How to Take Care of Natural Hair When Traveling

After a harsh Winter that didn’t want to leave, it is finally beginning to feel like Spring. Summer travel season right around the corner and whether it is long or short-term, you need to keep your hair intact. If you’re a natural going on vacation soon, below are some tips for taking care of your natural hair on vacation.

Protective Style

Wearing a protective style is the method I use the most for styling my natural hair on vacation. I usually ask my sister to braid it in an updo or a style like I’ve worn in Trinidad, and even as a bridesmaid or wedding guest. If I have “free hair” and don’t want to style my hair every morning, I just put it in a halo braid or two cornrows and keep it moving as I did in Puerto Plata.

Use TSA-Approved Containers

If you travel frequently, purchasing travel-sized containers is a great investment. Using TSA-sized containers really come in handy if there are specific products used based on preference or medical reasons. It also is more cost effective than purchasing travel-sized products in stores. You can purchase these containers at Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, your local beauty supply store, or Amazon. 

Pack Hair Essentials

If you’re spending 3-5 or more days on vacation, bring a conditioner to cowash and a styling product. You can also bring a spray bottle to mix the conditioner and water to make a leave-in. As far as hair tools go, bring some ouchless ponytail holders or hairpins to keep your hair up and a satin scarf or bonnet to sleep in.
