3FLOZ Travel Tips And Tricks : Summer Hair Care

The beach, the sand, the salt water, the sun… these are all reasons why we love the summertime. However, these aspects of summer can be very harmful, especially to your hair. Most people don’t realize the kind of damage that constant exposure to the summer elements can do to your hair. Heat from the sun can degrade the protective proteins in your hair (which can lead to an oxidation of color, giving your hair an unwanted brassy hue), wipe out shine and leave your hair feeling damaged and brittle. We all know what it feels like to have humidity frizz your hair, and chlorine and saltwater do an excellent job of sucking the moisture right out of your hair.

If you’re suddenly thinking, “Why do I love to spend so much time outside in the summer now?” we understand. We also understand that you’ll be spending a lot of time traveling and exposing yourself to these unfavorable situations all summer long, which is why we carry a wide range of travel sized products that are easy to bring along, and meant to fix your summer hair woes.

Let us help you fix all of your summer hair problems. First, let’s tackle the heat issue. Don’t let the sun and UV rays break down the protective proteins in your hair. Fight against the constant breakdown by fortifying your hair everyday. We prefer to use Serge Normant Meta Silk Shampoo and Conditioner. The sulfate-free formula of these products gently cleanses your hair without stripping your follicles. Also, Serge Normant products are crafted with Keravis, a vegetable protein proven to strengthen your hair, which aids in stopping your hair woes before they even start.

Perfect, now let’s work on the issue of frizziness and humidity. There’s a reason why Malin + Goetz’s Sage Styling Cream is a best seller. This styling cream will literally hold any hairstyle, hair type, etc, in place like you wouldn’t believe. Imagine a strong hold gel that isn’t stiff and still leaves you with the ability to run your fingers through your hair. Your hair will be resistant to humidity and stay beautiful as long as you need.

Finally, what to do about the lack of moisture? Take the time to deep condition your hair as often as you can to get that surge of moisture your hair needs and craves. We recommend that you bring a leave-in conditioner everywhere you go this summer. The Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner is one of our favorites. It reconstructs, moisturizes and helps to fight all of those unfavorable summer weather conditions and it’s spray bottle packaging makes for easy application. What’s not to love?

Those are some of our summer hair tips and tricks. Make sure you’re never left without these helpful products!

If you forget to stock up before traveling, don’t worry! You can very easily pick up these products at any one of our stores! Use the code “202024” for 20% off your entire purchase at any one of our in airport locations!

3FLOZ Travel Tips And Tricks : Working Out

The summertime is one of the busiest times of year for travel; and although travel is meant to be a means of relaxation and excitement, it can sometimes cause a lot of stress. Not knowing what to pack, being underprepared, and changing your day to day regimen can sometimes be a little too hard to handle.

Because of this, we decided to take this week to give you all some travel tips. What to pack, how to adjust, stuff like that. We can all use a little advice sometimes, right?

Today, we’re going to tackle the issue of how to continue working out on your summer travels. If you lead an active lifestyle, you know how addicting it is to stay fit. Some active people even say not working out gives them a headache, or makes them feel worse at the end of the day. If this sounds like you, then you’ve definitely spent a vacation or two obsessively searching for a good gym. Unfortunately, this can sometimes be hard to find. Luckily, our good friend David Kirsch has some excellent travel fitness tips that we’re happily passing along to you!

David Kirsch is our go-to authority and all things fitness and wellness. His “Sound Body, Sound Mind” approach is one we live by. We take his classes, use and carry his products, and trust his two decades of experience to the fullest!

Here are some of David’s best travel tips and workout moves:

Travel Tips:

Don’t have access to a gym or machines? Jumping rope is a great way to burn calories fast. About 15 minutes of jump rope torches 100 calories.

