The primary purpose of going on holiday is to relax. However, that is not to say that you can’t look great while getting that much-needed rest.
Then there are the numerous pictures you are going to take to allow you to keep lifelong memories of the experience. If you are dealing with hair loss, what used to be pure excitement before a holiday could now be diluted by nagging anxiety about how you will look in all those photos.
Whether or not your holiday pictures find their way on to Instagram, it is not vain to want to look your best. That is why you need to pack a small but well-thought-out arsenal of hair care products.
