The importance of maintaining hair health

Travelling, especially during the summer months, brings with it a unique set of challenges for maintaining hair health. From increased sun exposure to chlorine-filled pools and salty ocean water, the elements can wreak havoc on your hair, leaving it dry, damaged, frizzy and prone to breakage. If that wasn't enough, the stress of travel , changes in climate, and exposure to different water types can also affect the overall health of your scalp.

One of the hardest things about going away is the lack of access to your usual hair care products. Many of us resort to using hotel-provided shampoos and conditioners to save on luggage limits, which may not be suitable for your hair type or address your specific concerns. 

Maintaining hair and scalp health while travelling is crucial, not only for aesthetic reasons,, but also for overall well-being. Healthy hair is a reflection of a healthy scalp, and neglecting hair care when travelling can lead to long-term damage and discomfort once you're back home. That’s why it's essential to prioritise Headcare, even when away from home.

Packing Tips and Tricks

Packing for a summer getaway? Here are some tips and tricks to ensure your ARKIVE Mini’s make it into your travel bag efficiently with extra space to spare:

Use Travel-Sized Toiletry Bags:

A real game changer, trust us! Invest in a compact toiletry bag specifically designed to contain travel-sized products. These bags often come with multiple compartments and zippered pockets, making it easy to organise and pack your favourite ARKIVE Mini’s.

Opt for Multi-Functional Products:

This is one for those of you who REALLY like to over pack. Choose ARKIVE Mini’s that serve multiple purposes to minimise the number of products you need to pack. For example, THE GOOD HABIT HYBRID OIL could double as a face and a body oil, saving you space and weight in your luggage.

On top of this, each little bottle has been designed to be re-used so you can decant any of your favourite full sized Headcare essentials time and again. Genius, right?

Pack Smartly:

Don’t run the risk of any leaks in your suitcase and place your ARKIVE Mini’s in the bottom of your suitcase or travel bag to ensure they don't get squished by heavier items being placed on top of your case during transit..

Bring Only the Essentials:

Prioritise the ARKIVE Mini’s that you know you'll need during your trip and leave behind any other products that you can live without. Focus on essentials like shampoo, conditioner, and styling products to keep your hair looking and feeling its best while on vacation.

Consider Solid Products:

For anything you simply can’t leave behind, consider products that come in solid bars. They’re a great option for travel since they're compact, lightweight, and TSA-friendly. Plus, they eliminate the risk of spills and leaks in your luggage.

Utilise Empty Spaces:

Don't forget to utilise any empty spaces in your luggage, such as inside your shoes or the gaps between larger items. These spaces can be perfect for stashing away your ARKIVE Mini’s and maximising every inch of space!

With these packing tips and tricks, you'll be able to bring along all your favourite ARKIVE Mini’s without sacrificing precious luggage space. So go ahead, pack smart, and enjoy your summer adventures with gorgeous, healthy hair wherever you go!

The bottom line…

With ARKIVE Mini’s by your side, you can enjoy the same quality ingredients and results as our full-sized products, all in a compact and oh-so-cute mini package. So, whether you're lounging by the pool, exploring a new city, or soaking up the sun on the beach, you can trust ARKIVE to keep your hair looking fabulous.
