Sustainable Haircare: How to Prevent Sand from Getting Stuck in Your Hair

Picture this: You're enjoying a beautiful day at the beach, the sun is shining, and the waves are crashing. You're having a fantastic time until you realise that your hair is filled with sand. It's a common problem, but fear not! With a few simple tips and tricks, you can keep your hair sand-free and still enjoy your time by the sea. In this blog post, we'll discuss how to prevent sand from getting stuck in your hair, all while keeping sustainability in mind.

  • Pre-Beach Preparation

    The key to keeping sand out of your hair starts before you even hit the beach. Here's what you can do:

    • Apply Hair Oil: Consider applying a small amount of hair oil or serum before heading to the beach like our Extra Smooth Drops. This will create a protective barrier on your hair, making it harder for sand to cling to it.

    • Tie Your Hair Up: If your hair is long enough, tying it up in a bun, ponytail, or braid can prevent it from getting tangled with sand. Shop our Eco Hair Ties and Hair Fork.

  • Use Sustainable Hair Accessories

    Opt for sustainable hair accessories such as wooden combs, eco hair ties and upcycled hair forks. These eco-friendly options are not only gentle on your hair but also reduce your environmental footprint.

  • Shake It Off

    After a day at the beach, give your hair a good shake to remove any loose sand. This is a simple yet effective way to prevent sand from getting deeply embedded in your hair.

  • Rinse with Freshwater

    When you're ready to leave the beach, rinse your hair thoroughly with freshwater. Use a reusable water bottle to reduce plastic waste, and make sure you get rid of any remaining sand.

  • Dry Naturally

    Allow your hair to air dry instead of using a hairdryer. This not only saves energy but also prevents excess heat from damaging your hair. Try our Quick Dry Hair Turban for frizz free results. 

  • Use Sustainable Haircare Products

    Choose haircare products from sustainable brands that prioritise environmentally-friendly packaging and ingredients. Look for products that are free from harmful chemicals and gentle on your hair and the planet.

  • Brush Carefully

    Invest in a high-quality, eco-friendly hair comb with wide, gentle teeth- our bamboo comb is perfect for this! This will help you detangle your hair without causing breakage or damage.


Enjoying a day at the beach without worrying about sand in your hair is possible. By following these tips and incorporating sustainability into your haircare routine, you can keep your locks looking great while minimising your impact on the environment. So go ahead, embrace those sunny beach days, and let your hair flow freely in the sea breeze, knowing that you're doing your part to protect both your hair and the planet.
