You may want to consider a different attachment method while you are travelling so you don't have to do such an extensive removal and cleaning process.

There are daily application water soluble adhesives that might work well for you like Tensive Gel, It Stays, and Gotta Be Glued.  You can likely find them all on Amazon. Got to Be Glued is sold in most grocery stores, pharmacies, Target and Walmart.  They can be easily removed with water. You might want to experiment with each one to see which provides you with the most secure hold.

You might also want to have an elastic band sewn into your wig to provide even more of a grip. There are also Wig Grips that you can use to attach your wig.  You might also try some silicone strips in the cap of your wig but they might need to be permanent so you should consult with your stylist prior to going with this option.

I hope this helps. Have a wonderful trip to Thailand. You'll find a method that works for you with a bit of experimenting.  Good luck! :-) 

Ok, if this was me I would find two reasonable priced synthetic wigs that you can take with you. Hopefully your hair style is not really long hair because it might be quite warm there. I recommend the Noriko brand because they have styles that have a monofiliment top and look and feel pretty natural. I would buy Double side tape from Hair Direct, I like Supertape and you will have some security. You can sleep in one of them and then have the second one to place on your head in the morning, maybe with a baseball cap or another type hat. Name Brand Wigs is a great place to buy them, best pricing around.  

Most likely you take a towel into the bathroom in morning, just put your second wig in it. This process takes no time. You would have to take a small bottle of shampoo and conditioner for synthetic wigs which you can buy from Hair Direct, travel size. You can friend me if I can be of further help with ideas to keep it on the down low. LOL