Try one of my 10-Minute Express Workouts right when you wake up to burn calories quickly and get your heart pumping before you even step out the door. String together a series of moves like Sumo Lunges, Bent-Leg Deadlifts, Shadow Boxing with light weights, or Spiderman Push-Ups. Bonus points for doing a couple of Express Workouts throughout the day, at your desk or at lunch, to burn even more calories.

Staying active is as easy as just bringing sneakers with you to work or when you’re traveling. Take a 30 minute power walk at lunch, or, if you travel often, squeeze in just 30 minutes of movement a day to keep your goals in sight.

 

Travel Workout Moves:

*      Squats: Target several large muscle groups for a total body workout and can be done in your hotel room

*      Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, arms on your hips. Focus your body weight and energy into your heels.

*      Bend your knees and squat down as if you are about to sit. Extend your legs and lift back up to your starting position.

*      10 repetitions

Planks: One of the worst things about traveling for work is hotel beds. They are not as comfortable as your home bed. Planks are the perfect exercise to strengthen your back and core and to reconnect your body

*      Place palms on the floor, shoulder-width apart. Core and abs are tight. Make sure your chest is right over your hands. Hold the position for 10 seconds. Work yourself up to 30 seconds, then 1 minute.

*      Make sure you are not dropping your hips. You don’t want to stress your lower back. If you are feeling it in your shoulders you are not in line with your hands.



Where will you be practicing these travel workout tips and tricks?

3FLOZ Employee Favorites : Kristy

Although we’ve already announced the products we’re giving away in this week’s #3FLOZGiveaway, we thought it’d be fun to keep talking about what products some of our employees love most.

So, let’s talk about our Marketing Coordinator Kristy’s favorite products! Kristy has a special affinity for hair care products, and her favorites definitely reflect that.

Malin + Goetz Essentials Kit: Kristy loves Malin + Goetz products, so this essentials kit is perfect. In one small, travel friendly case comes their Grapefruit Face Cleanser, Vitamin E Face Moisturizer, Bergamot Body Wash, Vitamin B5 Body Moisturizer, Peppermint Shampoo and Cilantro Hair Conditioner. Basically, an entire salon in a bag.

Malin + Goetz Styling Cream: You can’t leave home without this stuff. Malin + Goetz’s amazing styling cream will help hold your hair to no matter how you style it. In addition to it’s strong, natural hold, it adds extra moisture to your hair. Everyone needs extra moisture.

Sedu Revolution Compact Styler: Travel sized products were created because people don’t want to carry around bulky, full sized products. This can also apply to appliances. Why bring your full sized straightener when this one can conveniently fit in a purse?

BlowPro Blow Out Spray: Non stick hairspray. Because sometimes you’re traveling to climates that aren’t the friendliest to your hair.

The Laundress Stain Remover: Never ruin a shirt again! We get it, sometimes you spill some coffee or some red wine on your favorite white shirt. Immediately run to the bathroom, drop this product on your stain, and your shirt is as good as new. A travel must, for sure.

 

Don’t forget, this week’s #3FLOZGiveaway is open until tomorrow afternoon! Enter to win our CFO Neil’s favorite products or our Co-Founder’s favorite products now! Just tweet us at 3floz, retweet any #3FLOZGiveaway tweet and tell us what your favorite male or female product is to travel with!

3FLOZ Employee Favorites : Alexi

For those of you who may not know, 3FLOZ was founded by two amazing ladies, Kate and Alexi. They founded this company on the foundation of their love of travel and distaste towards packing dilemmas. They each bring their own personal taste to the company, and that’s what makes it a success.

Today we’re going to go over the travel items our Co-Founder Alexi can’t travel without:


Air Repair Cleansing Milk: It’s always smart to keep a good facial cleanser on you while traveling. Traveling is guaranteed to make you feel exhausted, and sometimes, a little… un-freshed. Running to the bathroom and washing your face real quick is a great way to wake you up and make you feel fresh and clean. This facial wash in particular is amazing because it lacks harsh detergents that drain your skin of moisture. Clear your skin of all dirt and make-up while simultaneously replenishing your skin with therapeutic botanicals that calm and hydrate.

