Tips For Great Hair On-The-Go
Travelling isn’t great for your hair for several reasons. First, it often requires that you to sit in one place for a long time without the hair tools you need to freshen up your look. There’s also the effect that the sun has on your hair when you’re in warm-weather climates. Here are some tips for great hair on-the-go.
What to take with you on long flights
Before you leave for the airport, make sure your hair is well-conditioned and run hair oil like Fructis Sleek & Shine Moroccan Oil through it in advance. Tie your hair up in a braid to keep it out of your face, and to keep it neat and tidy throughout your journey. You can also use a bandana to tie your hair back, protecting your hair when you’re in an enclosed space for hours at a time.
It’s a good idea to take some dry shampoo with you, particularly for long flights. This will keep you feeling clean and fresh even after you’ve been seated in the same chair for hours. A wooden brush is another essential tool for preventing your hair from becoming static en route.
It’s a good idea to consider ahead of time what you’ll need when away from home. Hotels often provide shampoo, body gels and conditioners, but bear in mind that the quality is not always that great and that they are more likely to contain chemicals that won’t do your hair or skin any good. Take your own hair care products with you so that your hair still gets the attention it deserves when you’re travelling.
If you’re flying abroad and taking carry-on luggage only, remember that you can only bring liquids in 3.4 oz containers or smaller. If you go to a pharmacy you can pick up empty 3.4 oz bottles you can transfer your favorite products into these smaller containers.
Remember, depending on where you’re travelling, the quality of the water can differ considerably from that at home. Don’t allow your hair to suffer from hard water by making sure that you pack a nourishing conditioner like Fructis Triple Nutrition Conditioner.
