Excited about that long due, well-earned vacay but super stressed about what that means for your natural hair? First of all, yay to you for embracing the natural hair journey, so to celebrate we’ll get straight to some tips on how to care for it especially since you’re up for some me time. We know, it can be super stressful, coz there’s a number of factors involved – the weather, the water, which style to opt for maximum protection, so on and so forth. So read on up, take notes if that calms your nerves some more, but be rest assured that these top travel hacks will have your back!
Arm yourself with the right hair arsenal to tackle weather conditions wherever you choose to vacation. Climate change has its own way of getting to your hair. We suggest you carry a scarf to protect your hair from the heat and a warm beanie for extremely cold conditions. Also don’t forget to double up on the deep conditioning with Profectiv Mega Growth Strengthening Deep Conditioner to fortify your hair. This would retain the moisture and keep your hair hydrated and healthy.
Try on a protective style for your vacation. It can be anything from cornrows and braids to twists. This works well for airplane travel as the long hours of travel and air can dry out your hair quite a bit. Make sure you maintain the moisture in your kinks and coils prior to adding on ‘em extensions. Protective styles are a great way to keep the frizz at bay on your tropical getaway where the air is more humid and work best for swim time as well. Darling One Million Hair Extensions is our choice to get travel-ready.
Carrying your hair essentials such as a mild shampoo and conditioner is important. Hotel products may not suit your hair type and can strip your hair off its essential moisture and natural oils. We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again, make sure you DC before leaving on that jet plane and we strongly recommend using Profectiv Mega Growth Deep Conditioner ladies! You’ll be thanking us so much, you’ll want to take us with you on your next vacay.
Carrying a tiny spray bottle with part water and part moisturising oils will take your mane places girl! Well, literally! It forms a protective layer around the hair shaft and shields it from external stressors such as heat and pollution. Trust us on this one!
