Default Do you change your hair products for cruising?

I pack a richer conditioner
silicone serum
White Rain(if i can find it) hairspray- nothing holds up better to
sea conditions than this stuff. It works better than the high priced
salon hairsprays for hold and humidity.

I take a different shampoo because the shampoo that I take is readily available in a tube that's a good size for travel. Other than that, no.

Actually I do. I keep my carry-on packed with items I ONLY use for travel.

Special shampoos, facial creams, etc. When I get home...I just repack and replace any items I've use...and we're ready for the next trip.

Some of the creams, etc. would be too expensive to use on a daily basis...and that's what makes my carry-on special.

BTW: It is also comes in handy when we have to go on a quick weekend get-away...or a surprise over night stay. I know at least my carry-on is packed and ready to go.

I have been a shapoo/ condition junkie forever..but I think I will stop now..

I found, in Walgreens, a shampoo and conditioning balm called Bio Infusion, The balm jar is over 16 oz, and the shampoos is a liter pump. These are professional quality and I am hooked..Pricey, for me anyway, they were specially priced that week for $10.00 each, but surely will last a long time and come along on my NY eve cruise..

Trip, with her book & tea!

Default Do You Change Your Hair Products for Cruising?

I have very short hair, so I probably won't change anything, since humidity shouldn't bother the hair do. I do use hair wax, but it's ineffective when my hair gets too long. I'm scheduling a haircut right before the cruise!

For the Cruise of the Century, I presume humidity will be a problem for makeup. I'll use less in the daytime.

Nope. I use the ship shampoo/conditioner, and I style my short hair with a little gel and my fingers, and voila! It's done. If all else fails, I put on a baseball cap! Got better things to do with my time on a cruise!

I also use the ship's shampoo/conditioner but I also bring a styling gel so my hair will not frizz on those hot and humid days while I am in the caribbean. From what I have read, most shampoos and conditioner's contain the same basic ingredients. I would rather spend money on a good haircut.

If your hair is dry and curly, get a good conditioner and good hairspray. I'm going to try the white rain that someone suggested here. Maybe even a hair smoother to keep the frizzies down! But then I guess it depends how much time you're going to spend in the sea air at night. Daytime, I could care less because of the excursions.
