Keep your hair braided or extended while on vacation

Hair braiding on vacation…

The snow finally melted, and summer vacation is here. Whether you are heading south to Florida, taking a boat trip to a Caribbean island or traveling abroad, fabulous hair is an essential accessory to match a bikini body. After months of work, to make your body perfect, why wear a baseball cap, scarf or worse to mess up your appearance? (awesome!)

The southern beaches will be very hot and humid this year. You can count on a temperature of 90°s with high humidity. This will be the killer of your easy hairstyle. The best way to solve this problem is to make the hair moist and wavy (sewn). The maintenance rate is surprisingly low. After cleaning and towel-drying your hair, you can roll it into waves. If you want to look chic on a dancing night, once your hair is dry, you can straighten it with a flat iron, or use an elastic curling iron to get the elastic spiral look. After all, you can spend the least time on your hair from the poolside to the nightclub, this is your vacation!

I know what you are thinking…after spending so much money on travel arrangements-who has the money to sew and knit? A: You can order the “Ultimate Hair Braiding Guide” from Amazon to get step-by-step instructions on how to properly install and maintain your own hair braiding. It can save lives. Last year, I used this procedure when traveling abroad, and this was the only person in my group who was as good on the flight to Europe as on the return flight. After the fourth day of our 10-day trip, everyone else wore baseball caps and scarves. Moreover, let’s face it, there is no way to make baseball caps look delicate.

Check out the following tips to help you maintain your vacation hairstyle:

1. Wet your hair before swimming. The best way to protect hair from discoloration and dry damage caused by salt water and chlorine is to soak the hair with water and add a layer of conditioner before entering the water. Hair can only absorb so much water, so it is best not to use chlorine or salt water.

2. Clean the hair immediately after dipping. After swimming, you cannot simply ring the excess water from your hair. Both salt and chlorine can strip the necessary lubricant from the hair. Be sure to wash my hair with conditioner shampoo, or sometimes I skip the shampoo and wash my hair together (clean with conditioner only) to prevent further drying of the hair. I love mixed chicken leave-in conditioner, and I am not a “mix chicken”, the hair on my head is indeed “mixed”.

3. Air dry instead of blow dry. Frequent blow-drying can be very harsh on the hair.

4. Sleeping in a silk/satin scarf. This prevents damage and makes styling easier the next morning.

Bon Voyage!