Air Repair Eye Cream: Even if you’re not feeling wide awake while traveling, you can still look wide awake. Air Repair’s Eye Cream is formulated to instantly relieve your delicate under eye skin. A quick application of this eye cream will reduce puffiness, minimize fine lines, and brighten up the most important part of your face.

Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Dry Shampoo: Be as lazy as you’d like while traveling, with this dry shampoo it’s easy to clean up your locks without much effort. Alexi loves this dry shampoo because it’s talc-free, mineral and clay-based, so it naturally absorbs all impurities, excess oil and product build-up from your hair in one easy spritz. That, and it’s completely TSA friendly.

Avene Thermal Spring Water: Trust us when we tell you, the best way to feel refreshed is to use a facial mist. A quick spritz of moisture will freshen up your face, making you feel hydrated and comfortable, especially on a long flight which can sometimes dry you out.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel- 30 Pack: This individually packaged towelette is the only facial peel on the market to combine 5 Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids plus Retinol, antioxidants, vitamins AND soothing botanicals. Seriously, it’s amazing that such a little product holds so many beneficial products. Simply rub this towelette onto your face until the pad feels dry and you’ll look like a new woman!

So those are Alexi’s travel must haves! Interested in any of these products? We’ll be creating a surprise package of products from both Kate and Alexi’s favorite items to giveaway to one lucky lady who enters this week’s #3FLOZGiveaway on Twitter!

Here’s how:

3FLOZ Employee Favorites: Kate

We’re back with some more 3FLOZ employee favorites! Today we’ll be showing you what our 3FLOZ Co-Founder Kate always keeps in her travel bag. Kate started this company because she was always on the go and loved her daily beauty regime, and her favorite products really do reflect that.

Here are some of Kate’s favorite 3FLOZ products:

Bliss Triple Oxygen + C Energizing Cream: Always being on the go takes a toll on your skin. This energizing facial cream is the perfect solution. The combination of oxygen and vitamin C help to revive even the most fatigued, sallow, stressed skin helping to give you the healthy looking glow that every girl craves.

St.Tropez Self Tan Perfect Legs Spray: Another way to achieve that highly coveted glow is to fake it, of course. This St. Tropez aerosol spray instantly adds color and gives your skin an airbrushed finish. Since it’s TSA approved, there’s no excuse as to why you shouldn’t bring this product with you every where you travel.

Murad Essential-C Night Moisture: Your skin naturally regenerates itself throughout the night. Because of this, it’s extremely important to pay extra attention to your skin throughout the night. Applying a night cream a half hour before bed can help hydrate through the night and improve your skin tone by morning.

David Kirsch A.M. Daily Detox: A good and healthy morning routine can set the course for your entire day. Kate loves to give her body a daily cleanse and a surge of antioxidants. The simplicity of the ready-to-go packets is just an added bonus.

Stay tuned ladies. Tomorrow we’re going over our other Co-Founder’s favorite products. As part two of our #3FLOZGiveaway, we’re planning on giving away a combination of our two Co-Founder’s favorite products in a Twitter giveaway!

Since we carry such a large range of beauty products at our company, one of our most frequently asked questions is “What do you recommend?” So, to answer that, we’ve decided to spend the week answering these questions by taking each day to go over some of our employees top five favorite products carried by 3FLOZ.

 

Today we’re covering our Chief FInancial Officer Neil’s top 5 favorite 3FLOZ products, because men’s products need a little lovin’ too.

Anthony Body Cleansing Gel: this hydrating and conditioning cleansing gel is the perfect way to keep yourself refreshed and stress-free while traveling thanks to it’s citrusy scent.

Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer: If you’re frequently shaking hands, you need this hand healer. This hand lotion is non-greasy, rich and helps to heal your dry hands, instead of just masking dryness.
