It is possible to achieve beautiful and low maintenance hair while away, the trick is finding great products as well as understanding exactly what your hair needs. Read on to discover our guide to summer holiday hair care tips for beautiful hair everyday…
Summer Holiday Hair Woes
No matter what your hair type is, you’re likely to find your hair behaves a little differently during your holiday. A change in temperature, humidity, chlorine, salt water and even the sea air can all make hair unruly and difficult to manage. This can be frustrating, as many of us put a lot of time and effort into planning our summer holiday wardrobe and overall look.
The key to tackling unruly summer hair head on is investing in high quality products and a little forward planning. Consider how you might wear your hair for each occasion while on holiday. For city trips you might choose a chignon with a few loose locks at the front, to keep your hair off your face and neck. For beach escapes, loose waves might be better suited, whereas boat trips may call for a French plait, and dinner and drinks poker straight locks.
Once you have a better understanding of how you might style your hair on holiday, you can invest in key products to help you achieve each look and ensure your hair stays put all day long…
Luxury Travel Miniatures
Summer holiday haircare is made even trickier by the fact that we don’t always have room to take full size products, which can become even trickier if you’re planning on only taking hand luggage! For this, travel miniatures are the answer, but it’s important to consider the investing in the right products (regardless of whether they are full size or travel size) to ensure you get the results you are looking for.
For updos including chignons and French plaits, volume is key. When the hair is too sleek and slippery, it can be tricky to control it properly to fix into your desired style. In addition, a little volume on top is flattering for almost everyone when it comes to updos. The perfect solution is the Favoloso Movement Enhancer, a beautiful texturing spray that adds a light hold whilst amplifying volume to fill out those plaits or add fullness to a chignon.
If you have fine or flat hair that is difficult to volumise while on holiday under the summer sun, the Grandioso Shampoo and Grandioso Conditioner will be your saviours. Creating healthy hair with extra volume and body, the Grandioso collection is part of our luxury travel miniatures collection. Both the shampoo and conditioner contain over 92% naturally derived ingredients and are sulphate free. The Grandioso collection is the perfect option to add natural-looking volume to fine or flat hair.
If you want to wear your hair sleek and straight while on holiday, the key is to use products that will control frizz and add shine without weighing the hair down. A combination of the Velluto Straightening Serum applied to damp hair and the Brillante Protect & Shine Oil applied as the finishing touch to dry hair, is the perfect way to keep hair looking smooth, sleek, straight, frizz-free and shiny – all while being protected from the sun!
Finally, for general day-to-day care, the Vivace Dry Shampoo Crème is a must. Formulated using over 90% naturally derived bio-certified ingredients, it will help you stay on top of your style by giving it a cleansing refresh and root-lifting volume boost without the need to wash your hair everyday, leaving you with more time to enjoy your summer holiday.
Beautiful hair everyday on holiday is achievable. With a little forward planning and armed with luxury travel miniatures, you can feel confident in your look and take on that carefree spirit we all need to fully embrace our summer escape.
