Curly Hair Travel Essentials: 5 Things You Just Can't Live Without

Curly Hair Travel Essentials: 5 Things You Just Can't Live Without

It's holiday season, and with Spring here and Summer just around the corner, there are 5 important things for you to keep in mind while traveling. These 5 tips will definitely make your travel experience a little easier.
TIP 1: Travel Product/Travel Storage
One of the most important things for a curly girl to remember is to check the sizing of your products. Products that you are taking in your hand luggage on a plane must be under 100ml. There's nothing worse than going through security, seeing your bag being pulled to the side and watching them throw away your brand new hair mist or leave-in conditioner to refresh your curls after a long flight. The best thing to do is either invest in travel size products, or buy travel size storage containers to fill with your favourite go to products.
TIP 2: Travel Light
Depending on how long you travel for, is there really any need for you to bring your whole wash day routine on holiday with you? If traveling for a short period of time, you maybe able to get away with doing your whole wash day routine a day or so before you travel.
TIP 3: Satin Pillow Case/Silk or Satin Scarf
Have you ever walked into a hotel room and seen a satin pillow case? I didn't think so. You wouldn't dry you hair with a regular towel, so why punish your curls and rub them on a cotton pillow case. Satin/silk scarfs and satin pillow cases take up hardly any room at all so there's no excuse not to pack your essential sleep wear.
TIP 4: Diffuse Much?
Other than air drying, most of you like to diffuse your curly tresses. Most hotels have their own hair dryer, so why not take a portable diffuser head. Just check with the hotel a head of time whether a hair dryer is available, a voila! Now you have extra room in your suitcase to do more shopping.
TIP 5: Protective Styling
Having you hair up in a pineapple, bun or braids etc, will give your hair a break and protect it from breaking, giving better protection for your natural curls. Why not rock a head wrap. Just remember keeping your hair moisturised while protective styling is super important.

Love it on my Relaxed Hair

I use this on my relaxed hair - it absorbs well and I have to say, my hair is feeling fuller and has far less breakage. I know Flora and Curl products are marketed for use on natural hair but I though I'd give it a try as I liked the sound of the ingredients and I am so glad I did. Even my hairdresser has noticed the positive difference in my hair. Just wish there was deep conditioner to add to the range. I am about to buy my second pot.

Miracle product!!

My son has very tight and unruly curls, and I have really really battles to keep them neat (ish) and tangle free. This is the only product that has really worked! It helps loosen the tangles and has halved our brushing time. I use in the bath on wet hair, and when it dries his curls are frizz free and beautifully bouncy. Just amazing! Flora and Curl products are the only ones I'll use on my son's hair. All natural too which is another reason!
