3 Ways To Maintain Your Hair When You Travel

3 Ways To Maintain Your Hair When You Travel

Between now and 2016, holiday travel will be trending on more than just our social media feeds!  Are you going home for the holidays? Making a getaway to a snowy mountain resort or tropical island paradise? Whether you’re on board a train, plane or automobile this season, here are a few tips on how to make sure your hair stays fabulous!

Never Pack Full Sized Hair Products: It’s not a wise idea to bring full sized hair products on an airplane. The air compression compromises the product. Look for the travel sized version of your favorite Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave-In Conditioner, and if they’re not available, your nearest drug store will almost always carry empty 2 oz bottles that are perfect for travel. You can use them for makeup too!


Avoid headrest germs: I definitely recommend wearing a hat or hoodie when traveling on public transport. Planes are usually cleaned at lightening speeds to accommodate busy holiday travel. The head rests host many germs that will attach to your hair, and a hat or hoodie acts as a barrier to these germs.

There’s no doubt anyone’s hair would be flat after leaning on a headrest for hours on end. While a hat or a hoodie will protect your hair from germs, they’re not doing anything for your blow out!  To keep your look fresh during/after a flight, my suggestion for girls with long hair is to flip your hair upside down and create a sleek bun; but don’t set it too tight in order to avoid dents in your hair from the elastic. For the short haired ladies, bring a little spray bottle and add some moisture to your hair to eliminate flatness.

Keep it up!  When you’re lugging your bags through the airport, the last thing you want is to have your hair pulled by a heavy strap. Make it easy on yourself and put your hair in a bun or pony tail to avoid pain full pulls.

**The best way to prepare for a trip is to well, prepare! I recommend washing and conditioning your hair the night before to prevent tangles. I also recommend using a treatment spray, like Wella Color Preserve Detangler and Leave In Conditioner, and always bring a mini hairbrush or comb to smooth out those plane frizzies!
