Spending a weekend at a beach may rejuvenate you after a long week’s work. However, you may not be aware of how spending a day at the shore can damage your hair. Salt water may detox your skin but it leaches out moisture from your hair resulting in parched and brittle hair strands. Further, the damp breeze is known to be a style wrecker, often making your locks puffy. If you have died your hair, salt water can harden your locks.

If you are on a sabbatical traveling the world, you would be exposed to frequently changing climates.
