How to combat frizzy hair while travelling

[ 1 ] December 10, 2010 | Alison Adey

Planning a round-the-world trip? The last thing you should be thinking about is your hair, but if you’re like Monica from Friends, even the thought of humid conditions can send your locks into a spin.

Fortunately for us, there’s a miracle cure that will leave locks soft, sleek and frizz-free for up to 4 months! The Keratin Brazilian Blow Dry is causing waves on the hairdressing circuits for all the right reasons. And i was lucky enough to try one out at the Pederson salon in Islington, London, at a discount price.

How the Keratin Brazilian Blow Dry works

Step 1) Hair is washed in Global Keratin Clarifying shampoo to remove any build-up of product

Step 2) After a rough blow dry (making sure the hair is 80% dry), the Global Keratin product is applied in sections, starting at the nape.

Step 3) The product is left in the hair for around 30 minutes to lock in all moisture. It is then straightened with exceptionally-hot straighteners. The roots of the hair are actually straightened 3 times for maximum results!

Step 4) The Keratin treatment needs to remain on the hair for 3 days – so you’re not allowed to wash your hair during this time.

Step 5) Wash your hair with salt-free shampoo and conditioner. This is really important as normal shampoo can strip out the treatment.

Step 6) Voila – glossy hair every time you wash!

Treatments start from £80 but can be as expensive as £220 in leading salons. Look out for discounts – is great for last-minute beauty deals. For more travel news don’t forget to follow me on Twitter!
