Q: Any tips for hair maintenance while traveling?
A: When I travel, I try to take as few products as possible, and sometimes, I’ll even take something where I’ll use up the rest of the product while on vacation and buy something on the ground (like KMF Upper Management Gel from Whole Foods or Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel). What I usually do is put my hair in a set of twists (I hate wet hair on the plane), then leave those in for a few days, then switch to a twist out for another few days. If I’m still away, it’s usually the weekend by the time I’m done with my twist out, so I’ll wash or condition my hair (I pick up drugstore staples like Tresemme or a natural shampoo), and just do a wash n go and let my hair air dry. Just make sure you take versatile products that you have used several times. Vacation is not the time to experiment with a new gel! Also, I take products that I have in smaller sizes, like 4oz products as opposed to my 16oz, so they take up less room in my bag. Mmmm…I think that’s it. Happy and safe travels!
