Hey ladies, do you have ‘travel more’ on your 2020 resolution list? We thought so. With the New Year in full swing, getting those plane tickets early always seems like a good idea. That being said, we don’t always take into account the minor things that could turn our smiles upside down during our trip – one of those things being the state of our precious tresses. Between the change in the atmosphere and the constant travelling, taking care of our curls can be a little difficult. That being said, with the hairstyles mentioned below, you’ll have no problem enjoying your hard-earned vacation without your stubborn strays getting in the way.
Braiding your hair is a clear no-fuss method of taking care of your locks during a trip. Easy to maintain and pretty to photograph, your braids are gonna be the centre of attention in all the pictures you take. If you are going with this look, then African Pride Black Castor Miracle Extra Hold Braid, Loc, Twist Gel is one that you should add to your curls. This brilliant concoction of black castor and coconut oil is perfect for smoothing frizz and flyaways while boosting shine for longer-lasting styles. It works on keeping those stubborn edges in place and we totally recommend trying it out.
Tying your hair in a bun is a great and easy way to ensure that your curls are off your neck while also still keeping them classy. To make this hairstyle work, wrap your hair around your fingers once, then secure it in place with a hair tie and voila! You’ve got yourself a quick, easy, fabulous style. Clean hair is always a good idea when trying out this style. African Pride Moisture Miracle Honey & Coconut Oil Shampoo provides your curls with a bang of moisture while also gently cleansing your hair and repairing the damage done to your curls due to the change in the climate. We tried it when we went on our last vacation and it definitely saved our curls from ruins. We cannot leave home without it now.
We’ve mentioned this a few times now, but we’ll mention it again just to get our point across – a change in the climate can do bad things to our hair. In such a case, it is always important to douse our curls with a little extra love and what better way to do that than by wrapping them up in the tight embrace of a silk head wrap. Silk head wraps are a great way to help your curls maintain their moisture and bonus – they’re quite the neat accessory too. You can style your wrap any way you want but we recommend a simple silk knot. Stylish and functional, this hairstyle has benefitted us greatly on our trips and we know it’ll do the same for you too.
Trust us ladies – with the travel-friendly hairstyles mentioned above, you are sure to have no trouble taking care of your curls on your upcoming trip.
