from the waves create added stress that would cause a super model to throw a cell phone at anyone. So what’s a surfer girl to do? After 20 plus years of surfing and teaching surfing and always looking like I had just stepped out of the ocean I decided to consult an expert – Emilia Perry. She’s a true North Shore Surfer Girl, Pipe charger on both a surfboard and bodyboard, a model and hair dresser at Salon Atlantis in the Haleiwa Market place – this is what she suggested.
1. Put coconut oil in your just before getting in to the surf -this is actually an ancient Hawaiian custom.
2. Wash with super good conditioner – I use a product made my Goldwell, it’s expensive but worth it.
3. Braid your hair before going in to the water.
4. See a professional at least once every 3 months for a trim,
If you follow this advice consistently your hair condition will improve and that’s that!
