7 Suitcase Essentials for Holiday Hair

Easy holiday hair styling in the Sun

I believe that hair styling should be light touch. My mantra when it comes to hair is less is more and this is especially important in a hot, sunny climate.

The sun is damaging for hair so I recommend focusing your holiday hair care routine around 3 simple rules.

  1. Limit your hair’s exposure to the sun.
  2. Choose simple heat-free styling techniques.
  3. Nourish your hair with moisture-boosting products.

7 Suitcase Essentials

To style and care for your hair this summer

Protect Hair from Split Ends with a sun hat in the midday sun

1. Pins Clips and Hair Bands

Pins, clips and bands are handy for plaiting, ponies, up-dos and topknots to add fun to your look. From poolside glamour to sunset chic these easy-to-pack accessories will save you from the drying effects of the daily blow-dry. 

2. Velcro Rollers

Velcro rollers – pack 3 or 4 of them and for quick and easy styling.

3. Pack the Right Brush

Pack a Mason Pearson brush for back-brushing hair, especially when wearing it up. Use a vent brush for shorter styles to create body and volume by pushing the roots up with the vent brush.

4. A Hat

A hat is not only a style essential for long summer days, but it will also protect your hair from sun damage. Wear your hat to avoid the sun’s rays, particularly between midday and 3 pm.

5. Moisture-Boosting Styling Products

Styling Mist for Natural Hold and a Glossy Finish – This little beauty is more than just a styling product. It also works as a leave-conditioner. It contains Sugar Beet, an ingredient that helps the hair to retain moisture, working alongside keratin and argan oil to nourish and repair dry hair, leaving your it smooth and shiny.

6. Headscarf

Use a headscarf to dress long or short hair. This stylish option will protect your hair all day and even gives you an option for a cool look in the evening .

7. Deep Conditioner

Always take a deep conditioner with you. If you have dry hair, this  is your go-to product for smooth, shiny, frizz-free hair.
