A few years ago, I wrote a blog post about traveling with transitioning hair. I decided to do an update on this post but discuss natural hair. I can't be the only person that instantly thinks about their hair when a trip comes up. Here are some of the tips that I follow when traveling with my natural hair.
1. If possible, avoid doing your hair at all
If my trip is less than a week I usually style my hair before I go. If the trip is on Friday, I'm over there doing my hair on Thursday. The idea is to be fresh and maintenance free for the entire trip. When I do this, I only need to bring whatever is necessary to maintain my style.
2. Invest in multipurpose products
If you must do your hair on your trip, find products that can be used in more than one way. That way you don't have to bring your entire arsenal with you. Though Tresemme Naturals is being discontinued, it is the perfect example of a product that can be use in a lot of different ways--cowash, deep conditioner, detangler, leave-in.
3. Develop a micro version of your regimen for traveling
When I am not doing my full regimen I add conditioner, detangle, rinse, apply leave-in, and style. It's quick, easy, doesn't use a lot of products, and is convenient even in a hotel.
4. Find some dollar store/drug store favorites
If you are flying for your trip, it may be best just to purchase some products when you get there. I am very familiar with the dollar store products that can do just about what my regular products do. A beautiful example is a gel from the same people behind wetline xtreme that can be found at dollar tree. Y'all! This gel is 16oz and costs $1!
