While leave-in conditioner is key to spritz in your mane pre-ocean, Victoria has a genius (and free!) tip: Simply douse your hair in salt- or chlorine-free water. Why does it work? "Your hair is porous like a sponge, and if that sponge is already full of water, it will absorb less of the water you're about to get in," she explains. It's one of those "why didn't I think of that?!" ideas, isn't it?
If you've already stepped out of a body of water and feel like your strands need some SOS, never fear. Victoria has some post-swim tips for you, too. Just click on over to xoVain to read 'em all and keep your hair in tip-top shape this season. (xoVain)
