3C/4A Hair on the Beach in Savannah

I'm going to Tybee Island at the end of this month for my birthday. This is the first time since I've been completely natural that I'll be going. What precautions do I need to take for my hair type to avoid any damage. I've also colored my hair in the past week.
I would recommend u take a moisturizing conditioner...like Tresseme Naturals with u. And u can us that to co wash and leave a tiny bit in for added moisture.

At least thats what i do when im out of town or sleeping over at my friend's house. I also bring my gel so i only have two products when im away.

Just discovering my hair likes protein!

For coloured hair use products containing coconut oil, hydrolysed protein, ceramides and panthenol. For UV protection wear a hair or a fabric product like a Buff, colour treated hair is at higher risk of damage than virgin hair.

Couple of ingredients can help reduce (but not eliminate) sun damage

Using a barrier with a proven SPF is the only way to protect from UV bleaching, same as with skin. You can coat your hair with a high factor waterproof sunscreen or use a tightly woven/ UV resistant fabric. For reference 93% protection in a fabric is equivalent to sunscreen SPF 15.

Should protect from the water a little, but conditioner oils and butter will give little protection from UV damage: unrefined shea butter and coconut oil have an SPF in the region of 2 if you use a thick enough layer, leave in conditioner no SPF at all. Water magnifies and reflects the rays so can increase UV exposure.
