When you travel, your hair is exposed to a variety of negative factors, including chemicals, pollution, humidity, mist, temperature changes, low oxygen levels, and bright sunshine. Then, it requires much more attention. Your hair will become damaged if you don't take adequate care of it, leading to split ends and hair loss.
Here are a few tips you may use to take care of your hair while traveling.
1. Regular oiling of your hair
Regular hair oiling can be beneficial for your hair. You can use a variety of oils, including olive oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, and other oils containing vitamin E. Your hair will become soft, lustrous, and smooth as a result. Additionally, it gives the hair the nutrition and nourishment it needs. These oils can be safely transported in your essentials pouch in little plastic bottles. Additionally, you can travel with jojoba oil sachets fortified with vitamin E. Before going to bed, give your hair a gentle oil massage. Remember to bring a head covering with you.
2. Wash and properly dry your hair
After oiling your hair, you must wash it with a gentle shampoo and then condition it. If you go outside with oil in your hair, additional dust and pollution will be attracted. Make sure to dry your hair off after a thorough wash, then comb it well.
3. Keep your hair neatly pulled up
Your hair will eventually become a major mess after a train or automobile ride. Make sure to secure your hair in a large, fashionable bun, preferably a top knot to keep it in place. Your fashion quotient will rise if you wear a top knot.
5. Keep a dry shampoo bottle ready
When you check-in, every hotel gives you a hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner, hair lotion, and other everyday hair care necessities. But it's always a good idea to keep a tiny bottle or sachet of shampoo on hand. Keep a bottle of dry shampoo on hand as well in case of emergency.
6. Extra caution when visiting beaches
Take particular care of your hair whenever you visit a beach and intend to participate in water sports. Extreme hair damage is caused by the chlorine and salt in ocean water, the sand, the heat, and the moisture in the air. Before you decide to go into the water, be sure to apply enough oil to your hair. This will lessen the damaging effects of salt and chlorine on your hair. After leaving the beach, make sure to completely wash your hair.
