If you have natural hair and are planning a vacation, you may be worried about how to take care of your hair while traveling. Traveling can be stressful, especially if you aren't used to it and aren't prepared for it. However, there are things you can do to make sure that your natural hair doesn't become damaged or unhealthy during your travels!
When you're traveling, your hair is going to be exposed to more than just the normal amount of stress. There are a lot of things that can happen to it while you're out and about. The best way to protect yourself from these things is by wearing your hair up or in braids or cornrows when you're in a humid location or sweating heavily.
Keep it out of the way: If possible, wear hats or headbands with ties that will keep all of your hair contained instead of letting it fly free like an untamed lion's mane (which can get really messy over time).
Keep it clean: It's important to remember to wash your hair, even when you're traveling. This will help keep it fresh and make the experience a little less stressful for everyone involved (especially if you have long locks).
Use a small travel size conditioner, detangler and leave-in cream or oil. These products are easy to pack in your bag, so they're great for traveling with! Many of your WÜL Haircare faves are available in travel-friendly sizes.
Wear your hair up when possible. When traveling in humid locations or sweating heavily (like if there is an activity like hiking involved), try wearing braids or cornrows instead of letting them down so that they don't get tangled up in each other while moving around all day long. Protect against sun damage by wearing hats/scarves during outdoor activities as well as applying spray sunscreen products before heading out into the sun for long periods of time--especially if it's hot outside!
Travel can be stressful, but it doesn't have to be! With these tips, you'll be able to take care of your hair while traveling.
