Hair Salon Reveals 5 Hair Care Tips for Your Vacation, Manhattan, New York

Vacations give you a chance to sit back, unwind, and take a well-earned break. Of course, your hair care routine doesn’t stop just because you’re away from home. Whether you’re taking a dip in the ocean or a pool, all of that sun and water can damage your locks. Bloom Beauty Lounge, New York City’s premier hair salon, shares their top protection tips while you’re on vacation.

How to Care for Your Hair on Vacation

1. Wear Your Hair Easy

You’re on vacation to relax, so let your hair do the same. Chlorine and salt water can ruin complicated hairstyles, leaving them in a messy mass you’ll need to untangle. Keep it simple and wear your hair in easy styles that won’t be bothered by the water. Hair salons recommend you leave it down, in a loose bun, or in simple braids.

2. Condition Before Swimming

Hair can only absorb so much moisture, so it’s best to saturate it with shower water and conditioner before exposing it to chlorine or salt. Pool and ocean water will dry out your locks when allowed to soak your hair alone. Conditioner, on the other hand, will keep your tresses soft, silky, and moisturized throughout your swim.

3. Take a Hat or Headscarfhair salon

Not only do hats and scarves add an extra layer of style to your look, but they also protect your hair from the harmful rays of the sun. UV rays can damage your skin and your hair, so take a wide-brimmed hat or headscarf along with your sunscreen. This step is especially important for those with hair color treatments, which can fade in intense heat and sunlight.

4. Ditch the Hair Dryer

You might be tempted to blow dry your drenched hair after taking a dip, but leave the hair dryer at home. Since salt water and chlorine leech moisture from your hair, heat tools can be extra harsh on your locks and dry them out further. Instead, allow your hair to air dry.

5. Bring Travel-Size Products

Since your hair needs special care during beach and pool trips, bring high quality, organic travel-size products along. Bloom Beauty Lounge offers a nourishing line of hair care products, Lavender & Oak, online and at their hair salon. Use their sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner—perfect for all hair types—to cleanse and moisturize after your swim.

When it comes to natural hair care, you can trust your locks to Bloom Beauty Lounge. Whether you’re looking for a dramatic haircut or a nourishing treatment for curly hair, this hair salon has everything you need to look and feel confident. Shop their organic hair products for healthy, frizz-free hair. Call (212) 255-9355 to speak with a specialist or learn about their services online.
