Ladies, how many of you worry about how your hair will react while on vacation? Do you agonize over having the right products, in the right amounts, and if the weather at your destination will cooperate? I go through this dilemma every single time I travel. Might I add that I only travel with a carry on, so full size bottles are out of the question. Just when I think I have my traveling hair routine down packed, reality strikes once I am on vacation. I had a quick beach getaway to the Bahamas for Memorial Day weekend, so I implemented a new hair routine to fight the heat and humidity coming up against me.
For starters, I prepped my hair by washing it three days before my trip. My curls really shape up after day three, which by then I would have been in full vacation mode already. Two days before the trip, I did twists on my hair to lock in moisture and avoid some frizz. I ended up getting some beautiful definition from twisting my hair, therefore I repeated it again the night before the trip.
I knew that I could not match up to heat and humidity ahead of me, therefore I had to get creative. I brought accessories and also rocked creative updo’s once I noticed the frizz was getting out of hand. I doubled up on my hair products and I could not leave the spritzer bottle at home.
As soon as I touched home, I applied a deep conditioner as part of my wash routine. The sun was shining in all its glory this weekend and although I’m thankful for my tan, my hair felt fried.
Overall, I am satisfied with the results of paying a little more attention to my hair while away. Keeping in mind that this was only a weekend trip, I feel like I won this battle! My biggest hair challenge now is managing the curls on longer trips. What about you? Do you have advice you’d like to leave in the comments?
