Whatever vacation hairstyles you're planning to wear this summer, you'll need the right products in your suitcase to make them happen. Find out what you need to pack with the checklist below!
To protect your hair before swimming in a pool or the ocean, you'll need a deep conditioner. Applying it to wet hair before taking a dip nourishes your strands and adds a protective layer to stop them absorbing salt and chlorine. It's also a good idea to have some leave-in conditioner with you to keep your ends hydrated between washes.
2. Wave enhancing products
Naturally air drying your hair, sea salt and a generally lo-fi approach to styling mean that you'll probably end up with loose, beachy waves while on vacation. To enhance all that gorgeous, effortless movement, make sure you have a styling spray like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray on hand. Apply it to dry or damp hair, braid it, then leave your locks to air dry. If you're pressed for time, blow-dry your hair in twisted sections instead.
Make sure you also take some dry shampoo with you to refresh your waves at the end of the day.
3. Smoothing products
If you're headed somewhere humid, make sure you have a calming serum in your bag to tame any surprise frizz attacks. You should also take a finishing spray like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray with you to seal your locks against any moisture in the air, thus preventing frizz and flyaways from the moment you're done styling.
Bobby pins, headbands, scrunchies and headscarves are all really useful to have on vacation. Updos are basically non-negotiable, and having plenty of accessories on hand will give you lots of different styling options.
