Last week I eagerly made my way back to the UK after what had seemed like forever. The journey took a ridiculous amount of time (start to finish around a crazy 17 hours) but I can’t complain as we saved a bucket load of money on the tickets, and being able to taste my beloved Nando’s again – you haven’t lived until you try this – made it all worth it.
Do Any Treatments Before You Go
If like me, your transitioning strands require frequent deep conditioning treatments to avoid matting at the demarcation line, why not do this beforehand if possible? This will help see that your hair is at its best before setting off and you can eliminate a product off the list.
There are a number of products my mum uses for my sister’s hair that I use too. Last time I ended up taking things back with me that were already hanging around the house, so now I check-in prior to travelling to see which products are already there.
Anticipate Your Next Product Splurge
Living in the Netherlands is so darn expensive compared to some of the ridiculously cheap prices in the UK. For this reason, if I have little to know conditioner etc. left, instead of replacing it before I travel, I save myself a few pennies and buy it when I’m there. Why pay 3 euros for my Herbal Essences when I can get it for £1?
Try To Stay On Board!
Transitioning hair benefits from minimal combing and hair touching, frequent moisturising, and dedication. Try to keep this on your mind while you are away, so that all that hard work isn’t jeopardised over a few days of neglect. No – you shouldn’t be a prisoner when caring for your hair, but try not to have too many days where you jump over board!
