Default What to do when swimming

How do you fix your hair when you're going to the beach? I was thinking about twisting it up, but i don't know how well that holds. Do you put anything on it?

ouidad's summer shield is AMAZING for beachy curls- it protects it from sun, wind, ocean keeps it soo soft and tangle free...

i normally put a braid of 2 in my hair at the beach to avoid knots



i wish it was summer now =(

I put in a thick conditioning cream, then loosely French braid.

wet hair first. put in mixture of coconut, jojoba and shea butter oils. put on silicone bathing cap. Swim. Cowash after. i swim daily all year in chlorine, my hair is fine. it is very protective for hair. i put this stuff in my hair when at the beach too.
