How to Take Care of Your Hair When You're on Vacation How to Take Care of Your Hair When You're on Vacation How to Take Care of Your Hair When You're on Vacation

Going on vacation is obviously exciting. But with a trip comes the need to take stock of your hair care routine. After all, you want your hair to look its best in all those vacation selfies you'll be taking, right? If you're planning a beach getaway in particular, there are a few steps you can take to help keep your mane in tip-top shape while you travel. So, follow along with our vacation hair care tips below!

Vacation Hair Care Tip #1: Make a Chop Before You Travel

Book a visit to the salon to get rid of any dead ends that could be weighing your hair down. Whether you simply get an inch or two cut off or you’d like to make a more drastic change, you’ve got plenty of options. One low maintenance haircut we’re loving these days? That would be the lob. (Here are three styling options for lob haircuts.)

Vacation Hair Care Tip #2: Switch to a System of Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner

Make sure to pick of a moisturizing system of shampoo and conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourishing Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourishing Conditioner, to help nourish your strands.

Vacation Hair Care Tip #3: Opt for Air Drying

It could be a good idea to ditch your heat tools in favor of air drying your hair. Work with your hair’s texture when it’s hot outside instead of trying to fight against it. After towel-drying your hair, apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray, L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse, or L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Undone Style Cream, then let your hair do its thing. It’s that easy! (Try these adorable no-heat hairstyles.)

Vacation Hair Care Tip #4: Wear a Wide-Brimmed Hat

While it may feel great to spend all that extra time out in the sunshine when you're on vacation, this might not be so great if you color your hair. UV rays, water, and heat styling can all affect your color. If you have color-treated hair, one of the things you can do to help protect your hue is to wear a wide-brimmed hat, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Shopping trip, anyone?

Vacation Hair Care Tip #5: Condition Your Hair Before Taking a Dip

Ah, there’s just something so relaxing about lounging around the pool—but if you’re planning on taking a dip, it’s a good rule of thumb to take a few hair care measures first. That’s because, according to the AAD, chlorine can be drying to hair. The AAD suggests wetting and conditioning your hair before swimming in chlorine as well as wearing a swim cap and using a specially formulated swimmer’s shampoo and deep conditioner after you leave the pool.

Vacation Hair Care Tip #6: Rock a Braided Hairstyle

Cool things down while you run around by putting your hair up and getting it off your neck. One of our favorite vacation hairstyles is the braid—and there are so many different braiding techniques, you can try a different one every day of the week!
