Holiday Hair Care Essentials

Are you getting ready to head off on holiday? It’s that time of the year when ALL of your daily thoughts are clouded with holiday dreams and it can be quite difficult to concentrate! To save you some hassle when prepping and packing, we thought we’d give you a little guide to hair care essentials so that you can tick one more holiday worry off your list and focus on having fun!

Always wear protection

Those who are sensible ensure to slather up with sun cream before spending a day lounging in the beaming sunshine. However, very few people think that their hair needs the same level of protection! The UV light, chlorinated water and other elements that your hair can be exposed to can leave your hair feeling brittle and dry. Therefore, we recommended opting for products from the Kerastase Soleil range to ensure that you’re fully protected! From nourishing daily shampoo to leave in beautifying cream and intensive hair masks, their range offers all you’ll need to keep your locks in top condition, whilst offering UV protection too!

Au Natural or Faux Natural?

Some consider their holidays a perfect time to give their hair a break from heat tools that can often be used on a daily basis at home, instead opting to embrace the au natural vibe. There are so many heatless hairstyles that are perfect for the holidays, especially if you’re a fan of the more tousled looks! Others prefer to bring along a heat tool or two to tame their manes and create beachy waves! Whichever option you decide on, be sure to pick the perfect products that will give your look the perfect finesse.

Picking the Perfect Products

You don’t want to head on holiday hauling a whole bathroom load of product, but be sure to pick out a few essentials. A lot of this may be down to personal preference and your own hair type, be it salt sprays, dry shampoo or high-gloss serums, but make sure you take tried and tested products to make your life easier!

Don’t Forget to Accessorise

Accessories can be a lifesaver when it comes to your hair on holiday, start off by packing the basics of hair bands, bobby pins and obviously a hairbrush. Then, you may also want to consider things such as a floral headband, a headscarf or even some sparkly glitter! These can turn a bad hair day into the best hair day in no time at all, saving a whole lot of time and hassle that could be spent enjoying the sunshine!

Treat Yo’self

If you’re getting ready to head away for your dream vacation, you’ll want to be looking and feeling your best. For this, we suggest scheduling a serious pamper session in the week before you leave. Ensure your hair is freshly cut and coloured ready to capture those picture perfect moments for your Insta feed, enjoy a relaxing face mask and a deep body moisturising session and you’ll be feeling like a goddess!
