It’s no doubt that being a woman and a traveler at the same time is wonderful. However, we ladies have so many things to take care of in our body and one of which is our hair. Nobody wants an unpleasant and unhealthy hair, right?
To be honest, taking care of my hair while traveling can be frustrating sometimes. Since we travel from one location to another, we also experience drastic changes in weather and this alone can affect your hair! It’s not just that. Pollutants are also something that can greatly affect the health and beauty of our hair.
Traveling is a challenge for keeping our hair looking good and healthy since we don’t usually go to a hair salon in the places we visit. So, we have no choice but to look for ways that are convenient for us that will suffice our hair. In this blog article, I will be sharing some hair care tips for travelers.
Hair Care Tips for Travelers
Plan what hair care products to bring. Yes, it is always about planning. When we travel, we usually have limited number of things to bring so I suggest that you bring your hair care products in sampler sizes or in travel bottles. Just make sure you have enough product that will last during your trip. Don’t forget to bring hair elastics, bobby pins, and hair clips as well as these may come in handy.
Prepare your hair before swimming in pools and beaches. The water from pools and beaches can react to your hair negatively. There are cases that blonde hair turns green when dipped in water with chlorine so you better be careful with that. Ask a specialist or search in the internet how to avoid this. Salt water in beaches can dry your hair, too. Make sure you condition them whenever you get out of the water.
Tie and protect your hair whenever you’re in hot and humid areas. You must not prolong staying under the sun without protecting your hair as this may cause discoloration, dry and brittle hair strands, split ends, and even thinning. Use a hat or a bandana to protect your hair while travelling in hot and humid places. Make sure to tie your hair as well to keep your neck cool.
Brush your hair. This is a common tip but I’ll include it anyway. Let’s say, you became so busy with travelling and exploring new things that you forgot about taking care of your hair. Never leave your hair un-brushed for a week. We don’t want a tangled hair that causes breakage, right?
Invest in one or two best products. Sometimes, we go to the cheapest alternative for hair care products but this may compromise quality. If you really want to have a good-hair-all-day trip, buying a really good product is an option for you. These products may include hair essential oils, hair dry shampoos and/or conditioners, hair masks, or hair treatments.
To add for people who experience balding or hair loss, did you know that you can also have an option to have a modern hair restoration that will make you have a natural-looking, highest-quality hair?
