My Travel Hair Routine

This is actually a post requested or may I say suggested by a dear friend of mine.

It originated from my latest work trip. She pointed out a few things that are quite obvious. We all travel and it is most likely for us to have less time or opportunities to take care of our hair when we travel.

I agree with her, because naturally, it happens to me. The question here is, when I am faced with such difficulties, how do I deal with them? So how do I practice my hair routine when I’ve got limited time and resources?

Traveling with homemade masks is not ideal for they need to be kept in a fridge. Imagine staying at a place where you do not have access to a fridge, unpleasant huh? And imagine packing a whole lot of ingredients, we all have weight limits.


My answer is quite simple. I take store bought masks with me. Not homemade, but the manufactured masks. This specific one is an example and one of my favorite masks. In case you are wondering why it is my favourite…

Shea Moisture 10 in 1 hair masque

Best part, closest thing you can have to a natural mask. No bad stuff on your hair.

What are the 10 benefits?

  1. Age-defy
  2. Colour protect
  3. Hydrate
  4. Nourish
  5. Soften
  6. Anti-stress
  7. Deep condition
  8. Revive body
  9. Strengthen
  10. Shine

I can easily use this mask twice in one week. You do not have to take with you three different masks for hydrating, nourishing and strenghthening, it does all three and more.  The best part is, it does exactly as mentioned on the packeging. My hair feels great just after 5 minutes. Most masks that mention “12 in 1/ 10 in 1” have many functions and they are great, especially when you do not have a lot of time. Normally the package mentions allowing the mask to act for 3 to 5 minutes, washing and finally styling.

Like I said before, this isn’t the only mask with such functions, but it is one of the best I have ever tried.

What is your traveling hair routine?
