Can you guys believe the holiday season is already here? I honestly can’t. This year has passed way too fast.
But the reality is that we are approaching the end of the year and our schedules are filled with family get-together, office parties and holiday trips. I wanted to share a few of my tips for keeping my hair color on point – at home and on the road using with my favorite Clairol products. I love each for their own individual reasons, but I’ve truly grown to love their Nice ‘N Easy Permanent hair color, the 2018 Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award winner. It was no surprise to me when they won the award because of how easy and convenient (not to mention affordable) Clairol makes at-home hair coloring, and my hair feels silky and smooth every time.
Before I go on a trip, I usually try to color my hair at home with Clairol Nice ‘N Easy. Especially when my hair is looking dull and I need a full coloring to blend my color and highlights while covering grays. Again, I love that this product has conditioners built into every step, leaving my hair feelings healthy and shiny and not mention it’s so easy to use and smells lovely.
Usually, I am good at sticking to my routine and coloring my hair before my travels, but sometimes life happens and I don’t have the time to color my hair before I travel. In that case, I’ll take some Clairol products on-the road with me. Depending on my hair needs, these are the Clairol products I’ll typically pack with me:
- Clairol Permanent Root Touch-Up, is my go-to for a quick touch-up if I have my roots showing, whether from my natural color or I see some grays popping through. Only takes ten minutes and is perfect for a quick fix that will last three weeks!
- Clairol Root Touch-Up Powder, for a last-minute touch up of any pesky gray hair I may have missed (which happens often).
Also did you ladies know, you can use Clairol Root Touch-Up Powder on your eyebrows to give them more shape and definition? Yes, this product is literally a two-for-one. That means less things to pack on my trips, that’s a win-win on my book. I like to pack an extra Clairol Root Touch-Up Powder in my bag too for every day, because it has a mirror that I can use to apply my lipstick and check on my hair on last time, or tame my brows should I need a quick fix.
Some other essentials I always take with me when I’m traveling, whether it’s by car, train or plane, include:
- Water bottle
- Face Serum
- Silk eye mask
- Silk scarf for my hair
I tie the silk scarf around my hair before I go to sleep to avoid waking up with frizzy hair. When I wake up in the morning, my hair is silky and smooth which helps my blow-out last longer and I use less hot tools. The crème conditioner that comes in the Nice ‘n Easy kit gives my hair a soft, shiny texture, and using a silk scarf helps to maintain that.
But let me tell you a little secret, I do it EVERY night, whether I’m at home or traveling. You should give it a try and let me know how you like it!
Depending on my how long I’m traveling for, I may check my bag or do carry-on only. Believe it or not I prefer carry-on – less wait when you arrive to your destination.
I can’t believe I’m saying this already, but I hope you have an amazing holiday and New Year, full of happiness and surrounded by the ones you love.
Hope you enjoyed learning more about my favorite Clairol products and safe travels this holiday season!
With Lots of Love,
