Question: How will you take care of your hair on the road?
I get this question a lot, and 100% of the time it has come from other women. And hey, I understand. We spend a lot of time and money to have healthy, stylish hair, don’t we?
Over the past year or so, we’ve been playing with our haircare routines to practice for the road.
- I switched to L’Oreal haircolor instead of salon coloring to save money
- Warren started cutting his own hair at home and grew a beard
- I experimented with the “no ‘poo” method (that’s no shampoo, in case you were wondering)
It will be easy for Warren to get haircuts on the road at any barbershop, especially since his cut is a #2 blade all around. Easy enough.
After wearing my hair in a pageboy with bangs for a while, I recently took the plunge and cut it short. And then last week it went REALLY short. In fact, Warren and I now have practically the same haircut.
It has been an adjustment, but I think I like it, especially because it takes so little time to fix each day.
After all our experimentation, I think we will both stick with our short haircuts, hair color in a box when I can get it (and my friends have assured me they will send care packages if I can’t find it), and buy shampoo and conditioner at each of our long-term locations so we don’t have to carry it with us (after the no ‘poo method I know I can go for days without shampoo by rinsing and “washing” my hair without shampoo).
And if all else fails, we both have great hats for the trip.
What other questions do you have about our trip preparations?
