Had a lovely little break in Barcelona last week 🥰🌤 We had a fab time, ate loads of tapas and then ate even more tapas.
Here’s a bit about my hair and my thoughts on what caused each of the issues:
Pics 1,2,3,4 are the same day and the worst my hair felt in the time I was there. It felt incredibly dry, the face framing curls were all clumped together and my hair was very knotty. In hindsight I think this was due to product buildup, the wind/rain on the previous day, perhaps a little dried out from the plane air or new climate. But I think it was mostly from having added a load of products (maybe cause they contained protein) to refresh over the past 3 days.
Pic 5, I had done a full wet refresh in the shower, fully detangled with the Boucleme conditioner and squished to condish to make sure my hair was fully hydrated. I then styled with Cantu Curl Activator and Bounce Curl Light Creme Gel. This refresh really hydrated my hair, it felt soft for the next couple of days. However my curls didn’t have as much structure to them as normal, there were a lot of stretched out pieces. I think this may have been due to the water in the hotel. I am used to hard water, but I’ve heard most hotels have soft water. Regardless of this, once my hair had settled, I quite liked this hair day.
Next time I go away I’m deffo going to make sure to take glycerin free stylers to see if that makes a difference in a new climate.
Do you struggle with your hair when you’re away too?
