I often will put a headband in while my hair is still wet - it drys decently and keeps it out of my face. Or a baseball hat

I'm lucky- my hair loves salt water so after being in the sea I just let it dry!

Me three! Just discovered it a couple months ago. Hope it holds true this weekend! *crosses fingers*

Otherwise, I just go with a claw clip and a twist sort of 'do.

I wish I was that lucky! My hair freaks out if I go near the beach. I didn't have one good hair day while I was in California, and I didn't even swim! It's the salty air or something that doesn't agree with me.

I usually put my hair in a braid because it's such a tangly mess otherwise.

My hair likes the humidity/dampness of the beach as well. I was buying a beach hair product for a while.

cjc- After you get back from the beach do you just wash and style as usual.

My main concern is drying time...

I rinse the condish out and put leave-in in, add gel, plop for 10 minutes and let my hair air dry. I never use a dryer.

My beach hair dried pretty quickly (relative to normal) this weekend after I scrunched the water out with paper towels. I was pretty surprised.

Just got back from a week in Florida, everyday on the beach.

After swimming, I would just bend over ( very popular in a bikini) and scrunch in one or two scant palms of Generic Paul Mitchell The Cream. No touching after that until dry. If I went into the water again, I would just scrunch more in after that. No frizz and looked natural after scrunching. HTH

I used to rinse the salt out with fresh but this year I just put The Cream in over the salt water and it worked out fine.

Don't forget the sunscreen for the body, face and everyplace there is skin.

Have fun.

Don't forget sunscreen if you part your hair. Man, I hate getting a burnt scalp!
