sea making hair a laughing stock
I have recently started spending a lot more time in the sea. I'm having a great time but my hair is not. It's getting really dry and fluffy, in fact it looks and feels like candy floss/fairy floss.

I have tried putting olive oil in my hair before I go in, it's helped a little but if I'm in the water for more than half an hour even my own kids are laughing at my hair .

I rinse it really well when I get out and put conditioner into it before I even leave the beach so it's in ok condition generally, just trying to figure out what to do with it whilst in the sea/beach.

I'd try tying it up but to date all that's happened is the sea has ripped the elastics out of my hair.

Really? Wow, my hair goes even more curly and defined when I'm in the sea! How weird....
Trying leaving in more conditioner than you usually would, maybe washing it more is making it go fluffier? Have you changed anything in your hair routine? If you have then that might be your problem!

Hope I helped,

I have a similar issue: when I am in the water it is super fluffy, and when I get out, it immediately starts to loc. Like, serious dreadlocks. I love dreadlocks, but I don't think they are a good style for me. I have found 2 things that help me. First, I French braid my hair, usually in 2 really tight braids. You look like you have silky smooth hair, so you might try using some of the extra-grippy hairties to tie them up with. It works much better to keep everything in place than a ponytail or bun. Also, I keep conditioner with me, and anytime I will be out of the water for a long time I rinse off in the beach showers, finger-detangle, and take on a bunch of conditioner. That usually helps it not get set in locks and tangles.hope that helps!
