Our skin and hair needs special care round the clock, and this becomes especially important when we’re travelling. Exposure to changing environments and harsh climates can significantly damage your hair and hence put a damper on your trip. The next time you are travelling, use these simple tips to protect your hair from unnecessary and unwanted damage:
Protect Your Hair from Sun Exposure
The sun is probably the cruelest when it comes to damaging hair. Continuous exposure to UV rays robs hair of their luster and moisture, leaving it looking dull and dry.
When out in the sun, make sure to cover your hair with a loose scarf or cap. You can also apply some UV protection cream or spray such as the ADV Hydration Cream on your hair before stepping outside. These precautions will protect your hair from being damaged.
Do NOT Stress Too Much about Hairdos
Avoid exposing your hair and keep it loose all the time when you are travelling. Instead, you can tie your hair in a loosely twisted bun or braid. Besides looking stylish and trendy, these hairstyles will protect your hair from dust and limit sun exposure. Additionally, you can easily accessorize by adding a cool bandana or headband to keep your hair out of your face, especially if the weather is hot. Carrying bobby pins and hair clips with you will be a good idea as well as those will come in handy when you really need to tie up and manage your hair.
Going Swimming? Treat Your Hair with Oil/Moisturize
Do not worry! It is not that hard to choose. You can use your regular hair conditioner, argan oil, and coconut oil – anything that suits your hair-type – by decanting them into smaller travel bottles. This regime will keep your hair conditioned and safe from salt water, allowing it to retain its moisture.
However, using natural products for damaged hair are preferred, as strong chemicals may further damage your hair instead. Consider using PHS Hairscience Travel ADV Nutrition Set to ensure that you can carefully care for your hair with premium products that are free from harmful additives even when you’re travelling.
Use good quality products
Although budget-friendly moisturizers and conditioners are good alternatives when it comes to travelling, the damage they can do to your hair may be irreversible.
On the other hand, if you really have no other option but to use these products, simply apply a little on the roots and ends, and rinse thoroughly. Do not massage or lather through your scalp, especially if you have an oily scalp. This will prevent your scalp from becoming oilier and keep your hair from further damage and knotting.
Do NOT forget to Brush
Never ignore your regular hair-brushing regime as tangled and knotted hair breaks and are damaged more easily. Take some time out of your busy itinerary and brush your hair nicely, paying extra attention to those tiny strands of hair on the nape. Start combing in small strokes from the lower half to the bottom of your hair instead of from the roots in order to prevent your hair from becoming knotted. To tame frizzy hair, use a wide-toothed comb on damp hair, or after you apply conditioner.
