Women who fly a lot, like I do, all know this problem: you get on a plane and have important business meetings scheduled immediately after landing. There is no time to go to the hotel to change and do hair and makeup. If you are flying back on the same day you want to keep it light and only take the essential briefcase with you. There are a few very simple things you can do to make sure you arrive fresh and energetic with manageable hair.

For the launch of his Jetsetter Kit, Octavio Molina, stylist of the rich and famous, has come up with 6 Essential Hair Care Travel Steps, which are perfect for traveling and more importantly, arriving in style. All you need is a small travel kit, salt spray, dry shampoo, hair oil, a small natural bristle brush and a hair band. Make sure to keep the restrictions for liquids in your cabin luggage in mind. These items easily fit in your purse or briefcase and make a real difference. The tips are easy to follow and the result is absolutely convincing. You will never have to worry about messy hair after the flight again!

Octavio’s 6 Essential Hair Care Travel Steps

  • Apply a small drop of your favorite hair oil in the palm of your hand and apply to the midshafts and ends. The air in planes is extremely dry and hair oil will provide moisture throughout the flight.
  • Pull your hair up in a loose bun or ponytail to keep your hair manageable and free from static and flyaways.
  • 30 minutes before landing, apply a light mist of salt spray on your roots. Let air dry.
  • Once the salt spray has dried, apply a dry shampoo around the hairline, crown and sides.
  • Apply a few drops of your favorite hair oil from midshaft to ends and run a natural soft bristle brush through the hair to give it bounce and life again.
  • Drink water throughout the flight to stay hydrated.
