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 can’t take full size products on board our flight. Travel miniatures are the answer, but it’s important to consider the quality 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.

If you will mostly wear your hair up or in waves or curls while on holiday, the Grandioso Shampoo and Grandioso Conditioner will be your saviour. Creating healthy hair with extra volume and body, the Grandioso range 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 range is the perfect option to create controlled volume for flattering updos and natural curls and waves.

If you want to wear your hair sleek and straight while on holiday, the key is to use a product that will control frizz and add shine without weighing the hair down. The Intenso Mask is perfect for thirsty holiday hair and will leave you with healthy looking hair that’s glossy and manageable.

Finally, for general day-to-day care, the Vivace Dry Shampoo is a must. Formulated using over 90% naturally derived bio-certified ingredients, it will help you stay on top of your style without the need to wash your hair everyday, leaving you with more time to enjoy yourself.

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.
