Hair Care Tips To Follow On Vacation
It’s vacation season! Summertime is the perfect time to take some time off and enjoy a vacation. Wherever you choose to spend your summer vacation, keeping your hair looking its best isn’t always the easiest accomplishment. Let’s face it…when we’re on vacation most of us tend to let our typical beauty routines fall to the wayside. We’re not judging, it’s just that vacation mindset we fall into. To help you keep your hair looking its best, and avoid struggling to get back on track when you get back home we’re dishing the best hair care tips to follow on vacation.
Bring Your Own Products
We get it…you want to save room in your suitcase when traveling. As tempting as it is to use the hair care products that are provided by hotels, resist the urge. Most of the products provided by hotels tend to be pretty harsh and drying on the hair, because they’re not formulated for any particular hair type. Instead of using those products, it’s best to bring your own on vacation. Using your own hair care products will keep your hair healthy and on track with the products you use at home.
Add More Moisture
When traveling to places that have warm weather and humidity, our hair tends to take a lot of stress on. These weather elements cause a lot of dryness to our hair’s strands, really soaking out a lot of the natural moisture. To keep your hair protected and healthy during your travels, experts suggest using a leave-in conditioner throughout your vacation. Anytime you wash your hair, apply a little leave-in conditioner to really lock in the moisture and add a little extra. In addition, if you’re in the ocean, pool or just spending a lot of time outdoors during your trip you’ll want to add the leave-in conditioner after enjoying those activities. Since all of those activities tend to cause dryness in the hair, applying a small amount of leave-in conditioner will help add moisture.
Use Minimal Heat
Styling your hair with heated styling tools is great, but it can also cause a lot of stress on the hair. We get that you want to feel great about your hair while traveling, but experts suggest using as little heat as possible while on vacation. Since our hair is exposed to a lot of different elements we’re just not used to when traveling, avoiding as much stress from heat as possible will help keep your hair healthy on your trip. You don’t have to skip heat altogether but find ways to cut back on the heat. For example, let your hair air dry instead of using a hair dryer and continue using your curling iron or flat iron. Making little adjustments like this to cut back on the heat will make your hair very happy!
