How To Beat Frizz On The Beach This Monsoon

Posted on July 20, 2016 by Beach Bum @ The Beach Company | 0 Comments

Women don't ask for much on holiday. But a beach that looks like it's out of the Bacardi commercial, fruity cocktails, and shiny hair that makes us look that we've come straight from the salon! Here are some of the tips from our crew at The Beach Company 

  • Keep your hair covered on the beach as sun rays can be so damaging.
  • Use a treatment once a week on your trip. Apply it in the day, cover with a hat and let the warmth from the sun help the ingredients penetrate the hair follicle.

  • Don't just rinse hair at the end of the day. Give it a thorough wash to rid it of salt and chlorine.
  • Less is more. Don't over-style your hair in the evenings, a clever use of plaits or headbands can make holiday hair look great.
  • A dry set of rollers can add body and smooth out frizz, while hair oils can also calm hair down.

  • Prevention is better than cure. Always try and protect your hair as once it is damaged it can't be repaired. If you like to sunbathe, use a baseball cap.
  • If you have your hair done every six weeks, make sure you get it coloured two-and-a-half weeks before your holiday. That way you won't have roots and you'll be ready to get it done as soon as you get back.
  • The first thing I do when I return from holiday is book a hair colour, blow dry and manicure. Then I can go back out on the shop floor again.

Washcare for your Swimwear

Posted on July 06, 2013 by Beach Bum @ The Beach Company | 0 Comments

Many people don't properly take care of their swimwear. Furthermore, it’s common for people to overlook or simply disregard the washing and care instructions found on the inside tags :) This almost always leads to the wearer’s disappointment and/or dissatisfaction. Whether you spend 500 or 5000 rupees on a swimsuit, taking care of your swimwear the right way is completely fundamental to its longevity. Follow these steps and you’ll be able to enjoy your beautiful swimwear for many years to come.

  1. Know that chlorine can ruin your swimwear. Make sure to frequently check your pool and hot tub's chlorine content. If it is too high, the excessive amount of chlorine can break down the spandex of the swimwear, which will ruin the shape of your swimwear. Also, too much chlorine can accelerate fading of the fabric.

  2. Steer clear of rough surfaces. Sitting and/or rubbing against textured pool decks and any rough edges can ruin the smooth and luxurious texture of your swimwear.

  3. Avoid getting excess lotions and oils on your swimwear. Sunscreen, tanning oils, and cosmetics can be harmful to swimsuits. Make sure to rinse and wash your swimwear as soon as possible if you do.

  4. Rinse your swimwear in cold water after each wear. By rinsing your swimsuits in cold water, you will help remove the excess salt and chlorine. This is an important step to take before washing.

  5. Avoid washing swimwear in electric washing machines. Although your washing machine may be set to cycle gently, it could still be way too rough. Washing machines can ruin the shape, fabric, and padding, as well as any delicate embellishments, stones, or beading. Therefore wash your swimwear by hand in cold water; warm water is acceptable too. Always use a mild soap that is meant for delicate fabrics.

  6. Gently squeeze the water out of your swimwear after washing. Be gentle and do not wring or twist your swimsuit roughly, as this could ruin its shape.

  7. Do not dry your swimwear in an electric dryer. Similar to electric washing machines, electric dryers can be too rough for the fragile material of swimwear. In a shaded and well ventilated area, lay your swimsuit flat out to dry. By laying it flat, you will diminish the appearance of wrinkles and creases.
