Hair Scare

Every woman knows the challenges packing hair-care products for international travel.  The things we expose our hair to when we travel—dirt, sun, humidity, salt or pool water, dry and recycled airplane air—they’re not exactly hair-friendly, especially for curly girls.  Travel size products, low maintenance hair styles, and  protective hair can reduce tress stress.  Below is a list of hair salons around the world work with curly hair.
