Travel in Style

November 24, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Once you have your style mastered at home, you can wake up each morning and create your perfect style without even really thinking about it. But what will you do when it comes to traveling? Do you think you’ll be able to create your style when you’re on the road without a lot of effort? For many women, the answer is no. They need to be at home with of their hair iron and blow dryer and everything at their finger tips. But just because you are traveling doesn’t mean that you cannot have beautiful hair, you just need to prepare yourself.

If you’re traveling on airplanes you must remember the latest safety rules. So you will not be able to take any gels, hairsprays or other styling liquids on the plane with you. If that’s a problem for you while you’re traveling, or you will be on some very long flights where you want to look your best, consider putting your hair in a braid, a stylish pony tail, or some other very simple and manageable style that will not need a lot of readjustment or care.

Once you arrive at your destination, your hair may experience some changes. That is because everywhere you go, the conditions will be different. There will be different temperatures, and humidity conditions to consider. For example, if you live on the dry prairies, and you travel to a tropical location, your hair will experience a big shift in humidity which means that if you have curly hair, it will have much more volume, and it may be harder for you to style initially, until you get used to the changes. Be prepared for these changes and don’t panic, you will be able to figure out how to adjust your styling techniques to account for these differences. You may even discover a cool new style for your hair.

Don’t forget that in each country, there are different voltages, which means that your hair tools may not work in other countries unless you have an adapter to help you use your tools. Sometimes the cost of these adapters can be quite high, you may want to consider buying tools in the country you are visiting if you are going to be there for awhile, or you can always readjust your style for the length of your visit.

Traveling can be a lot of fun, and a big adventure. If you feel it’s important to you and your happiness to have the exact same style everyday that you are on your holiday, then you will want to pay special attention to how you can travel with your hair styling tools safely and effectively. But another alternative would be to enjoy your holiday with a completely different style. Perhaps this means trying your hair curly while you are on holiday in a humid environment? Or maybe that means wearing your hair in braids or up styles every day?

Whatever way you decide to holiday, remember that great hair styles can happen anywhere in the world. So pack appropriately, and have fun.

If you travel a lot for work or personal pleasure than you surely have come across the times when the hair styling tools you have brought along to do your hair with do not work do to the discrepancies in voltage levels between some countries. This can be alleviated though by getting hair tools that will operate with either 110 or 220 voltage levels. Items like dual voltage straighteners from Karmin make looking your best while traveling as easy as it is at home and you do not have to have separate flat irons and blow dryers for when you travel.

Different altitudes and your hair

June 28, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Something that I have noticed every time I travel is the change in my hair and skin. I am not talking about some far away place you need to take a plane to. I mean maybe just a 4 hour drive! I would be thinking I look pleasing to the eye only to have 2 days after arriving both my skin and hair look awful. This happens because of change of altitude and different types of water. For athletes and mountain climbers changing altitudes causes extreme stress so how could it possibly not affect your skin and hair?


Take note that there is nothing you can do about this change, it can take up to 2 weeks but normally 1-3 days for your body to climatize. Even if you move somewhere your body and its changes are only temporary.  Other than hair and skin there are more changes that occur, within your whole body.   Some people get very sick, facial sweating, and nauseated for days only to mention a few of them.

You can, however try a herbal supplement, I found a site that carries one. It is supposed to help bring blood and energy to the lungs and has been shown to minimize and in some cases eliminate negative affects on the body. This site is, hopefully this will help those of you planning to go somewhere this summer or making a move. Remember though your air hand skin are the least of your concerns, altitude will affect every person everywhere in worse ways than your skin and hair. You can find out more about this by googling “Affects on the body with change in altitude” Till next time Good Luck,
