Beat Those Holiday Hair Risks!
by SHOPIFY API / MAY 29, 2014
When it comes to holiday-ready hair, you’re probably all set. But the problem isn’t the condition of your hair before you go away, it’s how you care for it during and after your holiday that really makes the difference.Treating your extensions with the love and care they deserve under such intense conditions will pay dividends in the long run. Here is some advice to beat the holiday hair blues.
Don’t Rely on Foreign Stock
Being prepared for the inevitable conditions is the key to maintaining healthy looking hair extensions when you’re away, and the last thing you want to do is head on down to the hotel shop to find that they don’t stock anything remotely helpful for your locks. Make sure you pack what you need in your suitcase to avoid any nasty surprises.
Under the heat of the sun and the generally drier conditions, you need to make sure your extensions receive the right amount of moisture. Leave-in conditioner will be a lifesaver when you’re away, so make sure you have plenty with you.
Mind the Water
We know that being beach or pool-ready is an important part of looking great on your hols, but should it really come at the cost of your extensions? Salt water and chlorine can both be extremely damaging to your hair, so try not to swim with them in if you can avoid it. If you can’t bear the thought of being seen without your sidekick locks, then make sure you rinse them thoroughly with a clarifying shampoo as soon as you’re out of the water.
The sad fact about holiday is that you might well be better off covering it up in the sun and letting it loose in the evening. Floppy sun hats, head scarves and parasols are all trendy, sensible ways to keep your hair safe from the sun, and you don’t have to go a week without your beloved long locks.
