into its shape when it's dry.
If you travel
a lot, go for a good, trim
haircut because, hair that gets wet often is better
off short. Short hair is easy to
comb and easy to dry.
If you have
long hair make sure you dry your hair as soon as it gets wet. Keeping a
Turkish towel and a travel hairdryer at your workplace is a good idea.
