Flexible Hair Travel Tips

Spring is the time of year to set all those dream vacation plans in motion. All we want to think about is having fun, letting loose and relaxing a bit. While you're jet-setting around the world, you don't want to have to stress about your hair. The good news is that having a glamorous and vacation inspired hairstyle is 100% attainable with the help of Silk Indian Hair extensions. Here are our best tips for traveling while flawlessly rockin' the best vacation look.

Style Selection

Pick a style that will require the least amount of maintenance and can handle heavy activity, the movement and moisture that comes along with it. Because of this, we recommend curly or wavy hair extensions for vacation. Your curls will hold while wet and define themselves again just in time for dinner or a night out. Do you have relaxed hair? Wavy extensions may be a more fitting choice as they will better blend. The main point here is that you don’t want your planned excursions to ruin your style or confine you to your hotel room for hours making you work on damage control.

Prep & Installing

Be sure to get your weave installed within one week before your vacation begins. That allows time for your hair to loosen and fall so it's not too tight or painful to style. Ask your stylist to cover as much of your natural hair as possible to decrease the amount of blending for your style, and also to protect your natural hair against the harsh elements of the season. Lastly, make sure your installation allows you to create a few different styles for all the activities on your itinerary.

Ready, Set, Go!

Now that you're all done... let's keep it up! Stay Cool: Use a spray bottle of water when the heat gets extreme. Not only will it keep you cool but the light mist will keep your curls or waves fresh throughout the day. Pick your Product: Use hair care products that are light and don't create or leave residue. You want to make sure your products aren't leaving a footprint of their own around the resort. Also make sure your products aren't compromising the texture or damaging the integrity of the hair. Make sure you have travel sized products or check them in your luggage before heading through security. You definitely don't want these essentials left behind! Comb it Out: Bring your trusty brush or comb and stash it in your bag for safe keeping. If you plan on getting in the pool we recommend brushing out your hair before and after to stay far away from tangles and a head full of deadlocks. Accessorize: Snag-free elastics are always the way to go. Create some flair using bobby pins or swing your hair up for a sultry effect with a large hair clip. Now that you have all the tools you need it's time to book your flight, hotel and your transformation! What are your vacations plans this year?
