Traveling is a lot of fun, but it can play havoc with your beauty regime. Of course, you want to look your best when you never know who you might meet or what you might end up doing! Hair can be one of the toughest things to take care of when you are traveling around, so here are some helpful tips to keep yours looking just how you like it when you’re on the move or in a new location.
Use A Leave-In Conditioner Before Flying
The air on a plane can really dry you out, and this includes your hair. Help it stay nourished during a flight by using a good leave-in conditioner before you board, paying extra attention to the ends. You may also want to apply an anti-frizz serum to ensure your hair will look smooth on arrival.
Pack Some of Your Current Hair Colorant if You Are Going Away for More Than a Month
Refresh your hair color before you go and then keep a box of the dye you are using in your checked luggage (you won’t be able to bring this as carry-on).
This is because even the same brands have slightly different ranges for different markets, and you may find it hard to get an exact match where you are going. This is most important if your hair is dyed blonde or red and you are going somewhere where these are not common natural colors, such as Asia or Mediterranean Europe. Blonde and red dyes will be available, but there won’t be as much choice and you may struggle to match your current shade.
Black or dark brown are the easiest colours to find anywhere in the world, so if you want to skip this step consider going for a dark colour as your travel hair colour. There are some great ideas for black and brown hairstyles at mynewhairstyles.net.
Find Some Quick and Easy Styles That You’re Comfortable Doing on the Go
Practise some simple hairstyles that don’t require a lot of tools before you go, so if you do get invited to anything formal or want a practical up-do for activities, you can put together an appropriate look, even if you don’t have a lot of time and all your products and styling tools to hand. Braided styles can be good, or pretty buns.
Dry Shampoo is Your Friend
If you plan to switch locations a lot and spend a lot of time on planes or trains, being able to easily refresh your hair without needing to take a shower can make you feel a lot more confident. A good dry shampoo is a must. However, because you won’t be able to bring this as carry-on luggage, the next best thing is to carry some talc and use this in the same way if you are flying.
There is no reason to feel like you have to sacrifice good hair days for travel adventures if you follow these tips!
