Vacation Hair

I never wash my hair on vacation. I hate packing all my hair products and don't take my chances with hotel shampoos. Instead, I wash it the day before my trip and as soon as I get back home.

I have a client who saw me for a braid the day before she went on a beach vacation. The next time I saw her she said she'd worn the braid the entire two weeks she was on vacation! Do you wash your hair on vacation? Do you use hotel shampoos or do you pack your whole beauty kit?

Ironically enough, I hate packing my own hair products but always look for some while traveling. I'm on vacation in Turkey right now and just bought a bottle of all-natural rose shampoo that I can't wait to try. Do you like to buy beauty products abroad?

I never trust hotel products, wet hair dries with sun, that's all. This year I'll try your tutorials instead of 5 second buns.

I'm so glad you are not in Istanbul but somewhere else, things are so chaotic in here right now. Be well, love u!

I simply couldn't imagine going without shampoo. My hair gets really greasy even after a day. Maybe I could go without shampoo and bring just dry shampoo. If you've got any solutions, I'm all ears!

I always pack my moisturizing shampoo and conditioner! :) And if I'm travelling with my sisters or girl friends who use the same shampoo, I just share with them so we all don't have to pack our hair products.

I definitely don't wash my hair on vacation. Nor I use makeup. It;s such a nice break.

In "real life" I wash my hair every 2-3 days, so it doesn't get oily quickly, but what bothers me is the smell of my dirty hair (and thinking that my husband is smelling that even more so than I am). Dry shampoo (I love Oribe) can extend me washing by a day, but I can't imagine a week! When you say you don't wash your hair, are you rinsing it out just without shampoo?

Lynn,

When I don't wash my hair I sometimes literally don't wet it the whole time or sometimes I just rinse it out without using shampoo. A hair perfume would be great no?

Ah! I would love to have thicker and/or longer hair and not have to wash it but if I do not wash my hair every other day it looks absolutely horrible. If I had longer hair I would braid it and just go on my way. I've been told I have thick but fine individual hair strands, and on top of it my hair gets very oily very quickly! :(

How often do you wash your hair normally? I did not know it was possible for a braid to last 2 weeks!! How is that?
I wash* my hair every 3-4 days no matter where I am.


*I do not use shampoo or conditioner. Just rinse with baking soda and "condition" with apple cider vinegar.
