Vacation Hair & Humidity Tips

It’s beyond frustrating to see the hairstyle that looked smooth and sleek at home puff up into an unrecognizable mess of frizz when you arrive at your vacation destination. Many of the world’s best travel spots are prone to high humidity, so if you’re heading to a place known for swampy air, pack appropriate hair-care products. Extra effort spent taming your hair will pay off when you look back at your vacation photos and admire your cool style.

STEP 1

Apply a deep conditioner to your hair the day before your trip. Take another small bottle of deep conditioner so you can treat your hair every three or four days during the trip; moisturizing your hair will not only help it look healthy, but weigh it down a bit so it won’t puff up. Pack moisturizing shampoo and daily conditioner to use each day in the shower.

STEP 2

Embrace the natural texture of your hair. Leave heat-styling products at home and let your hair go wavy or curly, if that’s its inclination. If you can’t stand leaving home without these items, use heating products like straightening irons and blow dryers only to style your bangs or touch up the top layer of your hair. Humidity will bring out any curl in your hair, so there’s no use fighting it.

STEP 3

Rub humidity- or frizz-fighting mousse or gel between your hands and work it through all your hair from the roots to the ends. If your hair is straight and fine, skip the mousse and apply a smoothing serum over your hair.

STEP 4

Finger-comb your hair to eliminate tangles. Let your hair air-dry. To prevent frizz, keep your hands off it while it dries.

STEP 5

Style your hair. Letting it stay down leaves you open to frizz and poofiness. Pull it up in a ponytail or bun. If you have bangs, keep them under control by wrapping a scarf around the crown of your head, propping your sunglasses on top of your head or sweeping them to the side and securing them with bobby pins. Part your hair down the center and make two French braids, one on either side of the part, or sweep your hair back into a low bun at the nape of your neck for a low-key look that works for both day and night.

If all else fails, pull on a baseball cap or floppy sun hat!
