Beauty Guest Post: 5 Essential Hair Care Tips While Traveling

Taking care of your hair is something that takes a bit of time, even if you’re a guy. It also usually requires a few products such as a hairdryer, mirror and other large items that are not really practical to carry around when travelling. Taking care of your hair when you’re travelling is much harder than taking hair of it when you’re at home but you can have great hair wherever you are. Just follow these hair care tips and you’ll be travelling the world in style in no time!

Pack high priority items – This is something that you really need to keep in mind when you are travelling. You will need certain hair care products but it is very easy to pack the wrong ones or ones that won’t be of much use to you on your travels. You need to prioritise and make sure you only pack the things you really need. This should include shampoo and conditioner, and you can also pack a few other bits and bobs such as a comb or brush.

Have a hair cut – This is another great tip. Before you go on any long journey, it makes sense to have a decent hair cut before you go. Get it cut a bit shorter than usual so it lasts longer and you’ll be good to go. It will also make looking after your hair easier too.

Wear a hat – This is essential if you are going to be outdoors a lot, especially in hot and sunny countries. The sun can quickly bleach your hair if you’re in it too long so it is essential to make sure you have a decent hate to keep your hair safe. It doesn’t have to be anything expensive, just practical.

Stay hydrated – If you’re travelling in hot countries, then this is extremely important. You need to ensure that you drink enough water to make sure that your hair doesn’t dry out. It will also help flush out the toxins in your body. It’s recommended that you drink around 8 glasses of water per day, but we’d say up to 12 if you’re in a hot location.

Tie your hair up – By keeping your hair tied up, you will be able to make sure that your hair stays as clean as possible. Having it in a ponytail will ensure that any dirt doesn’t clog up the scalp and cause problems for your hair. It’s a simple but effective tip.
