The Scoop on Traveling With Curly Hair
Today we’re going to share some pro tips to make travelling as a curly girl a whole lot easier.
Check the weather.
Probably the most important thing that I see curly girls skip over, is taking a look at the 7-14 day forecast of the city they’re travelling to. Most curly girls have a routine set up where they live. They know what their holy grails are, their refreshing, cleansing and conditioning routine. They know all that well.
It’s important to take into account the city that they're travelling to, might have a totally different barometric pressure, temperature and humidity so their routine and holy grails may not work there. Then you'll have real problems, especially if you're there for more than a couple of days. So take a look at the weather and pack accordingly.
Have a travel kit.
If you're flying, put together a kit of travel sized hair products. Now, you're probably thinking, I’ve already packed full-size bottles in my luggage, why do I need to put together a travel kit?
You never know what delays you may have, either the way there or back, and having that travel kit is going to make a real difference.
Our starter kits are TSA friendly and has everything you need to style or refresh your curls along the way.
Stay away from heated styles.
This one may get a whole lot of pushback but it is a very good key. If you're still using heat tools, this would be a really good time to consider giving them up. A good reason why is that you have to pack them; a blow dryer, straightener, curling iron. Ditch your heat tools, leave them at home, and maybe by the time you get back, you might not even want them.
Use Saran wrap.
This tip may seem simplistic however a lot of people don't do it. If you're going to somebody's house or staying at a hotel, you can lay saran wrap across the counters in the bathroom. If you have any shedding while styling your hair, this makes the clean up super easy. Once you’re done, you can just ball it up and throw it away.
So there are some good travel tips that'll make traveling a whole lot easier with curly hair.
