Besides body and face, our hair needs sun protection and care too. While packing for vacations, don’t forget all the mists, lotions, creams, shampoos and masques that will minimize sun damage and secure that your hair remains in great condition. With the right products your hair will also be benefited by sun exposure. Choose among a variety of textures and compositions; creamy, oily, liquid, or foamy, as well as packaging that best suits your needs. I’m very much in favor of sprays and dispensers but also love those huge vases of thick after-sun masques that cure my hair. Keep in mind that you need both sunscreens and after-sun products, to protect and later repair your hair. I usually recommend professional hair care products because they have powerful ingredients and give instant improvement as well as long-term benefit. If your luggage is small and your are not able to carry more than one product for your hair, then go for a very nutritive hair masque you can apply in between your dives to the ocean, as well as at the end of the day. It will save you from the pains of ultra-dry, broken and frizzing hair during vacations. I have some very amazing products to suggest you, so please give it a scroll down!
