Easy Hair Care for the Gal on the Go

When you travel, especially to places with a tropical climate, you often put your long hair in a ponytail or a bun to keep them off your face as you hike through the mountains or frolic on the beach. Constantly tying up your hair may lead to breakage. Protect your hair from too much breakage by applying these hair care tips while you are on the go.


Tie Hair When It Is Dry

Your hair is at its weakest when it is wet. Tying it back during this time makes it more prone to breakage. Wait until hair dries before pulling it back to a ponytail or tying it up in a bun.

Tie Hair Loosely

Try not to tie hair too tightly and use snag-free hair ties or hair elastics so that they don’t snag or break hair as you tie it. When you are ready to let your hair down and when removing hair ties, do it gently. Don’t just drag all of your hair ties down all at once. Take time to undo the elastic loops to lessen the chance of hair breakage.


Condition Your Hair with Natural Hair Care Products

Bring along a bottle of your favorite all natural essential oil to keep your hair moisturized. Hotel shampoos and conditioners are handy especially if you forgot to bring your own. But sometimes they don’t provide enough hydration that your hair needs. A small bottle of essential oils such as Pomegranate Seed Oil or Castor Oil may help make your hair look great as you travel.

Pamper Your Hair

Add a luxurious essential oil to your regular shampoo or conditioner for added moisture. Some essential oils such as rose oil may help make hair smell like thousands of rose when used together with your favorite shampoo. Add a few drops to your shampoo and smell like roses all day while you walk along the streets of the places you visit.

These are just some of the tips you can do. More hair care tips are available here.
