Hair Care Packing Guide

A suitcase packed for a holiday

Summer is well and truly underway, and we’ve been experiencing some incredible weather here in the UK! With the sun shining bright in the sky, you might be thinking ahead to your summer holiday. Whether you’ve got a relaxing escape planned, a bustling festival, or a girly coastal trip, you hair care routine shouldn’t escape your mind when it comes to packing.

Before leaving, it is important that you leave a few weeks to have your hair done. Leaving it too late is a big no-no, especially if you’re anticipating cooling down in a chlorine pool! The sun can also have an impact on your hair, particularly if you’ve just had a colour done. So, make sure that you schedule an appointment at out hairdressers, Barnstaple beforehand. In addition, it is important when you’re packing that you might be out in the sun during its peak times. This can cause damage to the hair, so selecting some simple accessories and hats can be a great help here!
