SeaMade: The Lux Mermaid – Hair Care Edition A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison

Does ocean and sun worshipping have your hair snapping like Instagramming teens following Ryan Gosling? Although the salt and sun give us surfer girls those effortless blond highlights, they also take a big toll on our manes. Luckily, there is a completely natural, inexpensive hair remedy that I swear by. Coconut oil is the most effective hair treatment I have ever tried. Deep conditioning salon treatments can work great, but I need something consistent that won’t break my wallet and isn’t filled with chemicals. By slathering my hair with coconut oil before jumping in the ocean, worries of dehydrated, tangled hair evaporate. I haven’t cut my hair for nearly a year and split ends are minimal thanks to the power of the coco. I even break out the blow drier and straightener on occasion, but a simple coco oil hair mask and self-trim the next day clean those pesky splits right up.
