Don’t you hate it when you come back from vacation with fried and frizzy hair? Yes, your tan might look fabulous, but the sun and the sea sure can do a number on your strands. Hair that is already dry, damaged, or over-processed hair is tough to manage on the best of days. Throw in the humidity factor, and you might want to bury yourself in the sand like a crab.
If you’re tired of looking like Barbados Monica from Friends, it’s time to up your hair care game before your next trip to the tropics (or to your neighbourhood beach!)
What You Need Is a Miracle in a Bottle!
Before you can even think about saying “Cheese!” for the camera on the beach, you need to revolutionize your hair care routine. Yves Rocher’s botanical balm is the perfect solution for travellers that want to look flawless for their next profile picture. Their formula makes it easy to pack light for a getaway and minimizes countertop clutter, not to mention it saves time in the hostel bathroom. The travel aficionado in you will love the backpack-friendly format (the smallest bottle is only 150 ml * in size). You won’t leave home without it!
Time to Ditch Your Other Bulky Hair Products
All you’ll need to carry is your shampoo, conditioner, and the botanical balm. Its versatility is only one of the reasons why backpackers love it. Did you know that the botanical balm is 98% derived from natural products and is silicone-free? The magic ingredient is organic Jojoba oil, rich in vitamins and minerals like vitamin B and C, zinc and copper. This power-packed recipe helps to repair, nourish, and strengthen your hair from the inside out. The scent, of course, is heavenly. This is the type of self-care you can feel good about on the go. And the pretty hair for Instagram pics doesn’t hurt either.
Simply apply a small amount of balm to the ends of your hair (avoiding the roots) and voilà! Beautiful hair has never been so easy.
You’ll love how this product makes your hair look and feel. Here are three ways to use it:
- on towel-dried hair before a brushing to nourish and protect before styling;
- on dry hair to soften and control frizz;
- overnight as a leave-in treatment for intense repair while you sleep.
See you later, straw hair!
Formulas Adapted to Your Hair Type
Yves Roche’s Botanical Balm comes in three different formulations, depending on your specific hair type: normal (for dry and damaged hair), light (for fine, dry, and damaged hair), and rich (for very dry, curly, or frizzy hair).
Botanical Balm – intense repair for dry and damaged hair
Even seasoned backpackers don’t have to put up with matted hair. There’s an easy fix, and it fits right in your pocket. With the help of organic jojoba oil, you can infuse your tired strands with healthy omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, bouncing them back to life. Jojoba is the key ingredient to fix dry, damaged hair. Run a small amount of Botanical Balm through your ends, and bam! You have salon-quality hair in the middle of Uganda.
LIGHT Botanical Balm – light-weight repair for fine, dry and damaged hair
Does a little trip to the sea leave your hair in a state of impossible knots? Fine hair at the beach can be a messy situation, but it doesn’t have to be! The light formula is perfect for preventing tangles. The addition of avocado oil makes it easier for the jojoba to penetrate your hair, putting those fatty acids to work. LIGHT Botanical Balm moisturizes and repairs fine hair without weighing it down or making it greasy.
RICH Botanical Balm – extra-rich repair for very dry, curly or frizzy hair
Humidity can be a nightmare when you have coarse or curly hair. If your crazy vacation curls have ever gotten in the way of a perfect beach selfie, it’s time for something new. Don’t hide under hats or opt for braids anymore. Let your beautiful curls loose with the RICH Botanical Balm. It contains coconut oil which encourages the fatty acids in jojoba oil to penetrate deep into the hair shaft, resulting in shiny, beautiful, and strong locks.
Now you can look like a runway model while travelling. With Yves Roche’s Botanical Balms, you’ll have perfectly styled hair in all your travel photos and extra room in your backpack for souvenirs.
*RICH Botanical Balm is only available in the 250ml size.
