Jetting off somewhere warm and tropical for Spring Break? Lucky you! If you’ve got a vacation coming up to a sunny place where a pool or beach are nearby, keep in mind that your hair and skin might need a little extra TLC. Salt water, chlorine and sun can wreak havoc on your hair and skin, so take our advice and pack these Spring Break essentials in your travel bag ASAP.
For the flight
Shampure Dry Shampoo is non-aerosol, which means you can pack it in your carry-on bag! If you’re traveling a long distance or taking a redeye, you may want to freshen up a bit when you land; reach for the calming aroma and instant freshness of our Dry Shampoo! We also recommend tossing a travel-size Hand Relief in your bag to keep your hands feeling soft and moisturized in the dry cabin air.
For the beach
You know that SPF is important for everyday wear, but it’s really important when you’re laying in the sun. We love that Daily Light Guard Broad Spectrum Defense Fluid SPF 30 is small and sleek, so it doesn’t take up a ton of space in your beach bag, and it glides onto your face and doesn’t feel chalky. (We don’t make a body sunscreen, however, so pick some up before your trip!)
We never hit the beach or the pool without Sun Care Protective Hair Veil, a lightweight water-resistant UV defense mist that forms an “invisible screen” on your hair to help protect it from the drying effects of the sun. Your hair will look beautiful and shiny and stay protected as you enjoy the weather. We also recommend wearing a hat to help protect your hair and scalp.
If you’re heading to the tropics, stock up on Smooth Infusion styling products to keep humidity at bay. Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother controls frizz and defends against humidity for up to 12 hours, so don’t leave home without it! If air-drying on vacation is your goal, Nourishing Styling Crème will help seal in moisture and control frizz for an all-day smooth style.
For the hotel shower
After a long day in the sun, rinse off any salt or chlorine from your hair and body with Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser. It removes everything from chlorine to salt to product buildup thanks to corn-derived chelators, and the best part? It’s a two-in-one product, so you don’t have to pack shampoo and body wash!
Once your hair feels cleansed, grab the Sun Care After-Sun Masque. It’s an intensive cream masque that helps moisturize your sun-exposed hair and bring it back to life, and it’s the final step in our three-part “defense and recovery” system.
For easy, post-beach styling, try Be Curly Curl Enhancer if you’ve got curls or waves or Texture Tonic for instant, touchable texture. Many of our shampoos, conditioners and styling products come in travel size, so you can make your temporary vacation residence feel just like your permanent one without sacrificing precious suitcase space!
Those days in the sun will lift spirits and refresh you and you won’t have to worry about your hair! We have a feeling the compliments will roll in nonstop when you return from your trip.
