Are you a new natural and suddenly packing for your summer getaway just got complicated?
FIND OUT WHY THESE FIVE ITEMS ARE A MUST HAVE!
You might think this item is unnecessary to bring, especially if wash day was the day before you are due to depart to your tropical island. However, you never know what unplanned activities your travels will bring you and as a result a sulfate & paraben free shampoo may be needed to wash your natural hair. If you don't want to be stuck having to wash sand out of your hair with a shampoo that has harmful detergents in it, then it's best to have this handy item on stand by.
If I bring shampoo does that mean I also need conditioner?
Yes! Anytime you wash your natural hair, be sure to condition your hair afterwards. If you have gotten sand and any unwanted dirt in your hair on your trip, you are going to give it a good washing. To ensure you put moisture into your hair and hydrate your curls with natural oils and butters, bring you a deep conditioner that is moisturizing. You may also find yourself needing to do a co-wash in the middle of your trip if the atmosphere is drying to your hair.
If I wash and condition I'm going to need a styler, right?
Correct. Whatever you use to style your hair, bring a travel size bottle of it.This will ensure you have what you need to restyle your hair. When you travel, it is not guaranteed that you will have access to the same products. So, it's best to have yours with you.
Now that you know it's best to have your wash day materials with you, these last two items are the ones we tend to forget but are critical...
At night, you will want to protect your natural hair from being pulled out by those comfy hotel pillows we all love. Best practice, buy yourself an extra one and keep it packed in your bag so you never forget it at home.
The best way to keep your hair moisturized in between wash days is to give your hair what it loves the most, water. Watering your hair has the same effect as watering grass, GROWTH. When traveling to different parts of the world, your hair may be drier than usual. Pack you a travel hair spray bottle that you can fill up with water. Spray your hair in the morning and before you go to bed, daily moisture for optimal hair health.
